I was hoping to be feeling better today, but it quickly became clear that everything is still butts…
Squat – 2x5x185lb
DL – 4x205lb
Yep, that’s all I got today.
I’m just exhausted (sick? poor sleep? stress?) and my mental state is starting to fray, too. After my first squat set I sat on a bench and wanted to cry. I talked myself into a second set with the promise that there would be only two, and then afterwards was utterly defeated by a light deadlift and said "enough!"
This week isn’t going to get any better either. There is so much, both at work and at home. When things get stressful my first instinct is avoidance, but that is not the correct choice here. I can’t. I’m going to have to prioritize, grit my teeth, and deal with as much as I can.
The gym is something I can let slip right now, which is sort of a relief to realize. I think I’ll resolve to keep it easy and stress-relieving for the rest of the week. Easy runs! Elliptical! Now is not the time to chase mammoth lifts (and beat myself up when they’re not cooperating).
