maxresdefault[3]Despite my cranky right knee I had intended to do some squatting on the smith machine today.  Well both of them were occupied so I was diverted back to the leg press sled for the second consecutive week.  I had some small upward movement in my numbers but nothing all that exciting.

I have not had much enthusiasm about working out recently.  By the time I am done with my 5 minute warm up on the cross trainers I quite often have a “I don’t really feel like being here” thought running through my brain.  Now I still force myself to put work in but I wonder if my feelings about are just reflective of old age or something else.  I know that feeling significantly injured for the last few months certainly has not helped my state of mind.
