dumbbell_press[1]Over the weekend I did my first running since I got sick several weeks ago.  Cindy and I put in about 3 1/2 miles but of course it felt longer.  It seems every time I try to reboot my consistent running something derails me and I wind up back at square one.

I still could tell I am working at a strength deficit at the gym today which was chest day.  My top end on both dumbbell chest press and decline barbell bench press was around 10% off what had become normal before I got sick.
