Are you feeling "slug"gish?

Maybe it's the rain, maybe it's me... but whatever it is... these front squats SUCKED yesterday. Which is odd because normally I don't do too badly with squats. I love, love, LOVE me some OHS and last week nailed a 150 X 5. So why, when we were doing X 3 could I not get out of the suck lane? I felt like a total giant slug. There is one thing that I have noticed though, and that is that I do not do strength lifts as well in the evenings. I have more time at night, which I like, but I think going through the school day zaps me, so trying to do it at night is harder for me, but I don't want to blame that.

CF says that I should be able to produce on demand regardless of time of day, diet, etc. So why could I just not produce yesterday? I don't know. I really don't, but I just wasn't feeling it. I think part of it may have been that I had my eyes on a pretty high goal and jumped too fast, and then once I failed, just didn't feel like lifting anymore. It was just as much mental as it actually was physical I think, but then again, my brain has made mistakes before, so who's to say that I really know anything?

I had to settle for my first actual "no kidding, I suck" strength day in awhile. I couldn't even get 155X3. I didn't like the feeling. I especially didn't like it cause I feel like I just jinxed my spiffy new shoes. I don't want to lift badly everytime I wear them now. Poor shoes. They may just get chucked in the closet. (really and fo' cereal, no pun was intended on that one) :( That's a shame cause they're really cute. Boo... :(

On the upside, to save my spirits after the crappy lifting day, I went to Borders and used my 30% off coupon to purchase NCIS Season 2. I will be the first to admit that I love Burn Notice, and I heart, heart, HEART me some Michael Westen...



but... BUT Jethro Gibbs is after my heart. I am now addicted to the show NCIS. I seriously may need an intervention soon. If you were worried after my Michael Westen duct tape comments before, you may need to be even more concerned now. ;) I may need to have a serious love affair with Mr. Gibbs. Oh Jethro... semper fi. Semper fi. He is a dee-licious older man. Think very Harrison Fordesque. :) Oh... I think I'm in love... at least I'm not thinking about my craptastic front squats... hmmm... I could see my last name being Gibbs. Katie Gibbs... what do you think?

If your name ain't on the board I guess you didn't DO any Front Squats now did you!?!

Katie said...

Just because my name isn't on the board doesn't mean I didn't do any stinking front squats... they just really stunk and I didn't want to put them up there... :P

Sean said...

Fo Rizzle?

Aren't you "Quizzle of the Frizzle Squizzles?"

Fo Shizzle!

Katie said...

The quizzle of the frizzle squizzles was off her game yesterday... so sad really... truly tragic...

I second you on the Gibbs thing. Mmmmm. Although, you can have Gibbs, and I'll take Dinozo. That leaves McGeek up for grabs. Anyone, anyone?

Speaking of Gibbs, looks like Jerry just Gibbsed you there. "Yes Boss! Front squats, right away Boss!"

Katie said...

Tami, I totally heart Abby and McGee together... they are too cute. :)

I'd better be careful... I'm going to start walking around calling people "proby"... ;)

Hmmm... you know Tami, Jerry does drink a lot of coffee... and he is a former marine... maybe I should take him coffee when I go to the box this afternoon, just in case? ;)

Sean said...

This post got weird real quick!

I'm actually a little uncomfortable now reading all this estrogen-fueled, fangirl fanatacism. I think I'm gonna go eat some bacon, listen to Metallica, and scratch my butt for NO apparent reason.

Yep, that'll right the world!

Katie said...

Don't be jealous of Gibbs, Sean...

Katie said...

On a completely separate side note... on NCIS and Burn Notice they spend a rather large chunk of time shooting guns, blowing things up, and driving really fast... I fail to see how me being in love with either of these shows is a bad thing...

Keep the shoes. It can't be the shoes!! Give the shoes a 2nd chance!

I don't know which is less enticing now - watching Sean scratch his butt or watching NCIS. Guess I'll watch Harmon since I think I did pay to go to see him in Summer School. Butt (pun intended), if Sean is listening to old Metallica, tough call.

Katie said...

Oh Sean, say it ain't so... you're not siding with Sean on this... Gibbs is well... he's Gibbs... :)

Sean said...

It can only be OLD Metallica - anything less is just uncivilized!

How about this: OLD Metallica, Bacon, Butt Scratching, and, (wait for it...!) RIBS!?!Does it get any better? I submit it cannot!

Katie said...

How about old Metallica, butt scratching, beer, and steak wrapped in bacon and topped with butter?

Sean said...

I can get down with Bacon Wrapped-Steak & Almond Butter, however... Poppa Soni doesn't get down with Mr. Bud Weiser so that's all you! :D

Katie said...

ok fine... how about a red wine with a nice bouquet? :)

I'm starting to become convinced that you do no work because of my blog... ;)

Sean said...

Oh trust me, I work!

I'm saving the world as I'm making snooty & snyde remarks on this here "blog." Which goes to say, aren't you trading just as many comments with me? Shouldn't you be teaching those poor school children?

And no, no alcohol for yours truly! :)

Katie said...

I'm teaching them how to multi-task! :P LOL. Just kidding... they were in library.... :P

sean_e_connelly said...

Boy, watching Sean scratch his butt with Old Metallica blasting in the background, with some wings and a beer would place me back with Team Testosterone's camp. Sorry Katie.

Katie said...

God, you guys are so fired...
