    More training w/ COVID. Hit with fever Friday afternoon and again on Saturday. Easily knocked back with acetaminophen. Spent yesterday as worthless on the couch or in bed.

    I hope to squat/deadlift again on Saturday.

    No problem. Not sure how long this 5lb/wk horse will run, but we'll stay cinched up and let him have his head.

    Quit after 1 set - HR wouldn't come down in a "reasonable" amount of time.

    Lying down did not help with HR.

    Some residual fatigue from COVID. I've had 2 or 3 days where I crashed for a nap, or in chair around 7pm.

    Need to get back work (physical location) to get away from the fridge and the pantry.

    I'll be at my Old Man SS Bench/Press PR's (set Mar/Apr '18) by the end of the year. I suppose this is where the work - and mind games - start.

    Sure.

    And currently, no viable excuse to quit/slow lifting until mid-March. Imagine what could happen by then.

    S1: Good focus throughout. Decent set.
    S2: R5 G-R-I-N-D. Surprised myself by not quitting on it.
    S3: R1 had to step. Pulled it together for rest of set.
    S4&5: Non-eventful.

    Some 70's smooth rock/pop to take the mind on a trip back to tan, appropriately proportioned girls wearing bikini/tube tops and cutoff jean shorts (or those solid color terrycloth/cotton ones with the white trim).
