Friday Before Labor Day Weekend
I've been really hitting the gym a lot this summer. Most weeks I work out at least four times, and I run two miles each morning before work, and do two hundred weighted crunches (with a thirty pound ball on my chest). I'm actually a little shocked at the amount of definition I show in the picture above. But, then I'd been wrestling for about an hour when this photo was taken, and that is a lot like any work-out - it really pumps you up.
The weekend promises to be sort of iffy. I have a funeral to attend tomorrow. Sunday my relatives are coming over and I will be grilling out for them. Otherwise, I intend to do a lot of writing. I'm in the middle of writing the first draft of my second novel. I'm hoping to have it completed by next summer. But there are a lot of things that might get in the way: work will be very intense over the next year, and I'm volunteering to help coach my old high school's wrestling team. Now you know why it takes me a day or two to post sometimes!
Anyway, have a great weekend everyone! I hope you get to spend time with loved ones and friends, and I hope you get to wrestle. And if you do, wrestle...hard!
