Progression.

But I couldn't just leave it at that 1 crappy set -- my muscles and joints felt fine, I just had no energy or stamina to push any appreciable weight. Decided on some sets of 10; could've done those 105s all day, but what's the point? Better to just keep it light and get lots of rest. Probably go to bed at 8:00 pm tonight, and like I said, tomorrow's an off day.
Pragmatism.
