Back in the groove…

I'm a week in to my new routine, and I'm feeling pretty good. In the last week I've had one morning where things didn't go quite as planned, where I ended up sleeping in until 0930.

Recovery…

Driven…

Reasons for optimism…

Cardio day

It's only been a few days, but the work is already paying off. Today was a cardio day, and I ended up doing one and three-quarter miles on the treadmill tonight, in forty-five minutes.
