The forecast showed rain all day, so I didn’t golf, but they were wrong for the second day in a row. Maybe a good thing I didn’t golf though, because my back bothered me throughout the day. We did get some rain today though, which made it extra humid working out in the garage again.

Over the last two years, fitness priorities have changed a bit. Almost every year I’ve come out of the Open with some type of back injury, so the focus now is on staying healthy for the rest of life; I don’t need to be hobbling around because I wanted to prove myself in some workout. So I scaled back the weight and limited bending over on the snatches to save my back. Also decided on step overs, which give a great workout as well. It was a great workout and I got through 7+5.
Partner w/ B. Rows were our buy-in, then doing 2 movements and resting while partner goes. We were planning on something in the half hour range, with the buy-in being like a warm-up. My back gave out in the 3rd round of renegade rows so ended it after those, taking 29:24.
