Slacker walk after deadlifts

So, the walk itself was a high 15 minute per mile affair in West Peoria. I wasn’t that focused.

But the deadlfits:

Deficit: 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 1 x 224

Neutral: (low handle) 1 x 254

High handle: 1 x 289 (not that bad)

1 x 294 (a hard effort)

Low handle: 10 x 224

So my current bests are 274 low handle, 294 high handle, though I think the latter will still keep going up.

Progression:

August 5, 2019: managed a High Handle hex dead 225 (1 rep)
