Remember this post: my-flip-flop-broke-in-the-shower-the-gym-today.html? Well, I cobbled the broker one together with string for a bit, because it was hard to find time to get to shopping for a new pair. It looked very sad.
I finally got to shopping this past weekend, and.... it's kind of hard to find flip-flops in Canada in October. Oops.
Anyway, rather than go to a tonne of places, after my one mall pass-through, I reluctantly picked up a pair of these; in a really weird green. I was kinda disappointed beacuse they were more expensive than what I thought I'd get (just a regular flip flop for the shower at the gym = <$10). And these were more like $30.
Well.... guess what?! I used them this AM and they are the most comfy thing ever. More comfy than bare feet! Love , love, love them!
We tested squats and deads today. Did squat testing Saturday too, but we shall not discuss it.
Anyway: Jerimiah let me try his knee sleeves. And it felt really good. 155# squat, but here's the good part: TO DEPTH!!! Needless to say: I just bought a pair.
And deadlift: 185#.
Add that up to Bench from a week ago, and we are at 450#. 52# off his BAM (bare-ass-minimum) for the July 9th meet. You'll notice I switched from we/our to HIS on that one. I think he has a bit of over optimism there. Anyway.... it's closer than I thought I'd be by now, so... maybe the truth is somewhere in the middle, as usual.
Testing again Wednesday, and then I travel and am gymless for 2 weeks!
Believe it or not, it's taken me a few days to relax from the "I got my CPU Card" hype of March 4th. At this rate, I still have to :
I gotta get a grip. Or maybe, just maybe....this is why I have so much fun. I am made up of mostly feelings, after all. Why not throw some more on the fire! :)
Dear Asics; I really like these shoes. Like; really, really, really. Dear Santa; I have been SO good this year. Maybe these would be great for lifting. I don't know... because I can't FIND them. I guess when they said limited edition, they really meant it. Is it wrong to long so deeply, for just a pair of shoes? Tokidoki Onitsuka
