Hey! You're not listening.

I played switcharoo with my training last week - swapping workouts around all over the place so that I didn't have to go to the gym on this day or that for various reasons. In the end, I fitted everything in, so no big deal. Until this week.

Tuesday's workout plan included upper body. If I'd followed my program, I'd have last trained upper body on Friday. But I played switch and ended up doing that one on Sunday. Late on Sunday. So on Tuesday, I was still suffering some pretty severe DOMS and yeesh! I had to front up for some more upper body torture.

I contemplated switching again...but then I'd probably end up in the same boat at some point. So I decided that I'd just have to do it, but I'd make it a light workout. In my mind, I'd already decided to head into the women's gym, where I could wave my 'little' weights around unnoticed. I drove to the gym, paid my money at reception, and found myself walking into the main gym. Uh..... What the...?? I was actually thinking No, no - you're training in the other gym today... but my feet apparently weren't listening and just kept right on going.

So what could I do? I grabbed a bench, loaded up the bar with my normal weights and just did it.

The moral of this story? I have no idea.... except that obviously my body doesn't always listen to my brain and sometimes that's a good thing because my brain is being a wuss.

Or perhaps I just have one of those split-personality things going on, a la Sybil.

I've done that before when I'm running - my head says I can't run any further but my legs keep going. I guess it's a good thing :D
