It’s the Friday before Thanksgiving. I am done with classes and going to work until December (!!!) but have lots of work to do between now and December. But that’s okay.
Since yesterday was my building’s annual Thanksgiving lunch, we rescheduled Lunchtime Lifts for today. (We didn’t want to miss Thanksgiving lunch, but we also didn’t want to lift weights after eating a Thanksgiving lunch.) Today was the last day of our official sessions, so we did max outs. My bad form on the trap bar deadlift left me in a bit of pain, but I’m hoping I can sleep it off. I went for a 2.5 mile run, and my back felt fine. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I haven’t given myself an injury.
I think this is what I did...Paul is going to send our results. I have plenty of room to grow. 🙂
Back squats - 27 kg
Bench press - 20 kg
Trap bar deadlift - 72 lb
Tonight, we hosted Tim and Emily for dinner. Emily made beef stroganoff, and I made sides. We also provided desserts (one left over from yesterday’s Thanksgiving lunch and one from Costco), so it was a lovely team effort. I made roasted brown butter honey garlic carrots (recipe from https://therecipecritic.com/roasted-brown-butter-honey-garlic-carrots/), and they were tasty and tea lovely easy. Not quite as easy as the asparagus I steamed in the microwave, but everything can’t be the easiest thing.
The weekend is shaping up to be a busy one, but I’m excited about it. Tomorrow, I’m running with Ellen and going to the Diaper Bank before our family members arrive to watch LSU yeet ArKansas into the stratosphere. Sunday, I have a half marathon in New Orleans with Sandra, then I’ll be busy working on my literature review and hosting a movie night. Then it’ll be time to prepare for Thanksgiving travel! Whew.
Something that made today great: Slow Mode meeting at CC’s with Volunteers In Public Schools
Time I woke up: 7:45 am
