What a long day yesterday; Week off from training?

Yesterday was a very long, difficult day spent working in the yard. It’s amazing how quickly weeds can become established, even in the Winter. By the end of the day we had 4 huge bundles of cut branches and thirteen 45-gallon trash bags filled with weeds, trimmings and deadfall. Next weekend we’ll be doing all the mulching and planting some new stuff.

I ate all my meals yesterday and drank around 2 gallons of water, but I’m still down to 210.4 pounds this morning – almost a full pound less than yesterday morning’s weight! Not only did I sweat a lot, I burned a whole lot of calories. Next weekend will be even more labor-intensive.

My shoulder is bothering me a little this morning, but I’m used to that happening after a long day of working in the yard. I don’t think it’s anything to worry about. Still, I am feeling very tired and a little burnt out right now. It’s really no surprise: I checked my records last night and it’s been around eight months since I took a week off from training! That’s a long time to go without a break, especially considering the intensity of my workouts. Normally I like to take a week off from training every 3 months, so I’m way overdue. I sent Mastover a PM last night and asked what he thought about me taking a week off from lifting this week. If I get his approval, I plan to do just that.

I’d better go get some food in me – I’m starving! Have a great Monday. 🙂
