    Considerably lower holds than normal?

    Hello everyone. I have only been working on dry static apnea for a couple weeks. I have worked up to about a 3:00 max, but today I am really struggling to make it to 1:30. Are bad days something that happen occasionally, is there something I might be doing that is reversing my progress? Thanks!
