Yesterday: pull ups: 30 singles (on 10 seconds), 2 sets of 10, then 2 sets of chins (5 each), pushups, (25, 25, 20), curls, rows, overhead presses (3 sets of 10; dumbbells worked better for the overhead, included 30 min bike
Today: 2 mile walk with Lynn (Stretch at 1, 1.5), yoga with Ms. V and 15 fake miles (with 5 at higher resistance), rehab, last PT for a while.
Walk to work: hurt a bit.
Given a 50 percent vaccination rate: 70.2 percent efficacy vs. hospitalization, 87.8 percent vs. ICU, 90 percent ventilator.
Note the risk maps from August 22 to today…9 days.
Double header Chiefs game on Thursday (lost 3-2, won 3-1) and Illinois football vs Nebraska today (won 30-22). Yes, I masked up both times, though I took off my mask for most of the Chiefs game due to being away from people. I wore it in the concourses and when people got near us.
Today: single mask to the game and doubled up when the crowd started to fill in: sports mask on the lower layer; block I mask outer.
Chiefs: though both games were good, the Chiefs looked sharp in game 2. In game 1, a player who used to play for Dallas Baptist belted a home run into the left field berm.
Barbara stayed with us for most of game 1; Tracy was a trooper and sat through both.
Illinois 30 Nebraska 22.
I went with Harry to this game (my tire went flat when I drove it over a nail..a neighbor’s fence post fell on my driveway…grrr…
The game started with a punt exchange and then Nebraska made an error on a punt which lead to a safety.
Illinois got a long run but sacks forced them to a long field goal attempt, which failed.
Second quarter: Nebraska hit a big pass and later punched it in; missed the extra point to lead 6-2.
Another drive, and a field goal made it 9-2. But then came a big turn around: the Illini backup quarterback was intercepted. But the play was called back for “roughing the passer”..and the Illini scored on that drive to tie the game.
Time remained in the half…but then a sack/fumble “scoop and score” gave the Illini a 16-9 lead at the half.
Then came the 3’rd quarter.
Opening drive: ate up 8:30 (mostly on runs) and gave the Illini a 23-9 lead. Another stop, another drive and it was 30-9 with the 3’rd almost gone.
Ooops; 75 yard quarterback keeper for Nebraska made it 30-16.
The various drives stalled and Nebraska finally converted with 2:41 to cut it to 30-22..they missed their second extra point of the day.
They got the ball back with 1:11 left but no time outs..and eventually failed on downs.
I do wonder..maybe it would have been a better move to go upstairs, even in the heat?
Thursday: yoga class, 2 mile walk with Lynn; stretch after 1 mile, then again at 1.7. Slightly too far; then 32 minutes on the bike and rehab.
Friday: lots of rehab; pull ups (included 3 sets of 10, 4 of 5, 10 singles), push ups 20, 25, 25 (two sets with feet elevated), curls (3 sets of 10), rows (3 sets of 10) and some shoulder presses; played with bench, dumbbells (2 sets of 10)
Saturday: walk 1.2 (stretch after .7, not lose enough), 30 minute bike, some rehab and walking to and from the game; almost 1 mile each way.
I have some ache this evening; I need to stretch and roll again.
Last night; slight shoulder pain; probably due to screwing in the weight plate rods.
On the verge of getting going…I’ll have to make some progress on my two papers. This will require some weekend/evening work, I think.
I used the fact that our area is 50 percent vaccinated to do some efficacy calculation: efficacy with respect to hospitalization is about 77 percent..not taking into account risk groups.
So, no, “breakthrough hospitalizations are not “rare.”
Workout notes: kind of sore glutes so no cycling or walking today; (though forgetting my keys did help me make the campus trip and 4 flights a 3’rd time)
Pull ups (60 reps, 3 sets of 10, 1 set of 10 singles, 4 sets of 5), push ups (25, 25, 20 with legs up), rehab, curls (3 sets of 10), rows (3 sets of 10..lighter weight), seated presses (10 x 44, 8 x 66..pathetic)
I have not eaten in restaurants …but I’ve done outdoor stuff ..and I mask up when I am close to people. I tend to keep to myself (little talking directly to people) so that helps…and yes, I have game masks.
And my course prep includes video, recording and online stuff.
Workout notes: Ok, this went from about 7:35 to 10:35. Deadlifts ate up about 50 minutes, the walk about 20 (see the above) and my cycle 33 (10 fake miles). The rest was rehab; stretching, shoulder, banded walks, chest taps, spinal balance, rolling my butt on a baseball, blah, blah, blah.
So the deadlift went something like this:
10 x 134, 10 x 184 warm up.
Working set: 10 x 224, then “on the 3”: 3, 3, 3, 3, 5 x 255 (went VERY well);
I then took 7-8 minutes to switch to my new trap bar..it is a MONSTER.
High handles (7.5 as opposed to 4 inches..makes a difference) 3 x 260, 3 x 260, 3 x 280, 3 x 300…all “on the 3” No back issues at all.
I am using the “high handle” as a type of squat..hips lower.
Then the walk, then the bike.
I was worried that partially cleaning out my basement (5 large contractor bags of trash and an old, rotted reclining chair)
Note: some of the stuff (1 inch plates, shorter bar, portable bench and squat racks) are for outdoor use..when my shoulder is ready.
