maxresdefault[1]Today I stuck to all dumbbell work with chest press followed by pull overs.  My strength level was on par with recent weeks.  I topped out with 95 pounders on the press.  My left arm failed on the 4th rep when the weight drifted inward transferring the strain to my tricep which was not up to the task. I tried an 85 pound dumbbell for the top end of my pull overs, 5 pounds more than I can ever recall trying.  It was difficult but manageable for 6 reps.

Over the weekend I got another 5K+ running session in.  For the first time this year I averaged a pace under 9 which is nothing to brag about normally unless you have been averaging closer to 10 up until that point.
