Workout time: 3:40- 4:30
Notes in the log: work capacity dying off, cumulative effect of week, not just single workouts. Need to keep up work on it.
Overall, this cycle is good. I didn't do a couple of key things that I need to keep up, namely conditioning work (treadmill, cardio of some sort), and I didn't get any odd lifts in. I have to keep up the mobility work, too. I am pleased with the overall week, though. Next cycle, I'll get the treadmill/cardio work in, as well as some unconventional stuff, and make sure I do dynamic/mobility warmups for lower body, and keep on stretching. I need to do a better job with upper body stretching, as well.
A note on the resolutionist rush: I think I have a solution to the inevitable crowding of he gym that happens every January and lasts 4-6 weeks. I'm trying to change my sleeping/working schedule so I start my work day early (7AM), and get to the gym by 3:30 or so. That gets me out by 5:30 at the latest, and I miss the rush. It also gives me my evening back, which lets me spend more quality time at home, enjoying the finer things. We'll see how it goes tomorrow.
