And what I got for Christmas

Ok, I did get a couple of nice gifts; one I am eager to try out.

I did manage a 4 mile walk (Bradley Park); very slow but in line with what an “easy, off day” walk should be for me..and it was in the high 40’s and sunny!
I did a few dead lifts in our basement (I have an old 305 lb weight set); managed a few with 135, 6 reps with 187 (44, 22, 44 lb bar and 5.5 lb collars) and then 1 with 231 (220 plus the collars).

I tried this out:

I wasn’t noticeably stronger BUT my back didn’t hurt! I think it can help me work my muscles.

Then Christmas lunch with family and a friend.
