Well, I decided to see if I can swim at the Y tomorrow.

Today: PT, 1 set of 10 pull ups, walk 1. I talked myself out of doing 2 at once.

Then 3 more sets of 10, 2 sets of 5 (one chin, one wide) and more PT

Walk 2: not as fast as yesterday; 32 seconds slower in fact, but still painless. Made myself hold back.

Push ups: 3 sets of 30 incline, 10 declined (steps)

shoulder: 7, 10, 10 x 105 Swiss bar (did these first) superset with 10 x 50 curls (3 sets)

bench: 3 sets of 5 x 155

deadlift: 10 x 134, 10 x 184 low, 10 x 260 high (8 inch). Happier with my technique. Felt it in the butt and legs, in a good way.

Back appointment in less than a week; we will see. My guess is that we’ll do injections round 2.

I honestly think that my abs and glutes are stronger.
