Wrestling Night is tonight!
43 min jog 3.77 mile
3 minutes of wrestling. I know that does not sound like a lot. Just 3 minutes. Those three minutes were an eternity. I forgot about the nervous feeling I would get before stepping out onto the mats. I forgot the feeling of standing before a crowd. I forgot the feeling of locking up with an opponent and wrestling. All for three minutes that felt like an hour.
It was a great three minutes. My opponent was 10 years younger than me. He outweighed me by a few pounds. He was the better wrestler. He won. He deserved it. He could have pinned me twice. We went the full 3 minutes though. I think that was good for both of us. We each made a new friend today.
He is on a weight loss journey of his own. He might stop by and check this blog out. I hope he does. I also hope he will share some of what he has been doing as he is working towards getting in better shape.
After the adrenalin had worn off and I was sitting there cooling off I started to feel some soreness in my neck and chest muscles. NOT INJURY! Just some soreness. I fell like I did a regular workout tonight. But it was only three minutes. Those three minutes have done more for me than than my last 30 workouts have. I feel re-energized. I know I need to be pushing more in the gym. My intensity needs to crank up some. I have become complacent with my workouts. I am working out like I am maintaining myself instead of developing a better me. Those three minutes were exactly what I needed to to gain the clarity I have drifted from. I got good feeling about my next few weeks in the gym.
I stepped on the scale to see I was 258.5 lbs today. I was glad to see that. 254 is right around the corner.
