Something good happened this week: I finally went on a decent run. I ran 5K in a Kenyan time of 35:40. Not my fastest time ever, but since I’ve done almost no running in the past 6 months, I consider running a continuous 5K a huge first step.
But a lot of not so good things happened this week. I’m feeling sick, tired and overworked this week and I’m trying to run on a caloric deficit. Let’s add my first squat failure on Texas Method to this giant pile of suck.
Honestly, I’m feeling so beat right now that I’m not sure whether I’m pissed or just sad that I missed this, since 255×5 felt so easy last week. I’m leaning towards switching to triples next week so that this isn’t technically a failure. Then I’ll ride out my triple progression as long as I can before taking a reset.
Or I’ll just take up marathon training and wallow in self-pity over my failure to squat. Just kidding. Ain’t gonna happen.
