Dallas Journey to the Olympia – Day 26

Day 26 : September 10, 2016


I really am starting to see more and more value in doing these logs going over the previous day rather than having to turn them in before the day has really even started. A lot can change and go on during the day itself and I feel that the content is more valuable and real if we are able to write these in real time as they happen and submit them the following day. The content is still being uploaded on a daily basis this way but its just better and more current. Yesterday was a great example of this. 

Notes From Matt

Yesterday was one of those days that we really just had to take things an hour at a time. Dallas came down with a 24 hour bug going to bed on Friday night and was having a had time keeping things down. Our daily schedule needed to be put on the back burner for the sake of doing what was best for his rest and recovery. We went into the day with no plan of food which is about as rare as a unicorn sighting for me but the “goal” was to get hydration in first and foremost and then when he could eat choose food sources that sat well with him. We typically train after meal 1 and yesterday I took dallas through a training session after 3 meals and a lot of rest. Today he is feeling much better and his look also benefitted. There was a lot more good than harm that came from yesterdays extra rest and modified training. Although his food was probably lower than what it would have been otherwise it allowed him the time for extra rest and what seemed like a negative within the moment turned positive today. 


Be sure to following along today on IG and Snapchat as we document the training day!
