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.
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.
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.
