Sick Call

Posted in Rest and Recovery by Mike on August 10, 2007

I took yesterday off from work and I have this rule, if you don’t go to work (or school) you don’t get to train. So, I followed my rule. Honestly, I was itching all day to get a workout in. Being at home for the day, I kept walking past the 32K kettlebell, I swear it was taunting me. “Can you do 100 cleans with me?” It would call out. I couldn’t answer, but I will, hopefully this weekend.

I took the day off due to a summer cold that had shown up on Monday witha vengance. It hasn’t been too bad as far as colds go, obviously, I have done some training with it. Fighting infections though can wear a person out. So I mostly took a day to sleep in, take a nap, get some rest. That kind of stuff. I didn’t particularly over eat or anything so it shouldn’t hurt my results this week too much. However, this is two weeks in a row with only two rowing sessions. Next week I’ll try to get back to three

I found myself thinking a fair bit about my diet stuff. I was thinking about how much I get away with, as far as indiscretions, and still lose weight. I was thinking about what that means in terms of: how much I could lose with some real hard discipline and what that signifies that my final weight should be. I still don’t know the answer to that and assume I only will when I see how my body reacts as I lose. I’ve lost a good solid 20 lbs so far. Another 20 seemse very reasonable. Do I have another 20 in me after that?
