I am reading War and Peace, which I last picked up 25 years ago and barely remember. (Somehow I remember Anna Karenina quite well, though). It is making me very happy. It's great to read something with this towering reputation and not be let down at all but think "Yep, fully justified."
OK, my first workout back I benched 160x10x10x18 (failure). That was about 20% down from my peak weight. (Bench is always dumbbell). Today I did 160x12x12x20, so better. Peak deadlift was 280x5.
