Short One

I was dragging this morning.  While I finished the weekend with a good recovery session and had a great workout on Saturday, I did not attend to the basics.  Friday night my sleep was poor to say the best.  The rest of the weekend I ate mostly junk food.  Since my goal is to not drop anymore weight before the contest, I seem to have used it as an excuse to eat whatever I want.  Ironically, I'd probably be doing better if I just treated the contest as another weekend free day.  Ah well.  This morning I did:

Farmers Walk with 16k Kettlebells (200ft)
12k Kettlebell Warm Up
Turkish Get Ups: 3/3x12k; 3x1/1x16k
Kettlebell Squats: 10xBW, 12k, 16k

That was where I cut it off.  Each set of the squats was a battle of will power.  I was standing in my gym with my 24k bell in my hands and just couldn't bring myself to squat down.  Rather than beat my head against the wall, I went inside.

On the positive, I did start the workout with Turkish Get Ups, which I think is a good place for them.  At first they were hard to start, but then I got into a groove.  Between those and the farmers walk, I did warm up quite well.  My drive was just missing.  Today I will focus on eating clean and make sure I am in bed on time.  Tomorrow's workout will be better.
