Today was kinda interesting. I wasn’t there mentally, but again, just felt strong. 7 reps with 200 was most acceptable, and I wasn’t even dialed in mentally or even physically! The assistance work was just a breeze, and I even did 5x1xbw chins after each set of assistance benching. I’ll take today.
I did realize that with the GPP, I just have to change it up. “Aerobics” have always been boring to me. I hate running, I hate walking. It’s all boring boring boring. The GPP routine of the “tabata” stuff was fine, but on the machine just bored the dickens out of me. So I figure well, something is better than nothing else I’ll totally fall off the wagon. So if I want to change it up, fine. Today was just a steady but fair pace. Whatever it takes to keep me on the wagon, y’know?
Oh, and I finally bought a foam roller for the house. Now I can roll whenever I want to. It’s just too good to do. Even Wife and Kiddos found it pleasant and relaxing to use.
