Well that was weird.  My right ankle was sore and a bit swollen today, even though I hadn’t been to the gym in two days.  When I got to the gym around 5:30 (having the day off from work), I decided to avoid running on the treadmill today, to avoid making my ankle any worse.  I started out with a solid 15 minutes on the heavy bag, which of course involves footwork but doesn’t have the constant pounding of the treadmill.  It went well, with some decent combinations.  I also spent a while on the speed bag, also doing well.  As an alternative to running I did 20 minutes on the stationary cycle at 19.2 mph.  Next came some bench pressing, though because of all the bag work I was able to do only a fairly light session: 6 x 135, 4 x 185, 2 x 205, 1 x 235, 2 x 3 x 230, 3 x 3 x 225.  Then it was off to neutral grip pull-ups,  3 x 8, 2 x 6.  That amounted to 36 total reps, just under one-third of the way toward my weekly quota of 110 reps.  I finished with Cybex overhead presses, 8 x 190, 8 x 195, 8 x 200, 8 x 190.
