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)
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)
