I ended the week with a decent workout. The douche-guy showed up, but without the douchette. I thought he was a little quieter without her around, but I could of just been more focused on my stuff. Anyways next weekend is when the gym opens back up on the weekends, so I’m going to have to start thinking about how I want to move things around to lift 4 days a week.
Today wasn’t a bad lift at all. I’m still tweaking what I’m doing, but I feel like things are starting to get ironed out. O and the idiots are no longer there in the mornings. I had a feeling that the only reason they started coming to the gym I use was because the student’s gym trims their morning hours back between semesters. So I’m guessing they work on campus and have access to the staff and faculty gym, but they prefer the students gym where the douche can show off and make a scene……..
From The Urban Oil Fields of Los Angeles, one of 24 photos. An oil well pumps next to yard containing junked hearses and ambulances near Signal Hill in Long Beach, California, on May 29, 2003. The Signal Hill Oil Field, now known as the Long Beach Oil Field, had the world’s highest oil production per acre by the mid-twentieth century. Hundreds of companies and individuals became rich on minute leases, some locations so close that derrick legs overlapped. New housing and stores are now being built among operating oil wells.

I was walking down the hall and it dawned on me that I had been here 4 full years. Then the realization hit me that I am a 5th year now……..That just kind of blew me away.
Not a terrible lift considering the circumstances. I was pretty restless last night and kept waking up throughout the night. Around 5am I started waking up every couple minutes because I could hear thunder and I was worried I wouldn’t be able to bike in. At about 5:25 I said screw it and got up (only 5 minutes early), threw my clothes on, ate my snack, packed my bag, brushed my teeth, and got my butt onto campus.
The best part of this all is that I woke up with a migraine, but since I was hustling to get in and beat the rain and lighting I just kind of ignored it. So I went in and lifted, and honestly I started feeling better while I was doing bench and squat. Then things turned shitty when I was finishing up the other stuff. By the time I was stretching I felt like throwing up and I was a bit dizzy. But being that I am stubborn I decided I am gonna stick this out and stay on campus and work.
Well after eating a small breakfast and drinking copious amounts of coffee I am starting to feel a bit better. Today might just turn into a clean the lab and go home day. Focusing on building this program is a little much still. Meh either way the lab needed to be cleaned since the 1st year grad students are here (and of course we make the lab look pretty when the come interview the group).
Not a bad workout, though I need to get my bench numbers up to where they were. Luckily the gym will once again be open on the weekends (since the semester is starting soon) so I can start doing a 4 day lifting program.
Apparently I’ve decided to focus on lower body (since I’m doing leg stuff all 3 days) , which is kind of funny because the loud douchey guy has never done lower body once since we’ve been seeing him. Now he may be doing it on other days, but they fact that he wears in pants every day and that he seems to focus solely on the upper body makes me think legs day is more of a monthly thing…….
LBJ signs the Economic Opportunity Act, 50 years ago today.
"Today for the first time in all the history of the human race, a great nation is able to make and is willing to make a commitment to eradicate poverty among its people."
-President Lyndon B. Johnson
The Act was designed to provide education, job training, health and employment counseling, and neighborhood improvements. Programs included Job Corps, Volunteers in Service to America (VISTA), Legal Services, Upward Bound, and Head Start.

No gym douches this morning! It was quite nice and today was not a bad workout. I need to get back into doing my rotator cuff stuff because my shoulder is killing me at softball.
The one thing I am looking forward to when class begin here is that the gym I use will be open on the weekends again. I think I’ll start lifting on the weekends again, to get me up to 4 days of lifting and 2-3 days of tennis/racquetball.
