I remain very concerned about my work/home/training balance. I had hoped to train Monday, but ended up working 3 hours late instead. I am at the point now, where I NEED work to be easy, so that I can focus on training, but instead work remains a pig. A greedy, arrogant pig. Not to pin it on anyone in specific, I personally like my team, I like my boss, I like the work itself, but the workload is a pig. It just keeps taking and taking, and gives less back than it takes. I guess a lot of jobs are like that. Selfish and greedy. But I feel bad because now I cant be as ready for the summer strongman season as much as I would like (and I am also not getting to do as good of a job at work as I would like). Neither my training nor my diet have been consistent, and my bucket isn’t big enough for all of these energy drains. I don’t feel like I am progressing as I would like to in my training. But time keeps creeping forward.

So, back at it on Tuesday, office afternoon workout. Phasing out my elbow sleeves for main lifts moving forward.
