Following any truly tragic periods in life, in my experience, a better day usually follows a nondescript shit day such as yesterday. Today, sure enough, was better. It was nothing special, and my training was pretty low intensity, but it was a good day and flowed nicely. I trained at 4pm outside my gym in the sunshine.
20 Rounds Not For Time:
5 Strict Pull-Ups
Wearing 12kg weight vest.
Although I wasn't pushing for a time here, I did keep time and it took 26:37. I used the pull-up bar we'll be using for Mountain Murph, which may have slowed me a little.
No real structure, just ten minutes on the clock and plenty of swinging my 6kg mace. As my blog highlights, I've neglected this recently, and my shoulders were feeling a little rough. They now feel superb.

Today was a solid food day. I ate well, but also did my big butcher's shop. Doing that always gets me more excited about eating well.
At 7am I had 3 bacon rashers, 3 fried eggs and some berries.
At 11:30am I had 1lb of mince with cheese. I followed this with a satsuma.
At 5pm I had a satsuma.
At 7pm I had 2 cod loins, 2 rump steak kebabs, some halloumi, and a block each of stilton and Manchego. I followed this with berries, Greek yoghurt and honey.
