Yeah tell me about it!! This violates all my vacation principles.....go south in the winter and go north in the summer!!
Boston's my home town. I came up last week to help my mom through her cataract surgery. Of course that got cancelled because of the blizzard, so we re-scheduled for this week and I took another week off from work.
The good news is there's a real nice gym less than a quarter mile from her house, so at least I have something to do besides shoveling snow off her car!! 783 days ago
Yeah trainer's suck! Granola guy is pretty good. I work out with him once a week on Sunday mornings and he has me do all sorts of weirdo mobility moves that actually help, but just wear me out.
Next competition is at the end of October. I'm training for it, but I'm seriously thinking about waiting till the one after in February. 3 months seems like a long time to train for an event, but it's actually kind of short.
Besides I'm seriously digging the kettlebells. I've run marathons, have lifted over 1000 lbs, so the big thing in Kettlebells is to get a Strongfirst Certification from this crazy Russian dude named Pavel Tsatsouline. It's a series of timed drills doing Double KB Swings, Double Cleans, Double Press, Double Front Squat, Snatches, and Turkish Get-ups. For Men's Masters (over 50 dudes) you do these with 20Kg KBs.....I think it would really suck....so I may shoot for it sometime in the next year or two!
