I went for a reduced warm up and was relatively happy with the top set. Upper back felt much tighter and overall better than last week and didn't have to humiliate myself reracking. In the first down set I was alarmingly slooooooow, attempted a second set and racked it after 3 reps fearing an injury.
Talk about the stark contrast of the last few months VS my SL days, when I hardly ever failed a squat and was pretty confident about it. Those couple scary days back in june have hurt my relationship with the lift and a rack could be the right medicine.
Later in the evening I was feeling like a bag of bones and pain, and literally collapsed to bed. However I woke up around 5 am still feeling like rundown and couldn't get to sleep again so I watched some Treme until about 8 am, when my head felt sleepy enough to give it another try. Eventually I woke up at 12.45 but that wasn't uninterrupted sleep either.
Today is better but still beaten, the weekend's very welcome. I'm eating more than usual and my weight is stable, at about 76.7 when carbed up and 75.3 on my low carb days, with my body fat still slightly under the 20% mark the last time I checked.
I don't know where the blind could lead the sightless
but I'd still like to witness
