    Today started out rough, but worked out in the end. I wrecked my shin on the pin that adjusts the length of the GHR. My shoelace got caught as it often does and in my haste and frustration, instead of carefully going back the way I came, I kicked my leg, pulling the pin completely out still on the lace where it swung around and impaled my shin.
    So...
    Dead 210x2 this was supposed to be a triple but I was not paying attention. 240 x2 270x1 this was set for 260 today but again some idiot wasn't focused and started loading the bar wrong. I saw it was going to end up at 265 or 270 so I said fck it lets pull. I was happy with this in the end because its the end of this cycle anyhow. Next week is a deload then shit gets real.

    Today's run;
    I added some distance over last week, but the pace was off. I'm estimatining approximately 3.8miles, but with a few stops for, dog poop, me pee and crossing busy roadways. With the walk to and from over 4 for sure. I wanted to put in a little extra for those of you who want to run but can't. (DC)

    The running gives me time to think and reflect. This a good and bad thing. One of the things that I thought about was this board and how much I am humbled by it. My bitches and complaints seem so small and petty. I whine because I have to rebuild a squat while some of you can't freaking walk. I bitch that I miss a dead because I didn't warm up my hamstrings properly while a woman here has bones literally falling apart. I slept like crap last night and honestly I didn't want to get up and run. I started the run making excuses. DC wants to run, but can't because she was torn up in a car wreck. I love exercise and physical activity, but really am I no different than the fat shlubb I saw at the Dicks in the underarmor section who can't start a workout program because he doesn't have the right outfit? I want to thank those of you who post openly about overcoming obstacles in your training life. Thank you for your hard work. You are helping me to push a little harder.

    Just form work today with 115 for squat and bench.
    I got some news yesterday that may change how I proceed the next 6 weeks. I had planned on hitting the next 531 phase, but it is very weight intensive and I may have to focus on other things due to an upcoming PAT. Basically more running and push ups etc. if I get it, it will be a good thing for my family so worth the wait I guess.

    Good run today. Slightly shorter distance, maybe 2.5miles? But good pace. Still no details on the PAT, they want all my documents and certifications first.
    Ok so on to the weight room. I guess Jim wendler forgets that some of us have jobs and kids and shit to do because there is no way I could get tomorrow's training done in an hour. There's 7 sets of bench alone, WTF.
    Just kidding Jim, I love you man! So anyhow I decided to do the squats today and;
    Squat 150x3 170x3 190x3 210x1 I wasn't happy with the depth so I did that again, 210x1
    Pull up 5x5 side bend 40sx25x2
