As boring as it seems, today was another quality lift and stretch session. I'm really trying to focus on the quality of each rep of every set that I do. In fact I would have to say that I'm doing fewer exercises and stretches yet getting a better result just because of this. It's not that I ever cut corners, it's just that I'm really trying to maintain focus as a mental discipline exercise. I like it.
I was thinking today how much different my training is then when I started back after my Achilles surgeries in 2005. Then I was obsessive about my plan and it's execution. I'm just as devoted but I'm a hyper listener to my body and think nothing about changing the entire day if I have to. Before it was almost a failure if I didn't complete everything as planned. Today I may cut something short, make something longer, add an exercise or drop one simply based on intuition.
At first I had a hard time with the idea that I was not "sticking with my plan", but now I feel I'm training much smarter and getting better results and, knock on wood, I'm I injured less. I never would have thought that 10 years ago. Whatever works baby! Have a great day and thanks for being here! Bubba
