Not giving up too soon (practice)

I am continuing to write ..I have paper with a deadline of November 1. I am making good progress; the mathematics is essential done. But the write up is a bit strange to me (science format as opposed to the classical mathematics format)

Yesterday: yoga with Ms. V. then a 10K run (1:18 or so). The run started off horribly; I even walked a bit in the first 1/4 mile! Eventually the body warmed up..I told myself “make it to Hooters” (about 3/4 mile or 1.2 km away) and once I did I was able to finish the run easily, though my pace was very slow. It was a pretty day for it. Weight: 189, same as today.

This morning: weights only; rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10; ok), bench: 10 x 135, 4 x 175 (wanted more but the left shoulder ..ugh), 3 x 185 (struggled with the last rep), 10 x 165 decline. military: 10 x 50 standing, 15 x 50 seated, supported, 10 x 40 standing (that is, two 50 lb. dumbbells, two 40 lb. dumbbells, etc.) rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110.

Goblet squats: 6 x 25, 50, 50, 60. Dead: regular dead 4 x 135 (felt very light but I wanted to see how my back felt), hex bar: 4 x 175 (just a slight tug).
Planks finished the workout.

Then I helped a friend move out; I will miss her terribly.
