Ugh legs are sore as hell from yesterday. It's expected though, after a couple of weeks of inconsistent training.
For the handful of regular readers, you probably noticed that my posting frequency looked liked it had gassed out recently. Well, my family-in-law came to visit for the past couple of weeks, meaning I would be forced to take extra rest days from my regular training.
It also meant extra time to recover from the grind of perpetual PR's I've been setting everyday for the past few months.
It's like a forced de-load based on stuff happening outside of my basement home gym.
To sum up the last 2 weeks, I went to Niagara Falls for a few days, Toronto for a few days, went to a few buffet restaurants, got sick, did a lot of walking around, went sight seeing and a lot of wait training while everyone went shopping.
Didn't get thrown off the PR train though! I did manage to squeeze in some training sessions and hit a few new personal records:
+10 lb PR!
Got stuck at the sticking point momentarily. Always feels a lot longer than it actually is.
Missed the 4th rep on paused RGBP because of allergies/bloody nose with blood running down my throat/too weak/excuses, so got this instead. 4 reps would have been a PR.
+60 lb PR! Been chasing a 2 rep max for some time. Somehow ended up with 3 reps in the past instead of 2. After a couple of weeks of inconsistent training and hours of cardio (walking), I'm finally weak enough to get a 2RM.
An EZPZ, getting-back-into-the-swing-of-things PR.
