Taking a few days off

Saturday, I carried 4 20×20 pavers up to the roof (4 stories), and 4 16×16 (two at a time for those). I felt OK yesterday, and had planned to squat, but a botched delivery time (they were supposed to come in the AM, but didn’t get here until after 2, and took longer to get things done than expected), kept me home instead of getting to the gym.

Today, I’m stiff as all get out, and one of my knees is bothering me. I’m heading out on a business trip this afternoon (I have to leave my house by 1:45); the plan was to squat and press quickly this morning. Ain’t gonna happen.

So, I’ll squat on Thursday or Friday. I think I’ll just pick up where I left off, but might redo the last week of 5’s.

Not happy about it, but there’s not much I can do when my schedule gets blown up. Would have been no big deal to blow off a press workout and stay on track, but I don’t want to skip squatting.
