Dead ending or Dead lifting?

Workout notes: yesterday, a routine 4 mile hike at Forest Park Nature Center. There I ran into the very lovely Lori Lindo; she was a runner from the “old school” back in the 1996-2001 era. She worked down to a 3:12 marathon, and we were reasonably well matched in the 5K (though she left me almost 30 minutes behind in the marathon).

Today: weights only. No, I did not weigh myself though I suspect I am up. I wore sweats.
Rotator cuff
pull ups: 10-10-10-5-5, (5-5), then 10 later (60 in total); sort of a challenge.
dead lifts: 6 x 135, 1 x 185, 1 x 225 (missed once too), 3 minute rest, 1 x 235 (easier than the 225), 6 x 205, then did a set of 6 x 135 going from a shallow step.
bench press: 10 x 135, 3 x 185 (strong), 10 x 160
military: 9 x 50 standing, 10 x 45, 10 x 45
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 100 machine
goblet squats: 6 x 30, 6 x 50, then 6 x 70 (too high of a bench for this last one)
2:30 plank, headstand

I should have gotten my hair cut prior to lifting? (LOL)

I feel better about the deadlift; a change of technique is enabling me to practice this without hurting myself. Maybe I’ll get better; I have to remember that back in 2010 even a 115 lb. incline lift was difficult as was a 30 lb. shoulder press (which is what I do instead of a true military press) Right now, my pull ups and bench press ..and even my shoulder press is far, far better (not that these are good).

Personal: we had a bat in the house. It was easy to capture with a soft laundry basket.
