End of a long week. Weather is suppose to be beautiful for the next few days, peaking at a sunny 73f Tuesday and then dropping off into rain and cold. Planning on trying my max run Tuesday. Haven’t run past 2.5 miles recently but that’s pretty easy so we’ll see.

Nice work. Strong sets in here. Chest supported rows, are those DB’s? Strong regardless.

It’s an old one where you sit upright and there’s a pad against your chest. Stack of weights. Like to use a neutral grip and do as many as I can one arm.

Ok, not gonna do any Marathons. Took off midmorning and ran 8.4 miles (measured later by odometer). Felt real good the what I figure was the first 5 miles and around the 6th mile my left hip, the previously “injured” one, started tighting up. Figured I slow down a little and work it out but just got worse. When I had to stop to try and stretch it out called it quits. Disappointed. Wanted to hit at least 10.

Noticed there was suddenly a slice of cake emoji next to my name. Means this is my anniversay of joining TNation on 18 Nov 2007, 14 years ago. Ah the good ole days. A strapping young lad of 52 and barely out of puberty then. Damn time does good fast.

Did some work at my mother’s house so got a great lunch of Jaeger schnitzel, spätzle, and home made brotchen straight from the oven. Later did a 2 mile run and 6 mile bike ride. Needed it.

Mother’s German and her cooking is delicious but definitely not low cal or carb.

Used the fly machine. The one you can either do flys or rear delts with. I adjusted the seat, changed hand postion, tried sticking my chest out, and varied the degree of bend at the elbows. I get a great pump, in my front delts. Sticking with good old db flys.

I’ve found keeping chest below the finish position of hands, and arms pretty much straight puts a bit more emphasis on pecs rather than delts.
I like db flys but don’t like you can’t squeeze the contraction.

Got home from the gym to find a very large limb from one of MY WIFE’s Bradford Pears had ripped of, partially, barely miising some utilitiy lines. Broke out the chain saw, cut it down and cut it up, (resisting the urge to take the whole damn tree down) moved it out to the street for pickup. Preparations for Thanksgiving are in full swing. Assorted goodies in the fridge and freezer which I’m forbiden to touch. Eat a dozen of the blue cheese deviled eggs your wife prepared for a party just once and you lose all trust.
