Bike, 30 minutes:
Just hopped on bike at home later in the day.
Weights were not too difficult. I didn't feel like I had lost any strength in the week off. And perhaps the rest was beneficial (rest, adapt, get stronger, blah blah). I do need to take it easy on the plyos with my foot. Shoulder is still slightly sore, which I attribute to not doing RC exercises for 3 days. My bad.
I'm going in for a magnesium injection tomorrow am, as I had some major cramping issues at the end of last week.
On another note, I've lost 5-6 pounds since beginning BHRT & thyroid therapy without changing my diet at all. In reality, I've been exceedingly skeptical about the "calories in calories out" mindset, as previously it appeared that my weight stayed the same no matter what I ate or how much I exercised. I now have a "hormones rule the world and you better hope nothing goes wrong" mindset. lol.
I've also heard from my coach, who's from Canada, that the pool for Canadian Masters Nationals at the end of May, Claude Robillard, is very fast. Very tempting!
