Ankle feeling better in general, although right now sore from being up long, working legs, driving, etc.

Saw ortho doc (was ready to cancel it, since leg so much better, than figured what the heck). He says it is fine. Little micro-tear. Doesn't think I'm in danger of a rupture. Said not to strengthen it or stretch it. Just leave it alone. Said that onset at night was strange and he had no explanation why.

1. this is the third arms day in a row that I have blown off doing the extra 30 minutes of biking. Has made it easier to get work done. Think this is fine.

2. Tried db curls. Very humbling. Had to drop from 35 to30 on first set and then from 30 to 25 on the second. Will be doing them from now on, unless I have an issue with them. Do feel much more tug of the weight on my shoulder.

3. I may also try changing the motion to do finishing. Have been just doing them to halfway (given the one second pause), I thgink this was plenty tiring. But maybe not developing my arms enough. Think I will keep the pause though.

Was a little anxious with some different stuff going on (thinking about changing workout program, in a contest, work stuff, etc.) Went ahead and did the normal workout. Felt fine. Arms day is the hard one. Especially if I bike in (get a lot of tension from holding the handle bars, riding over cobblestones).

Went up on all lifts (and swim) except for calves (keeping light for achilles). Seemed to tolerate heavier lifts fine. Had to self assist on hip adduction for a couple reps.

Hamstrings went up but remain 15# below previous maxes. Added back in anterior tib at 40#, 15# below max. Was very easy, so will go up weekly on that. (still takes 9 weeks to get back to where I was on ant tib, 12 for hamstring curls).

Tried to take it a bit easier on the old sack of bones, by limiting cardio to an half hour of biking and separating it several hours from lifting. Still kinda bothered my mentally to be driving to the gym, vice riding. Had the window open, so at least I felt outdoors...

Went up on most of my lifts. Tolerated the increases pretty well. Still getting used to db curls. motion is tricky.

Normally Monday would be an arms day, but in the Ruci philosophy of mixing exercixe into life more, I decided to make it a cardio swim day (since I can swing lift days, since it allows me to stay longer on weekend trip and since I only have occasional opportunity to swim outdoors). sorry to wax on, but this is s new concept to me, to be more chilled out. My drivenness made sense when losing though.

32 laps of swimming is a lot...am in there for a while...especially as I still have to be careful with shoulder...I sort of hold it in the socket. Chemicals outdoors in pool seem worse too. Nose was itching. And I felt sick to stomach when I finished. and needed to take a leak (in there so long). It's fine...just a different thing to get used to.

Date: 31MAY10
Gym: Reston pool
Week/day: NS24-C1

Cardio: swim: 1600

Rehab: (2 by10):
MISSED

Stretch (1*30, single leg except calf/shin)
MISSED

Supplements: multi and gluc/chondroit, biotin and gluc

Assessment:
* Workout: Fine except missed the little crap
* Diet: on track.
* Weight: 167 (+2). 3# water drop, no idea why other than something with working late or less berries.
* Work: tiring, but got barely enough done to sign it off. Then tucked in for a limited number of hours. Dentist next day thought I was super mellow, but it was sleepiness. :red:

Had a dental implant put in. (note: take care of your teeth people...wastes lots of money and makes feel old to let them degrade). No workout and took my swing day from not working (actually probably did a couple hours work anyhow, but not a day...)

Date: 01JUN10
Gym: NA
Week/day: NS24-R1

Rehab: (2 by10):
MISSED

Stretch (1*30, single leg except calf/shin)
MISSED

Supplements: multi and gluc/chondroit, biotin and gluc

Assessment:
* Workout: Will do my little stuff on WED-FRI. SAT back to normal activity. Could probably do more, but take it smart and follow orders. Don't want to destabilize this multi thousand dollar investment.
* Diet: on track. Had a lot of mushy food. Tomorrow will try fiber again (on one side of mouth).
* Weight: 164! (-1). Bizarre to drop 6 from two days ago. I did not even do any planned carb omission, I think. I guess my best guess is that it was different sides of the water-glycogen balance though.
* Work: swing day. Did a couple hours. Good to goof off all day!

* Weight: 167 (+2). Almost in range to clamp down and go on the 2100 bus. But tie goes to the runner.
* Work: Easy. Got it done.
