Ibuprofen

Tis the drug of choice today. Our group workout last night was boot camp style. This meant a variety of exercises broken up by recovery jogs. We started out with some beach running, then push-ups and spins to work on the feeling of transitions. I think that was followed by leg lifts and a long stretch of lunges. Then there were the tri dips and some football drills like quick feet and squats. This was followed up by some core work and finally some sprints. I actually felt pretty good during the workout and was a little upset that our coach passed on the hills. (Yes I have issues) Of course today is a different story and the legs are complaining and a bit stiff. This is actually fitting since I’ll be in the pool tonight and your legs aren't responsible for much in the water. Plus there is the added benefit of having access to the hot tub afterwards. Hot tub (said in Homer Simpson’s drooling voice)

Just a little fundraising update, after the hugely successful punishment poll and bowl-a-thon I’m up over 75% of my goal. Only a little over $800 to go. woot woot Thanks again to everyone who has made a donation to the cause!

So did you curse my name last night? :-) I don't have to work this weekend now so I will be out for the punishment this weekend. If the winds are to high tonight the instructor said he was going to cancel. IF that is the case then I will be at swimming. later,
