Another bad workout – I need a break from training.

Yesterday’s leg workout was terrible. I was squatting heavy and, just like Friday’s heavy back workout, the weights that I normally find challenging were absolutely crushing me. Everyone has bad workouts from time to time, but this makes two bad workouts in a row for me, and that’s pretty unusual. I just checked my records, and it’s been more than two months since my last full week off from training. After that break back in early July I’ve skipped a couple of workouts, but that was only when I was doing grueling physical labor, such as moving all that rock for the pond. I think the weight training workouts I’ve been doing combined with the countless hours I’ve spent doing demanding physical labor have left me completely exhausted.

Lisa has a vacation coming up in early October, and I think I’m going to take a vacation then, too. I’ll take a week off from training while I’m on vacation. In the meantime I’m going to spend the next couple of weeks doing less intense, less heavy training. I’m not going to go heavy on any exercises, and will allow myself a bit more rest than I usually do when I’m using moderate weights.

Today is a cardio day, and I’m going to get a bike ride in before work. My last bike ride was a 30-minute HIIT blast, but today I’m not as pressed for time so I’m going to go for a longer LISS-style road bike ride.
