We got back to Peoria at about 10 am and I wanted to watch the Bears vs Texans on TV …so I split my workout.
First, full PT plus a slow 5K walk (14:36 pace, mostly on broken/cracked sidewalk; part of the reason is my legs were heavy from 3.5 miles of tour walking and 5 miles of workout walking the previous day, plus COVID/flu shots on Friday.
After the game (Bears and Colts both won!) I did my deadlifts:
10 x 134, 10 x 184 low
10 x 250 4 inch 10 x 280 8 inch
It was all good..no pain at all. Time to step up the weight by 5 lb.
The skinny: no in person game, but my wife treated me to a walking “ghost of Lincoln” tour, which was about 2.5 miles (to and from the hotel…plus close a mile getting our dinner), so it was a lot of standing and walking.
And the back/glute held up! Yeah, I know..no big deal normally, but in late spring, I could have NOT done this, at least without a lot of pain.
I did feel tightness and stiffness at times, but not much real pain, and it was not debilitating or even limp producing.
