This was 2 weeks ago. It was a good work out week. I am not sure why I didn't publish it on Friday when I finished it. You can skip to the bottom for week 7's results. Madcow is the name of a progress/intermediate work out of squatting three times a week, benching, and rowing 3 times a week, deadlifting once a week.
140 x 3, 4 & 5 not so good
130 this is a pr
72.5 a good strong lift
140 this was with good form and strong
So I ended this week strong finishing my squas and rows on Friday.
Sunday-I did a pilates class. I felt I had a good core work out.
Week 7 madcow
on Monday I was doubled over in pain. It is the first time in all these years I "called out sick."
If I had a doctor, I might have gone. I was almost past the point of usinfg my own tools and wisdom, but I really felt as much pain as it was it was going to pass. (it did pass, I just feel drained now).
Monday night, No work out. I could barely eat.
no yoga on Tuesday
no Wednesday work out.
This is not like me
Friday I went to gym to stretch and walk on treadmill.
I felt like a hundred years old.
I feel better now, but you know how it takes time for your energy to really return.
I've been taking good nutritional care of myself. Early in the week I was probably dehydrated because I lost my appetite, but I had plenty of (local)soups, smoothies, juice, probiotic drinks, local eggs once I got my appetite going.
I wonder what kind of work out I'll have this week with nothing done in a week.
Wheel chair yoga and week one strong lifts (which is not so easy)! Somehow I hope I can pick the pace back up giving myself a few weeks.
