I thought I was improving , but the last few weeks have been horrible
I worked one scale up to 18o bpm 4 notes per beat- was starting to get a little exited and then blam
today was even having trouble holding the pick at 70, 80 and 90 bpm's, and that is so mach slower then I can play
it is just driving me crazy, don't know how to get over this hurdle ,had to put the guitar down just so i wouldn't smash it

I know we all have bad days , but are there days when you can't even go half the speed you have been playing at?
and if so was there any thing you did to push through it?

Well, that isn't matter of will. Your body is under strain after hours of playing, so...
You can only rest, you're overtrained, to put it in bodybuilding jargon! wink.gif

Like Vasilije said, you had intensive workout and muscles need time to relax. Your brain also needs time to settle down the muscle memory properly.
