I'm super asocial and yet, the last few days have been a tightly packed hell of unrelated social activities, out-of-town visitors, and restaurant meals with friends. I'd like to say that it's over, but this afternoon, more office cake will be served. And then I'm going on the twisted-parent Messiah watermelon and lettuce diet. (Or maybe I'll just exercise some restraint.)

T 4/22/14
Banded squat (thicker than last week). (no bands) 8x 55, 55; (bands) 6x 55, 105; 2x 125; 1x 145; 1x 170
Camber bar squat. 4x 150 (bar slipped, dumped, crap). 3x 170; 2x 180; 1x 190
60 min elliptical

I feel like a dumbass for dumping the camber bar. Neither I nor my coach was expecting me to fail (first set; weight shouldn't have been hard for me). So he was standing to the side to check depth when the bar started to slip. The bar was too low on my back, and I just couldn't stop the slipping or recover the bar. I also couldn't think fast enough about the best way out, so I went down and dumped the weight as close to the ground as I could manage. He saw the slipping and was behind me by the time I dumped; I'm not sure whether it fell back into him or whether he had time to stop the bar. He and I were talking last week about a dumb lifter who loads too heavy, can't get control, and just lets the bar fall on his spotters ALL the time, almost every time he squats.

Of course, I apologized and my coach was gracious (he'd have told me--in that coach's way--if he thought I did something stupid, but he shrugged it off). And it was super light weight compared to what he's used to spotting. But still. He told me about two spectacular bench failures in his youth, then made me immediately do more sets, which I did with trepidation, and with the bar about as high as I could manage without shoving it THROUGH the back of my neck. Ugh. Just not gonna let that happen again is all, I guess.

Got a tetanus/diphtheria booster on Friday. Shoulders were already sore from Thursday--even worse after shot. And really tired and unmotivated, which I hope is an effect of the immunization.

Better than I thought it would be, given how lethargic the weekend was. It's almost like squatting isn't miserable any more. Not fun. But not miserable, either. Maybe in another 2 years, I'll grow to like it.

Another head cold, so poor sleep and mouth breathing and decongestant-fueled heartbeat. Still, glad I talked myself into going to the gym--it wasn't like I was going back to sleep.

Sa 5/17/14 - M 5/19/14 coughed up a lung; no sleep; likely toxic stew of OTC cold meds and homeopathic cries for help.

T 5/20/14
Squat. 8x 55, 55, 105; 6x 145; 3x 165; 2x 185; 1x 200, 210 (fail, stuck)

45 min elliptical

W 5/21/14 coughed up other lung

R 5/22/14
am: 35 min ellip (felt good to sweat; cleared my head a bit)
pm:
BP. 12x 45, 45; 8x 95; 6x 135; 3x 145; 2x 155; 1x 160
Board press. 6x 95; 3x 135; 2x 155 (fail miserably); 6x 135

My shoulders are tweaky on all of the dumbbells, and they were sore before I left the gym. The smoker's cough is super neat.
