No rush-hour traffic worries today.  I left for work about 9:15, which meant that I was able to miss the worst of the traffic.  In fact, westbound traffic on the Expressway zoomed right along, although for some reason it was much heavier in the opposite direction. Once I got into work I learned to my dismay that I probably would have been better off dealing with rush hour traffic.  Monday evening I had found out via e-mail that is going to be a major publicity event not far from where I live in mid-July, and it will feature activities that should draw in potential customers – not just mere solicitation, as had been the case with respect to the ill-fated event of this past weekend.  All I had to do is pay some money to one of the managers to reserve my slot.  Unfortunately, when I went to her office about 10, a sign on the door said that all nine slots at this event were sold out.  This must have happened within the past hour.  In other words, had I arrived at nine rather than ten I probably would have been able to participate in the event.  It never occurred to me that it would have sold out so quickly.  As a bit of consolation I signed up for a couple of different events, which aren’t likely to be quite as productive as the one I missed out upon but still should be decent enough.  I also did some paperwork and left around 4:15, too late to miss all of the afternoon rush hour but early enough to miss the worst of it.

Gym: some productive upper-body work.  Bench press: 6 x 135, 4 x 185, 4 x 205, 4 x 225, 3 x 235, 2 x 245, 1 x 255, 4 x 225.  It was good to up the weights in this manner.  T-bar rows: 8 x 160, 2 x 8 x 165, 8 x 160.  I wanted to do some shrugs, but after waiting over ten minutes for a group of people to finish using the Hammer Strength machine I gave up and left.
