Friday - rest day

Saturday - was going to do "Diane" but woke up with a shocking chest/throat cold and had to run a 4 hour KB/OLY workshop.

Sunday - still feeling crap (cough, sore throat etc) but hit the gym anyway

Power cleans up to a double at 95kg

"Diane" modified with push press 50kg instead of HSPU 13:15

5 minute break

"Elizabeth" power cleans and regular dips

17:00

couldn't catch my breath at all through either workout and i felt like dying afterward.

But pleased with myself for not missing the workouts!

Friday

Recovery session Kayaking - boy did my shoulders feel it from "Lynne"

Long weekend off - still recovering from throat infection that has given me some weird asthma.

Tuesday - mucking around in the morning

Bench press 80kgx5 85x3 90x3 95x2 100kgx1
Pullups - 13. 10, 10, 8

row 4 x 500m with 2 min rests
1:42.8
1:45
1:46.6
1:46.8

These felt remarkably easy considering i've had two weeks off with a cough etc. I think the asthma meds made a big difference and i felt like i could have gone several seconds faster but didn't want to risk irritating my throat/chest

Tuesday PM

"Cindy"

Embarrassing score from last time +4 rounds = slightly less embarrasing score

Apart from my usual suckfulness at pushups the workout felt fairly easy and i was flying through the pullups and squats.

Thinking perhaps i need to get tested for asthma cause on the meds i'm finding my breathing a LOT easier.
