road-to-two-plates-graphic-1[1]I got back to barbell squats for the first time since I went under the knife.  It really didn’t bother my shoulder at all since I have the bar resting across my scalpula instead of my deltoids.  I did do one less set at 185 pounds since I haven’t done the movement for several weeks.  I never feel fantastic doing lower body work but all things considered it went ok.

I got to see Cindy briefly at the beginning of my workout.  She is going to be teaching cycling classes at the gym soon and is getting trained for it.

Last night after work I did a circuit in the bar park that kicked my ass.  The 5 sets of 10 pull ups, 20 push ups, and 1/4 mile runs did not seem like it would be nearly as taxing as it was.  I was totally wiped out by the end of the last lap around the back yard.
