Warm-up

Two rounds of:

- Pistols (5/5)

- One Arm Push-ups (5/5)

Rounds in 10 minutes of:

- 2 Pull-ups

- 5 Swings of each arm with 15 kg. plate

12 rounds

Lying External Rotation, 5 kg. plate, (10/10)*2

NB. Pistol balance is getting better. I've been neglecting the shoulder rotations since there are no dumbbells in the fitness center and it shows, so I was motivated to improvise with the plate.

05:10

Warm-up

Two rounds of:

- Pistols (5/5)

- One Arm Push-ups (5/5)

08:45

Rode a bicycle around the Korat Zoo for a couple of hours. It's very nice, with large habitats for the animals, but that spreads things out a lot.

16:45

Warm-up

As many power clean and press as possible with a pair of 20 kg. dumbbells in 10 minutes. (34)

Swim 25 yds. * 10 on the minute.

NB. Pistols to desk chair (balance improving) and One Arm Push-ups to desk (getting to within two inches of the desk on some reps. Left shoulder still a little weak from last Fall's injury, failing to complete the press on a couple of reps.

04:30

Warm-up

Two rounds of:

- Pistols (5/5)

- One Arm Push-ups (5/5)

One Arm Press, 20 kg. Dumbbell (0/1)

Press, pair of 20 kg. Dumbbells * 1

Thrusters, pair of 20 kg. Dumbbells, 10 minutes, 100 reps

NB. First time to manage chest to desk on One Arm Push-ups. These have been harder than I expected. Left shoulder is still a bit weak, failing on the One Arm Press, though subsequently pressing with both dumbbells at once wasn't that difficult. This is consistent with the theory that recruiting muscles that don't directly contribute to a movement can improve the recruitment of the working muscle fibers. Left shoulder is toast.
