Hannibal and Predator

So barely into my marathon training I’ve decided I need to take a few rest days. Granted I’ve been working out 4-5 times a week for the past 8 or so months, so I think its okay. As I’ve mentioned before I had a long period of time where I anti-worked out, aka I got fat. I’ve been pretty good for a while now, a few years, and my final semester of UVM it was crushing plates with one of my riders of brohan (reference lord of the rings and he’s a bro.) As we became more infamous around the gym we picked up some weight lifting nicknames. I was Hannibal (the cannibal) and he was Predator. When we weren’t benching, squatting or crushing some sort of weight we were fighting the ladies off of our swollen arms. Back to the main point, my body needs some rest, I’ve been tired a lot, I haven’t been extra motivated to workout (yet I have been working out a lot.) I just feel like my body is losing more than its gaining. For the effort I’ve been putting in I would expect better results. Today I will workout VERY lightly (not technically a rest day.) But I’m doing some personal training for my mom so I will do some exercises with her. Tomorrow is the Mardi Gras parade, so I’ll take a break and try to revitalize, rehydrate and pack some protein in.

*I'm the one who doesn't look like a rat-2009 mardi gras parade with predator*

Sounds like Margaritas, Buffalo chicken pizza and heavy beer for me. I guess by rest day I also mean fat gaining day(s)... Hopefully this reverse muscle/endurance building regimine will get me back on top.(of the scale) No no I need to get jacked...oh well.


  1. Rest is always good. Party is always good. Just not too often and moderation with both.

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I usually take at least one rest day a week. It is called my "recovery" day and I usually recover by having some beer...or whatever else is available.

    Sounds like you had a great rest day!
