Week 4 Begins

Allergies were really hitting me last night. I did get up the energy to mow the lawn several hours after the workout, but I was exhausted. In bed by 10 two nights in a row. We got a little rain overnight so hopefully that gets a lot of the pollen out of the air and cools off my sinuses.

HRV is down more, to 85 this morning. With the combination of Kelly and not feeling great, I’m surprised it didn’t drop even lower. I have a weird soreness in my upper abs this morning, which had cramped up on me in the last round yesterday. Oh yeah, evil wheels are probably to blame for that.

Out in the garage at about 8 and warmed up with 5:00 Air Dyne (2.29 km).

Put in the reps. Didn’t push it today, but will start pushing some weight the rest of the week.

In the afternoon I did yoga, following the YRG Double Black Diamond video. Diamond Dallas isn’t the greatest voice for yoga and he rushes through too many of the moves if you ask me, but it’s a nice alternative to the P90X YogaX. It was my first time doing this video from the series and it was about 65 minutes.
