I've missed recording a ton of things that I had at least saved as drafts in Blogger. I've published them all below.

Am currently sick in a minor way that I'm hoping doesn't get worse. Yesterday I had a sore throat. Today it's feeling better but I'm more sniffly and congested. Luckily, last time I got sick I discovered the holy elixir known as "NyQuil" and have it standing by.

My left shoulder has also been hurting for about a week, while the last time I deloaded it was my right one that was problematic. It's been feeling better but it hurt while benching today. Hoping it goes away next time I bench heavy.

On a sidenote, benching 360 and squatting 405x8 were very cool return-to-form type accomplishments. Neither are PRs, but they're close. Done while losing weight, albeit slowly, and fresh from an injured knee.
