Back: well, ok; minor pain comes and goes; down to 1 naproxen, twice a day. It is tolerable.
Workout: weights/pt first; usual pull ups (some with knees forward), push ups (4 sets of 25 flat..challenging) full PT, then bench: 10 x 134, 3 sets of 5 x 154, curls: 3 sets of 10. high incline: 1 set of 10 x 94 trying for more ROM.
Walk: start slow, pick it up. Commuter walk. That is about it. Voted. Long line: 20 or so when I got there, along with 3 with poll workers and 8 actively voting.
Today: weight 197.6 before swimming, 196.5 after. The swim itself: usual 600 of side/back, 400 of swim drill/swim with fins, then a very lame 250 swim, 250 pull in 9:40. I gave up; did 100 side, 100 back, 100 fins then finished alternating pulls, swim ..enough to get to 2200.
I need to swim more, and now without those morning doctor’s appointments, I might get to.
Then came the walk; tightness on the outside of the hip prior..so I went out at 15:40..then picked it up to 14:20 and then 13:30. That is the way to do it, I think.
I have a few days to get to the 100 mile for the month mark, something I have NOT done in about 2 years. This stabbing glute pain was vicious ..a very tough opponent to overcome, or at least keep at bay.
