No blog posts over the last few days. Thursday morning I woke up with a nasty sore through that merged into a bit of a chest cold.
I hydrated and fueled up like crazy over the weekend. I ate good food and I ate bad food.
Today I was able to feel good enough to get a training session in to see if I could sweat out some of the funk.
I have been monitoring my sleep using an App called Sleep Cycle Timer. I have used it before in the past and love it.
Bob noticed I looked leaner. That is a win for me because Bob spends most of his time calling me a fat guy weightlifter. I am pretty happy about that.

Hours of Sleep: 5hrs.
Mood: Grogy. Always feel that way waking up this early on Mondays.
Coffee with Heavy Cream
3oz Grass Fed Meat Ball with Pesto
Chicken Breast Salad with Vinaigrette, Walnuts and Cranberries.
24oz Freshly Squeezed Orange Juice
2 Chicken Breasts + 1 Chicken Thigh

A: 210kg (462lbs), 230kg (506lbs) x 1 rep. I felt good on my lifts today. I like that I was able to lift 230kg today. Its the first time I have lifted over 500lbs since the CrossFit Football Cert 10 weeks ago when I pulled my Hamstring. I am going to keep building my deadlift. I'd love to see myself break a 275kg lift.
B: OUCH!! Break Down: 31/30/30/29/26/23/26/24/23/26 = 268 cals. The goal of this is to eventually build my capacity to 300 calories in 10 min.
C: 65kg. I was ruined after the Airdyne. Couldnt do anything.
Great training day.
Cheers to Burning Adductors!
