I was supposed to squat Friday but I was feeling a little burned out and we had some friends in town so my wife and I went out to eat with them. Since I haven’t had several weeks of hard training back to back for awhile and since I sucked it up benching Thursday I used Friday-Sunday as a mini-deload. Sunday I headed out and ran some hills again. They were only about 70-80% but I ran them back to back with the only rest being the walk back down the hill. I was contemplating trying to make up my deadlifts from Friday but I’m going to pass on it and just pick up where I need to be. This week will be 3 x 5 with just the requisite reps for my 3 main lifts. I’ll add a little volume with my accessory lifts.
I’m slowly ramping up the volume of the hills I’m running. I ran 10 the first day, 11 yesterday, and next time I’ll hit 12 of those bad boys. When I get up to around 20 I’ll drop back down to 10 hills with 3-4 being a full out sprint. I miss having the conditioning I had when I was playing sports in high school so I’ve got to work on my badassery a little bit at a time. Now if I could only grow a decent beard….
