Inability to thread the needle.

One of these guys is really good at distance running. The other guy is really good at powerlifting. Notice anything?

And yes, that is the needle I am trying to thread. And I am failing..sort of.

I am about 25 lb. too heavy to be a decent runner; I really need to weigh under 170. But I am about 50-60 lb. too light to be as strong as I could be. And I have no desire to gain that much weight nor to lose that much weight. And it is just as well; I can improve at running and at lifting, but I’ll never be “good” at either.

As far as today’s workout:

I had a good walk on Thursday. Today’s deadlifting: I started with dead legs and they were quivering early into it. This wasn’t going to be good day in terms of deadlifting..

Hex bar: (back still slightly sore..but a lot better)
6 x 134
5 x 184
1 x 228 (not great)
1 x 250 (not pretty, but a PR for a trap bar deadlift for me); 1 miss first.
1 x 228 (still hard)
Straight bar:
2 x 239 (forget 5); time to call it a day.
6 x 184 Romanian
8 x 134 stiff leg; felt good.

Yes, that was a PB with the trap bar, but I didn’t really try to max on this when I went up with my straight bar dead lift.

Then a nice walk where I saw the lovely Cassie.

Issue: last week’s session: I switched to Sumo to make my sets and I haven’t quite recovered from that. So I need to do super light, “form” reps for the next 6 days and see.

Now the walk; to the Riverfront and back; took photos (16:30 ish pace or so)
