    Light Cardio

    Guess who got sick? This guy. Right when the volume has increased enough to the point to raise my singles. I skipped a few days of working out. This time, I took Ibuprofen when I was sick and I felt SIGNIFICANTLY better. I think it was a mild flu because it lasted a few days. Strangely, I didn't lose any top end strength really. The weight felt "shakier" but the RPE's were pretty much the same. In a strange way, it almost feels like preventing the general symptoms helped to preserve the strength? I don't know. Probably the fact that I could actually sleep helped a lot.

    I am inspired by Austin's post to do some cardio for my health. I will start off REALLY small (like 5 mins at a time trying to get heart rate to 140) because apparently when it comes to doing cardio, I have the discipline of a 5 year old. As it tuns out, strength really does provide a foundation. I did 10 out of 20 resistance on the bike today and I almost didn't feel it. I pedaled decently fast and my heart rate only got up to 125 at it's peak.

    I have right quad tendonitis. It's been building over the past 2 months. I can still train without problems, I feel it the most when I am not warmed up. I haven't mentioned my previous bouts of tendonitis in the past sometimes because I can simply just train through them and it goes away eventually. Doing things beltless means I can never truly stress my body past any "safe" limits. I would have to be doing something truly moronic in the gym to warrant a severe injury.

    I think my next wave of workouts I will be back to where I was before and I will keep trekking on. This post sickness cough is really bothersome when trying to lift, particularly on squats. I take a deep breath and then COUGH.
