    It's been too long since I've been to the gym.

    I actually do like it when I'm there. If I can get into my routine, I enjoy myself. Making myself go is the hard part. Here's hoping.

    Just got home from the gym.

    That was an awesome workout. Love the look on people's faces when I roll into the gym in my wheelchair and bust out a massive workout to their amazement lol.

    Well today I found out no more weight lifting

    probably ever again or for a really long time due to a messed up shoulder. So it looks like I am going to have to focus on my running and biking which is good but I will miss that sore arm feeling for sure. No cross fit or insanity type stuff either. I will make it through this...

    A hot shower after a hard work out - the

    feeling is intoxicating. I won't lie, I don't always feel like working out, but that feeling quickly dissipates minutes into first set. When I am done - it is such a high.
