Sleep: 9 (!) hours in bed, 845p-545a, 77% quality. Up at 2a for b/r, in/out regularly after that, but I got up feeling pretty darn rested. That's two "happy face" mornings in a row!
Body: Quite an improvement over yesterday. Still some aches in: right outer thigh, left outer shin, both glutes. All else is feeling pretty damned good - and, naturally, session felt awesome.
Stretches x2 (845a, 1p). Chinups in session (5x3).
Brain: Really good. Promotion was officially announced today, and the congratulatory emails ROLLED in. Late night though, worked until 6.
Grateful: For my friends. So lucky to have them.
