Black Friday

Hello all you beautiful people.

This past Friday I decided it was time to give back to the MSU tri club that has given me so much. I decided that my gift would be pain. Every Friday I am leading a workout called Black Friday. It consists of either a strength training workout targeted at running or a 5k race coupled with strength. The goal is to make it hard enough that it would make Mel Gibson denounce Catholicism and force Lance Armstrong to admit to doping. We did our first strength training workout and I got a little over excited. Amazing turnout of about 20-25 masochists. We embarked on our excruciating journey, hand in hand (for team bonding purposes). It was delightful. Our quads and bottoms annihilated, we disbanded to let the muscle damage seep in. The next day was horrible for me. It was comparable to what I felt after Ironman Wisconsin. I could barely sit down. I had to walk down hills backwards. I was as useless as Britney Spears Parenting. Sorry Brit. It has taken 3 days and I am not recovered. Perhaps it was a bit too black so I am going to lighten the hue of the following fridays to a dark grey or charcoal. Still...Watch out for the Spartans. I going to turn us all into monsters.

I must have had my own Black Friday last week too! I did some killer lunges and weights. This left me in major pain for 3 days. What am I thinking!?

I'm just picking up the weights for the first time in my off-season, and I feel your pain!

Interesting post..! The most recommended method to get fit and healthy is to use natural weight loss.
