Omicron arrives

Current positivity rate: 11.2 percent.

For contrast:

The silver lining is that omicron, while more contagious, appears to be less harmful, at least to vaccinated people. But remember it is summer in Africa. And in Denmark, the “hospitalization per cases” ratio might be lower, if the cases are high enough, hospitalizations might be up.

So what am *I* doing: masking indoors, doing most of my social stuff outdoors or in big arenas (with mask), shaving my beard for a better mask fit, and not spending unnecessary time indoors especially in places that don’t have enforced mask mandates.

No eating indoors with strangers. And even in the gym: I do a lightly attended morning yoga class and then go outside or go home (treadmill and bike).

Workout notes pull ups went ok; 2 sets of 5, 4 sets of 10 (including 1 set of 10 chins), 2 sets of 5 (wide, chin)

push ups: 30 sissy, 30 feet elevated, 2 sets of 10 flat deficit, 1 set of 20 flat. After my second set of 30, a visitor of my neighbor gave me the “are you ok” look.

Then downstairs for deads: 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 10 x 224, 10 x 240, none were that hard.

29:30 for 1o miles on the bike; then stretching.

Glute DOES feel better than yesterday; a lot better.
