I let her know, in my experience:

~5% of workouts feel AMAZING and I feel like the strongest, fastest, jackedest worker-outer alive.

~5% of workouts feel absolutely terrible, my strength just isn’t there, I leave feeling deflated and like I’ve never worked out in my life.

~90% of workouts feel totally unremarkable. No big breakthroughs, no PR’s (by design), nothing really stood out and so in a way it felt like going thru the motions. I also let her know that *THIS IS WHERE THE MAGIC IS HAPPENING* These workouts are money in the bank toward progress.

Once past the beginner-trainee phase, some of that initial honeymoon feeling will likely wear off.

We’ll have amazing days a small chunk of the time. We’ll have terrible days a small chunk of the time. But most of the time, it’ll feel pretty….well…boring. Productive, but not like we’re moving mountains or doing anything groundbreaking.

Staying showing up, regardless of how workouts feel, is truly everything.

Note: The longer we’ve been at it, the more difficult each next PR is to achieve. Which only makes those rare special days that much more rewarding, knowing how hard we had to work to earn them.
