Ahhh THAT's where my muscles are!! I have found them again this week - I knew they were still there somewhere! We had a public holiday yesterday, and I did the sensible thing and DIDNT take a public holiday from training and nutrition. I did have a good sleep in though... niiiiiice! Slept in til about 8, then got to the gym for opening time of 9am. Did a fantastic leg session - I had my heart rate up to 170bpm during smith machine lunges, and had the wonderful sensation of trying to hold back from puking between sets. After my second set I almost blacked out I think, well everything went a little dark for a second or two, and I felt dizzy. Prolly went a bit too hard do you think????? :-)~
So after my nausea subsided I finished up legs and followed it up with 25 jelly-leg minutes on the cross trainer, and 20 mins incline walking, just to get the blood moving in my legs again.
I slept like shite last night for some reason, I think it was the fact that I kept hearing the rain on the roof... such a strange sound after so long! Plus I could really feel the leg DOMS developing every time I rolled over... ouch. I hit the snooze button I dont know how many times this morning, managed to drag my sorry butt out of bed - and made it to gym only 10 minutes late. Did a pretty good chest/tricep workout too, considering I'm operating on 4 hours sleep! I cant believe how quickly my strength has disappeared - I dropped everything back a couple of kilos, and really struggled to make the reps. Still, I'm loving being able to feel it again!
I ended up having my ribs on Saturday night, and unfortunately they were a bit of a let down. Actually it was the restaraunt service that let it down - it was like there was a bunch of 16 year olds running the restaraunt... I kid you not. They ran out of clean glasses, I saw the "chefs" mucking about and downing shots of sherbert in the kitchen, and one of our friends saw one of them pretending to blow snot on somebody's food.... eeeewwwww... think I might think twice before eating there again.
Anyway, had another eye check up today in the city and its looking good - my vision has even improved a teeny bit since last time! We're all set and on track for my left eye next Monday!
Til next time - train hard and be happy :-)
