I am still sick and my lungs particularly are not up to par. Case in point. I was gasping for breath in between sets of back squats. I worked up to 205 for 5 with 2 sets of chains. That is close to my max, so my strength is hanging in there. But I did not have speed anywhere close to what I normally have. Plus, my joints hurt - shoulder and knees, which limited my rack position and overall enjoyment today.
Took a pass on the met con wod due to lung capacity and worked on some band stretching and back extensions. I was winded just from that!
Hoping to recover soon.
