I choose to link the acoustic version of the song ”gossamer thin”. there is another version which is also quite good.
summer is over. still wearing shorts, though. body temperature is not an issue. people around me wear jeans and jackets, I wear shorts and a knitted sweater.
the last few months have been really interesting. I feel I have grown quite a bit professionally with regards to both actual knowledge/experience and also with regards to patient experience. almost all patients have been under 40 years old, some as young as 18, with other expectations and demands on the healthcare they receive compared to somewhat older patients. every day I feel privileged and lucky to do such interesting things.
during summer I have gotten to know some of the people at the barbell club a bit better. they are all nice individuals. one of the older guys, H, has been extremely helpful with squat coaching. on his watch, I have surpassed 200 kg while improving my form and control.
the weights have been good to me lately. recent lifts include, but are not limited to, the following:
- bench: 135 kg (with pause)
- squat: 205 kg
- deadlift: 235 kg
world records are still to come. bench is slowest as usual, but now I can bench 132.5 kg on any given training day. I still do the sheiko programming, but I have allowed myself to test for daily bench maxes and it is never below 130 kg even when taxed from previous sessions.
I am extremely thankful to everyone around me. without them I would not be able to lead this life what is way better than anything I ever anticipated. thank you.
be good to each other.
