30 Day Cold Shower Challenge
Today marks one month since I started the COLD-SHOWER CHALLENGE.
What have I learned?
-It's good to embrace challenges
-Being uncomfortable is good for your mind
-Doing something you don't want to do every day will give you energy, confidence, discipline
-The first few seconds always suck.
-Don't stick your toe in the water, GO ALL IN!
-Embracing the suck will toughen your mind.
I'm going to keep taking the five minute cold shower each day. I like the jolt it gives me and the reminder to get out of my comfort zone.
Over the past month I have been training without a program.
Crazy, I know!
I've done many different routines over the years, all of them I made progress with.
Right now, I need to be free to train how I see fit, week to week.
I have a general idea of what I want to do for the week. When it's time to train I may stick to my "plan" or adjust at the last minute.
It works for some folks. Others need more structure and a clear program.
Where I'm at in my training and life in general, I'm enjoying the spontaneous nature of my workouts.
For example: I know I want to train Trap-bar Deadlifts, Press, Rows, Romanian Deadlifts this week.
These lifts can be done one each day or combined with others.
It doesn't matter which day I perform each exercise either.
Generally, I have a good idea how many sets/reps I want to complete and the rest may be adjusted during the workout.
Cardio has been more structured as I am starting from scratch with running after many years away from it.
Having a good slow adaptation period is critical to avoid overuse injuries when you haven't run in awhile.
(especially when you are over 35 years old)
