Turning the corner

Physically, have little to complain about at the moment. Pain has really decreases and I am thinking about getting off the Naproxen again. Very low pain day (not non-existent but low) and the walk went very well.

Ok, my workout took too long again; kind of lazy at times. Start at 7:10 and I finished about 10:25; should have started 1 hour earlier. It was “end of the world” Tuesday (when all the sirens are tested..first Tuesday of the month at 10 am)

Roughly: 1 hour for the PT/pull up/push up combination
50 minutes for weights
1:10 for the walk with pre and post stretching.

The walk (came at the end) was not the fastest but went very well, in terms of pain. I had the dog park hill and the hill out of Bradley Park and had no 14 minute miles.

The pull ups: the usual 2 sets of 10 singles in the crunch position. 2 sets of 5 single chins. Then I did the following: 8, 6, 4-4 then 4 more after rest. 56 total reps. Then 30 incline push ups, 2 sets of 10 chest taps (and open book, etc), 2 sets of 20 flat push ups.

Downstairs: bench: 5 x 134, 3 sets of 4 x 165, 1 set of 3 x 165 (failed on rep 4), then 5 x 134, starting with a pin press and using a pause.

Deadlifts: 10 x 134, 10 x 184 focusing on form (slightly disappointed with the 184; I thought I was more upright than that)

High incline: 10 x 44 for mobility then 3 sets of 8 x 94 (challenging; touch every rep)

curls: 10 x 44 Swiss bar (empty), 7-7-7 (killed me, in a good way)
