Lost a day

I was interrupted while posting Wednesday's workout (work call that was worth it, big Xmas tip) and it appears I threw away the paper it was on. I have not run this week at all due to the dehydration, the race isn't until April so for now maintaining strength is my focus. I plan to resume treadmill training Saturday, it will be lsd training, 4.0 and 5.2 intervals.
Today I am going for 3x3x 125 squats, 3x5x 85 bench press and am adding power cleans back in so will see where I am with those, I expect to be at 65lbs. Also 3x10x bar overhead press active recovery.

Also, in a blow to healthy equalling sexy, I notice that after the 4 days of nausea that resulted in minimal eating and minimal training that my body looks better then it has in a long time. My waist is narrower and I have a more streamlined look altogether. I think that all the reading I've done about eating (actually, eating influenced by the reading makes more sense) to support strength in addition to inflammation caused by exercise blew me up. I'm not going to make myself eat anymore unless I really want to at the time, including post workout.

Friday afternoon session: warmup of 20 back extensions, squats 1x10x air, 1x8x bar, 1x5x 65, 1x5x 85, 1x5x 105, 1x5x 115 kind of a grind but ok, 3x3x 125 tough but doable, 1x2x 125, 1x1x 125, 1x3x 115.

Bench press 1x8x bar, 1x5x 65, 1x3x 75, 1x1x 85 UGH, 1x2x 85, 2x2x 85, 1x4x 85, 1x3x 85, 1x5x 75. Very tough bench press session.
I brought power cleans back in, 1x5x bar, 1x5x 55, 1x3x 60, 5x3x 65, nice cleans. Learning how to do a tight set-up was the most important thing to do these, now I need to not hit myself in the face with the bar Doh.
