Sunday

Double header baseball games
I caught 9 innings and pitched one. Holy fuck, I’m not nearly as sore as I thought I’d be. Still took it easy. My right rhomboid is pissed off, which pulls on the tendon in my right elbow, which hurts like a bitch. Other than that, I feel great.

Will try and do some BW stuff in the morning. Have to leave early. Then Wednesday night I’m in a hotel and possibly Thursday too.

Work is incredible right now. It’s like everything is coming together.

Well, life… yesterday, I was informed the office I’ll report to is changing. No biggie. Kind of ironic, actually. For three years, I lived 45 minutes from where my project was. Last year I move to that city. Now, I’ll be living in this city, but commuting 45 minutes the other way. Can’t win for losing. Ha. Secondly, I’ll be opening an office 4.5 hours away from home. I’ll be living there T-TR, sometimes longer. Also, I have to find a commercial office and home to live in while I’m there. Apparently, can’t stay in the Hampton every night. This means a couple of things for me: 1. This will be my last year playing baseball. 2. I’ll be living two lives, essentially. 3. I got a nice raise. 4. I’m going to grow this office to be bigger than our home offices. 5. I’ve got to join a commercial gym while away. I may even join a gasp CrossFit gym.

I’m not quite sure how I feel yet. One side I’m excited. The other, I already know I’m going to put my head down and grind, and end up a workaholic. Despite being a major extrovert to talks to randos, I’ve never been one to have many friends. It’ll be odd to live away from anyone I know for half the week.

Today workout:
Back
Lots of KB Rows, SGHP, Pullups

I’m really trying to strengthen my back. My rhomboids get knotted up and It pulls on my tendon in my elbow. I think it’s just weak rhomboids. Really trying to hit them hard.


#753

Update photos. One month after T-Formation. Gonna keep going. Weights up to 230, but I’m on MK. I think I look leaner in the morning than last month. Will keep hitting cardio for the next month to see what happens.

Two baseball games in 100 degree weather. Pitched 4 innings too. Fuck… I was way dehydrated, despite drinking over 1.5 gallons at the field.

My lat cramped during a pitch and I plunked a guy in the back. Ha. Nothing like an 82mph fastball to the back.
