notes: low weight, short rests, those 60 seconds were spent cheering the other guy on. just taking a small vacation from block pulls. the original plan was only 30 seconds rest, but I figured I needed 60 seconds for the other guy to do his thing. I probably should have upped the weight to compensate. So I did another wave of these right after.

notes: my friend’s legs felt wobbly at the end! I felt ok actually. We will see if I am feeling it tomorrow.

Then after that I came home, promptly lost my phone, and spent the early afternoon retracing my steps around the city looking for it. Kind of a wasted Saturday afternoon
