Life is harder when you are stupid.

No, this wasn’t a great walk, but I was already in a bad mood as my deadlift workout:

10 x 144, 10 x 184 (0k, not that bad..)

started my usual 10 x 234 set and quit due to a sharp burning pain in the left side of my torso, below my ribs. So ONE rep was it. (yeah, pretty easy)

So, I stretched a bit (not enough), limped my walk (first segment); second segment: got cheated by my Garmin (should have been at least 0.65 miles) then the final one was ok; quit when I was supposed to.

Then upon showering..caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror:

I think I gave this to myself during Wednesday’s workout when I tightened my weight belt too much and did 10 x 300 with 8 inch handles. It should clear up in a month or so..until the bruise/touch pain is gone, keep the deadlift weight light enough to not use a belt. 184 seems ok; this Wednesday we’ll see how the two warm up sets go.
