week IV catastrophe

That’s it for week 4 out of 8 of my current training program. This week sucked. Sucked!

Training: Instead of continuing to implement my plan, everything fell apart on Monday when I pulled a muscle in my back. I improvised my way through Wednesday and Friday workouts. The only area I can point to where my plan continued unabated was in shoulder rehab work and burpees. Sigh. I am still in a wait and see mode post injury so maybe in this upcoming week five I’ll decide what to do about my goals and my training.

Body Recomposition: I made progress in my average waist measurement (down to its lowest point yet at 36.11″) whereas my average weight was up slightly (to right around 196, or 1 pound over my goal), and my skinfold average remained steady at 9 mm. I’m happy with all this.

The literal meaning of “catastrophe” is actually just “downturn” so I’m actually not being dramatic by referring to this week as a catastrophe. The setback in my training will just put things on hold. It won’t stop me. More later.

Let me know what you think...
