Another “workout and basketball post”

Yes, I watched the Republican debate last night and talked about it on Facebook. But it was mostly “Obama sucks, Hillary will be just as bad and we need to spend more money on the military to beat ISIS which is coming to get us”. Fear sells with Republicans. But there was no Trump. Perhaps this was like the wildcard round of the Republican play-offs?

Workout notes: weights then swimming.
rotator cuff
pull ups: 15, 15, 10, 10 (great!)
bench press: 10 x 135, 5 x 185, 10 x 170 (good!)
military presses (dumbbell) 2 sets of 12 x 50 seated, 10 x 40 standing
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 50 dumbbell, 10 x 110 machine (4 sets total)
abs: 2 sets of 12 twist crunch, 2 sets of 10 yoga leg lifts, moving bridge, head stand.

swim: mundane. 500 free, 5 x 100 drill/swim with fins, 4 x (100 pull, 100 swim), 4 x 100 IM

Afterward I had “the glow” in my shoulders ..I wore a sweatshirt to help keep it for a while.
Now I am into the academic routine with grading, etc. I am still feeling out some research; one sort of “college math journal” type project and one “specialty” project.

Polls and election markets aren’t as reliable for state races as they are for national, and they sure aren’t that telling for something like a primary caucus. I honestly don’t know what to expect in Iowa on either side.


The bookies have Trump and Clinton as favorites in Iowa…but again, we shall see.
