Suffice it to say that I could barely walk up the steps today after this working and I can’t even imagine how I’m going to feel tomorrow morning. The front squats totally toasted my legs as I haven’t really lifted anything heavy like that in months. My old 1 rep max for front squat used to be 215 lbs, so 190 for 2 after a year long injury is something I am so proud of.
The sprints on the other hand almost made me vomit. Seriously. There is only one other workout I’ve ever done where I was very close to tossing my cookies, which was an EMOM of sled sprints for 10 minutes. Today was a close second. My legs just would not operate, and although I was speedy, I felt like I was dying. I came home and have done nothing but eat, watch Fear the Walking Dead and took Goose on a mini-walk before it started raining.
I am working the early shift tomorrow and Wednesday, so those will most certainly be days off.

Yesterday I spent literally the whole day on the couch reading and ultimately finishing this:
My sister in law and another friend have signed up together to receive Bookworm each month. This include two new books that are signed by the author with a bunch of other goodies as well. This one was in the box this month and my sister in law gave it to me to read first. Initially I was skeptical but after a few pages I was hooked. It was such an easy read that I ended up finishing it last night.
Sidenote: two months before today I would never be able to have the time to read an entire book in one day. I cannot say how amazing my schedule finally is. Even though most of my days off are spent by myself or with Goose, I will never not take advantage of that time.
We also spent yesterday watching Madam Secretary, which we are totally hooked on. We are almost through the first season and we just love the plot, the humor and the way the characters just mesh really well. We literally look forward to watching it every night.
What are some great shows you guys are into right now?
I just finished up The Walking Dead season and can’t wait for the next season. I’m getting caught up on Fear the Walking Dead. I love Nashville and House of Cards as well.
