Wednesday – I don’t even know what I’m doing anymore…

Wednesday Ninja Training

Woke up with a headache which progressively got worse throughout the day.  I’m wondering if I did something to my neck yesterday with my random grip pullups because it feels like the headache I get sometimes the day after a big session on ninja obstacles.

Today is leg day, but my knee is still shonky as, so I thought I’d just play with some bouldering at lunchtime to try and re-toughen my hands.  The headache and overall soreness made this pretty rough, I didn’t feel agile or non-old at all, so I glad it up pretty quickly.  The last thing I need is to fall off a wall because my body and reflexes aren’t up to any challenges.

Speaking of challenges… I don’t know if it was any residue chalk on my hand, or somewhat freshness, but I was able to do 5 pull ups on the nunchuks… yesterday I could barely do one.  Was it a high-gravity day yesterday?

After work I did my tendonitis eccentric exercises… I included the bicep curls that gave me trouble last week.  I lightened the load though and they weren’t a problem at all.

My knee is still definitely an issue.  I have no idea why it hasn’t healed yet.   C’mon guy, heal!
