Workout catch up part N+

I forgot to log my Thursday weight workout so here goes: about 2 hours plus of PT and weights/strength.

Pull ups: 5 sets of 10 (some sloppy), 2 sets of 5 wide

push ups: 20 incline, 30 decline, 30 incline, 20 regular (went well)

Swiss bar bench: 10 x 134, 4 x 156, 6 x 145, 6 x 145

curls: 3 sets of 10 x 50

trap bar deads (all low) 10 x 134, 10 x 184, 10 x 184 (being “squatty”)

Felt good afterward.

Today: ok…walking has been rough this week; it seems as if symptoms come on about 1.3-1.4 miles; to be honest, whether I make it to 2 depends on if I can get the right degree of ab tightening and do some mini back stretches on the fly. Yes, this is better than the old 0.8 miles but …adding .5-.6 miles in a month’s time? Gads.

I wonder if it is past time to put the ego on hold and just stop when symptoms appear.

So far, this week looks like:

Monday: 1.11, 1.0, Wednesday: 2.02, Friday 1.58, Saturday 2.03 (really 1.8)

But really, the symptom free distance is 1.3-1.5 on a good day, 1.1 on a bad one.

Today’s workout:

Swim: ok, that went ok.

800 of 50 side, 50 choice (choice being 50 breast or 50 back)

200 of 25 front kick (no fins), 25 free

200 in 3:38 (felt fine, if slow)

100 back

350 fins, consisting of 200 free kick (SFS, font, side), 100 dolphin kick, 50 free with fins)

1650 yards in all.

Then I drove home as people showed up at the playground and were on the path.

PT (second round…mini round in the morning)

A very rough 1.8 mile walk..and because I was near Bradley Hall, I did a 20 second stretch (if that) and walked it home.
