The beauty of a structured squat program is that - for just about everyone - it works.  Assuming you consistently make all of the training days, use reasonable and correct loading (i.e. don't start calculating based off of a "fantasy" max that you technically have NEVER made but think you could in ideal conditions when the weather is just right, you've eaten your ideal breakfast at the optimal time, and you're using your lucky bar and rack that you wish everyone else would stop using because WTF don't they know it's yours), take your recovery seriously, and trust in the program.  Unless, of course, it's the vernal equinox - in which case there's no way you can do legs today, Bro:

(Some language NSFW)

Sadly the vernal equinox has already passed this year, so you're outta' luck with that excuse.

In all seriousness, if you want to reap the most benefit these next couple of months then trust the program, be consistent in making the training days, recover like an athlete, and hopefully 8 weeks from now you'll be enjoying the rewards.

Here's some Day 1 motivation for you.  Fist, the Squirrel with a PR of 235 lbs (at 108 lbs bodyweight) following our last squat program:

And Coach Sarah with a PR of 353 lbs (at 165 lbs bodyweight) the last time she did a very similar program we're about to start on Tuesday:

I need some new PR videos at the end of these 8 weeks so I can stop posting these two.  Who's it gonna be?
