I’m blogging later than I had hoped to be tonight. Really, I’d much rather be procrastinating about getting myself ready for bed so I could get sufficient hours of sleep before my open shift in the morning; however, I’ve only been home for the past half hour and I spent all of that time trying to resolve a problem with my laptop’s ability to connect to most websites. I had no problem connecting to Facebook or Gmail or updating my training log on googledocs, but I could not connect to any other site. The problem started last night, but I didn’t want to spend all night messing around more than I did. I’m not a super techie person, but I’m not too afraid to poke around until I find something that works. I finally got everything working, I think, so now I can blog about tonight’s training before rushing myself into bed.

This is the end of my deload week, so there was less volume. Everything is generally feeling good. The left knee is still feeling wonky off and on, but I’ve got some exercises to do that should eventually work it out. The back still doesn’t feel perfect, but I’m able to arch with more ease as I’m setting up for my bench presses. I’ll take progress like that!
