This cold is being a real asshole. I don't have a sore throat anymore but now everything is in my nose and face and it's impossible to breathe. I felt like garbage all morning. I was able to sleep for about an hour and a half before my appointment with Pete but I still felt really stuffed up and foggy, so Stephen said it was okay if I cut some things out and modified the weight on the strength pieces.

Met with Pete before training today so he could look at my shoulder, he said everything was very tight around my left scapula. He did some stuff to it and it already feels better, I think I'll go see him a few more times over the next few weeks. I have an appointment with Balza on Monday but I'm still trying to scrounge up the money for that. 

I went a bit lighter than prescribed on the snatch pulls, Pete and Stephen both told me to go lighter on weights today. These felt fine. 

Snatch deadlifts were better than last week but my hands were slipping off the bar, I couldn't hang on to it. 

I kept the bench press light. Pete told me not to go heavy on this because it could undo everything he worked on in our session so I didn't go any higher than 115. 

I called it after bench press, I didn't complete the HSPU piece or the sled drag. I could feel myself getting light headed during the snatch deadlifts and bench press. I hate being sick and I don't like skipping training. I'm hoping I feel better tomorrow morning.
