10/4 lift box squat 5x275 towel bench 5x245
The most dreaded week of lifting has returned. We are back on five sets of five reps, which is always demoralizing. I did my snatches 5x65 and 3x100 again. I definitely need to do four or five reps with the 100 next week. Pull-ups were with 40lbs, our second week at the new weight. My back feels a little funny from being hunched over on the spinning bike over the weekend. I made sure to look at the ceiling on the squats and not allow my back to round when I would sit on the box. I have started doing the 6 holes showing on the box for all my sets. The bench was really hard, as we did 225 for the 4th set and that was a struggle. Somehow I still managed to gut out all 5 reps using 245 without any help.
Looks like I might be doing the 8 mile Uwharrie Mountain Run in February. The +1 has asked me about it and today I brought it up with my lifting partner and he expressed an interest in joining me on the 8. This is probably for the best, so the +1 doesn't feel like she's leaving me behind if she does the 20 miler (which she should).
My foot is still bothering me, but it's much better than last week. I plan to do ninjafit tomorrow and take it easy on the foot otherwise. I would see about spinning again, but my old posterolateral corner injury is bothering me after Sunday. So I've been babying both legs today. If it clears up by Thursday, I might try and get in a spinning session. I'm still a long way from trying to run again, but at least things are getting better instead of worse!
