Starting this more for myself than anyone else. I thought it would be a good way to track my progress because I can’t seem to keep one physical journal up to date.
I’m just over a month into Stronglifts, which I started after coming out of rehab. I also cycle a lot since I don’t drive, so I’m going to track mileage in here as well. It might show me why I’m always knackered/how much more I can eat. I weigh just over 70kg now, but, to put that in perspective, before rehab and at my worst I was below 60kg, which at 5’10 is pretty dangerous.
5x5x67.5 The first rep of each set always seems the hardest, but overall these still don’t seem too bad.
5x5x32.5 Starting to struggle on the last two sets already, must remember to engage my core better.
1x5x70 As with squats, still pretty easy, working on form.
I also cycled roughly 20 miles to the gym in the morning, then to a creative writing group, and back out to a recovery meeting in the evening, which wasn’t even on. Great fun in 2 degree cold.
