Saturday,September 3

Notes: Neck is NOT ok. Skipped normal Saturday class.

Start of Deload Week

Monday,September 4

Deload Day 2

Notes: Neck still not right. Didn’t do anything.

Tuesday,September 5

Deload Day 3

Notes: Deload days not going as planned due to neck injury. In desperation, got appointment with Airrosti. They saw me. Their treatment was epic painful (likely writing a review later) but I think it is helping.
