Rained On

Went over to the UWS this afternoon in search of some (reasonably priced) Kosher Meat.

The good news is that I did not leave disappointed.

Bad news–getting stuck outside in a thunderstorm that only seemed to get progressively worse.

Cullinary Adventures

Tonight’s adventure is going to be playing with some salmon in the oven. Not sure what exactly I’m doing, but a Google search seems to suggest baking at 350 for 10-15 minutes.

Here goes nothing!

Progress

No one probably cares, but I feel like sharing anyway. Beyond setting a PR for myself on the dl Friday, tonight’s caliper measurements showed a -1mm change on the umbilical site. *grin*

Yay me!

Double PR Day!

Actually PR’d in the gym this morning and wound up breaking that PR on the subsequent set!

Was doing 5×5 dead lifts (following 5×5 squats which is just evil).

My previous best pull was 225. So I went for 245×5. Banged it out.
Then still being motivated, went for 255, and knocked out 3 sets of 255×5!

Needless to say I was quite happy with myself for most of the day. Although there was no one at work to share my excitement with. Even the Sister didn’t have a clue when I explained what the highlight of my day was.

Next time the 5×5 appears, I think it’s time to break 255! Hopefully I won’t have this nagging DOMS at the same time either.

Fresh Food

Blogging was light because it was both laundry night and food prep night. (The latter because the freeloading sister ate my pre-prepped food).

Normal blogging to hopefully resume tomorrow, should I survive a 5×5 leg day.
