And just like that it's over. Another year, another rep, another heal strike and another spin around. We ran on the treadmill, we spun it out on the bike and hit the weights. I'm actually proud of my year. Came along pretty strong emotionally and physically. Still got a long path ahead of me but there is no looking back.
One last gym visit making it 20 for the month and who knows how many in the last year. The gym being the 3rd most visited place by me behind Work and Home. I went to bed early last night so I could get in a great workout before I hit the work. Boo! Nah, work is good. Today was a Chest, Tri and Shoulder Day. HIT A PR! It's only 5lbs more but I hit the PR in the Incline BB Chest Press. Now I'm not lifting super heavy but someday I'll get there. Compared to a year ago it's a big jump of weight for me. So it's been a good path I'm on!

That was a fun Lanebreak to end 2022 on the bike pic.twitter.com/561NIBWxVE— Joel McKenna (@the17thman) December 31, 2022
After that I hit a 30 minute HITT and HILLS Tread block from the Peloton App. I went up from Beginner to Intermediate and damn how humbling it was. I jumped up cuz' I've done all the Beginner HITT and HILLS workouts. Guess I just gotta go back and repeat them. During the HILL portion I had to powerwalk instead of jog them. That's not bad but not great. I just need to sneak in more running when possible. Once or Twice a week isn't gonna do much. Need to be more consistent even if it means less Bike classes. Speaking of which I topped off 2022 with a 20 minute Lanebreak ride.
Tomorrow should be Back and Biceps and on Monday it should be a Leg Day! Cheers to 2023!
