Bench felt good. Pull-ups not so much had to stop because my iPod jumped out of my pocked and was hanging by my earphone cable. Could have squeezed a few more, but definitely not my old PR of 33.

I didn't drown. So all in all, a good day.

Overhead Squat felt awesome. Haven't gone heavy on that since my injury. Could have gone higher, but didn't want to risk it. Death by Pull-ups was not so good. Haven't been doing kipping pull-ups until this week and in the tenth round I think I pulled something in my left bicep... Just a minor inconvenience but I decided to call it quits in the 12 round to be safe. Bicep was bothering me during presses as well. Went home, iced it and it hasn't bothered me since.

The climbing seemed to bother my back a bit...



Saturday

Swim (50m Outdoor Pool): 2x150m Front Crawl; 4:05, 4:27

Back back to good after some icing. This is a PR for my front crawl without stopping, which was really all I was shooting for, not having to stop.

Indoor Climbing: ~an hour and half

First time trying this. Was fun. Will definitely try this again soon. Back did complain a bit after falling a few times. Got used to it and felt great.
