2015-01-13 training log

Today was… ok.

Being down on food, sleep, and other things, while I chugged through today, it was a tougher day. I didn’t hit my reps on the stiff-legs, the squats were moving but moving slow. I just felt gassed, mostly…. Well, it is what it is. Nothing else to say.

I’ll get it back.

In other news… I’ve started to think again about competition. In many ways, it depends upon the state of things (e.g. The Defattening Project) and then how things go from there. But what I came back to, and I’ve thought about this before, is Hyde Park Gym (one of the bigger gyms in town, and if they were convenient to me I’d probably train there — there or Big Tex Gym, but they are completely on the other side of town from me), and how HPG does a push-pull event every summer. I don’t think you have to be a gym member to participate, and the barrier of entry is low, e.g. you don’t have to buy and wear special equipment, etc.. Sure, it’s not affiliated with any sort of Federation or anything, but it’s still judged, it’s still a competition. So who cares about the details, and yeah it’s not a full-meet, but whatever. If it could be the way to cut my teeth, I’m game to give it a shot. TBD.
