Today I entered the workout feeling a bit sad and lonely, as I just broke things off with a guy. It wasn't a good match over all, and I feel more productive not being involved, but there was still an element of "I wish someone was here" in an abstract sense. That probably doesn't make sense.
I did have a lifting partner, and I think that helped. She's a friend that I've been teaching some of the basics of lifting. Mostly we just laugh at sex jokes when we can breath. That helped a lot. About halfway through the workout, I was still feeling depressed, but by the end I felt(feel) fantastic.
Tonight I did:
snatch-grip squats (I am mind-blanking on the name for this)
Bent-over BB row
115x5 The last time I did this exercise I tweaked an old injury, so I felt pretty risky trying it again. My back has been good for the last 6 months (since I started doing the yoga program and meditating). It felt good during the exercise, and 115 was flying up just fine, but I was too nervous to increase.
I cooled down with the short yoga program, which is basically a lot of inversions and stretching. My back feels great right now.
