Monday, December 24 – Tuesday December 25

Monday was a typical Christmas Eve, making some last-minute purchases for Christmas dinner and trying to get the house in some semblance of order.  Not an easy task given the cat population.   The gym was open only until 2pm, but I was able to make a relatively quick visit around noon and do some bench pressing.  Very good bench pressing, indeed: 6 x 135, 6 x 185, 3 x 8 x 225.  As far as I know that was the very first time I’ve done three sets of eight at 225.  Of course I completely fried my muscles in the process, so much so that I when I tried doing a cooldown set at 185 I could barely make it through a single rep.  But hey, I’m not complaining.

Christmas dinner was a success.  Our unconventional choice of New York strip steaks turned out fine.  I also made a pear pie, trying to emulate an apple pie with a different fruit.  It was more like a tart than an actual pie, but everyone liked it, so that’s what matters.
