It’s been a few weeks since I have written. It’s weird; I enjoy it, and yet when I stopped for a bit (some business travel had me busy), it was not something I craved to get back to. I was worried that the same may happen to the gym. That I might have lost the love for it.
As it happens, I didn’t. Friday was tough: struggled with everything. Saturday was better. And today, while not a heavy weight day, felt like old times. Back in the saddle. Add whatever euphemism here. I really missed it. And it’s so good to be back.
Was in Vancouver this week; did go to the gym once in the 3 days, but the numbers were sad, sad, sad.
Going today, and again tomorrow early AM. I guess we’ll see if I have anything in the tank at all. 🙂
I waited to long to sign up for the meet in August. It’s full. I feel gutted (which is a pretty extreme reaction. But I guess a good sign, as had I felt relieved I’d question my motivation…)
I have asked Jerimiah for advice; if I can make a July event in terms of readiness. I am not worried about some big number; just want to be able to hit my best numbers or close to them for the day. Right now, I am not regularly doing anything near my 1RM, so that’ll take a bit.
And I need to lose more weight to get into the 63kg class, which I think is somewhere around my sweet-spot for day-to-day comfort in my own skin. Based on my current trajectory, I can be there by July(ish) IF IF IF IF I am a bit more disciplined when I travel (that’s those up-ticks.)
The hotel (CLICK FOR HOTEL) has a REAL gym! Super stoked. Had to wait for the squat rack, so was a bit fatigued, but I did get under the bar.
Not sure I will get there every day (it was very busy also), but I got there today, and today is all there is, so far. 🙂
