I woke up very excited this morning and headed to the gym. God, it felt so good! Several people asked where I'd been and I had to stop and explain about my illness. They wished me well as I headed back to the squat rack and completed my workout.
The rest of the day was a blur. I'm dealing with some personnel issues and that is always draining. These particular issues also involve attorneys. It is an odd position to be in, but necessary.
I learned today that I really do love the iron. I can't imagine ever giving it up entirely. I am planning to hit an amateur body building show in 2 weeks and Jay Cutler will be guest posing. I plan to show him what its all about

Squat goal for this Mission has been accomplished! I had aimed for 350 x 1 and I got it. Damn that felt good. The DOMs is already setting in and I know I'm going to be fried just like my first wave loading workout, but I'm so happy with my workout. I came back after my layoff stronger than I left.
Thought for the Day:
Overcome the mental and the physical will follow.
Until tomorrow…GET BACK TO LIFTING!
