Latest Update

I guess it's been a while since my last update. Oops.

The biggest news I guess is that an injury a few weeks ago continues to wreak some havoc with my training. On May 8th I suffered a pretty severe injury to my left shoulder. Long story, but I was walking the dogs. Squirrel. Pulling. Concrete. Muscles pulled, bones, nerves, who knows. I couldn't do much for 4 days, and then I had to slowly get back to things.

I haven't been able to work out completely as before yet, but I can bike some and use the elliptical. Only a couple days ago I added some 5 pound weighted overhead presses. I can't run yet since I can't swing the left arm. And swimming - can't circle the left shoulder for freestyle, but I am slowly working in breast stroke though at 1/2 speed.

Before the injury I was contemplating a short break from weight workouts, but not this long of a break!
