Finished a section of my first draft today; hopefully the rest will follow quickly.

Workout notes: weights then an easy 4 mile walk in Bradley Park (work there is done). Rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10), goblet squats (6 x 30, 50, 60), military (dumbbell), 10 x 50 (standing), 15 x 50 seated, 10 x 40 (standing), rows (3 sets of 10 x 110), incline: 10 x 135, decline 10 x 165, hex deadlift: 4 x 175, 4 x 205. Back: slightly sore.
Planks, etc.

Posts These complement each other:

Sure, it is about shooting, but also: what makes someone angry and lonely? And, though this video talks about right wing males, I’ve seen evidence of this with respect to liberals, including liberal females. I’ve watched personalities change.

And this post is about the pitfalls of “meritocracy”: even the “successful” end up bitter and angry (overwork). I honestly believe that someone does have some agency here: one can choose a lower paying but “less hours” job in which..if it is part of a career, you can at least enjoy aspects of the job.

Interesting food for thought, I think.

Chiefs lose again…ugh..

First things first: I am behind on my workout posts. Weight: 189 both days.
Monday: weights only; rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10), bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, incline: 10 x 135, decline: 10 x 165. military: 7 x 50 standing, 15 x 50 seated (supported), 10 x 40 standing (dumbbells, one 50 in each hand), rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50 single arm, 10 x 110 machine. goblet squats: 6 x 30, 6 x 50, 6 x 60. hex dead: 4 x 175, 4 x 205, 1 x 225 (easier than last week); plank, etc.

Tuesday: yoga then running: 6.1 shuffle (Prospect hill run..shortest possible 1:18. It really wasn’t much of an effort..mostly easy and I let my mind wander.

What I’ve been doing: writing away…I keep finding stuff to add; relevant stuff. It is kind of fun, really.

Chiefs game: another loss; this time 7-2 to the Timber Rattlers. Of note: the Chiefs hit into two double plays via well hit line drives that went right to someone..while the Chiefs had base runners. A few inches to either side could well have been solid hits. It has been that kind of season.

Bob and Joan are in the background; they have season tickets and I frequently talk to them.

Lovely sunset: taken by the Chiefs.

The scoreboard tells the story; the Chiefs did add a couple of runs.

This is one of scores of birds that flew overhead during the game; they kept circling. I wonder if there were insects in the sky.

National Anthem: well done by a duet.

Early game action.
