I've had a look in your journal, the volume you're doing on leg day is outrageous!
 
Managed a gentle 10k last night in just over an hour. 
 
Trained back this morning:
 
Chins: 5x5 
Deadlift: WUs 8x60kg 5x80kg, 3x100kg, 3x102.5kg, 3x105kg, 3x105kg, 3x107.5kg
CG pulldowns: 3x8x60kg
Cable rows: 5x35kg, 3x8x40kg
DB Bicep curls: 5x5x14kg
 
Quick run - 2k in 10 mins
 
Weighed in at 74kg this morning so fairly consistent with January but feel a lot more solid than I was back then.
 
Travelling to Germany tomorrow so will be out of the gym until Thursday at the earliest. Bit frustrating as I'm getting into a nice rhythm with it.

A good session which will see you through nicely until next week I'm sure mate. It won't take long to get back into your stride; in fact, after a few days' rest it may even be to your advantage. Just keep tabs on your diet.
Enjoy the trip

Cheers Floydy. 
 
I came back with a bit of a virus. Tried to fight it off yesterday by covering myself in Vics and going for a run but I only managed 4k before I admitted defeat and returned to my bed. Got into the gym today (again slathered in Vics) and managed a very poor session:
 
Shoulder Press: WUs 8x20kg 5x40kg,3x5x50kg, 5x40kg
DB Arnie Press: 3x8x14kg
DB lat raises: 3x8x8kg
Front raise Plate: 3x8x10kg
Front raise Bar: 3x8x15kg
Single arm extensions: 3x8x7.5kg
 
Now time for a lemsip and an early night.

Dips: 3x5 +10kg

Good on you going when you're not up to it. Seems like every time you travel you come back with something lol

I know Brett, I think it's getting the cheap 6am flights. Struggling to shake this but powering on with the help of lemsip and vics vapour rub. 
 
Back today:
Chins: 5x5 
Deadlift: WUs 8x60kg 5x80kg, 3x100kg, 4x3x110kg, 1x112.5kg, 1x115kg, 1x117.5kg, 1x120kg
Cable rows: 8x40kg, 8x42.5kg, 8x45kg
CG pulldowns: 2x8x65kg, 8x60kg
DB Bicep curls: 5x5x14kg
 
Situps: 4x25
Press-ups: 20,15,10,5
 
Did the best part of the Limber 11 stretch routine to try to free up my legs and had a gentle cycle. 
 
Having a frustrating week waiting for job applications so pushed myself a little further on the deadlift today and I'm pleased to have hit 120kg today.
