Off to a #workout. Didn't plan to do one today, but I'll take the rest of the week off to travel so idk.

Today's Workout:

Overhead Press: worked up to a set of 8 @ 135lbs. Aiming for an RPE 8/RIR 2, probably more like RPE 7.5/RIR 3.
Push Press: worked up to a set of 6 @ 175lbs at RPE 8, then 4x3 @ 135lbs EMOM.
Close grip bench/Pendlay Rows (superset): 2x12 @ 135lbs. These were exhausting!

I have video but they're too large to post now. Here's a photo of the dog instead.

I also need to write a reference for the terms/acronyms I use! I'll do that one of these days.

Started my first cycle of the new #weightlifting program tonight. It's outlined here: blog.pseudoramble.com/workout-

Squats: worked up to a set of 8 @ 245lbs
Rack pull: worked up to a set of 6 @ 285lbs, followed by 4 sets @ 225lbs, every minute on the minute.
Split squats: 1x5, 1x7, 1x8
Farmer's Carry: 3x50lbs each hand for 60ft.

Trying to do the carries in the dark is a real pain! Also the split squats were new to me, so pretty rough, but they feel like they will be useful!

Lunchtime workout

Jiu-Jitsu drills and 2 rolls.

My knee hurts a bit still, but I'm starting to add some rolling and see how it goes. Seemed pretty OK today.

I registered for my first ever competition on November 12!

Managed to get 10k steps today. That's pretty good for me. Additional to two short bike rides and 1h #workout. I almost took a nap after training too.

Just used the #watchOS 9 running app on my #AppleWatch to track today’s #training . I like it enough to test more complex trainings as well (intervall for example)… #running #tracking

Apple Harvest 5k done today. Given that I actually slept the night before, I felt good today. Managed to run probably 2.5 of the 3.1 miles, the first 2 miles were nonstop too!

Again, very weird from where my running times and abilities have been in the past, but I'm happy!

Another St. George Marathon in the books! Unfortunately, I didn't BQ, coming in with 3:25:24 as the official time.

But that's okay! I had massive PRs all across the board and aside from tired legs and a rock in my shoe, nothing went sideways.

More training, here we come.
