Haven't felt myself lately. Work has been super stressful (I'm a teacher). My passion for what I love isn't as strong as it used to be. I seem to be preoccupied with my work situation. I'm also a little depressed. I'm thinking I might go see the doctor and get a physical. Get some blood work done and check for various levels on things. Has anyone else gone through a similar experience? I usually very resilient to life's challenges but this year is getting me down.

Did 18.4 RX today. Only got 21 DL @ 225lb. I just could get even 1 HSPU and I've done one before.... Did better on the DL then I thought I would.

Tim- Good Idea to go to the DOC and get things checked out. I never went to the Doc., when I hit 50 I've tried to get a Physical every year. I'm 54, and also have found "work" is not the same after 36 years of IT work. I have a new boss, that I don't match up well with. I know thats a big part of my problem. But, I realize I am changing.......I don't like going to work every day. I'd like to quit and do contract work, so I could take breaks in between gigs. The good thing here Tim, is you see it and realize you need to look in the Mirror and figure things out. Patrick

Mon 19 March

We have had a stomach-flu in our family, 5 of 6 got it:mad:
I decided to skip the hole 18.4 but my wife encouraged me to go and do at least something..even feeling still weak. So i did go and thought i do few deadlifts with that 225lbs

Some warmup, some curls and tri presses, light romanian deads.
Then 225lbs on the bar and rep,rep rep...nonstop to 21 and thought, now i go home. Before i did go i still watched the video and noticed, only 20 reps. So i did a second set to do those 21 reps full.

Tim, like Bill said it looks from your workouts your ok. Teachers job is not an easy one, i respect the teachers :notworth:
If you check some bloodtests, i would ask for vitamin-D and testostereone level.
How much sunlight do you have over there, are you eating xtra vit-D?
I consume at winter time (like many i know who trains regulary) a 100uq a day for some 5 days/week, at least 50uq. It really is a psych-med for lots of people, for me too.
Pine pollen, fenugreek, mucuna puriens powder are good natrulal testo-boost giving energy and good mood.
If i feel "overtrained" (mood down, irritated, sleep bad) or so, for several days in a row, i buy a bottle of pine pollen powder, or mucuna powder and consume it and it usually works fine. I belive in those.
Hopefully you feel yourself soon again!

Thanks guys for the kind and wise words. I am definitely getting blood work done to for vitamin D levels and testosterone levels. Sun levels are pretty low in Ohio during the winter. So vitamin D levels might be low even though I do take a vitamin D supplement. It helps to be able to discuss this matter with men my age.
