Fri Mar 18
No workout. Bunch of walking

Sat Mar 19
Holyoke St. Patrick's day road race. Just shy of 10k @ 45:41. Pretty happy with this as I've done very little recent distance running training, just sprints.

Sun Mar 20
BP (Nautilus): up to 310x5x3, 250x7

Alternating Chins + 15# and BW Dips:
Chins+15#: 7,5,4
Dips: 12,7,7
Not much rest between sets

Eliptical 15 mins.

Not a ton in the tank. Took it kind of easy.

Later - Push-ups: 40, 35

Mon Mar 21
Rest

Tue Mar 22
Still felt sore and run down today. Went to the gym against my better judgment. Not a great workout.

DB Snatch (R/L): Up to 110x2x2, 100x4,4

Curlz: 105x6,6,5

Some intervals on treadmill.

Think I may be a little calorie-deprived. Did a lot of eating post workout.

Wed Mar 23

Rest. Run down - did lots of eating.

Thu Mar 24
Felt pretty low-energy for about first 1/2 of workout and then felt great when I busted through it.

Press: up to 150x5x3. That was tough. 125x6

DB Rows (R/L): Up to 130#x6,7,7, 120x6
Still making progress here

DL: up to 345x2, 385x2 (PR weight), 345x4
Didn't have a lot of time to rest on the DL sets. Grip was double OH for all sets w/ liquid chalk. Stuff is great!

Fri - Sun, Mar 25-27
Rest.

Mon Mar 28
Decline bench. This is the only barbell bench I seem to be able to do right now that doesn't mess with the shoulders, so I think I'm committing to this one.
Worked up to 225x5, 235x5, 240x5
Felt good. Will work on 245x5x3 next time but that might be a bit aggressive. We'll see how it goes.

Tried some incline bench work after but my shoulders were having none of it. Just not a good angle for me.

Alternated Dips / Chins:
Dips: 10-10-10
Chins: 8-7-5
Chins weak tonight oddly enough after the bench work.

Treadmill: A bit of walking followed by a 6 min mile, which nearly killed me. Then some more walking to cool down.

Tried push-ups at the end but chest / arms were shot.

Bunch of B12 pre-workout so was feeling particularly beastly today.

FS: up to 205x5x2, 210x5 (PR!) (I think the 205 sets were a PR too!)

DB Rows (R/L): up to 130#x7x3 (rep PR!), 120x5

Some eliptical and light running, and random pull-ups to cool down.
