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?
