Well, I was supposed to lift Friday. I say supposed to, as I did some attempts IN THE WARMUP ROOM. My damn hip shit out to the point that I made it about 6 warmup reps in before deciding that it wasn't going to happen. Hit 710, which was 170lbs under my opener, and the fact it nearly brought tears to my eyes kind of made the decision for me. Kind of sucks, but what can you do? Alva and some of the other dudes noticed i looked like shit and was favoring it heavily, so I decided that the 100 bucks I spent to weigh in and do some reps in the back was value enough for me. Hell with it.
After talking to some guys, it seems that this is an injury that is going to take a few months of no squatting to heal. Time to take a step back, look at some things, see what I can do, and get after it. Once I have the plan 100% figured out Ill post it up. Plan for now is simple, get healthy and get after it. Going to spend some time figuring out what I can and cant do and go from there. Planning on a trip to see my buddy Mike Robertson soon as well, as he is a genius with these things.
On the positive side, Claire had an awesome first meet. She totaled 660, which, after the abomination that Thursday into Friday morning was is impressive. Rather than go on a tirade about the "meet hotel" and the miscommunication about the weighins, Ill just say that we had a good weekend, and she was happy with her first meet.
Definitely had a good time seeing old friends and making new ones. Went to outback 49873 times over the weekend because Carroll is on Baller status. Got to hang out with him and Ria, Josh McMillan and all 485 of his training partners and their groupies, Caslow, ALL of OBB EXCEPT Jo Jordan, and others of our ilk. Met Kiefer too. Hes a smartass. Fits right in.
Want to say thanks to Alva for driving 3 hours and staying in a shit hole hotel to watch me do some warmups, Danny and Chuck V. for letting me come out and train, LeighAn for some anti inflammatory type stuff, Claire for letting me run around like an idiot all weekend, and Dave and Jim for all of the help and support, as well as you guys reading this and giving me an outlet to make an ass of myself, talk some training, and bitch about how awful I am. I appreciate it more than you guys realize. Thank You.
