Plunging right back in
It should go without saying that I most assuredly did not get to ease back into my normal work routine after my trip to Florida. Instead I (involuntarily) plunged right back in, full speed ahead. I was very busy at my main job, having to play catch up on things I hadn’t been able to complete before the trip. On Wednesday I had to stay almost until 3, a half hour past normal quitting time, even though I had skipped my morning break and taken only about 15 minutes for lunch.
Working until 3 was more of an annoyance than usual because I was scheduled for 5 until 10 at the Major Home Improvement Retailer. With only two hours between the two jobs it was almost like going straight from one to another. At least the lighter traffic on Veterans Day helped. As for the MHIR, the 5-hour shift seemed twice as long. It took an eternity for 10 to roll around. There was a decent customer flow, but with two other people working in garden until 9, it was not a busy shift. Hence it dragged.
Thursday wasn’t as bad. I was busy at my main job, but in a more controlled sense than the day before, and I wasn’t scheduled at the MHIR. I had been planning on going to the gym in the evening but other things came up.
Friday, at last, was my return to the gym. After doing nothing particularly productive during the day, it being my day off, I finally moseyed to the gym in the early evening. I started with one arm dumbbell rows, keeping it light due to my lack of practice: 5 × 8 × 70/70. Next came (yes!) deadlifting, albeit on a very small scale: 2 × 4 × 225. I finished with barbell curls, 8 × 85, 8 × 95, 8 × 85, 8 × 95.
