Looks Like I'm Taking At Least A Couple Of Days Off From Lifting
Friday evening I was walking down the stairs and stepped wrong. Just like that I rolled my ankle. Who does that? I hope I’m not the only dumb ass. Saturday morning it didn’t feel so great at all.
I could put weight on it and it was unpleasant at first but once I got moving it was fine. We went to the grocery store and to get flowers and for two mile walks and it was fine other than feeling a little angry but that makes me know that it’s at least nothing major. I ended up with fourteen thousand steps according to my Garmin so I can’t complain too much.
It was definitely swollen a bit last night and still a bit this morning although not as much. It doesn’t seem nearly as sore today either. I feel like I could do my squats and deadlifts today but I’m gonna hold off for at least a couple of days to be cautious.
We’re gonna do our total a couple of weeks and also hoping to get out caching. We have plans to go out for a very lonely puzzle cache that I’ve had the coordinates to for a couple of years now. I would strongly prefer it if I don’t wanna mess either of those up.
Yesterday I did some non weighted testing. I am easily able to squat and lunge without it feeling worse. I’m able to walk with it feeling fine. It’s when I sit or lay down it gets a a little pissy.
We did do our bro session yesterday together although I modified mine to a point. I used the 50s for bench press since my foot didn’t really have to be a factor. They felt pretty good, better than dumbbell bench has been feeling for a while not so that made me happy. I had no issues at all dead lifting the 50 pound dumbbells to set them up on the box in front of the bench either so that' a positive.
Rather than the three point rows with the bench and dumbbells I decided to just do ring dips instead. I’ve been wanting to do them anyways plus I’d done a good bit of pulling this week.
For the curls and presses I lowered my weights for today down to 35 pounds. I’ve been using 45 and 50 recently but I thought going a little lighter will keep a little pressure off my foot and make it easier to favor one side if I needed to. They surprisingly felt fine on my ankle but I still stayed on the cautious side for now. It’s better to miss or reduce a day or two than make it worse and miss weeks or months.
Our music for the bro shit was Acid Bath.
