Time to get back on track

I admit that 11 days ago, my online teaching ended for the semester. I had not felt the angst that others have felt during “shutdown”. Now…it is getting to me, just a little. The reason: I really do not know what the semester will bring. I am confident that I’ll be teaching students and have one class lined up. I have students in two other classes, but as of now, both are in the same time slot so obviously, I won’t be teaching one of those.

And given our university’s changes…which classes? How many students? Online, in person, or hybrid? Heck..who will be my colleagues; my uni is offering a buyout that might be attractive to those with a large nest egg or near retirement. So much uncertainty..and mind you, I have it better than others have it.

Workout notes: just weights.

rotator cuff, free squats
note: I cannot reach the same depth without weight than I can with weight…

pull ups: 3 sets of 10, 5-5 (wide), set of 10, 2 sets of 5 chin ups, penalty set of 2. Not bad.
bench press (hip hikes): 10 x 132, 3 sets of 5 x 176 (solid)
outdoor: standing shoulder with 1 inch bar: 10 x 67, 10 x 85, 5 x 93, 4 x 98, 5 x 93
goblet squat to the footstool: 6 x 44, 6 x 44, 6 x 60, 6 x 60 (felt ok)
rows (indoor) 3 sets of 8 x 134 (trap bar)
dumbbell press: 10, 10 7 x 44 standing (sloppy at the end)
2:30 plank

It sure doesn’t look like I did that much, does it. Yes, B went for a walk.
