Steamy

It’s in the 80’s already with humidity and dewpoints in the 70’s which makes for a very steamy, Wisconsin morning. For those of you who know me, you know that means it’s an inside day. More unpacking. Goody.

Bigg and I will train tonight. I need to squat and try to pull after hurting my back and hip in a freak “thing” while deadlifting last week (during a warmup pull.) Yup, that’s the explanation. One of those “things”. Aging sucks. I don’t know who out there has had back tweaks or injuries, but it’s scary and not fun. It pretty much shuts you down physically and messes with your head enough to look at all of the horrible things that could happen if it doesn’t get better.

But it is getting better and I’m very thankful for that.

The picture above is from Yellowstone, of course. If you haven’t been there, go. It’s more fun if you take your Auntie and Uncle and favorite cousins but if you can’t, just go. We camped for a week and it was one of the best weeks I’ve ever had. Before you go, read this. It is a must read to make sure you come out of the park intact.
