I had aspired to more but wasn’t up to it. The reason, sadly, someone had those flavored tootsie rolls at work. I do like those a bit. So I got me a handful and enjoyed them for about 15 minutes. Then about a half an hour later my stomach started to not like me so much. My belly ached the rest of the day. Too much garbage.

I slacked on getting this posted for nearly a day cause I have been a wee bit busy, in a good way, this weekend. We have a couple more bloggers coming on board and I’m trying to get everything ready. I’m starting to get a process so this should get easier from here.

This weekend I’ll train one day but I’m gonna rest too. I’m feeling burnt. So I’ve got some wild caught, never frozen salmon in the oven, a tall glass of peach sun tea I had today and some Gary Numan on. I’ll be rested up in no time. I thought about kettlebells today, instead I’ll do some roller stuff.

    Gary Numan, eh?

    I’ll be curious to see what your pull-ups are like when you next test them (once per month or so should be enough for a serious test). The next TSC should be good.

    You’d be surprised to see the music that comes outta here: Gary Numan, Goldfrapp, Rammstein and those are just in my wife’s collection.

    Right now, I would guess I am still at 2 solid pull ups. Starting next week though, I will be hitting them three times per week.

    I’ve got a pretty wide-ranging music collection myself. At the moment I’m feasting on ’90s hard rock, as I recently came across an old box of CDs I hadn’t seen for years. Plenty of Soundgarden, Motley Crue and Pantera in there. Nothing too radical.

    Is there much time to take a breather between events at the TSC? What’s the order of things? Just wondering if you’re going to be a little beaten up by the pulls beforehand.

    Either way, you’re definitely on track to smash your previous record. Should be good.

    variety is the spice of life.

    I think each TSC can vary a bit. There will be a different local host this time. The events go: deadlift, pullup. snatch. For me, there seemed to be enough time to not really feel the last event. We had like 6 or 8 guys plus a five minute break between each event.
