chilling out

Workout notes: swim, weights, yoga.
Swim: 500 free, 1000 of: 50 drill (fins), 150 free (hard). Then 3 x 50 free (47-48 each), 50 back. 100 free in 1:41, 50 side, 2 x 25 fly (fins)
The swim felt fine.

Weights: pull ups (4 sets of 10), rotator cuff
Bench press: 10 x 135, 3 x 185, 7 x 170
10 pull ups (to get to 5 sets of 10)
military: 3 sets of 10 x 40 dumbbell
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 (machine)

Yoga: sun salutes, leg lifts, abs, head stand, plow, shoulder stand.

Note: there was some young woman running at what appeared to be a fast pace on the treadmill She was running at 7:13 mpm on the treadmill, and 7:2x on the track.
Yes, that is way faster than I can do now, but even at 40 I ran some half marathons at roughly that pace, though I didn’t look as good as she did.

I’ll admit it; the demise in my physical abilities is bothering me. But my choice: accept it, or quit doing sports. And I won’t do the latter.

Republican Debate Who knows. The establishment candidates are doing so poorly right now. But we are still 2 months (plus) away from the first primary election.
