Calendar from LIFTIUM. Love this little app!
2 weeks of mostly white space owing to a back spasm…but back at it now. Exceptionally low weight, but hopefully can get to 135# squat in a week and then fight for the next 20# back.
It’s hard to lose traction as I fall SO far back. 😦
But I gave a lot of fight in me …or at least am developing it, so it’s not a rush.
Perhaps compassion, to myself, is just another version of restraint to learn.
lower back …. ugh. And I hardly did anything. Just the de-rack and PING…
20 minutes trying to grind out my first (unassisted) pull-up. I achieved…. a very sore arm, and no chin up.
oh my poor, poor boob. it took a serious hit.
A guy had what appeared to be a heart attack at the gym today. It was a crazy scene; CPR, defibrillator and the whole 9 yards. I don’t know what to say,…. this blog has been a diary to log my progress and cheer myself on. I don’t feel cheery. Life is so short, and I am (arguably) more than 1/2 way through it. Suddenly, I feel fragile.
NikeFuel showing my slowdown ….
Well, 2 days I just didn’t even bother wearing it. The rest is me geared down. But a week and a bit of physio (I figured, why mess around?) I actually feel better than ever.
This guy was amazing: PHYSIO It’s been a few days since my last session, and I still feel great. Even when I went to that one…. I wasn’t feeling like anything was sideways.
I still probably lost a month of progress on deadlifts and squats, which has me less than stoked. I am already a late bloomer and a slow progresser ….but I try to think that it’s good for my character.
