Genuine questions, John! I meant what day Running As are done. Push-ups on Monday now, Running As?

Yes I knew they were genuine questions, and appreciate the interest. I wondered if you thought the depletion pushups done for the first time last Thursday may have contributed to the back injury, which I doubt.

Running A’s always on Monday with a rest Tuesday and now added pushups.

Massage last night was real full on, back quite sore today but will be right. No squats tomorrow (Wed)

1st set of 80’s real good, 2nd not quite as but understandable. Back fine as and resisted the temptation to go silly on squats. Pleased to finally get that 5 x 5 on bench.

Changed where and routine for stretching as by the time I get home from the track and make a shake it is about 30 mins and I have been a bit tighter than I should really be, seemed to be fine today used an oldie but goody http://www.t-nation.com/free_online_article/sports_body_training_performance_repair/the_lazy_mans_guide_to_stretching&cr=

Will do that pre weights and my ‘old’ one the other days post foam rolling.
