First Day Back


Well it’s my first day back to work in a week and my first 4 day trip in like 2 and a half months. I have to show at 8:10 am but I wanted to get a workout in before work. I set my alarm for 4am and only pressed snooze 1 time. Since I got my new mountain bike I have been neglecting to gym and boy did I feel that.
I did a full body workout which kills me. I like split routines but generally don’t lift enough to do them. I got a long day ahead of me but feeling good now that I started my day off right.


Signed Off for Another Year


I just got home from recurrent training in Salt Lake City.  This is a 3 day event once a year that is nerve-racking because your job depends on it.  It went very smoothly due to a great Captain Simulator partner.  It’s basically 1 day of ground training and 2 days on Simulator training and evaluation.  After we passed we went to the locale bar to have a celebration drink.  Unfortunately the kitchen was closed but they offered chips and salsa.  They were really good chips and salsa.  I was so tiered that I went straight to sleep and didn’t even remember to brush my teeth.  This morning after brushing I spit into the sink and it was red.  I was like WTF.  It was the red food coloring the chips.  That is discussing.  We don’t need food coloring in anything especially tortilla chips.

I got home early and although I was exhausted I managed to go to the gym and then go out and read by the pool for a bit.  Here is a review of the NEW Muscle Milk Cake Batter ready to drink recovery drink.

I am now relaxing on the couch watching the Travel channel and looking forward to some beverages and hanging out with friends tonight.


Workout and Pipeline Porter


It was a great day!  Went to 24 Hour Fitness and worked out.  I was actually impressed to see one good Trainer.  Yesterday I was at different one and witness the worst set of Personal Trainers ever.  People watching is what gets me through these workouts.  I am normally scanning for the hot half-naked girls but most of the time I go at 10-11 am so that’s not exactly what I get to see.  I am normally looking at the oldest or biggest person in spandex.  Next it was time to relax.  I was hoping to go Mountain Biking but I was so tiered.  I choose to take the dogs for a 2 mile walk instead.

I have been working on some obedience issues with my Olde English Bully Sampson.  I think that the reading I have done is actually paying off.  He is being much better behaved during our walks and at home.  We walked about 2 miles and both Paddington and Sampson did great.

Now I am sitting dow and enjoying a Pipeline porter from Hawaii while writing this and watching at my awesome reef tank.
