Feeling better.

Been getting better sleep each night since the weekend, plus lunchtime naps. Amazing what they can do. Still digging out of the hole, but every day a little better.

And so deadlifting went well. I am surprised how much I’m enjoying the pyramiding here. I usually don’t like deadlifts for reps, but maybe because that often is something like 5×10 across so it’s just a bunch of work. But here it’s some weight and going to failure, to push myself to see how far I can go, so maybe that’s why I’m enjoying it.

It’s only a couple more sets, but a nice amount of work. I actually look forward to going back to rep PR’s on the top set and then how that will couple with the pyramiding.

But since it’s a good amount of work, I’m dropping the RDLs while I do it. In part because it’s sufficient work as it is, and also back to the recovery hole as deadlifts are mighty taxing on the whole body, so why continue to dig a deeper hole to recover out of.
