As a society, we have become so sick, weak, and broken, we accept the abnormal as normal.

Was planning to have today as 1RM-Deadlifts, but my QL on the right side is cramping a bit, so no need to stress it. Changed to Bench and W-PU instead, and here I cut it short cause my right shoulder is aiching, hmm. Well, as said, I am expecting to feel the effect of 5 heavy weeks so not really surprised that my body is telling me to back down a bit now. Will play it by ear, but pretty sure I will be able to get the maxlifts for Front Squats and Strict Presses in by the end of the week as planned and then next week is all about rehab and active resting.
For the metcon, this was once again Jobst wod, and once again when it comes to rowing in metcon, he kicked my butt pretty hard. He finished almost 90s ahead of me and after 3-4 rounds he was just pulling away by every rep. However, this really opened my eyes up, yet again, to how much I suck at having rowing in metcons. I am just unable to recover at all as soon as I step off the rower, today my quads was basicly cramping from the second round of Walking Lunges and I just tried to keep moving at any pace at all.
Really need to put a lot of this kind of work in my programming, but that is already in the pipeline. Boringly enough, it really is the weakest link that needs to be fixed and this is so much my goat…
Tomorrow is active rest day, making up for the missed hike to my cave last week and then a deep tissue sports massage should get me back into gear to give it my best to smash the Challenge, at least I hope so.
