(per twitter) session 69: no treadmill, 3x cybex circuit, and I think I figured out how to dodge my rotator cuff issue on overhead press \o/ leg curl: 12x+ 70# leg press: 12x 210# is do-able fresh but by set 3 I backed off to 190 overhead press: 10-12x 70# arm curl: 8-10x 50# ab crunch: 12x 110# if I hang all over the armrest, 16x+ 70# arm extension: 10-12x 70# chest press: 12x+ 90# After reviewing a video of exercise for rotator cuff injury physical therapy, I had a much clearer idea of what m...

Woke ~11AM, probably because on a Sunday morning the neighborhood is a great deal quieter traffic-wise. Yesterday I determined that Walmart's "George" brand sizing of men's white button-down oxford shirts would suggest a size medium, but in Target's Merona I'd be better off with large, so of course Walmart had only L and Target only M. Not that I was going to pay $22 at Target for a $12 Walmart shirt. Anyway, I ran out to Walmart again today ~3:30 to see if their stock had changed. It hadn't. Apparently... (...more)

(per twitter) session 68: 2 sets on the cybex circuit (except overhead press which is hurting my shoulder again), + 3.3mi / 38m40s went to bed at a reasonable hour, woke a while between 4AM-5AM? rolled out of bed ~10:30, didn't really get my caffeine on until 11:30ish. Got out and about ~1:20 - Publecchs for a supply of Powerbars, Dunkins for coffee round 2, Lolmart to see if they had restocked white long-sleeve oxford button-down shirts in size medium (they hadn't), Target to price comparable shirts ($...

Last time I was in the gym was Monday, Tuesday I felt "springy", then Tuesday evening I got fixed up with in-house cable Internet and I've been luxuriating in that all week, after a month of leeching open access at mccafés and nakamals. Also, Wednesday night I must have slept funny because my neck and shoulders were stiff Thursday and still a little sore today. Creaky or not, session 67: 2 sets on the cybex circuit and 3.3mi / 44m40s. leg curl: 12-15x 70# leg press: 15-16x 210# overhead press: 12-1... (...more)

Woke ~7:15 feeling springy after last night's workout, session 66: 1x machine circuit targeting higher weight settings, and 3.3mi / 39m38s. 1mi at 6.0mph, cooldown, 1mi at 5.5ish, and then (per twitter) my brain overheated and I don't remember. I know I mixed in a half-lap at 8.0mph, and I vaguely remember that as I started the final lap, I figured I might beat the 40-minute mark, so I stepped up to a "speed" pace, probably somewhere in the 6.0-7.0mph range. Afterward I swung by Target to round out my g... (...more)
