After I spent my morning bike shopping (See post below for new bike picture)then it was off to the gym for the beginning of Week 2 and Chest & Back.
I was feeling a bit sluggish today so I took 3 scoops of the NO-Xplode pre-workout drink in a 16-0z water bottle. Now this was a good idea because I was super jacked up to workout. It was a bad idea because during my workout it gave me a light-headed feeling that is still with me right now. Very weird. I took this supplement for 12 weeks before and not once did I get this light-headed feeling. I am thinking it may have happened because I missed my mid-morning snack and had a lighter than normal lunch.
I still had a decent workout but I banged myself up some. My left shoulder, which put me on the shelf for about a month last year, is acting up again. I was doing military dumbbell presses the second time through and I felt a little ting in the muscle. I backed off on the amount of weight and it didn't really bother me but it has been barking some since I got home. Also, I have no idea how I did it, but my left hamstring is feeling tender. I do not think either of these are going to set me back at all but it still sucks.
Tomorrow is a cardio day so I am going to hit the pool and do a bunch of laps. Swimming is the weakest link for me so I am really going to need to focus on this for the next Triathlon on October 18th.
