Slow & Steady

I happen to make it back to the gym today (I only managed to go Thursday) and hadn’t gone since then or before then because I was stuck in my rut, but since coming back, my workouts will be starting off “easy” due to not wanting to over exert myself since it has been a little while since performing the lifts — and I want to gradually bring back what is left of my muscle memory; in hopes it will help to get back to normal in routine. I still have the same days/routine but the weight is a little lighter for now. The workout wasn’t long today but it did feel good.
