Thank you Mr. Dumptruck man
The finished result is nice, but all that shoveling jacked up my neck and by Sunday night I could barely rotate it. I had already blown off my bike ride that day so I was totally pissed about potentially missing workouts on Monday too. Ultimately, I had to. I woke up Monday with a stiff neck and I knew a swim and weight session was out. I might have been able to pull out that trainer ride, but instead I layed on the couch with a heating pad on my neck watching the Olympics.
Which brings me to my next point. I was so psyched about watching women's hockey. I love the sport, but never get to see games because it's not too big here and we all know women's sports are grossly under appreciated in general. Unfortunately, the games aren't turning out to be so much fun to watch because it's a bloodbath. Team USA and Canada are the only real Olympic contenders so the only game worth watching will be the finals. It's a little worry some that they'll take the sport away until the rest of the world catches up (which is similar to what happened to baseball and fastpitch for 2012).
Going back to my workout schedule.....this week is basically a shitty week for workouts because I'm leaving for Mexico, err I mean Southern CA, on Friday and wont be back until Monday. That basically leaves me with nothing but running. My workout calendar has lots of scratches and re-writes on it. It's NOT pretty!
