Easy 10 mile road ride

-slosh pipe 100 yard walk/zercher - (the neighbors must think this is the craziest thing ever but its fun.)
-20 - 50lb gravelbag clean to shoulders (also fun, got backpack at army surplus store, home depot didn't have sand so I got a bag of gravel instead)

-slosh pipe 100 yard walk/zercher
-20 -50lb gravelbag swings

-slosh pipe 100 yard walk/zercher
- 20 -50lb gravelbag high-pulls

seems more like play than working out, but I can feel it now.

Didn't much feel like going to the gym today, but I did. I am still sore from DL's on Wednesday and my whole body feels stiff. I think maybe the gravelbag swings are responsible.

Squat:
200x3x5

Bench Press:
170x3x5 this weight was harder than I remembered from the last time I did it 9/3, but I completed all reps.

Pullups:
3x10 very difficult to finish last set

Front planks:
3x1:30

155x3x5

PC:
135x3x5 (Surgery related mobility problems in right wrist causing problems with catch. might stay at this weight for a while and see if flexibility will improve.)

Sunday - 9/28

Hard 15.7 miles @ Cle


Monday - 9/29

pulled something in right calf taking step up from garage. very strange, maybe I didn't stretch properly after ride yesterday. Feel very tired, and not well recovered, in general, from ride yesterday. Did not squat today because of calf pull.

Cable lat rows (really don't know what they are called)
80x2x10 (each side)

Press:
135x2x5 - barely made last rep, will push next set
Push Press:
135x1x5

Pullups:
3x5

Pushups:
2x20

Not very inspired today. In addition to being tired, I am feeling bored with the PP schedule I am on. I plan on picking up my bike miles by riding to work. I will keep my lifting schedule through 10/10, then begin doing CF WO's on Wednesdays.
