COVID vaccine and working out

I got Moderna (shot 1) on Tuesday…a week ago. Side effects: somewhat subtle; sore to the touch arm, “allergy eyes”; slightly elevated temperature (kind of a warm rush) and my old injuries: felt all of them somewhat…that seems to happen every time I get a bug). I also had slightly diminished energy.

I still walked; a training walk yesterday and a social one this morning (5K, 2 miles respectively) and also lifted today.

As usual, Lynn was good company (masks, social distance)

The walk: it did ache early yesterday; today: slight.

Shoulder: some tenderness…I did cut the bench press short as my shoulder is not ready to be challenged in that position, yet.

The weights:

pull ups: 10 singles, 10, 10 singles, 6, 6, 5, 2, 3 (2 were chin grip..these might be ok)

rotator cuff (lots) and hip hikes

bench: 10 x 94, 10 x 114, 5 x 134, 3 x 145 (cut short..wrong kind of pain on rep 3), 5 x 134

rows: 3 sets of 10 x 134

shoulder press: adjusted the spotter arms up: 10 x 99, 10 x 99, 10 x 105

curls: 3 sets of 10 x 50 (?)

shoulder will take a while.
