For the second week in a row I have had unusual amounts of pushing power compared to what has been the norm the last six months or more.  Today doing decline bench press I went all the way up to 240 pounds, unspotted.   240 pounds matches the most weight I have pressed off me in a half decade or more.  It is also the first time I ever recall doing that amount of weight on decline bench.  I did have more shoulder discomfort this week than last but at least for now I am enjoying this unexpected surge of strength.

I added another two laps to my run on Sunday.  I have a little IT/knee soreness today but not enough for a limp.
