Day 15 - Light Day
"Daniel, You have a case of the dumbs."
That was the way I ended a phone call last night. I was talking to a good friend who has seen this circuit performed many times. He was checking in to gauge my progress. Every question he asked felt like climbing out of mental quick sand. It took me several seconds to form a single sentence. "Dude you are so slow." He kept saying. "You went way to hard. You are so F'd." He said while chuckling at my pain. This confirmed my fears. My future was looking very bleak.
Waking Heart rate: 105
Anabolic and catabolic hormones combining in a fugue of highs and lows turning me into a moody teenager. Am I going to start listening to Alanis Morissette again? Will all my notebooks be covered in artistic S's? When does this ride end? I want off...
My phone is going off. I look down to see the name Louie Simmons blasted across my home screen. This was the highlight of my day. We talked about getting strong. Getting strong is my favorite thing, like ever.
Now with enthusiasm for fuel, I am feeling Danimal again. I immediately start mapping out my next block of training. So excited to pick up something heavy.
Thought of the Day:
The song "Take me out to the Ballgame" is sung almost exclusively by people who are already at a ballgame.
