Thursday (feeling better)

“If America could be, once again, a nation of self-reliant farmers, craftsmen, hunters, ranchers, and artists, then the rich would have little power to dominate others. Neither to serve nor to rule: That was the American dream.”

-Edward Abbey

Felt much better in the gymnasium today. I reckon a couple nights of 8 hours sleep can make a difference. I also took a walk with a shotgun yesterday morning and that usually helps to put things perpendicular.

 

A. and B. Pulling stuff: 45lb single. Felt good. Went to 53lb and lost it at my nose. 7 singles after. Feels like low numbers compared to the past, but I won’t complain. My shoulders didn’t feel like they were going to fall apart on the pulls. I stretched w/pvc (over and back/around the world) and things are still touchy. Definitely an amount of pain in certain points through the movement, but it’s like a 2 or a 3. Just to let me know they aren’t totally well.

C. Rolled through it nice and easy. I think I walked too far for the farmers carries, oh well. 20 minutes of constant movement at just faster than conversation pace. Chatted with Ali-gator about things and life on the carries and that felt good. Pushed a little more effort on the AD and focused on not putting things down on the carries. Fact: LeBron Jamesing the shit outta the chalk helps reduce arm fatigue.

Left the gymnasium feeling good. Like leaving the gymnasium should feel. Oh calf is still a bit sore, but much improved from Tuesday. Ali said to foam roll. I should listen.
