Also of note: sleeping 9 hours/day. Slightly sore (legs and back).

Planning on going everyday still? I would figure first few days after vacation are going to be pretty sore. Doesn't make slow bar speed and sore legs any more fun though.

6 days/week, yep. Will keep up with this 'til the beginning of August, then take five weeks of LG fat loss, then back to the daily lifting.

My hope is that the bar speed will increase as I adapt.

More observations: slept 10 hours last night, feel like I've been in a fight...

Felt way better by end of day Monday. Went climbing with my daughter at the local climbing gym - good memories for when I used to climb (real rock faces) back when I was her age.

Tuesday:
sn: up to 125#, nothing at 130#
j: up to 150#, no good at 155#
bs: up to 225# (!), failed above that.

So WTF?

Metrics:
bw: 182.8#, everything else pretty static.

Wed.

sn: up to 135#. That's probably a PR for under 85kg bw -- hard to assess because my strength really started to drop off under 85Kg but I wasn't able to snatch due to my shoulder.
j: up to 155#
fs: up to 205#, failed at 215#. I need to learn that work to max means "work to a smooth and fast max with good form, not a grinder"

Forgot to weigh in before eating today, but figure 183#

Averages:
sn: 125#, j: 150#, bw: 183#, lean mass: 161.5#

Thurs:
sn: fell apart. Missed 125# and 130# despite getting the bar well high enough. No coordination.
c&j: up to 155#
bs: forget about it.

Metrics:
bw: 182# despite ice cream and such nightly. Everything else the same
averages: 183#, 161.3#, 123#, 152#
