The dog will definitely turn me into a morning person, and I’m a-ok with it. Got up early this morning to take her outside. Afterward, I went down to the basketball court for a morning ollie session.
On the car ride there, I told myself anything between 50 and 90 is a good goal today. I was shooting for 90 but gave myself that minimum.
Well some part of me got an inch of low-bar and took it a mile. It’s like I gave myself permission to half-ass. I’m not sure what was up exactly, but my first set of 10 was a mess. Maybe 3 sloppy makes? And mistakes I haven’t made in a while!
After the first set, I took a breath and did 10 standing ollies to “clear the mechanism.” Something my dad always told me when I was having a really bad day on the little league pitching mound.
It helped. I did 30 more ollies “successfully” but my legs felt sluggish. Didn’t take long to decide that I’d settle on my minimum goal for the day.
Still got out, and still on track for 1,000 July ollies though. I feel good about that.
July Ollie Count: 460
