Toward the end of the year: saying “So Long” to 2019

Just getting caught up:

Friday: weights only, at the Riverplex. Highlights: 3 x 185 bench, 8 x 160; pull ups I had to do 4 sets of 5 to go with 3 sets of 10 then one more; I got 235 in the dead lift. Goblet: 6 x 30, 50, 70 (latter to the bench)
Saturday: very slow 10k shuffle (Cornstalk plus lower loop…lots of dog walkers)
Sunday: weight again; highlights: pull ups were very hard but got 50 total, 2 x 185 bench, 8 x 160 decline, shoulder presses were good 10 x 50, 45, 45, usual rows, deads: warm up, 1 x 230, 1 x 240, 6 x 185 Romanian, back felt fine.
3 mile walk afterward; weight 193.5 (too heavy; I like 188-189)

240 is the most I’ve gotten in the dead lift in years. I think I can keep working on it, given the new (to me), safer technique.

I caught Bradley’s 78-66 win over a tough Toledo team; BU was without an injured player, a suspended player and had kicked another off of the team. Point guard scored 29, but ultimately, getting to the line (27-32 FT) vs 11-19 was the difference. Toledo had 5 more fouls called on them.

Saying farewell to the campus in 2019.
