oday was one of the toughest workouts I've had and I realized a few things. I realized I was having trouble breathing because of allergies. The kind of trouble where it's difficult to breathe which means I'm not getting enough oxygen. A lack of oxygen means I feel lethargic and my body doesn't heal as quickly after workouts. That explains why I've been the way I've felt the past few days. Then today, it was a struggle to do the workouts. I probably shouldn't even has tried. My breathing was laboured. I took longer rests between sets just to suck air. Normally I'd do three rotations, but cut it to two. I'm amazed I got through two.
