Today was pretty good.

Carbs do that. 😉

Since the weekend seminar, I’ve been a little beat up and in need of focusing more on recovery than usual. I’ve been working in a nap every day, eating a little more. It’s been paying off. Wife reports my bruising is healing much faster than usual, and I am feeling better. But of course, my feeling better could just be because I’m carb’d up.

And for sure, those carbs reflected today. I was able to move pretty well. Up’d some weights and such.

I am enjoying the pyramiding of the main lift, but it’s still just light/5 week so we’ll see how the remaining weeks go.

Otherwise, things just chugged along nicely today. No complaints.

In slightly related news, I ordered a Spud Inc. Bowtie to see if it might help my shoulders and pain issues. I am growing more convinced that my “arm pain” isn’t truly based in my arms but in actually in my chest and shoulders, just manifesting/radiating down the arm. So we shall see.
