Hey, Cal and Spider and lula!
So, yeah. This log begins several weeks after my last log ended. The reason: I've been quite sick with bronchitis. Sick as in lay-on-the-couch-and-watch-Food TV sick. Too sick to train with any intensity, too sick to run at all. Four weeks of abject misery, the lowlight of which was passing out after using my inhaler (incorrectly, I surmised....less holding your breath por favor). I entertained myself by buying stuff on-line and re-learning how to polish my fingernails. Apparently I'm easily entertained.
I didn't want to start a log with weeks of downer posts, so I spared you all. Thank me later.
Mostly I did go to the gym on my normal days, but just did light, easy trainings. It kept me from killing myself or others. I kept up with my upper body lifts on the 5/3/1 "not doing jack-shit" plan, so that's something.
My endurance is still crap, though. I ran a mile on Saturday, painfully slowly, and that was all I could do. My BBB set on Sunday's military presses was cut short after three sets because I was too beat to do the last two. The next few weeks will be a slow return to normal, I hope. That's OK: I'm practicing gratitude for what I can do instead of railing against what I can't.
