I did my first session of programming towards meet prep lat night. It was intense. I thought I'd already been working hard, but this was a new level....
And I feel good. The targets we set forb the meet seem high, but with an apparent plan for increased intensity.... suddenly it feels less scary.
We also talked about making weight. I am about 15 overweight yet. I am not aiming for super-lean, but around 27% body fat would be good. I'm not trending down fast enough, but Jerimiah figures with the increased intensity, I'll see better traction there as well. We'll keep an eye on that over the next few weeks and see if we have to modify the caloric balance.
