Yank my chain

This has been mostly a light week for workouts. The deadlifts last week got up to 255 pounds, then I dialed back a bit. One of my first lessons from starting workouts is to go slow, muscles strengthen quick, but tendons much less so, and they heal even slower.

I’ll pick up next week with some new stuff and we will see how that goes.

I’ve also been biking to work a few days each week, that’s 3 miles each way, and that has been a lot of fun, and a nice addition to the workout as well. I finally managed to clean my chain, which made a much bigger difference in my ride than I expected. The bike is much quieter, and shifts soooo much better. It is still a total tank, being an old chromoly frame, with fat 700×38 road tires, but it takes the curbs and potholes well.

I’m glad we are finally getting some summer… in September.
