I honestly feel better. I did catch a Bradley Baseball game last night (11-1 win) and got to talk to a mother of a Western Illinois outfielder at length.
Talk about sparse: there were perhaps 48 people at first pitch; maybe maxed at 70? 50 F, drizzle and this was a make up game.
The Sunday Chiefs game was better attended..and warmer..and it was great that the Chiefs won to stay over .500.
Oh, about my back: part of the improvement might be my not going up and down the damned steps all day..and part of it, I think, is my adjusting my weight exercises:
- Feet up on the bench press
- High incline rather than shoulder press
- No strain allowed on high incline
- Trap bar deadlift; only light weights with low handles; use less weight with 4 and 8 inch handles WITH a belt..getting the lumbar out of it.
And, in walking, doing one session and stopping before it gets too bad.
Swim: watch the shoulder..feeling pings from time to time.
500 of alternating 50 free, 50 side
1000 of alternating 50 drill with fins, 50 free
Weight: 202.5 best in a while
PT: a LOT of it; even used the bosu ball..did it indoors. Wore my mask, stuck to myself, etc.
Then a 1.28 mile walk; cut it short because I wanted to finish while I still felt good.
