Progress, inch by inch

Deadlifts, slow, rainy walk, and a cat.

My deadlift progression continues:

warm up: 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 3 x 224
work set: 3 x 265, 3 x 265, 3 x 170, 3 x 270, 3 x 270

high handle (tired); 1 x 290, 1 x 300

Then 2.25 miles of walking at 15:48; kind of slow, achy..not into it..rainy.

Cats:

It started to ache and I just wasn’t into it.

Note the glasses.

Deadlifts: my 5’th working set (3 x 270) and final single (300: high handle) are shown.
