Catching up!

Wow, I had no idea that it’s been since last Tuesday that I posted on my blog! Maybe that’s what jetlag/sleep deprivation does to you???

My workouts last week were quite a struggle. I felt exhausted all week, but somehow got myself up for some decent workouts. Wednesday I worked chest. My shoulders were really tight and kinda sore so I threw in super-sets of high pulley rows after each set of bench press. That seems to make my shoulders feel better. I was disappointed that I didn’t increase my number of reps with my bodyweight on bench press, but I suppose the lack of sleep was a factor. I took Thursday off of training to work on finding a venue for the ’09 Texas Shredder Classic. On Friday I had a long workout, doing deadlifts, back, shoulders and arms.

On Saturday I think it all caught up with me. I woke up completely exhausted!!! My stomach hurt, I was nauseated and generally just couldn’t function. I literally spent the entire day in bed with a bucket next to me. I pretty much slept the whole day on Saturday. I got up to watch the Longhorn football game and then went back to bed.

I was feeling much better today, although my stomach still doesn’t feel quite right. And, after a grueling leg workout I felt like puking. By the time I got done with squats I was on the verge of hurling or passing out after each set. But, I made it through and kept everything down. My legs are totally trashed right now, though!
