I know that it has been a while since I last posted. I have been awfully tied up in numerous things, including digging a garden (a topic for another day). I have also been experimenting with different workout regimens in an effort to keep it fresh.
In short (because writing on this topic properly is decidely not short), mixing it up by changing lifting routines, alternating cardio intensities, and taking an unplanned day off every now and again as my body dictates, has been a breath of fresh air. It has allowed me to recover from previous efforts in order to solidify my base for the next push.
Having loosened things up a bit, it is now time to ratchet down the discipline once again for a fresh 12 week push. Alternating between these two phases, structure and more free flowing, reminds me of life in the Church - fast and feast. There is a time for each in proper measure and each breathes life into the other…
So be encouraged to… Breathe!
