That’s what it feels like

Short note: doing pull ups felt easier than it has in months. Then I weighed after my weight workout: 195. Ah. Probably artificially low but what the hell.

easy walk afterward in chilly but lovely conditions.

usual pt, pull ups 15-15-10-10, bench: 10 x 135, 5 x 175, 7 x 170 (weak), military: 10 x 50, 10 x 45 standing, 10 x 180 machine, rows: 3 sets of 10 x 200 Hammer.
usual abs; headstand was easier and plank (2:30) was hard. I really didn’t want to do it.

Baseball Sunday!

Ok, I did workout (part of it with a friend) and I did some grading (yuck) but I also caught a couple of ball games:

Noon: Bradley won 10-0 over Robert Morris-Springfield. RMU did play a bit better this time; it was 5-0 after 3 and then it settled some; BU needed the bottom of the 7’th to get to 10-0, at which point the game was called by the “mercy” rule.

The 5 pm game saw the Chiefs finish their second series sweep of Wisconsin 6-3. Initially, the pitchers dominated and the Timberrattlers actually lead 2-1 after the top of the 7’th. But the Chiefs exploded on a relief pitcher in the bottom of the 7’th, going up to 10 hits and getting 5 runs in the inning.

This game also saw a crazy play where, with runners on 2’nd and 3’rd, a ground ball was fielded by the shortstop who threw to second, who threw to first in time for the out..but there was no forceout available at second. One run scored and one runner moved to 3’rd, though this cost the Chiefs only 1 run..and made it 2 outs (and put the lead at 6-3).

As far as Wisconsin: they had a rough 9 days, getting swept by the Chiefs on two weekend series and getting swept by Kane County in the 3 game set they played in Peoria due to their being snowed out at home, but still being in Peoria. They are now 3-13, but only 3-4 away from Peoria.

Oh yes, my wife gets home tomorrow. I had 5 baseball games this week, and 7 over the past 8 days. (3 Bradley, 3 Chiefs, 1 Timberrattler “home” game. )
