Don't forget rest and recovery!

Love the looks of your plan! You can do it!

I don't know about you, but I'm kind of liking the idea of lots of base building and zone 2 coming up this winter. I don't's kind of like a hibernation thing for me. I just like slow and steady work until it's time to get outside again.


All sounds very doable and smart! You are going to have a great year!
