Moving Sand

On Saturday we spent about 2 hours hauling sand and then I mowed the lawn. That was enough for the day.

On Sunday morning I did more yard work, we had some plans, and we got out in the garage around 4:30 to start a workout. Neither of us were in to it and we decided to go for a walk instead, which was about 2.7 miles. Bodies just needed a break I think.

Yesterday I walked 18 holes on the golf course. In the evening I made 10 more trips carrying two 5-gallon buckets of sand to the dumpster, which was done in less than 30 minutes.

We really haven’t worked out since Friday! Up near my hip socket started feeling weird today around 3pm when I was sitting at my desk.

I was supposed to be doing a 10:00 EMOM of 3 reps, but I only got through the first set and then on in the second set I had some shooting pain from that left leg. So after pouting a couple of minutes I sat down and worked my shoulders

6:00 EMOM

  • 5 Seated Dumbbell Shoulder Press (50#)



  • cal BikeErg
  • Push-ups

Was supposed to be deadlifts with 225 (planned to scale back to 185), but I could feel my leg when I tried a couple reps with 95 pounds. So I decided to use the bike. Was able to go unbroken on the push-ups and finished in 5:01


4 Rounds

  • 10 Hollow Rocks
  • 10 V-ups
  • 10 Tuck-ups
  • 10s Hollow Hold
  • 1:00 Rest

Been a long time since we’d done this one and it showed. Took me 6:43.


3 Sets

  • 12 High pulley underhand row (double handle, 93-82-82#)
  • 12 Incline DB Row (35#)

3 Sets

  • 12 Incline Straight Arm Pulldown (60#)
  • 12 Incline Lat Pulldown (forward facing, 93#)

I’m going to sit here and hit my leg with the massage gun. I really hope this isn’t some new injury. Maybe some kind of pinched nerve from sitting all day.
