Here's my "to-do" list for today:
In just one week I will be in Florida! This month has flown by, but I sure hope the days in Florida go by soooo slooowwww!! I can't wait to be laying on the beach in the sand, listening to the sound of the waves crashing, and feeling the warmth of the sun on my skin.... To me, it doesn't get much better than that!
So I think my "bigger, stronger, faster" training is going to have to be put on hold for a few more weeks.... After training legs the other day, I realized that my body is just not quite ready for anything even slightly heavy at this point.
My body is telling me to take it easy, and as hard as it is for me to listen, I know I have to. I think barbell squats and deadlifts are definitely out of the picture until this issue I have going on with my hip/butt/back goes away. So I'll go back to my 4 day push/pull upper body split, with some light bodyweight leg stuff in there somewhere, just nothing that loads my spine for now.
Anyways, so yesterday I was checking out at the library, and the librarian says to me, "Got some guns, dude!"(It was a guy, obviously.) That was pretty much the highlight of my day! I know I've gotten to where I want to be when people in random places make comments on my arms. It always makes you feel good to hear something like that. :)
Have a great weekend!!
