Going downhill

Interestingly enough: I am not in that much pain; mostly tingles in my left leg and a false feeling of the need to urinate.

But the angst is there; happy I have a doctor’s appointment this Tuesday.

Walking to and from campus and up the stairs..somewhat uncomfortable.

Ability to lift, pull ups, push ups: no problems, no pain; barely a tingle

Workout: lots of PT, pull ups (5 sets of 10, 5 wide, 5 chins)

push ups: 40 sissy, 30 feet elevated, 15 deficit, 15 regular

The PT: two kinds of rotator cuff, prone knee raises, bird dog, dead bug, one leg glute raises, a knee lift from bridge, banded walks and of course, press ups, open book.

bench press: 10 x 145, 10 x 145, 7 x 155 (feet elevated)

curls: 3 sets of 10

light rows with trap bar (94 lbs) 3 sets of 10

high incline presses 10, 10, 8 with 103

So, I am not exactly an invalid but something is off and getting worse.

Oh well, what is the worst that can happen: no, not death, but a slow degeneration into who knows what.
But tomorrow: maybe return to the pool?
