Happy birthday to me! Happy birthday to ME! Happy birthday to MEEEEE, happy birthday to me!!!
Today I turn 39 years young. Only one year away from 40. Funny, I don't feel a day over 21. I have so much to be grateful for in my life - a great marriage to my beautiful wife, who also happens to be my best friend in the whole world, a beautiful 22-month old son who everyday amazes me with the things he does even with the uphill battle he struggles with everyday, a job that I enjoy going to, and spend way too many hours at, great friends, a healthy mind and body and a new found passion for kettlebells.
I am looking forward to my 39th year of life. I might not have said that last year at this time. But even with all of life's ups and downs, good things have resulted and I look forward to more, even if this roller coaster continues.
Anyway, we'll be going out to lunch today with some family and next weekend we'll do dinner at a Brazilian BBQ restaurant not too far away. We had planned for this today, but one of my sister's is sick, so we'll wait till she's better. I too am struggling with an annoying dry cough. It's been interrupting my sleep the past few nights no matter what I take for it. I just hope it doesn't impede my Snatch Workout tomorrow. This cough also caused me to miss my scheduled workout on Friday. I needed the sleep. So I tried to make it up today with some Presses.
A very quick, get something in workout today:
Military Press: 16kg - 5/5
Clean & Press: 24kg - 3 Ladders with 3 Rungs
The 24kg felt pretty good today. Just need to make sure I continue to stretch out the forearms and work the elbows with Z.
Oh yeah, one of my gifts today was a speed jump rope. Looking forward to incorporating that into my sessions once the snow is behind us!
