No spot

benchMy bench press buddy was back this week.  Having him around ironically helped me get 225lbs without him touching the bar for a spot even though it was very close.  Having that safety net around definitely helps me push into the very edge of my power reserves.

I got another 4.25 mile run in on Sunday.  Although the actual act of running never feels fun, getting at least one run in per week for the last several months is a hat hanger for me at this point.
