Hit the walls hard today — I really wanted to send that blue V5 a couple more times, but only managed to do so twice more (along with a finish of the second half again).

Super frustrating, but all part of the process. I’m excited to be nearing my 200th send of the year!

My next retrospective is coming up, so I’m looking to close out this stretch strong.

Here are the day’s stats:
