The Tail End of Being Sick

Saturday was a planned rest day and I did a bunch of work around the house, including tearing out a floor. I woke up feeling “off” on Sunday with a headache and it quickly turned to an achy body with no energy. Felt like the flu. Needless to say I didn’t do any training. Went to bed at 8 and slept for 12 hours. Today has been better as the day progresses, but I took a sick day from work to rest.

Since I’m feeling better tonight, I decided to see if I could get in my back squats for the week. Warmed up with 5 reps on the empty bar and then 5 at 135#. My working sets today called for:

  • 6 @ 185
  • 6 @ 205
  • 6 @ 220
  • 6 @ 235
  • 6 @ 250

Was a bit rough in the last two sets, but I got through it. Hopefully I’m back close to 100% tomorrow.
