My 16-y.o. is with us for the weekend so I was rushed. Annnd I couldn't get a squat rack though I waited for nearly an hour. Mmmmk...calisthenics and abs and calves and lotsa mobility work it is.
4 rounds of...
horizontal calf machine (think leg press calves)
leopard crawls forward & backward
a few rolling variations
shin box and some other hip internal/external rotation things
Then ran in to a dear college age friend whose mom (my age) had a stroke and has been on the decline. Gave her some resources that will hopefully help get the two of them to a better place, mentally and physically.
Left the gym at my target leave time and proceeded to the garden center to pick up the last few vegetable plants for my raised beds. Two different grocery stores (ugh) and those three errands took me a whopping THREE HOURS, even though they're within 10 minutes of my house: traffic, couldn't immediately find what I was looking for....etc.

OK, science and math geeks! I have a great story for you!
I'm helping my kid with her math homework and I had to do a double take. The BOOK mixed up the concepts of precision vs. accuracy! Like, they used the definition for accuracy to define precision! After laughing myself to tears, texting my husband plus every science and math friend I know, I sat down to email the teacher who is probably just teaching out of the book and has no clue. I even offered if she wanted me to, to come in and guest teach those concepts - if it would be well received that is. Wow.
I taught precision vs. accuracy to middle school, high school, and college students, as well as correcting other scientists in the workplace who were writing new drug applications and journal articles (to be published in peer reviewed journals -- at least they had the sense to ask someone proofread them LOL).
Hope this gave the geeks here a chuckle as it did for me.

Not sure you peeps are seeing what's really going on: my heaviest triples on squats is 175 (puts my 1RM around 187-198), and this was just two working sets WELL below that, plus 4 sets for abs and calves.
it's truly not "lookin' great"
Thanks for the encouragement still the same.
