Feeling like all this heavy work + a zillion deadlines at work is catching up with me mentally. I have been feeling a little stressed out lately and I was having trouble sleeping last night. I’m definitely looking forward to a couple weeks of rest before the meet right now. My body is asking for some rest, I can tell. Only a couple more squat and deadlift sessions left and then it’s nothing but couch!
My training session was good yesterday. I wore my singlet so that I could feel more comfortable in it at the meet. I looked like a giant baby, but it was comfy, so that’s good. I worked up to a single at 242# on squats and did some volume at lower weights (220# for 5 and for 3). The single was pretty heavy feeling, but nothing unmanageable. As I said, I am feeling a little run down at the moment so I am not too concerned by how it felt. I think my strength is almost back to where it was before my back injury and that makes me happy. I don’t know if I’ll be setting PRs at the meet, but I think I will be putting up numbers that I am proud of.
Dog training is also going well. Look at these two hansom fellas — ‘sit and stay’! HOORAY!
