Congratulations to me! I managed to make it exactly one month and 2 days before I got sick again!
This isn't right, what is going on? I was in Calgary for a conference, I didn't work out, I didn't train, or anything, just took it easy. But on my flight home, I started to feel it coming. Uh oh, I thought. By the time I was home I was already getting feverish.
Makes me wonder if I should just live in a bubble.
Anyways, I'm better now, and I'm so close to the end I can taste it. Not having to be forced to go to the gym every second day or else I'll fall behind on my Madcow program, not having to eat 6 meals a day with each one feeling like a losing battle, not having to work so hard lifting weights but have no gas in the ring. I'm on the last week of Madcow, and I technically should be done by now, but I've had a few hiccups, a couple that I mentioned already and I've also had troubles with a few of the lifts. I know it's my last week, but I want to finish it strong and earn every bit of it. So if it takes me another 2 weeks to finish, so be it. I went to the gym today and I couldn't finish the sets but this happens everytime after I get sick, so I'll just rest up and get back to it in a couple days. I've been sitting steadily at 150 lbs so no complaints there. It's not the 155 lbs I had initially wanted but I'm happy with it.
My other goal was to become part of the 1000lb club. I think I talked about it before, but it's when your combined deadlift, bench press, and squat is over 1000lb. Right now I've lifted 980lbs. soooo close! I can't give up yet, I just got push through a little bit longer....
