I meant to write last week after this happened....but well....I am trying to create this habit, but studying has taken priority.
Last week, I had that nasty 5x3 80% dead lifts AGAIN...I went into the gym thinking, "ok, just get at least one more of these lifts than you got last week." Just get a little better today. Seems like a plan. I didn't go in saying "kill this!"
So guess what happened?
go on, guess....
I only got one set.
COULD NOT MOVE THAT BAR.
and you know what I did? I moved on.
I just moved on.
Hersch said...lifting isn't linear Mona.
Fuck yeah...what the hell is.
So I moved on and didn't berate myself.
I'll try again this week. Well, maybe not. Turns out I have an injury. Something in my gut, my abs, my obliques....is NASTY. Got a massage this weekend and I am complete crooked. Walking with a protected gait. Twisted even.
It hurts, I hurt....She thinks it's from a bad lift...Probably some truth to that, but I am always sitting...sitting and studying. Sitting and worrying about the test....sitting and taking practice tests.
I'm not sure what I will do this week in the gym. Maybe not lift heavy or not lift at all.
Oh, and I have to travel to Oklahoma this weekend, right before the test.
