All Out Attack


#1942

Yeah, well I was just telling one of my friends at the gym about. He thought he knew the guy and said he was probably fishing for juice. I guess I didn’t consider that.

Fishing for juice…not bad for being a little tired…as well as the usual stuff. You have a full life.


#1946

Well busy anyway. I’m looking forward to next month, so that school will be over.


#1947

Zerchers for the win!


#1948

What, no deference to a 545 dead from pins?

I learned a very important lesson at work today. It’s a bad idea to eat a chili dog at work. It is even worse to eat two chili dogs at work.


#1950

That lesson probably involves a rest room.


#1951

Good guess. Things were made worse when my wife said chili dogs were for dinner. I took a pass.

I need to stop going to work. Today was a birthday potluck for one of my employees.


#1953

“Sir, do you have any advice of how to avoid B-Day potlucks at work?”

“Stop going to work.”

“That’s BS, I love Chucky Cheese…”

That’s funny.


#1954

I know. I wish it was a better excuse to avoid work.

I am experimenting with using bands one week for one rep and then using the same weight the next week with no bands for two reps. The bands are a bitch as the weight gets heavier.

Messing around with hand position and speed.

I hope you’re still considering the hard core gym.


#1958

It’s still a plan.

Good. Maybe the owners there will sponsor you in a meet.

I’m maxed out on vacation time, so I’m being "forced’ to take two days off a month. Since I’m off today, I was able to get together with some of my old 7:00 AM gym buddies.

We leave tonight for tennis. My daughter’s team is playing a couple of Seattle schools Friday and Saturday. We’ll also take the girls to a Mariners game Friday.

I normally bench on Saturdays, but I moved it up since I’ll be out of town. I could really feel it in my shoulders.
