A few days of contrasts…

I had traveled to Alabama to give a math talk; it was a welcome diversion from, well, the day to day grind of teaching a couple of large sections of a service course. I got back home in time to catch most of Bradley’s 6-3 win over Indiana State in baseball (picked it up in the bottom of the 4’th; saw every run including a loaded bases clearing double. Then I went to a memorial service for an old friend.

I said a “pre goodbye” to a dear friend to is retiring and leaving the area. Then tomorrow, I get to see another dear friend who had left but returns from time to time. All the while, a trail ultra marathon is going on; one that I was once able to do (50 and 100 miles, two times each). My PF problems precluded me from doing one of the shorter distances.

I had 70 F degree temperatures in Alabama; it hit 18 F this morning in Peoria. Oh well.

Workout this morning: weights, then 57:40 for 5 treadmill miles: did “5 minute froggy” for 35 minutes (5.1) then walked to 4 miles (47:10) then jogged it in (10:30 final mile). Left heel: not perfect, but ok.

Weights: protect the left shoulder pull ups (5 sets of 10: ok), military presses: 10 x 50, 10 x 45, 20 x 40 (standing), one armed rows with 60 (3 sets of 10), shoulder not ready for incline or bench, so did light dumbbell bench presses: 10 x 30, 10 x 40, focus on full range.
