I made the wrong bet. as usual. look at the post-fight press conference here.
did not sleep much at all. ate too little yesterday. could have made better decisions for myself. paid for it in the gym this morning as my body ached when I woke up. experienced muscle soreness, which I have not felt for quite some time.
the previous 3+ week, I could bang out 5 solid reps at 70 kgs. how would I fare today?
military press, 3 / 3 / 3+. after warmup:
- 3x 57.5 kg
- 3x 65 kg
- 3x 71 kg (3+)
- 3x 71 kg (annoyed)
- 2x 71 kg (even more annoyed)
so I bombed out on my training set. however, I would like to put a spin on this: if memory serves, I have not had a bad week of training since sometime during the spring. I have constantly improved according to plan for the better part of the year. with those things in mind, I can accept todays less than stellar performance for what it is: an opportunity to improve myself.
