Have passed since I last posted. I went for 4 mile runs on both Wednesday and Thursday, but found that my ankle was a bit too sore to keep the streak alive on Friday, so I took it as a rest day. I also continued on the Julien Greaux Get Ripped, Stay Big weight training plan Wednesday went really well. 5 circuits of 1 set of 10 reps each on bench press, squats, and deadlifts. Having been a runner for quite a few years, the leg lifts have never caused me any problems. I used to love lifting weights to and took a special joy from being able to bench press almost twice my weight for several years. Now, I’m fat and out of shape and can’t even lift my own body weight anymore, but that will be changing soon. The Thursday workout plan called for an ab workout, which my body desperately needs, but after just barely starting into it I could hardly move. Needless to say, it was called off.
Yesterday as I said was a rest day for me, today we are heading to see Disney on Ice in a short while then when I get back I’ll get my workout in. I’m going to go for another 4 mile run, and then do the Julien Greaux Upper Body Circuit.
I have finally almost finished reading The Greatest Game Ever Played: Harry Vardon, Francis Ouimet, and the Birth of Modern Golf“>, which is awesome. Not just the story of the golf game, but more about how to approach life. I’m not saying that everything in this makes sense, but talk to anyone that plays golf and they’ll tell you that in many aspects the game of golf emulates life. It’s always an ebb and flow, and you have to be willing to appreciate the good and not dwell on the bad.
Make every day great,
