## Getting the mix right

It is getting to the point where I need to time my workouts to see how they fit in for the academic year. Tomorrow, I’ll try out my projected M, W, F morning workout.

Sadly, I am at the age where I need to “save something” so I don’t fall asleep during the workday! That’s the reality of age…if one is still working (as I am) one needs to hold back and conserve a bit.

Today: PT, (some different things, like hip hikes with psoas marches), weights, 2 mile walk.

Weights: what was different is that I used step stools for my feet and bench press.

pull ups: 4 sets of 10, 2 sets of 5 chins, 2 sets of 5 mixed. Note: rain.

push ups: 4 sets of 20 regular, 10 feet elevated (indoor), then 10-5-5 going down the steps. Learning.

Bench press: 5, 5, 6, 6 with 155

Deadlift (all low) 10 x 134, 184, 228 (last set: shoulders are a bit too far forward, though the barbell travels upward. Mobility issue?

High incline: 3 sets of 10 x 94

curls: 3 sets of 10 with 50.

Then the walk…I kind of got uncomfortable (15:15 mile 1) but adjusting the back as I walked..it never got worse..even better at times. 14:26 second mile.
