Day One of No Sleep

Last night was my (our) first with limited sleep. We brought the baby home from the hospital yesterday, I tried to keep her up until around midnight, got to bed a little after that, got up around 2am to see if my wife needed help with her, was back up at 4am to feed her then finally up for the day around 6am.

I didn't want to push it too much today. I'm now in my garage and it's a hot, hot, humid day here in NY.

This is today...

Jerk: 2 x 16kg - 5 minutes @ 6 rpm

Snatch: 16kg - 6 minutes @ 16 rpm

I'm amazed at how much more 'doable' these jerk sets are now feeling. They used to feel impossible. I could have pushed further but I figured to save that for tomorrow and the next day and the day after that, etc.

During my snatches I tried to focus on dropping the bell into my fingers. Seemed ok early on but as the set progressed so did that articulation. Just something else I now need to keep track of in my head I guess.

That's it for today!

your nuts for even trying to do anything with that little of sleep. But then again it's hard for me to judge. When I was feeling that way, I'd just finished a long pregnancy, long labor, and had to get over a C-section! So I guess the men have it MUCH easier!!!!!!

Okay enough ranting. Congrats again on your new addition. I hope you are giving her lots of kisses.

Hi Lauren,

Ha! We do have it much easier than you!

I was also riding on adrenaline at that point. Not to worry the sleep deprivation is catching up with me now! And yes, lots of kisses!
