- Everyone had to know Shane wanted Rick out of the picture. I mean, let's get real. Then they are surprised or "mad" at Rick when he offs Shane in order to save his own life? Someone HAD to see this coming. And his wife is mad why? I'd tell that bitch to get bent. She's pissed off that I killed a man that had every intention of killing me?
- Everyone has the virus. I totally forgot about this from season 1. Oh yeah, they're mad at Rick about that too. I guess he should have told then that, but what difference does it make? Darrell, the only smart guy in the group, is the only one who says anything that makes sense. "He's does alright by me." in response to the closet lesbian saying they should all get away. Get away to where, bitch?
- Herschal's line of "Christ said there would be a Resurrection of the dead......I just thought he had something different in mind." I lost it. Great line.
- Semi anti-climatic for a season ender. But still, the season overall was fantastic.
My Physical Therapist is coming over this week to check me out. She thinks I could have a tear, but needs to have me perform some mechanics first. Either way, I'm doing the meet. I can squat 550 any day of the week with the flu. So if worse comes to worse I'll walk in and squat 550 then go for the 450 bench and 700 pull. I think even with the pain I should be ok for 600. Just depends on how severe it is.
So on Saturday night me and the woman went out for St. Patties Day. We have a spot near the house that has been "our spot" for a long time, but we have not been going out much the last many months and haven't been there. So you can imagine we were pretty shocked upon arrival at our place, to see that it was no longer "our place". It had been renamed and somewhat remodeled inside. All new bar tenders and everything. We still went inside, because we wanted to find out what happened. Apparently the manager of the old place decided he was just done. He closed down a couple of weeks ago and that was that. We couldn't decide if we were going to stay or not, but we had some friends meeting us there so we hung out for a while. We were hungry and the bar tender told us the chicken wings were awesome, so we ordered. And she was right. Best I've ever had. And HUGE. I ended up staying and drinking 9 red velvet cake martinis, which I think might be the best drink I've ever had. We ended up having a great time, but it's still kind of sad to me because that place carried a lot of awesome memories for us with a lot of different people. In some ways it almost feels like an old friend passed away. Maybe I'm just sentimental.
I have finished up the pre-hab/injury and mass building chapters of the book. Boy this thing is going to be long, but packed full of about everything my pee brain has to offer and then some (is that possible?).
After this meet I'm switching gears for a while regardless of the outcome. I'm not going to write about it now, but I'll just say I have some goals I have had in mind for some time that I've never really gotten after. I'm going to make it a priority.
Manning to the Broncos. Wow. What an idiot. If it were really about winning another SB he would have gone, you know, to a team that has a CHANCE at doing that. The Broncos have no shot.
I started back up steady state this morning and will be back on it every morning for a while. With some schedule changes I've not been able to get it in and my weight has slowly been creeping up. So it's time to keep things in check and make sure I keep the steady state in there.
Not a ton to add today. Allergies are already kicking my ass. I also feel like I need more sleep now that the poundages are getting close to what I call "heavy" for me. Need to dial in more sleep starting this week.
Nothing exciting to ask or say, just wanted to extend my thanks for your blog and time.
I always think it's exciting when someone say thanks. Denada.Delete
Paul, i hope you kick ass at the meet!ReplyDelete
Manning to the Broncos may have had something to do with the fact that Denver has >40 mil in cap space and it's already a weak division. Just saying. I don't know if SF had the checkbook for it, but I do agree he would have had a better shot there. Can you imagine him lobbing bombs to Randy Moss all season?ReplyDelete
According to Manning it wasn't about the money. And the AFC West isn't as weak as the NFC West. Mostly .500 teams in the West and the Chiefs should be much improved with Charles, Moeaki, and Berry back.ReplyDelete
Plus playing in cold weather outside?
Just doesn't make sense.
I think he's gay for Elway and it's a lot more about the money than he will admit.Delete
I think it's a lot about the money.Delete
Hi Paul. Great blog and great info. My question is about your steady state, please. When you're being consistent with it, do you do it regardless of any lifting plans for later in the day? Also, have you suffered repetitive strains because of a high volume of cardio and how do you deal with them if so? Good luck with the meet and looking forward to the book. TomDelete
Yes I do it every morning pretty much when I am being consistent.Delete
High volume cardio? I don't know what that would mean. Anytime I decide to up conditioning I do it on a slow basis as to avoid overuse. Some things, like plantar fascitis, can just come on suddenly, but if I feel something achy from conditioning I just cut it out for a while.
Thanks Paul. When I say high volume I know that's a relative term but I guess I mean any daily activity with a meaningful level of exertion. That could be running, lifting or whatever. I was just wondering how you found it sat with your lifting, but I guess you're not killing yourself with it even though its daily. THanks for the reply.Delete
Just wanted to say that was I was inspired enough by your training videos to ditch the straps and belt. There was an instant manliness effect on dead lifting and squatting totally raw, AND my back actually felt a lot better. Spinal erectors seem to be getting worked more, the poundage's are down somewhat but not anything that can't be worked back up to.
I now know that its me totally lifting the weight.
The poundage will eventually come back. When it does, you'll have a better feel for what your body is doing and better overall body control.Delete
I am a Peyton Manning fan, and I think the Broncos are a decent choice. I agree if you want a Super Bowl next season then the 49ers are probably the choice you make, but $$$$$$$$. Honestly, the Broncos could be a few more guys on both sides of the ball away from a potentially Super Bowl contending squad. Shit, did I think the Giants would be in it this year? No.ReplyDelete
A lot of things happen during the coarse of the season. Peyton made some legitimately bad Colts teams look pretty good, and I don't think it will be much different in Denver, if he is healthy.
Paul, I look forward to the day when I can say "I can squat 550 any day of the week with the flu". You are my hero. Not really, but you are pretty bad ass.
Keep up the good work.
The issue with Manning is, the Donkeys are a couple of years away from having a roster capable of beating teams like the Pats and Ravens. Manning isn't enough to get over that hump. And by the time they are, he's retiring. If it REALLY were about going to a team that is close, it'd be the 9ers or even the Chiefs.Delete
Pick better heroes, but thanks for the props. ;-)
Yeah the Season 2 was pretty good, season finale was surprisingly awesome. Just a bit of a shocker to hear that everyone's infected regardless. Wonder how it'll all play out.ReplyDelete
Hoping your hip will heal up, it's always a bitch when a little tweak turns into an injury and throws your whole programming off balance.
Comes with the territory. Hopefully the PT will have some insight.Delete
This will make me come off as a nerd, but I read all the graphic novels of walking dead up until issue 75 or so. If they stick somewhat to what the next arc is, you will shit your pants with excitement. And the anti-climaticness was more of a wink-wink to the comic readers.ReplyDelete
I need to go ahead and read the graphic novels then.....Delete
Any upcoming articles for other websites? Re-read your young, skinny, ADD article, great read and exactly what I needed to hear.ReplyDelete
None in the works. But I'll have some stuff out here this week or next.Delete
