I’ll be the first to admit that ringing in the New Year can be severely overrated; too much hype and often laden with disappointment.
However, 2009 has started well for me and I’m truly encouraged despite the economic crisis that surrounds all of us. In regards to training, my energy levels have been off the charts these past few weeks and my routine seems to have found a groove. My body is responding extremely well to my new split, and I hardly feel my age lately (I will turn 39 in March). I’m truly hoping the injury bug will miss me for awhile and I can continue to push myself slightly past my limitations. Age has a funny way of keeping you humble…
On a personal note, this week has shown me many blessings. This past Thursday I received the Honorable Mention award for 2008 at our annual sales award banquet. Today, I pulled the trigger on a new truck; my 1st vehicle purchase in over 7 years.
Although we’re only a few weeks into the New Year, I’m curious to hear how others are doing. I read many positive comments from members and thought it might be a good idea to start a thread to share our experiences together.
With that said, are you optimistic for the months ahead, and if so, what plans are on your agenda for 2009?
