I got up at 4 a.m. and did my usual thing. However, since I had a meeting, I decided to hit a new location of 24 Hour Fitness. I had seen the cars parked as I drove past on the freeway several days in a row and it looked pretty inviting. Because I had a meeting this morning and this gym is on the way to that meeting, I figured it would be perfect. What a mistake!
I sat there with 10 other people for 40 minutes. The gym (which is supposed to be open for 24 hours a day) was closed! It had a sign saying the person would be back at 4 a.m. and it was not almost 5 a.m. I finally gave up, figuring I'd hit the gym later in the day. That never happened. Thus, the plan is modified and I will lift tomorrow and Saturday instead of today and Friday. Mark one workout off my accountability log!
Not too much else to share today. I'm preparing some questions for my mystery guest. We plan on the podcast lasting about 30 minutes. If you have any general bodybuilding type questions to ask, please post them in a comment and I'll see what I can do about getting them into the podcast.
