Almost lunged – and nearly fell – into a big pile of dog crap!

Yesterday’s leg workout was even better than last week’s workout. I’ve always had fairly strong legs, and I’ve not lost much strength at all in that area. It was a nice mental boost to be able to go heavy so soon after returning to my regular workouts.

The rain stopped a few hours before my workout, so once again I was able to do walking lunges in the backyard. The grass was still wet and I was concerned about slipping with loaded barbell across my traps, so I decided to do a couple bar-only test runs. My footing felt surprisingly secure, so I proceeded. The only problem was I somehow missed cleaning up a big pile of dog crap. I suddenly spotted the mess at the very end of my first set just as I was about to lunge into it. I had to adjust my stride with an extra looooong lunge, and my very fatigued legs came extremely close to buckling out from under me. Thank goodness they didn’t, because I would have wound up sitting in the dog poo. If I had landed in the smelly pile and were truly hardcore I would have finished the workout covered in dog crap. Mastover certainly would have continued, and Zen probably has dog crap and/or puke on his clothes most of the time anyway. But I’m kind of a clean freak, so in all honestly that incident would have ended the workout for a hot, soapy shower.

Today I’m working delts and traps. My right shoulder is bothering me a little from my chest workout on Wednesday, but it’s not too bad. I’m not worried about today’s workout, as direct delt work almost never bothers my shoulders – it’s mostly chest exercises, such as weighted dips and bench presses, that irritate it.

Happy Friday!
