Looking forward to tonight

This is new. I didn't make it to yoga because a disruptive cat kept me up all night and I couldn't drag myself out of bed by the time she gave up. Today I'll warm up with the one mile walk-run, walking intervals at 4.0 and running at 5.1. Squatting 5 rep sets across until work sets of 3x3x 120. Then dumbbell bench presses 3x6x 30, one handed 3x6x 30. Power clean reset 5x3x 65, Romanian deadlift 2x5x 95 and done. I had a bowl of pasta for lunch with the intention of all those carbs at the ready to fuel my workout and am also drinking water like crazy. Two hours to go!

The run did not go well, I ended up walking two minutes for the one minute running intervals, and it wasn't my imagination that today was more difficult then Tuesday. As i checked the heart-rate monitor, instead of getting back under 120 beats per minute in a minute like usual, it took three and even then was wavering between 128-129 beats per minute. My shirt was soaked with sweat too. I think this is hormonal as I've been craving chocolate and a bit weepy lately.

Lifts were better, squats were 1x8x air, 1x8x bar, 1x5x 65, 1x5x 85, 1x5x 105, 1x3x 115, 3x3x 120, but I wasn't sure I was getting my usual depth on the heavy sets as i was thinking about the 'up' on the way down. There wasn't anyone handy to ask either. Those were tough sets too. Before I go i get convinced that if I try like hell it will be easy and so far it does work sometimes. Not this time but I made the lifts. Then to do more with proper depth for sure I did 1x5x 105, and 1x5x 95.

Dumnnell presses went as planned with good attack on the weights. Power cleans 1x 5x bar, 1x3x 55, 5x3x 65 with one moment when a guy got a little too close and made me miss the lift in order not to brain him with the bar. I think my setup on the power cleans is getting better. Then I did 2x5x 95 Romanian deadlifts and I was wiped out. Tomorrow aiming for yoga in the morning and thats it!
