I went to bed on time, but wound up sleeping until almost 7:00 AM. I’ve got nothing to do today, so an extra hour of sleep is no big deal. Loki tried to get me up at 5:30, but when I rolled away from his licks he apparently agreed that sawing a few more logs wasn’t such a bad idea.
Taking a couple days off from training has helped some of those nagging aches and pains that I’ve been ignoring. None of the minor issues I’ve been dealing with are completely gone, however, so I think the right thing to do is to go ahead and take a full week off from training. As much as I love lifting, a week off every few months always does wonders for me. I’ll probably come back even stronger.
Lisa and I both worked yesterday, so today we’re taking the whole day off. I’m going to go get some work done in the gardens this morning before it gets too hot (by the way, I’ve been adding new pictures to my 2009 Fall Garden album on Facebook if you want to check them out), then we’re going to watch a couple of movies and later this afternoon I’ll be playing in the Sunday 1/4 Million poker tournament on PokerStars. We might go out to eat tonight, or maybe I’ll just make another stir fry! Man, that stir fry was so good… I’ve been craving it all week long!
I’m going to get outside now, it’s already heating up pretty fast. I hope you have a fantastic Sunday!
