I'm loving the strength program. It's only day 2 and the weights are very manageable at this point, but I think it's more that I'm back into a scheduled routine. I was doing that 5-3-1 program for 3 months. I got used to checking my chart and finding a complimentary wod to do. No questions, no excuses. Once I stopped over the holidays, I think I got a little lazy. Started to fall into the 'eh, I don't want to do that today'. But now I'm back at it and happier... so far. I'm sure in the next 3-4 weeks I'll be bitching about how I'm hurting and tired and sore and so over lifting heavy stuff..... nah, I'll just repeat my mantra 'I lift things up and put them down.'
