DL should not be an issue. I think what I need to avoid is having a load compressing my spine. I did some light squats this morning with no problems...I just don't think a strength program is effective when squats are limited to 135 lbs or so.
I am thinking of adding DL on my core day, that will be tried Monday. That fits the bill and allows me to have a inelegant lift that I enjoy. Working biceps and triceps yesterday didn't feel like a workout...it felt more like a tune up. Hopefully I can get in a groove and expand the "easy" workouts so I get more out of it mentally and physically.
