Training 8/21/13

Back to it after an unplanned break because of poor planning, stress, and business.  Didn’t feel like I woke up, so a pretty lame session today.  The positive – 5 pounds more than last time.  It adds up, even when it’s a bad day

Felt awesome today, even with a little bit of a lack of sleep (my old dog woke us up in the middle of the night to barf on the bed).   Also, met a guy who asked if I competed (flattering) and might turn out to be a training partner.  I haven’t had a solid training partner since my first training partner 15+ years ago.  I’m not a great partner because of my schedule (every 8 days and flexibility built in for work), but it would be nice to have someone to work with on form and equipment and such.  He seems about my strength level, so that’s good.  Nice fella, too.

From The Playbook

Al-Qaeda is on a path to defeat.

Maybe we should consider not spying on Americans, adjust “security”, and threaten to defund some of those efforts.

Uh-oh!  Terrorists!

And the American public keeps falling for it.
