Deload Week

I started getting a cold last weekend that lasted into the first half of week, but it was actually perfect timing because I was thinking about taking a deload week anyways before transitioning into month 2 of the leg program I'm following.

Also perfect timing was the weather-it was absolutely gorgeous and SO warm the first few days of the week! Gotta love 85 degrees in October. I just had to take my workouts outside to take advantage of it...because I know we may not have many more days like this left. I didn't feel too bad, but definitely didn't have much strength or endurance, so I kept the weights light or just did bodyweight exercises.

By Friday I felt pretty good so I decided to finish the week in the gym, but I still kept the weights pretty light(ish).
