Back topics

My back has gotten quite a bit better. Still, I cannot neglect it; it does stiffen up when I sit for too long.

Workouts:

Yesterday: I ran on the treadmill. 5 minutes each (incline 0.5): 5.2, 5.3, 5.4, 5.5. Then 2 x (6.7 for 2:30, 5.5 for 2:30), 2 x (6.8 for 2:30, 5.5 for 2:30), 4 x (6.9 at 2:30, 5.6 at 2:30); 1:01:04 for 6 miles, 1:03:20 for 6.21 miles (10K) The back was slightly stiff.

Evening: exercise class with Ms. Vickie (teacher) and Jennifer

Today: I slept in a bit (to 5:30) and went to work early; after 9-10 class I lifted and walked 17 laps (just over 2 miles) in 27:31 (13:13, 12:40 were my 8 lap splits)

Lifting: rotator cuff
pull ups: 5 sets of 10…easy today.
bench: very gingerly: 10 x 135, 5 x 185 (reasonably flat back), 6 x 170 (did not want to push my luck)
incline: 10 x 135 (very careful)
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 110 machine.
military presses: 6 x 85 barbell, 2 sets of 10 with the machine..very careful

Bodyweight: 192.6 afterward; the lightest I’ve been in a while.
