There hasn't been too much going on, just trying to rest and recover from the last few weeks.  Today was my last heavy breather workout before the competition next weekend, here is a quick clip of it:

My last few weekends have been brutal preparing for this Regionals competition. This is what my last few Saturday's and Sunday's have looked like, not too much of a social life trying to fit these in:

After all this I definitely feel prepared. Though I have been pretty beat up every week recovering from these weekends so training during the week has typically been lighter practice.  This week I have been practicing some of the skills involved in the competition trying to get a strategy.  It's been a lot lighter and I have been pretty beat up which has made me nervous because I need to feel great going into next weekend. I have plenty more time to rest and recover but since I have more time on my hands I get paranoid about every little thing going on with my body and the anxiety is building.  Now it's just waiting time and I'm tired of waiting.

  1. Hey Joey, I am down to 7 days left myself and need the recovery time. Looks like you have been very busy. Amazing job on the amrap t2b! Good luck this weekend!
