    Anyway, I have no house arrest lifting to log...because I moved into a new apartment over the weekend. I'm finally unpacked and somewhat squared away.
    I averaged about 8k steps and 20 floors climbed Saturday and Sunday. Everything hurts, especially my Achilles tendons, and spinal erectors.
    That's a lot of steps. I think I'd be hurting too. I'm still adjusting to the "dreadmill." Strangely enough my ankles seem to be the weak link!

    I'm in phase 2 of the beginner prescription and by far the hardest thing for me, in terms of interset recovery as well as realizing my "theoretical" strength, was the 10 rep squat sets.

    I was confident I would rapidly progress at them but I didn't really. My pacing got a lot better which made them less aerobically taxing but the weight on the bar wasn't going up after the first two weeks or so.

    Boy Tim, I sure hope so.

    Today I walked the neighborhood. I hope to get a lift in tomorrow.

    I feel like everything is backsliding. These light weight sessions are killing me at the moment. And walking 2-4 miles isn't getting any easier.
