Surprised I didn't post this yesterday! I did manage a new 1RM in overhead (military) press: 125lbs! It went up slow, but it always went up!
Swim season officially started last Saturday. The OW team I swim with held a clinic for new (mostly triathlon) swimmers. The coach/director allowed those of us "in the club" to come early and swim the course. The water was cold, low 60s Fahrenheit, but felt so good to be swimming where I don't have to flip-turn. Awesome. And the regular weekly swims begin on the 29th.
Therefore...I move to 2-a-week weights next week. Still planned for this week is a 1RM attempt in squat. I did 225lbs a couple months ago. Not sure what to try for this time. 240? 235?
In the language journey, BCS going well. Started GLOSS today, at the 1 level in listening. My listening is the worst skill of mine, so thought I'd work on it. In the twice-weekly class I do a bunch of listening with the instructor, but he gives no quarter. The GLOSS cuts are very DLPT-y, so I'll continue them.
Middle Egyptian is so much fun. The moderator for the C&M (Collier & Manley) course
