cline Taking a Knee (srsly) and Shooting the Shit


Recommended Posts

Good heavy lifting last night!!! Got out of work early for the weekend and got more time at the gym!!

Best part was a certain type of row was programmed. Last time, I had to stop them bc my ribs hurt so bad. This time...no pain!!!! That felt so great. Probably safe to say the ribs are healed. Even racking weights doesn't hurt any longer!!! Working through a different issue now...sigh. But working away.

No Muay Thai today bc BUCKEYE FOOTBALL!!! So today is planned rest day (but loads of walking).

Go get 'em BUCKEYES!!!

'Cause all I wanna do is go the distance. Nobody's ever gone the distance with Creed, and if I can go that distance, you see, and that bell rings and I'm still standin', I'm gonna know for the first time in my life, see, that I weren't just another bum from the neighborhood.

Capri pants!!!! GAH!  My only issue is that it's all women wear.  What's wrong with shorts?  What's wrong with track pants?  Why ONLY capri pants?  WHY?  And they do not hit at the most flattering part of the leg..... 

 

Sometimes is fine but why are capri pants the ONLY pants women wear?  Please make it stop.

Traveled out of town this weekend!  Whoo hoo!  so I missed Muay Thai Saturday (boo) but got in a lot of walking and a lot of talking to random people I met randomly.  Ha ha.  I was NOT wearing capri pants.

 

Sunday went to a super duper awesome globo gym.  Go ahead haters... hate on it.  When I called to ask about free standing squat racks at one gym, I got "ummm.. yeah... we have one" and I tried to clarify and gave up.  I called globo gym and dude quicky and enthusiastically says "YES!  Matter of fact... WE HAVE THREE!".  All the love for you my friend. 

 

So I dragged spousal unit off to the amazing globo gym.  I would join this place in a heartbeat if they built one in my city.  *sigh* Vacation romances are always like that....

 

Anyhow... I worked moderate squats for sets, deads to heavy reps and then deads for volume (multiple sets), bench to heavy reps and then bench for volume (multiple sets) and then 4 assistance exercises.  BAM! 

 

Then we did some shopping and hung out. Got insulted by shopgirl who thought for sure I was a size L (I was not).  My friends met us and we talked sailboats and dogs all night. 

 

Came home and went to ADVANCED MUAY THAI!  SQUEEEEE only 8 people were there!  All the awesome.  Coach had a brilliant idea that we should start class with:  5 min kick ladder, 1 min rest, 5 min kick ladder.  So you kick only right body kicks for 5 mins.  1 for you, 1 for partner, 2 for you, 2 for partner, etc.  Using pads so you kick HARD.  GAH!  5 mins same leg goal is AMAP.  Then left leg.  GAH!  Dying.  Oh and it's 90+ degrees out and super humid.  Then we worked counters and I LOVE working counters.  So much winning.  Coach asked me to stay for the second class.  Ha ha ha ha... NO.

 

Going lifting soon.  SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE  (but it's no globo gym... sigh... I love the globo gym)

Based on my observations, capris are strictly spring wear here in Minnesota, shorts for summer and yoga pants year round. For me, once it's Memorial Day, I only wear shorts, except for weddings and funerals, until school starts again.

You squeed on the phone when he said that, didn't you?  I totally can see you squeeing over that.

 

(Though to be fair, I would probably also squee over that.  I really should try to find a gym near my parent's place one of these days...)

I believe I expressed my undying love and willingness to have the man's children.  Spousal unit is okay with that. 

 

Don't you just feel sorry for spousal unit?  Go away on long weekend and wife is looking around for a squat rack.  Meanwhile, he's killing time doing random stuff. 

 

me:  what are you doing now?

SU:  sled

Me:  now what?

SU:  shoot baskets

Dunno when I last updated.  Blah.  I've been lifting and fighting with people.  All good stuff.

 

You don't care about the lifting.

 

Here's last night's Muay Thai:  checking kicks and returning with a great combo.  So we worked defending punches and working the leg check (which is how all the guys have been breaking legs lately... lol).  Totally banged knees with my partner - big big contusion.  BWAAA HAAA He says "welp, that will be a big bruise" and I said "welp, add to the other ones.  Okay?"  Him:  "okay!".  I haven't worked with him in a while b/c he's been out so I was happy to see him.  '

 

Basically we threw a punch combo and opponent kicked us, we checked it and then tossed back a cross, liver shot, and cut kick (or I did a fade away sometimes).  We did some clinch sparring with random people and one dude decided the best way to do that was to cover my face with his glove.  WHAT?  I had to tell him to stop as that is not an effective clinch technique.  LOL.  But I worried about abrasions b/c I had big meeting with pres today. Facial abrasions from clinch gone wrong is hard to explain.

 

I'm going to train in a few.  SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE 

 

Tomorrow, I support SU on an event he's doing.  We've decided to spend the night there.  I've been promised nudity, ass slaps, and beer so obviously, I'm kind of excited.  Who cares about supporting SU when there are ass slaps.

You're either talking about sex or SU's event is a strip club.

Mmmm okay then

Tonight was heavy squats, work sets at max push press, tons of heavy benching which continues to go so well, assistance work. Finish w 40 pushups and I don't mean half ass bend elbows only ones.

And I did it all in my lifting shoes. Go ahead mock me.

Hung w bros, chatted up a guy I'm going to squat w and another dude I'm going to lift with. Good night.

And not sex and not strip club (ewwww).

Super spartan. SU is a spartan headband wearing dude.

I will yell loudly, ass slap, and drink.

In fact, this ass was slapped by a cline.

It was glorious!  (The slap.  Not the ass, clearly.)

 

Honestly, my first thought when I first saw this picture was imagining Ska thinking "Oh, she did not wear those shoes with that top."

 

Because I'm a horrible person.
