After such a late night the previous night I was happy to fall asleep by around 10:00p including reading for 15-20 minutes beforehand.
When I woke up I headed over to the gym for a quick 20 minute elliptical session. I had originally planned on either doing the Spartan WOD or a longer elliptical session but wanted to make sure I got back home before Laura left and Adrian woke up.
The last PR I remember setting on the elliptical before my injuries was 4,000 strides in 20 minutes which I easily broke today at 4,200 strides.
Though I use the elliptical often because it relieves the stress on my ankles and shins, I typically use a different brand elliptical than the one that I used to use at my old gym. However, today I used the same brand and model elliptical that I used to use so it made it easier to track against my previous PR.
It is possible that I had a higher PR but that was the last one that I remember.
My shoulders felt good before and during my workout. My left shoulder wasn’t sore anymore and I didn’t feel any of that deep pain that I felt earlier in the week.
I knocked out a couple hours worth of work while Adrian and I hung out at home watching a bunch of content that he had queued up on Hulu and YouTube.
Once we finished with that we walked over to a local pizza spot for lunch. It is mine and Laura’s favorite place for pizza and it was fun to eat in there.
Because it was such a beautiful day we went for the same 3.5 mile walk up Communications Hill that Laura and I typically do on Sundays.
It was a nice way spending a bit of time mid-Friday afternoon and was a chance for Adrian to see the gorgeous views from the top of Communications Hill.
When we got back home I banged out some more work to bring my work week to a close.
We waited for Laura to get home and then headed out for a fun dinner at our favorite Mexican restaurant.
With the cardio session this morning, the Communications Hill walk and taking Sasha for her walks, I should close out this Friday at around 16,000 steps - much higher than normal for a Friday.
Tomorrow we’re planning on driving down to Monterey Bay and Carmel since Adrian has never been down that way during any of his visits.
