Shoulders and a break from the gym

Trained shoulders with Randy Howard at Strength Beyond in kalamazoo.  I've been pretty beat up lately and have started running into the problem of running a low grade fever again (if anyone remembers my issues from years ago, I used to have a big problem with that) so I decided to take most of the week of Thanksgiving off from the gym.
I trained Monday and Tuesday and then took Wednesday through Sunday off.   I ended up driving over to the East side of the state to do some hunting with my dad....got skunked though.  Saw plenty of deer...but the bastards stayed out of range the whole time.

I was kind of rushed and had only sighted my muzzleloader to about 60 yards before hand, hoping it wouldn't be a big issue....but I never had one come in closer than about 150 yards.   I almost took a shot on a big doe at about 150 yards but decided against it.

Nothing spectactular about the session.  My shoulders aren't really ever a weak point and tend to overpower my chest so I don't really go to crazy on them any more--just enough to get the blood flowing and not get injured.
