The Night Ocean

Recommended reading for Lovecraft fans - "The Night Ocean" by Paul La Farge. Coach and maybe Sunny D would really enjoy it IMO. I read the Goodreads blurb and it didn't seem particularly compelling, the story itself turned out to be quite different from what I expected, but in spite of all this it was a tremendously enjoyable read.

Squat 405x5, 415x5, 425x4, 435x2, 405x2

I tweaked my right knee doing wide-stance leg presses on Monday, and it started to hurt a bit on the heavier sets, so I stopped squatting. The lack of volume is hurting my squat gainz (from previous experience, I know I need to squat twice a week to make progress, and I'm not interested in that right now), so, I'll probably switch to something more generic like 5x5 for squats going forward.

Front squat 3s x 5

Leg extension 2s x 12
