Back in August I began a weightlifting program and I have been trying to stick to it as much as I can. Inevitably, things get in the way of the scheduled training and it does produce some self-scolding. Using the “reserve clause” was eye-opening, as today I have the flu and will not be able to train. I intended to train but it was not entirely in my control.
