The ripple effect

I may have overdone it just a little. I pressed heavier than I needed to, and I knew it when I did it. I made one shoulder sore on the front side. It's also the side I sleep on, so now my sleep is this hybrid of making my shoulder worse and making the rest of me aggravated.

So, I'm missing sleep this week and skipping workouts. I hate doing that, but I never put iron overhead if my mind isn't clear. I'm hoping to sleep in Saturday morning, get coffee, then lift and run.

I also just bought a friend's barbells and squat rack. I was shocked at how awkward and heavy everything seemed to be, even though I routinely handle kettelebells heavier than a 45lb plate. I'm a little nervous and a lot excited about restarting this muscle-building cycle with actual weights. It's about to get real up in here.
