ewwwww

Ugh today was not so great. I haven't been sleeping well the past few nights since my awesome adventure Saturday night, plus all the traveling. But here are the past few days:

SUNDAY
Snatch -- hang+knee
35/1+1

I had a HORRIBLE mental breakdown on these; for like 20 minutes I could NOT for the life of me get past 60. I just couldn't get my body to do it. I'd get set and I just wouldn't go.

CL pulls
(75/3)x3

FS
60/3
70/3
80/1
75/3
Not great, but not terrible.

Monday I was back in Walla Walla and just did some light bodybuilding stuff. I also taught the volleyball team how to clean and jerk, so just did lots of reps with the bar.

TUESDAY
Today was not so hot.

Snatch

Horrible. Snatches used to feel so good for me, but now they just feel awkward. Hopefully I'll get back in the groove.

Pulls

Ugh. Not too great. I was absolutely EXHAUSTED. I felt like I could keel over right there from exhaustion. I think just lack of sleep and stress etc really didn't help. I just hope I can get back in the groove with this meet coming up soon.

FOOD TODAY
Breakfast: 1 c cottage cheese, 1 TBS almond butter, 1 apple, bowl of cantaloupe/pineapple (4 blocks)
Lunch: tofu/cilantro salad with sun dried tomatoes and a lemon-rosemary dressing; broccoli, cabbage salad, 1 egg (3-4 blocks)
Snack: 1 apple, salmon, almond butter (2 blocks)
dinner: chicken, broccoli, cabbage salad, cantaloupe (3-4 blocks, probably more like 3)

So tomorrow I'm taking off, then I work out on Thursday, off on Friday, then Saturday I'm back to a normal schedule. Next week I'll be on my special program. Excitement.

I understand you are busy but hows the recovery? You sound like you either need to eat or sleep more/better, or both. Hows your fish oil consumption? Minerals?

Ugh yeah my schedule has just been screwed up the past few days. I've actually been bad at taking my vitamins and fish oil, I definitely have to get back on that.

I got a great night's sleep last night, so hopefully that will help. I have today off so hopefully tomorrow will be good!
