Other stuff: got a head start on grading; exams are take-home and so I can grade them as they come in. 20 done, 70 to go.
I hope to make a couple of baseball games this week..tomorrow night and Wednesday night.
Workout: swimming and lifting; a tough duo.
The swimming wasn’t that much:
200 free to warm up (slow as hell, but not that painful…shoulder issues)
200 drill/swim (side kick, swim) with fins.
200 alternating 50 free, 50 pull (higher body position)
200 strokes: 6 x 25 alternating breast, free, 50 side.
200 drill/swim (side kick, swim) with fins
200: 4 x 50 on the 1:10 (about 57 each..pretty sorry)
The whole thing was 1200 yards (just under 1100 meters) and took 32 minutes. Sorry…
These were the fins I took for a spin. I like them.
Then I walked home and tried to lift.
Pull ups: 10 singles (2 sets of those) and a lot of sets of 5; enough to get 50 reps; so-so quality. I was fatigued but I’ve had worse reps
usual rotator cuff, etc.
push ups: 30, 30, 20, 20 ok
bench; 2 sets of 10 x 94, 1 set of 6 with 116 (did not feel great)
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 134
curls: 3 sets of 10 x 50
shoulder with grip bar: 10 x 70, 10 x 75 (tough), then a bizarre set where I lost power going up on rep 6 and so rested it on the safeties, switched grip, and got 5 more to finish the set.
That is kind of how it went; I found a way to get it done without reinjuring myself.
Overall, well, I am making changes with a still tender..but improving..shoulder. I’ll have a minor setback next week due to an unavoidable medical procedure (routine..once every 10 years)
The real question is to what to do about deadlifting. I wonder if my attempted 5 sets of 3 at 90 percent is too much to sustain…do I need to back off a bit and include some high handle work?
