Frigid. I stayed inside.
pull ups: 4 sets of 10, 2 sets of 7 (these went ok)
bench: 10 x 135, 3 x 185 (weak..the second rep didn’t touch my chest just right), 4 x 175
decline: 7 x 175
clean and press: 2 sets of 4 x 95 (lowered it below the shoulders instead of partial reps..THAT might be causing back soreness)
dumbbell press (parallel) 2 sets of 10 x 45
rows: Hammer: 3 sets of 10 x 200
goblet squats: 6 x 25, 50, 70, 70 (used a bench to ensure going down..made sure it was a “butt touch” rather than “hamstring touch”)
17 laps lane 1: 29:37 (14:13, 13:41, 1:41)
Weight afterward (shoes and shorts) 193.5 but that was after walking; that was 191 without.
Women’s game tonight.
I might talk a bit more about the election.
Well, this wasn’t snowmageddon but it is cold and there is a LOT of frozen slush around. After yoga, I elected to run 4 miles on the Riverplex track (7.3 laps to the mile); in 45:51:
12:16, 11:12, 11:02, 11:20 (tiring); this was about a 10:24 average. (1.096 miles very 8 laps; the last 3 miles were about “10 minute-ish”)
I am not quite over my cold..in terms of strength but the cough is all but gone. At full strength, I would have gone for another mile.
This followed a gentle yoga class that was sparsely attended.
Last night’s Bradley Men’s Basketball game was also sparsely attended.
The cold front was moving in at the time and there was snow.
The game itself: it was 33-29 at the half; back and forth. And with 9:30 to go: it was 51-51. But BU tightened its defense and pulled away to win 72-61, taking control with about 3 minutes to go or so.
It is a great feeling to go to a Bradley Basketball game, either the Men’s or Women’s game, and *expect* a BU victory. I’ve got a couple of BU Women’s games coming up this weekend.
