My ankle is feeling much better. Almost feels normal. So of course, if you’ve been around the block enough times, you know that means you still got at least 2 weeks to go. 🙂 Now is not the time to really get at it. But, I am wanting to change up because I do feel I’m over the initial issues and do want my body to adjust and adapt to heavier loads again. So on a whim today I did a double with 185 and a single with 225. Hardly heavy, but heavier than I’ve been doing and my ankle was fine with it all.

I think come next week I’ll shift from the “sets of 10” to following Paul’s 5,4,3,2,1,8-15+50% approach. This will get me into that groove, but weights will remain light, like working up to 225. Slowly I’ll increase and work my way up to a proper working weight over the coming weeks.
