Glorious February Day…

Last winter was not that bad from a weather standpoint. The time period itself had some challenges; some personal, some professional.
But this year’s winter: wow. Yeah, I know; it is bad for the planet. But the temperature isn’t bad and today saw a LOT of sunshine.

Workout: weights, 4 mile run, 4 mile walk.

Weights: the back is 100 percent better; pain is down and flexibility is up. But I am still weary.
rotator cuff, pull ups (5 sets of 10: very good)
bench press: 10 x 135, 5 x 185 (strong), 10 x 170 (tough)
incline press (really focused on keeping the hips planted) 10 x 135
military press: 7 x 50 dumbbell (standing…careful with the back), 10 x 40 standing, 10 x 160 (80 each arm) machine

Run: treadmill: 5 minute froggy starting at 5.2, then 2.5 minutes to 40; finished 4 miles in 42:14. (about 20 minutes for the second 2 miles)
Walk: 4 miles outside in the sunshine (Bradley Park).

Yeah, I enjoyed the outside part, but it just wasn’t the same nor as much fun as last week…can’t quite put the finger on it… 🙂

  1. I trudged around a few miles in the snow with my 13 wide herman survivors, then helped a homeless woman get herself and loaded rolling walker through the snowy 3 blocks from the soup kitchen to the homeless shelter. That was my walker number 3, which the VA had replaced because the wheels had started binding
