2 inches? Is that it?

So after much ballyhoo, we had a mere 2 inches of snow last night. It seems the grocery stores were not overrun, the National Guard was not called out, and the Federal and DC Gov't offices are open. Maybe, just maybe, sanity is breaking out in this town (although I hear Northern VA is on a 2 hr school delay, so maybe notsomuch).

1st workout done- 3-3-3-3-3 max deadlifts. 5 min warm up on the ERG (or is it erg?). Started w/135, then moved up to 225 and had to stay there for my 5 rounds. My lower back is still my limiting factor (thank you very much, Mr. guy-who-decided-120lbs-of-additional-gear-is-an-acceptable-combat-load-for-jumping-out-of-MRAPs-and-generally-running-around-Iraq). I definitely had more to give on this one, but I'm going to have to wait for my back to catch up with the rest of me.

Bike Tabata tonight, and possibly a swim this afternoon.

ETA- Swim done. A few 50's to warm up, and then an 800 in 13:30ish (possibly 14:20- I may have mis-counted laps and added an extra 50).

Thought for the day- When putting on compression socks, it is a good idea to not do it standing up.
