Day 4 Training Day

Day 4 Training Day Joy of Altitude I woke up several times during the night choking.  Not figuratively, but actually choking.  I was struggling for air.  Living at sea level has its disadvantages, and is a handicap in this new world.

Day 2 Orientation I went to bed last night around 9:00 pm, I watched a couple episodes of Weeds on Netflix, and posted to my blog. Yesterday's post was cathartic, it was easy to write, and I haven't felt the words come out of my head that smoothly in quite sometime. Who knows if anything…

05/07/2012 Official Weigh-In, Regionals

As of 05/04/12: 237 lbs  Three months ago, if I had seen that number on the scale I would have done cartwheels, thrown a party, or perhaps even done something crazy like send Michelle Bachman a check because even a big heaping pile of dog shit needs a small ray of sunlight. In any case…

A Confession

So I have a confession, one which is embarrassing as hell, yet I somehow have to let it be known because my personal workout integrity is being affected.  I have to begin by saying that I have a relatively high pain threshold, to some degree I think I enjoy the “pain cave”, and find working…
