You’re so vain, you probably think this song is about you…

I once rewrote that song, back in the heat of Teh Bloggar Warz, and never posted it.

I should really find it…


Met with yet another trainer yesterday. I think this one is going to stick.

He actually listened to me. Weird, huh?

Said he didn’t know squat about bipolar/depression after workouts and wouldn’t make any blanket statements. Instead, we’d keep an eye on the workouts and see if we can’t peg down what might be causing it.

We talked about what I could find out about the GORUCK Challenge and my lack of upper body strength. Upper body is definitely going to be an issue - there’s a lot of push ups, buddy carries. a freaking 1,000 pound log, holding team members’ rucks, and let’s not forget running around and doing all that crap while wearing a ruck that weighs near 50 pounds (6 bricks, a hydration bladder, food, possible jacket, extra socks…).

When I told him that my immediate need was getting below 150 pounds so that I only needed to carry four bricks instead of six, he laughed. Told me that was an excellent goal to start with.

Yeah. I like him.

He wants me to mail down a date, but I don’t think I can make any of the ones that are posted… I’ll have to go back through and check them against the Muchachos schedule again.

It’s becoming real. Really real.

Oh. Shit. I’m. Actually. Going. To. Do. This.
