Back at it… sort of

I’ll admit it – I missed a full week of workouts.  I don’t remember the last time that happened.  I didn’t feel the twitchy feeling that I usually get when I miss a workout.  This concerns me a bit – fear of that twitchy feeling is what helped me get on track.  I hated having an excess of energy just sitting in my muscles.

 

I’m still not feeling well, but I’m feeling better.  I got back at it today.  The workout was NOT fun – I really had to grind it out.  But, I got it done, and even added some cleans at the end just to have some fun.  I had some nausea when my heart rate got really high, but I managed by taking a longer rest period.  I may just be burned out – this is far and away the most stressful time of year at my job.  The kids are lonely and sad, and generally triggered by their abandonment issues.  I leave work each day with a tension headache on top of all the other generalized crappiness I have going on in my body.  But, I got in my lift.  I didn’t wimp out on my weights or my reps.  And, I’ll go back tomorrow.  And the next day…
