most unpopular thread finally gave up is ghost, and I get to start over.
To answer Pete's question about "why under 130 BPM heartrate". the easy answer is "cuz shelby starnes said so", since I am trying to do his very low carbohydrate diet.
i was gonna drag my sled on sat morning before work, but it was raining, so I went to work early and climbed the stairs. its a 4 story building, so I figured I should be able to get 30 minutes in. i was going nice and slow, trying to keep under 130 bpm, and when I hit the 3d flight of stairs on the 3d trip, my knee said "fuck no" and started burning. as i have frequently bitched about, my lateral miniscus is pretty much worn away, so i had to stop.
Pete, I am going to try this "walking" thing you spoke of. I don't have to bend my knees very much when I do it. maybe after I get used to this "walking", i can carry something while I walk, and that will help me feel less feeble.
If my knees oblige, I will deadlift today. if they don't, i will deadlift poorly.
