Decline push-ups, 20-25 reps
DB OHP: 45 lb for ? reps
Hours of swing dancing on Saturday night.
Long hours of thesis writing. Due in two weeks. Wedding: 18 days.
as awful as it feels to be out of shape, I keep telling myself I only have 38 days to go. Working myself to the edge of insanity (not quite) to get this thesis submitted for review before the wedding day and ensuing honeymoon. I’ll have all the time in the world for fitness once I finish this M.Sc.
So busy, so stressed, but also feeling pretty awesome about life. Less so about fitness.
Chin ups: 5
These are coming back slow after that stupid injury. Didn’t push myself even a bit.
"barbell" Curls: 20x44.5 21x44.5
Don’t want to hear it. I’m doing curls because it’s better than not lifting. And who hasn’t admired big arms?
DB squats: 20x44.5 30x44.5
got my heart rate up, but not much else.
Push ups: 10 20 30 33 31 (neutral grip), 27 (wide grip)
DB OHP: 7x49.5 5x49.5 9x44.5
on-site interview in Mini Soda
Oh yeah, I worked out last night quickly before bed.
Push ups: 10 20 40
DB OHP: 7x49.5 6x49.5
No DOMS today and still hit my previous push up PR of 40, so obviously my body isn’t too pathetically out of shape.
Juggling a thesis, job search, and wedding isn’t fun.
I might be moving to Boston for a job in the next 3-6 months. I’m a strong candidate for the position, but haven’t yet received an offer. It’s an excellent research centre so I’d be foolish not to take the job. But I may hate the city…
Anyone following me from Boston, MA?
What’s it like?
