Back saga: see the surgeon on June 7. Basically: mild nerve root impingement at L5-S1; injections might work. Still..bummer. Hope more PT (on my own) and modification of my activities will do the trick, but we’ll see.
Baseball: I saw Bradley play Illinois. BU took a 3-1 lead but fell apart in the middle innings (lots of walks) and lost 9-6. It was fun being with Lynn though.
Wednesday: swim, PT in the park, 1.28 walk.
Swim: 400 of 25 free, 25 back, 25 breast, 25 free
200 swim/kick drills
8 x 50 on the 1:10 51-53 each
100 dolphin kick with fins
Then the PT, then the walk. The walk was “oh so close” to being pain free. Not quite.
Then today: indoor PT, outdoor PT with pull ups and push ups:
pull ups: 4 sets of 10, 2 sets of 5 wide, 6 and 5 chins
push ups: 40 sissy, 30 feet elevated, 20 deficit, 10 deficit.
indoors; back friendly 10 x 136, 10 x 147, 8 x 152 bench press
curls: 3 sets of 10
high incline: didn’t quite like how the leg/butt felt with straining with 10 x 103, so retreated to 10 x 88 third set, which felt very good.
shown: mundane lumbar PT…this is a glute burner.
