Was very surprised to find I woke up feeling great today! Yesterday was a VERY high NEAT day, first half started in my office, but then Scott (my advisor) got antsy and so myself, a colleague, and Scott went out to a 600 acre plot of land owned by zoology to scout field sites... It was basically a 5hr hike through woods/briars, and though it was just walking it was a LOT of it lol. My legs got eaten alive by briars and ticks because I made the mistake of wearing shorts and boots. I think that might actually have been good for me though, like active recovery because I was really feeling great this morning. We had some GNARLY storms roll through about midnight-3am which kept waking me up. Didn't let it stop me from smashing some PR's today though! The workout went great, and although I only got 2 sets of deads resetting, the program technically calls for touch and go reps I felt good enough to do cardio today rather than tomorrow. That gives my legs 2 full days of no work before I tackle another squat PR on Sunday!
PS, I'm getting my puppy tomorrow morning, so expect pictures!
