Today wasn’t too hot…

During yesterday’s session I felt some discomfort in my right biceps and elbow, but mostly the biceps itself. It was minor, didn’t think much of it. But today, it’s all about pulling, and so my biceps felt worse. Many times it felt like I was just weak… that my right arm was just weak and couldn’t pull. It could, but it was the sensation and yes sometimes I just had to stop.

I reckon it’s just irritation/inflamation somewhere. I’ll have a diet of Advil and rest this weekend and see how it goes. I reckon part of the problem is the diet and sleep — the lack of enough nourishing food, and the lack of enough recouperating sleep. Diet… well, we just keep forging ahead and progress is good, but it’s taking a toll; while I want to keep forging ahead to 220, I think once I get to 225 (hopefully Sunday) I may cry “uncle” and go maintenance for a bit. And sleep’s been lacking due to the Tesla concert earlier this week, but I should get some good sleep this weekend.

Anyways, apart from that, the session was what it was. Some things were down, couldn’t get all the reps at times, but that’s the way pain goes sometimes.
