sunny day but..

Well, the snowflakes across the alley have started a loud party since about 8:30 am..??? Well, they had better be done by bed time or I’ll call the police on them. 🙂

I did get to the Riverplex a bit late so I chose to lift, cycle and walk (very sunny..though the water covered about half of the goose loop.)

weights: pt for rotator cuff, 5 sets of 10 pull ups, 10 x 135, 4 x 185, 7 x 170 bench, 7 x 160 decline, 10 x 135 incline, military: 10 x 50 standing, 2 sets of 10 x 45 (dumbbell), 3 sets of 10 x 50 rows.

Good news: there were three bespandexed women doing squat/butt exercises. That was at least entertaining. 🙂

Then to the cycle: 20 miles in 1:02:55 (32:25 for first 10). Sunny day so 5K or so of walking on the bike path. Pain: mild ..though when I stepped out of the bathtub “bad foot first”..EYOOOOW!!! It is not healed yet.

Now to the ISU vs. Bradley women’s game.

Get the Led Out..and the lead out too.

I got home later than usual; Ms. Vickie took me to a Led Zeppelin tribute band concert. It was fun. But I do have a few tasks to do this weekend and I want to work out this morning (some mixture of swimming, lifting and stationary cycling..2 of the 3 would be good)

The campus has a 5K but my foot is not in shape to do it. 3-4 more weeks…

Bradley Basketball (men) had their first “conference quaterfinal” victory since 2010, scoring on a rebound with 1.5 seconds left to beat nemesis Drake. Now, Bradley has defeated every Missouri Valley Conference team it has faced at least once, though it took 3 tries to get it done vs. Drake.

I listened to the game on the radio as I worked in my office.

Today the Bradley women’s team hosts Illinois State; Ms. Vickie *might* go to that with me (she is an Illinois State graduate).

Heel progress: oh-so-slightly sore,; my guess it is from the 4 mile walk yesterday.

We ate early last night; I took Ms. V. on a mini campus tour. This is outside my office.

At the concert…

Micheala got this one of me in our box.
