Friday, July 2 p.m.
Ran 1 mile warm up on the tready, then did the dead lifts. Feeling a little discomfort in my left glute (or hip or pirformis) after racing Thursday night.
Dead lifts were: 158 - 158 - 158 - 178 - 178 - 198(fail) - 188
Felt these for sure. Failed at 198 even though I was able to do it the other day. Dropped it back down to 188 and just managed to get that up.
Immediately after, I did the 5x800 on the treadmill. Ran .5 miles for each. The first three went really well and then the glute became quite unhappy — each stride resulting in a fair amount of pain. Hopped off the tready to stretch and manipulate my leg a bit. Managed to finish all 5 intervals. The 4th was not good, but the 5th was better.
4:20 (glute on fire!)
After the workout, I used my trigger point roller thingy to really target the place that seems to be a bit inflamed in my arse area. Found the spot exactly and worked at it for several minutes. Definitely having some inflammatory issues since late last year that are frustrating. First with my shoulder which is feeling better now that I've found the spot that needs kneading out and now with my glute, hip area. Sucks to get old, but I refuse to let that get in my way.
