Pretrip

Ok, now I am working both my left..well, not quite shoulder but pectoral? and my left foot. Hmmm…

weights: I modified it a bit; usual PT, pull ups (5 sets of 10, NO SWINGING), standing dumbbell military: 15 x 40, 10 x 45, 10 x 50 (all ok), rows (Hammer) 3 sets of 10 x 200. Then I used the Hammer incline press machine for two sets of 10 x 90 (45 on each side), striving for slow, full range reps. Yep.the soreness is there and while it isn’t debilitating, it is enough to keep me from straining in that motion.

Did the usual abs, headstand, 2:30 bent elbow plank.

run/walk: 3 minute froggy 5.1-5.3, then up..11:25 first mile, 8:41 second mile, walk 15-15:30, then jog the final mile at 5.2-5.3 going up 1-2-3 in incline (last .5 at 3) to finish 4 in 46:50. Foot: ached the most during the walking phase, not much at all during the run.

I am a mess. 🙂

Later: fly to Mobile, Alabama. Fly back on Friday. It is only a seminar talk, but I am a bit nervous/anxious/excited. This is only my second “invited” talk to a math department (last one was in 1993) and I really don’t want to lay an egg.

What is different is that this is a non-specialist audience so I have to explain what is obvious to specialists (those who have looked at this stuff for years) while not being insulting by giving an undergraduate level talk.
