Squat 1 x 3,8,5 @ 90/75/80%
Deadlift 1 x 5 @ 80%
Found out why I was feeling beat. Apparently I have the flu.
Should have expected it. The same thing has happened after every other ultra.
So, in light of that, we will see if I actually get to this workout.
People always ask about if they should train when they are sick.
As a guy who spent most of his life training while sick or not, I have a few thoughts on this.
For one, if you go to a commercial gym, no. You are being a jerk to everyone after you, if you go and get them sick.
Otherwise, do what feels right.
Missing one day will not kill you or mess to ask of your gains. If you do go and hurt yourself because you try to hard and your body isn’t ready, you can lose weeks.
While historically, I have trained regardless, my logs tell me it doesn’t help and usually hurts. So, this time around I’m learning my own lesson.
So, if you feel strong enough to train, sure, I’d be a hypocrite to say otherwise.
But, I’d be remissed if I didn’t tell you that you’re taking a gamble and the odds are not in your favor if you do decide to train.
