Are you still on a lifting hiatus?
I guess you had to have something keeping you feeling human… You got into your grad school of choice, you are moving to sunny California, and you have a boyfriend that can cook. Seriously, if you didn’t show some sign of weakness people may start hating you!
Hahaha. Yes, smart ass I’m still on a lifting hiatus. I’ve even been too lazy to go and do my leg routine Bartl put together for me. I’m blaming it on him though. A 3 hour time difference freaking sucks balls. He has all sorts of energy at 8,9pm and it’s past my bedtime here so I can wake up for work. Yes, I could tell him I don’t want to talk to him, but to be honest, I do.
All I’ve been doing is rolling twice a day (legs in am, full body pm), mobility in the evening after rolling and then stretching before bed.
I’m leaving tomorrow evening to visit him. We’re driving from Santa Barbara to San Francisco on Friday and spending the night with some friends of his then heading to Napa to drink copiouos amounts of wine on Sat/Sun then heading back down to Santa Barbara. It’s his birthday on Monday (he’s old heehee) so I’m not flying out til Tuesday. I can’t wait!
I went and saw mine and Ouro’s chiro/ART guy today. I have an AC joint issue which has resulted in me ‘losing’ the strength of most of my pec. Hence why benching has been feeling heavy. I also need to start supplementing with tyrocine because my adrenals are pissed off at me with all the stress I’ve had (what with getting into my choice of grad school, moving to sunny California and having a boyfriend that cooks) and my sartorious doesn’t like that. Basically it’s not weak, but the insertions are super inflammed (apparently due in part because of stress, je ne sais pas) and are even sore to the touch. It’s the inflammation that’s causing my hip discomfort. (PS. This is me trying to remember and translate he said to me at 8am when I was still half asleep… he dumbed it down a bit, but not enough for the state I was in).[/quote]
I’m sure that you will be all healed after spending a few days basking in the healing powers of wine country. I will be cursing your name as I force myself to walk through the shitty weather to the gym! And then I will curse your name some more when I do my HIIT training (just because you need to curse something while doing HIIT).
Have a good trip!
P.S. I finally got some Surge workout fuel. You were right, it definitely gives you something extra during workouts.
