0 BOHHR Training Program Summary
Just got back from Hawaii this morning. It was a fantastic trip - went scuba diving, snorkeling, ate some fantastic meals, soaked up the sun, etc. Am feeling a bit jet-lagged right now (i.e., only slept 4 hours or so on the plane), but have decided to work off that sluggish feeling by -- you guessed it -- running!
Yes, I'm barely conscious (Hahahaha!) after an 11-hour+ plane flight, but I think it'll do my entire system some good to get moving again.....
I think that sometimes it's important to do challenging stuff like this because it's good for us, & not just go down the path of least resistance. Because it's the way to move forward.
As the saying goes, "If I always do what I've always done, I'll always get what I've always gotten." But if I put in a bit more effort & try to improve the way I'm doing something, then that not only creates possibilities/opportunities for growth, but also increases hope & motivation to keep moving forward towards even bigger goals.
But enough motivational pep talks for one afternoon. Let's get down to business & talk about the next phase of training.
Today is the first day of the BOHHR program. Here's a brief overview:
