I’ve had one decent nights sleep in the past week or so and last night’s is a record breaker for awful. But I need to squat this morning and I’m determined to stay on track as the weights are finally coming up as I rehab my back.
So I need espresso. Now. That’s easy. I also need good music. The music part is tricky. I can’t have something too metal or it will give me a full blown headache before I train and right now the baby lack-of-good-sleep headache that’s walking around with me is tolerable. I can’t have something too mellow or I’ll just want to lay down on the platform and take a much needed nap.
So I went with Serj Tankian’s Occupied Tears. The slow start that ramps up to an acceptable bang, with a soft break in the middle, and a kick ass ending without going overboard is just what I need. Plus, someone actually spent time on putting together a decent video. Win/win.
Enjoy your weekend.
