"To give any less than your best is to sacrifice a gift" - Steve Prefontaine
For me this really hits home in all areas. Some days you feel amazing and others its a real struggle to push forward. As long as deep down you know you are giving 100% of what you are capable at that time, it will always be worth it. These past few weeks have been a little harder for me. I have actually had a few setbacks with allergies and a cold, but I still kept things on track and worked around it with one goal on my mind...Improve! I also just passed the 11 week out mark to the IFPA Pro USA and I am weighing right at 206lbs. I am defiantly leaner and stronger at this weight, so I am pretty excited to finally see some of the improvements I have made this last year. This is also really helping with my motivation and I have never been so focused, but at the same time loving every second of the journey. Here are a few training highlights from this past week.
Had a great one and here's how it went.....
