Dealing with it

Shoulder remains sore…though I think, improved a bit?

Emotionally: it was a good day, though I think the pandemic is finally getting to me a bit; I see so many getting vaccinated and I am champing at the bit for mine..knowing all the while that, in the name of fairness AND public health, others should come first.

And yes, others…people I used to like, are starting to grate on me. I suspect my friend’s list will be culled quite a bit afterward, and I know that my days of seeking out crowded events won’t return anytime soon.

Weird times.

And no, I am NOT looking forward to other things.

I know; this is a bit cryptic.


rotator cuff and hip hikes.

pull ups; sets of 10 singles (4 sets) then 2 sets of 5, very controlled, and above average quality.

Bench: 10 x 134 half-assed, 10 x 134 decent, 2 x 170; decided to stop there, then 10x 134. Not ready for full benches; maybe try some light pin presses on Tuesday.

rows: 3 sets of 10 x 134 (0k)

shoulder press: 3 sets of 10 x 105 (pretty solid; ok)

curls: used 10 kg plates (perhaps 23 kg total?) 3 sets of 10.

Then: a reasonable walk; 5K at 14:48 mpm. The walk was almost totally pain free.

Note: my pull ups. Given I can do 10 pull ups (not done today, but I can do 10 respectable pull ups), you’d think I’d look better or look more muscular than I do. But I don’t. Sigh…
