GUYS. WORKING OUT IS SO HARD WHEN IT IS COLD AND THERE ARE COOKIES AND BREAD BAKING IN YOUR OVEN AND YOUR ASTHMA IS TERRIBLE AND IT'S SLEETING OUTSIDE AND YOU JUST WANT TO NAPPPP
But actually, working out has been really difficult for me this winter. it's been hard for me to get up the energy to work out every day: every other day seems to basically be my limit, and sometimes I can work out two days in a row, which puts me at working out 4 times a week and sometimes five. I think it's because it's cold and I'm out of shape so my asthma is bad, and so working out doesn't feel particularly rewarding just yet. I need to step it up.
For our readZ0rZ!!1lol that don't know what our workout plan looks like, we are focusing on cardio and strength gains over winter break, culminating in a timed mile on February first. I think a timed mile will be an effective and simple way to gauge how diligently people have been training, even though running a mile has very little to do with Ultimate, skill or strength-wise. After February first, we will turn our focus to speed, agility, and strength. Here is our workout schedule up to February first:
