Today was yet another day when I had to rush through my lifting. Thankfully, it was light weights, so I could get through it quickly.
My Garmin HRM Pro strap seems to have died. I went through the troubleshooting and then got on chat with Garmin support. After a few questions, they set me up with a link to order a replacement. I can’t complain about that.
I felt like I had to rush to get to my lifts this morning. We had to go to my step grandson’s birthday and had no idea when we were going. Thankfully, my lifts were light, and I got out in the garage early in the morning and got through them pretty quickly. Had fun seeing all the grandkids later.
Today was a really challenging day for me in the garage. I didn’t sleep so great last night to start things off. To top things off, I had to do PR level back squats at two hundred and seventy-five pounds and then near Pr deadlifts at two hundred and ninety-five pounds.
I am really feeling tired and run down today. I had heavy back squats for my strength and wasn’t feeling it. Much to my surprise, I made it through them at the PR of two hundred and seventy pounds, which really surprised me. I went light on the power cleans and presses to play it safe, though.
Today I did my old Crossfit Trinium one rep max back squat weight for sets of five today, and they felt great. The other lifts were less aggressive. Later I did an old WOD with numerous lunges and that felt good.
This was one of those days that I had very low expectations for. I’ve been gassy as hell and didn’t sleep too well last night because of it. My lifts were all on the heavy side to add to that. In the end, everything went well, and I made all of my lifts, even with dropping the stupid 2.5 pound change plate on my toe.
Growing up, I was always fascinated with how things work. There were countless times that I took things apart to try to understand, and I got my ass kicked for it.
This morning, when I woke up, I was feeling really run down and didn’t know how my lifts were going to go. I knew I had heavy back squats then fairly heavy strict presses, but it all turned out great.
We were finally able to get out for a nice walk this evening. There’s just been too much going on. We saw some dogwoods blooming at Memorial Park.
