Saw a Facebook post this morning from someone asking whether Daylight Savings Time was affecting others -- making them tired and out of sorts and such.
So that's what is going on with me the past two days ...
Unusually tired and sore from my pole vault workout on Sunday, and just not with it physically or mentally today at the gym. I was starting to get a little concerned, but then I saw that post and it dawned on me -- maybe that's it. A really good vaulting practice, and a decent workout today, but, man, just kind of in a fog.
It's only an hour's difference in the time, but maybe that produces some sort of great cosmic shift in biorhythms or something.
I don't know.
Anyway, I did make it to the gym today. Started out with some incline bench press, alternating sets with bench step-ups holding a pair of dumbbells. Got up to my normal last set of 145 pounds on the incline bench, but only one rep, and it was a struggle.
I followed with some seated dumbbell shoulder presses, lat pull-downs, and single-leg machine presses, which I'd never tried before. After about 45 minutes total, I was done.
My friend, Bubba, always says to work out with whatever body shows up that day, and don't worry about it. He quotes Bo Jackson or somebody saying, "Some days, 100 pounds feels like 50, and some days 50 pounds feels like 100."
Today, 50 pounds definitely felt like a hundred.
But I showed up. That's what counts, and that is often the hardest part of the workout.
Just showing up.
What did you do today?
