Pull day started with a 15 minute run at a leisurely pace on sore, sore legs. "What’s good after leg day? I know, let’s go for a run!" Oooh, it was a drag. Then I started in on the rest:
Barbell row – 4x5x95lb
Bicep curl – 3x10x25lb
Bent-over row – 3x10x30lb
Lat pulldown – 3x10x37
Face pull – 3x10x90
Seated row – 3x10x70
Someday I’d like to be able to bump the weight up on barbell rows. Someday.. Don’t know why this is such a tough one for me! It’s time to put more weight on the bent-over row, and another 10 on seated row was hard. I did make it through all 3 sets of bicep curls at the new, higher weight, this time– yay!
I haven’t been sleeping well lately. A few months ago, I started taking a little 3mg melatonin before bed, and it seemed to help a lot– I could finally fall asleep in a timely fashion! That bottle ran out, and I couldn’t find the same kind, so I went to 5mg– and I swear it doesn’t work. I ought to just wean myself off it altogether; I’m pretty sure it’s not meant for everyday use.
Usually, if I can’t sleep in the bedroom with my partner for whatever reason, I take my pillow and blankets to the guest bedroom and fall asleep promptly after that. Not lately! I toss and turn for hours more.
We go to bed at 10:30pm and I’m realizing that, if I can’t get to sleep until 2am, I’m wasting 3 hours that I could be using for something productive. That’s probably not the best attitude to take.
