Gym Dunce: Sunday, July 18th

I wanted to Swim on Saturday.  Don't ask me why, but for some reason swimming was really important to me on Saturday.  I wouldn't even consider lifting or doing anything else.  It is not like I've become hooked on swimming or anything.  I enjoy my time in the water, but I'd much rather be running if I had the choice.  But Saturday, swimming was all that I could think about.  However, there was a constant rumbling of thunder all afternoon, which frustrated me even more because it wouldn't rain.  It would just thunder ever so often, making it impossible to swim because the Y won't let into the water for 20 mins after thunder is heard--Nazis!  I even went there once and just so I could make sure that they weren't letting people swim.  Honestly, I am not sure why I even bothered to confirm it with my own eyes -- really -- like they were going to let people swim just this one time as long as they promised not to tell.  Anyway, around 4:30 the sky opened up and the rains started, which allowed me to put my mind at ease and give up on swimming for the day.

However, I had planned to lift on Sunday, so the thunder storms and my refusal to let nature alter my plans left me with a dilima.  Should I swim on Sunday, Lift, or do both?  I thought that doing both was just stupid, so that's what I did.  Why?  Because sometime we are all stubborn dumb asses, and apparently this was my weekend to shine.  I decided that for safeties sake that I should swim first, lest I drown because my arms were to tired to swim after lifting.

The swimming was no problem, but the lifting truly sucked causing me to curse my jackass self nearly the whole way through, particulerly during the chin-ups and the Alternating Dumbbell Curls.  The underside of my left shoulder in the back right around my arm pit was killing as I did the chin-ups, my form was sloppy as hell during the ADC's.  I had to stop several time to rest so that I could correct my form.  I am really lucky that I didn't hurt my back.  Truly, I wish that I could say that I'll never do this again, but sometimes . . . we all just get a touched in the head and act the fool.
