Back on the grind

My one day off came and went yesterday. All to quickly for my taste, but the body seemed to really appreciate the day off. Today I was back at the pool and had an ok workout. Swimming has never been my forte and it will always be my weakest event. Hence why I try and spend as much time as possible in the pool. After the pool I did a circuit in the weight room. All in all it was a good day as far as training went. It might have been a weee bit getter if I hadn't drank as much as I did last night. :)

Poker was a blast as usual last night. Thing kicked off around 8:30 PM and we didn't stop until about 2:00 AM. My chip stack was like a roller coaster last night. I'd be up big, then down big and back and fourth. I ended up about 20 bucks, which I was happy with. Twas a good time hanging out with the fellas while having a drink or two. They want to go out tonight as well, but I'll have to wait and see what the vibe is. I might have to tone it down a bit tonight with another spin class scheduled for tomorrow.

It's always a juggling act when it comes to training and the social life. I do my best to keep them in balance, but every once in a while one side wins out more than the other...

ahhh... the delicate balance of training and social life...

good luck. I've been trying to master it for quite a while now, and I still don't feel like I've gotten the hang of it.
