Workouts 2 and 3 for 4/6/07Well, I played 9 holes with my neighbor Mike . . . we just played the executive 9 at High Cedars golf course. Thankfully we couldn't get on the real course cause by the 3rd hole, I remembered why I never wear my frickin' golf shoes! Now I've got two bloodied ankles . . . lovely.
And for workout three today . . . I realized why it's probably time to get rid of the motorcycle. As much as I don't ride it, the battery was dead this afternoon when I tried to start it. So I jump started it with my car and rode it around for awhile. Thinking that would be enough time to charge the battery so when I got back on it would start right up. Nope. Wrong again. So here I sit at my office after trying to "bump start" the motorcycle. (basically running around a parking lot with the bike in gear, clutch in, getting to speed and dumping the clutch to compression start it.) My buddy Marcus is going to bring some jumper cables down and we'll get er' going again . . . then I'll park it in the garage and work on getting another new battery for it.
Gonna be a long day . . .

OK, so last night I blew my chances for being 329 by Saturday . . . our neighbors wanted to go out to dinner, so we went. They wanted to go to Outback Steakhouse. I haven't been there in years . . . (now I remember why, their steaks taste like kangaroo meat) but it is the land of the Bloomin' Onion after all. So half a bloomin' onion, a couple pieces of bread, a salad, baked potato and a steak later, here we are with most of the past 1.5 weeks of hard work gone . . . . . . It's all good though, I'm going to have days like that, the important thing is to get back up the next day and start again, which I did.
I didn't go as hard as I normally would have because my neighbor Mike and I are heading down to High Cedars at 9:30 to hit the little white ball into 9 holes. SWEET! First golf outing of the year! So I'll get a fair amount more of exercise for 3 hours walking around a golf course. (yeah, I know 9 holes shouldn't take 3 hours, but have you seen me play?)
