Your baseline is not your best day.

Well, I had a great day last week. I had a good day the week before that. Today: would have been a GREAT day (for me) as recently as 3 weeks ago…very encouraging. But I just didn’t feel right at the start and it was a chore..and well:

10 x 134

10 x 184 (oh no…shouldn’t be this hard)

3 x 224 (ok..)

3 x 260, 3 x 260, 3 x 260 (1 and 3 are shown)

3 x 265, 3 x 265 (4 is shown); this exhausted me.

1 x 285 (quit)

1 x 301 (quit..probably a good thing)

1 x 285 (done)

I found that my “off the ground” speed was actually ok; I struggled a bit higher up..this was just the opposite from last month (5 weeks ago) where I struggled with the off the ground part. I am wondering if I should “go high” every 2-3 weeks or so…or maybe just write this off to a “regression to the mean” effect. This WAS the best I have ever done in my low handle sets..but these just were difficult and taxing.

After this I had a good but not great walk. Some ache toward the end; for the week I had 4 training walks and 2 social ones, all short.
