Super slow at work today.
They are saying we got 6” of rain this week. I am not complaining. August usually smells like rotting death here, so 6” of rain is a welcome relief. The trail I ran on the other day is currently ~5-10’ underwater. Always seems strange, but it’s not that unusual. It happens a few times every year. I’m sure we will have tons of drainage complaints next week. <fun times>
Stairmonster/bike combo. I turned down the speed some on the stairmonster, but I didn’t quit. That’s a win. I tried to tell myself that 110 steps/min is still pretty quick. The bike, I bumped the average level up a hair, but the speed was down a hair from earlier this week. I’ll still take that too. And my weight workout was tough, but good. Last time for the phase 2 bulk back (video), and I got in all my pull-ups without breaking.
It’s hard cuz you do pull-overs first and there’s no rest. So it’s 15 DB pullovers (40lb), 10 pull-ups, 12 DB pull-overs (45#), 10 pull-ups, 8 (50#)/8(45#) pull-overs, 10 pull-ups without only enough rest to get a couple of breaths in. I confess some of the pull-ups were ugly, but I figure if I can heave this old aging body of mine over the bar at all, I’m doing pretty well.
One more phase 2 workout, and I’ll move on to phase 3…
DS2’s senior pics came in today. <sniff> He starts school next week and I drug out the excess school supplies from years past. I love buying school supplies and it shows.
someday I will be donating tons of binders, pencils, and index cards. The only thing I need to buy is a composition notebook.
