11-29-11 Squat Training with Chains

Monday Morning Weight Update for 11-14-11

11-11-11 Events Training: 17# Hammer, 25# Braemar, 36# WFD

It was a gloomy day on the field, but I managed to put some good work into my events.  I am still not back to where I need to be, but I am sure I will be at my peak by April for the "meat" of the highland games season.

The World's Sickest Strongest Scientist

I have been sick since Sunday evening.  Today I still feel like my intestines are angry with me, but it's not as bad as the last few days.
