This week I’m back on track, after a week or so off. I managed to get two short workouts in while my sick baby was sleeping, but not super great ones. A few things I noticed after my week off:
- My stamina was not as strong. On Monday I went to my usual TCX class. I didn’t expect to see a difference in my cardiovascular abilities, but I seriously lost steam by 45 minutes in. The last 15 minutes were SO brutal! I wanted to take a nap right there on my step bench.
- My Assisted Chin Up abilities got better! I don’t know why, or how, but somehow the break helped me take off another 5 lbs. of help! Now I need 30 lbs, rather than 35.
- I lost a couple pounds. Not sure how. Unless I quickly lost muscle, which in that case is not good. But, it could also be why I was more successful on the assisted chin up.
Overall, a week off is not the worst thing to happen. I used to believe that a week off would ruin my progress altogether, so I might as well just quit. My quitter tendencies would say it wasn’t worth it. But actually, it wasn’t so bad.
