Haven't been doing as much as I'd want to because of this research
paper due Wednesday. Tomorrow is judgement day . . . once this thing is
over, I'm going lifting again. Tomorrow. I promise. Today kicked ass,
though. We did tackle football in PE when the teacher was away watching
the majority of the class play, what's that game again, uh . . . oh
yeah, tennis. Anyways, most of the kids wanted to do that, so the 10 of
us went by ourselves to the field for football. Then many of the kids
playing football wanted to stop, and as soon as the girls left, we did
tackle football (I wanted to do it even with the girls but everyone
else was being a wuss). Then we lost more players who wanted to go talk
or something. Basically, it ended with 4 guys tackling each
other. I didn't go down once. Good warm-up for tomorrow.

I grabbed the rim in basketball today. I am working on my vertical leap
so I can properly, as goes the common saying, "dunk the bajeezus
Workout today consisted of lower-body weight-lifting. Tomorrow is break day from lifting, so I will be doing bag work.

Yesterday, I increased all my weights. I am currently benching 185 lbs
at 4 repetitions. Also, have some new pictures that I took for
comparison to my old ones. I got a little bigger.

Just did cardio today. In PE we were instructed to do four laps around
the track. I did six. And I sprinted, too. Not that I need the extra
cardio; I am trying to bulk, after all. But I can't help it. Anyways,
tomorrow is when the heavy lifting starts again. My finger is a bit
better, though I can't bend it all the way still.
I should also note that I've been practicing push-ups every night
now. I can currently get up to 35, occasionally 40. I will post my
progress as I improve. Because I will improve.

Had a sparring match with George last night - in costume. George was
Xing, the invincible old Chinese kung-fu master. I don't have a picture
of George in costume, but here's Xing's symbol:
Anyways, he wore his old man mask and his Karate uniform. I went as the Terminator.
We had a sparring match in the park in costume and I accidentally
blocked a kick with my fingers. My middle finger is very stiff and I
can't hold things very well in that hand. I'm going to be taking a
break from lifting until Wednesday. I'll be back.
