Has it been over a week since I posted? It has been a whirlwind of a week and the coming four weeks should prove to be even more hectic. I have spent only a few days doing light workouts with the wrestling team. My knees and shoulders have been really weak, loose and sore. I was hoping that this time not hitting it so hard would give me a chance to recover. This morning I did the warm ups with the kids and I thought that my knees were going to collapse or buckle, whatever they do. I haven’t been totally dormant; I have wrestled two days and light on the third. That didn’t go to bad.
The past several weeks have been crazy. My kids were out of school and my son was home from college. TJ my oldest boy left a little early back to Utah on Tuesday to compete in a crossfit competition. He texted me while I was at a wrestling tournament and told me he placed 2nd. After all of the competing he has done in high school and college he can’t give up the competition. I have been to a dual meet, a girl’s tournament and a varsity tournament in the past week. Now all of the kids are back in school and I started school myself. I have done that back to school thing to learn a new skill and have 12 units left to get an AS in computer graphic arts. Maybe I’ll continue on to a BA in graphic arts, I’ve always like that.
The next few months will be very exciting. I have 12 units in college, I’m still training for the Veteran’s National Wrestling Tournament, I’m in the thick of coaching the wrestling season, I have tournaments every weekend until March, and I still have to run my business and make a living. I don’t know that I would have taken such a load last year. Could it be that my training has boosted not only my physical metabolism but also my mental capacity? I would ponder on that but I’m too busy. It will be a challenge.
Over the next few months I may not post everyday as I had done in the past until I get a better feel for my work load. Life was so much easier with just training and work. I’ll keep you posted on my work, school, wrestling and I won’t forget my training because…..It’s not superhuman strength, its old man strength.
