It was nice to get up early and hit the gym. The run was so-so. I’m really trying to work on just putting in mileage here and there and keeping my pace down. It’s so hard for me to hold back. My calves felt tight for most of the run and my knees hurt like a mother#$%& do to the scabs on them. I swear every time I move my leg I tear that shit open. I’m slowly losing my strength : (, it’s now been 3-4 weeks since I was training 3-4 days a week pushing good weights….now I strength train 1-2 times at week at most and I can feel the impact to my upper body. The weight assisted dips and pulls up were difficult, blah……this sucks. On the flip side I do feel a stronger on my run and bike and ultimately that is what is most important. I do miss the iron….

Got quite a few comments about my fucked up knees and black eye. One that will result in a $100 donation. Woot! Woot!
