The Return of the Grymm

Recommended Posts

Didn't feel great today - non-specific back pain probably from too many hours in bed being unproductive, shoulders meh, knees meh.  But, needed to get a workout in so I started up with the expectation that I might have to trim some weight off.

 

First off, weighed in down another pound since Wednesday.  Friday was not good diet-wise, but I guess compliance otherwise has been pretty solid.

 

S: 5x45, 95, 135, 3x185, 235, 3x5x270 - The 235s were heavy, but I said what the hell and went for the next 5#.  And then the 270s weren't bad at all.

P: 5x45k, 95, 115, 3x5x135 - Finally got that one plate press.  These were definitely high effort, but whenever the ball stalled a bit, I was able to grind it out.  Might need some 1.25# plates.

D: 5x225, 5x295.  These were awful.  My form was just bad.  I'm not sure if the bar was off my shins or my hips were too low to start, but I felt like I pulled these all back.  285 was super easy.  Double overhead grip was still fine.  I can't really say in hindsight.

 

(3) softball games in (2) days this week - Tues/Wed.  Should be fun.

So far this week, contracted plague and played (3) softball games.  It was 93 degrees for all of them.  Recovering from plague.  No meaningful workouts aside from softball and diet is rubbish, but I'm hoping this is the last plague-like day.  That is all.

Phew, that was a busy week.  I basically abandoned the entirety of this challenge for the week, but there were some productive points.  Didn't lift, but did play (4) softball games.  Got plague, got over said plague.  Went to the Renaissance Faire in Tuxedo, NY.  That place is crazy.  I loved it, and every bar has Guinness.  Completed my (3) fantasy football drafts - pretty happy with the results.  In my last softball of the season last night, pulled a hamstring beating out a two-out infield single for 2 rbi in the first inning.  Played out the rest of the game hobbled, but it was workable as I play first.  Speed around the bases quite reduced.

 

The result, though, is I ate crap and drank Guinness all week and surprisingly didn't gain a pound.  I did a little planning, and while I did eat crap, I didn't really eat that much over plan.  Tonight is a lifting night, and I actually have time.  We'll see what's possible with the bad hamstring.  I might have to baby it a little, but I don't think it's too bad.
