this log is making me itch for a vaccine so i can lift weights again. i'm looking at an apartment today that is less than a block from my old gym. if i end up signing the lease on it...oh baby. fixin' to do starting strength for the first time in a decade.

do it! i envy you cos you'll enjoy it a lot more having not lifted in a long time. plus you also make solid progress rapidly so it's exciting to follow along  :ibjumping:

i haven't logged in a minute (as the kids say). i tweaked my back doing deadlifts. to be fair i think the main reason was life stress etc ruining sleep and recovery and also the first time i did sprints wrecking my muscles and nerves .. so all of that combined just made the conditions perfect for a a
 back injury. and ofcourse being a stupid caveman i never even considered backing off so here we are. i dropped the bar after the 3rd rep of 152.5kg. i'd done 5x155kg last week so it's not like it was easy, i was going for 6x152.5kg, 5x157.5kg and 177.5kg - bailed the workout  on the first set.

good news is, i rested one day, did nothing  for the entire day for first time in like 8 months.

i stopped logging, but still kicking ..
will start logging again but i just wanted to report im closing in on the first milestone of 95kg bodyweight, weighed 96.2kg im the gym in the last two weighins. was 96.5kg in the bathroom scales before i ran today.  i started 2021 at 100kg, so i'm doing okay .. if i hadn't injured my back would have a pretty sick deadlift to show for it as well but im happy just being healthy and training regularly!

have managed to get 12 runs in this year .. aiming for a total of 52. so far so good.

my sister and bro in law and kid are visiting for easter break. bro in law said he ran 10km last week at a sub 6/km pace .... i askked him what he weighed and he said 90kg. So he's kind of where i want to be - 90kg bodyweight and sub 6/km pace 10km. so i pushed my pace a bit today and ran one of my best times this year at 11km in 6.72/km pace! also was chasing a few ppl on the trail ..  one of them was a little fat lady who kicked my ass .. i am such a disgrace to the sex.
