Cold is kicking my butt, it’s nothing serious but glands and sinuses are swollen, so breathing and swallowing aren’t fun and my joints are aching a little.
Was so wanting to call this session off, but can’t let a little discomfort get in the way!

Went into this session not sure what I had in me, came out knowing I can perform even when the circumstances aren’t in my favour, that’s a win. Also not had 200kg in my hands in a long while, might be HHTBDL but I’ll take it. Was aiming for things that were easier on joints/less technical because of where my body/head is today, was going to do block pulls but couldn’t find the blocks, so pulled the very underused TB out, glad I did perfect for the occasion.
Couldn’t remember where the deload sat in DH and rather than go through the YouTube video I thought I’d buy the ebook (there wasn’t one last time I ran this afaik), so glad I did, this quote was so necessary today, worth the $25 for this alone:
Most people will never do great things because most great things don’t feel that great when getting them done.
Body weight 206 this AM, I’m eating to recover, weight gain is a happy side effect. Performance is my KPI right now.
