Lifting feeling slow and sad today. I think I burned myself out during my warm-up. Too much warm-up, not enough higher-weight lifts.

Push-ups KILLED me. Don't know why.

Well, if I overdo my warm-up exercises--like I did way too much snatch work on the 28th--then I'm burned out for the rest of the workout. But yesterday felt fine. I need a LOT more sleep, nine hours or more feels best, but during the day otherwise I'm feeling a-OK.
