Entry #147
Today was the last lifting session before the throwdown on Sunday. The
plan is to take it easy tomorrow and Saturday. Relaxing is going to
suck, but I'll do the best I can.

Today, I did deadlifts at 295 lbs for 6 reps. Was pretty tough.
We'll go for 315 lbs next time. I was going insane. I was talking to
the weights and insulting them, and then laughing. Trust me, it works.

"My workouts finished after seven, so I would ride my bike home
after every training session. Because my arms would be so numb from the
training, I often couldn't control the bike, and I'd fall into a
wayside ditch.
It was a fantastic feeling, lying in the ditch with my arms aching." -Arnold Schwarzenegger
