Back on track…maybe

Well, kind of down as I write this; dear friend has lung cancer. Don’t know the stage yet..probably 1. PT, then swim (2200 yards; usual 600 back/side warm up, 400 fins drill swim, then 1000 via 10 x 100, alternating pull and free..Jason got me today. 19:21 total. then 200 cool down.


The walk: kind of stiff..not great, not terrible in the first mile, started to improve mile 2, felt great mile 3, and no real soreness afterward. Wore my Beasts (clunky shoe). That might be the trick: slow down at first.

Sliding down a bit..then back up

This is about Monday October 17 and Wednesday, October 19

Monday: mixed my PT with 50 pull up reps, and 100 push up reps (sets of 20)

Walk was 2.17 at 13:33 but there was a warning sign: outside the (left) hip pain, while very mild, never got better. Commuter 1 mile walk was ok.

Then inside for bench presses: 10 x 134 then 4 sets of 4 x 160 (best in a while), 3 sets of curls, 2 sets of 10 x 94 high incline with the Swiss bar.

I’ve described Tuesday’s failure in another post.

Wednesday I did weights all at once; this time 5 sets of 20 push ups around PT and 10 sets of 5 singles with pull ups. Then bench: 10 x 134, 3 sets of 5 x 155 (went ok), 3 sets of curls, 3 sets of 10 x 94 high incline.

1 mile commuter walk to work, 1 mile back home for lunch. These went better, though I was tired at the end of the day. A stretch with a slight twist to the right seems to help.
