1 - Weekly updates seem to fit better into my schedule.
2 - First week of 5s, but came down with an awful head cold, so some things kinda went to hell. Started feeling off Tuesday night, it really hit home Wednesday, by Thursday the gym was the only thing I was dragging myself out of the house for. Didn't start to feel better until Saturday, pretty solid by today (Sunday).
3 - Even so, set a fairly good baseline for the next two weeks to improve on. All of my 5RMs were a little over my 10RMs from the first weeks, which was a legitimate relief given how crappy I felt.
4 - Power jerks feel slow. Not sure why, possibly just that the hip depth is harder to hit in this position than a split.
5 - Shoulder continuing to improve steadily.
6 - Ankle/calf pains came back with a vengeance this week. Getting through the sets across on Wednesdays BS was an act of sheer will, and I couldn't get through the back off sets at all. Also think that I'm a little slower on the clean at the moment because of pain in the bottom receiving position.
7 - All in all, very happy with training this week, all things considered. Snatches just keep feeling better and better. Had some trouble at 90kg, but every single miss was close enough to warrant another attempt. Need to get more comfortable with cleans, fairly certain jerks will follow naturally.
