Horrible workout yesterday; Stress.

Yesterday’s workout… well, it just plain sucked. I think that’s about the best word for it. It was easily my worst workout of this year’s bulk, and probably in the top 10 of my all-time worst workouts. I just couldn’t seem to shake off the cobwebs. My whole body felt tired and sore, and no matter how hard I tried I couldn’t seem to get fired up. My meals have been spot-on, I had Wednesday off from training and I’ve been sleeping like a baby at night, so I was a little puzzled as to what was wrong. I put some additional thought into it last night, and about the only thing I could come up with is that I’ve been training very hard, and this week’s workouts have been especially brutal. Maybe my body just needed a little more rest (or maybe I was just being a wuss).

Another possible contributing factor is that I’ve been under a lot of stress lately. With just one week to go until the new owners close on our existing house, there has been a little uncertainty caused by something that the home inspection turned up: the inspector hired by the buyers says “roof hail damage!”, but an independent roofing engineering firm that we had inspect the roof says “superficial/cosmetic hail damage that in no way compromises the integrity of the roof.” Despite the fact that the engineer is infinitely more qualified to make this judgment, if the buyers want to they can simply walk away from the deal. That’s very scary because we are out of time, and the pre-owned housing market is absolutely horrible right now. If the buyers bail out, we’re probably going to lose our new home. No matter what happens, I’ll never say that this experience has been boring! 🙂

I feel good this morning, and I’m going to try to put all that crap out of my mind when I walk into the gym later today. It’s really hard to do that, though; this is major juncture in my life and everything is riding on the sale of our existing house. Hopefully the closing will happen as scheduled next Friday and then I can finally relax!
