Running on empty (not a bad thing)

I’ve been tired lately, but not really run down. My sleep has been, well, too short. But I wake up..and can’t go back to sleep. I probably need to ignore the internet late in the evening.

So, I slept in a bit and skipped weights and only swam: (weight: 186 prior to swimming; I feared I would be “Moby Dick” after this weekend’s indiscretions)
500 free, 500 drill/free with fins, 5 x (100 pull, 100 free), 4 x 50 fly/back with fins.

Ok, I know that I have to stay with lifting so I squeezed in a mini lifting workout over lunch. The gym wasn’t as crowded as I feared it would be:

rotator cuff
pull ups (strong) 15-15-10-10
incline bench press: 10 x 135, 9 x 150 (wanted 10, dammit!) 10 x 135
military: 2 sets of 10 x 40 standing, 10 x 200 machine (100 each arm)
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 machine
abs: twist crunches (2 sets of 12), yoga leg lifts (2 sets of 10), moving bridge, headstand (adding to the “eccentric professor” lore)

TMI: I’ve got something like a cold sore in my throat (tonsils) and have had it for a few days. I am recording this to see how it feels in a week or so. I don’t think that I am ill because workouts have been fine; about normal for me.
