So I made a few mistakes this morning. Luckily these mistakes were either beneficial or really didn’t have an impact on anything. One of the mistakes that didn’t impact anything was something I didn’t notice until I went to take off my shoes for squats (you should try it) and noticed something strange.
I guess mismatching shoes is what happens when you put on your shoes at 4:00 in the morning. I should probably be surprised that this type of thing doesn’t happen more often. Also, my workout shoes are old and tightened up a lot on the laces. May be time to upgrade.
The second was I left my weightlifting belt in the gym. I seem to be getting more and more forgetful when it comes to leaving things in places. I sometimes have left my dirty clothes bag in the locker room (sorry guys), sometimes leave my doo-rag I wear when I exercise hanging in the locker room (sorry again)… hopefully I don’t forget something important! I was able to go grab my belt before it was taken or anything, so that was fine also.
The beneficial mistake was that I didn’t pay attention to the quantity of lifts I did with squats two weeks ago when I did the HIIT 100s. To be fair, I did mention at that point that I would either have to go back to 10 x 10 or increase the weight, but I completely forgot about it and just started increasing the weight AND the reps. About halfway through I noticed in my app that last time I had only done 5, 5, 6, 6, 7 reps at even lower weights. Oops! Oh well, at least I know I was able to slightly increase the weight and drastically increase the reps (from 79 total to 100 total) without any problems. Maybe it was because I was wearing my belt, maybe it was because I was squatting barefoot, or maybe two weeks ago it was far too easy.
Other than that, the day went fine. I did everything I planned from a Project 7×52 perspective, got through all of my work, watched AGT and some other shows, and am ready to hit the hay!
