Between the shoulder PT and not sleeping very well this week, I welcomed  Wednesday’s recovery-ish worktout. Though 200m sled pulls are challenging, especially with all the debris out back. Get a pebble under your sled and that will stop you in your tracks! Yeah, I just got “all princess and the pea” on you. (?) I don’t know if it was the Iron Scap or if I slept funny (on my 13 mattresses) but I’ve been driving like an old lady since Tuesday (with limited neck mobility). Felt much better after Friday’s PT session though. Thanks, Chad.

Double EMOM Friday was good; modified the second EMOM adding a hang clean and eliminating a jerk. (Why are jerk and snatch jokes so funny?) Wanna know what else is funny? When you send your mom a selfie to show her your new ‘do and she has nothing to say about your hair, but instead comments on the size of your hands. It’s the camera angle, Mom!

Rest day Thursday (evening) I tried to watch a show on Vikings, which looked really awesome but was not so much. Watched Friends instead. That show is like a documentary we can show all the kids on what life was like before the internet and smart phones. And low-rise skinnies.

New stat block is in the works. I know, with baited breath…
