Not quite drowning

Well, finishing kick for the semester; spent much of the day writing up a final exam and grading an exam 3. I SHOULD be caught up by Tuesday or Wednesday.

This semester: has had its challenges and some degree of suck. But it has had some upsides too.

Walking: yep; my piriformis is torched; I have to make an appointment and have to bite the bullet on laying off of walking for a while and maybe getting PT.

Friday: 2.1 at 13:59 but, yeah, the piriformis actually hurt toward the end (1.6 onward)

Today: easy 19 minute mile walk; got tingles..not quite pain but …but..the silver lining is that stretching afterward made it feel better.

If I walk at all, I have to think of “rehab” rather than “training”

Today’s weights: shoulder tolerated it well.

pull ups: rough (after eating lunch?) 2 sets of 10 singles, then 5’s to get to 50

push ups: 29, 31, 20, 20 for 100: these were a challenge and got that chest burn.

shoulder presses: 10 x 75, 7 x 75 close grip, 5 x 75, 5 x 75 close grip, 5 x 75, then 5 x 80, 3 x 80 for video. These are working well

curls: 3 sets of 10 x 50 strict

rows: 4 sets of 10 x 134
