Sweet jumping Jesus on a pogostick, I needed this rest day. So yeah, I pulled trips yesterday on my training.
A lot of people asked "Sweet jumping Jesus on a pogostick, WHY?"
Long long ago (10 years or so) I had a friend whom I considered a brother. I did a lot for him, bent over backward for him. Time after time, he took that friendship for granted, stabbed me in the back, stole my shit, tried to assassinate my reputation in the mutual circles we ran in, etc, etc, ad nauseam. This went on for several years, often with me stupidly forgiving him and moving on and him doing it all over again.
Well after some time I put him and our history behind me. Unfortunately we run in the same groups/hobbies and can't help but bump into each other. This latest time he insulted my wife and my children in addition to myself. I have 6 kids, 2 of whom are adopted because their sperm donor ran out on them as babies, one of whom is paralyzed from a nasty accident. He basically said I was a retard for manning up and taking responsibility for my family.
I saw red.
I challenged him to a fight in front of all of his friends, and like an idiot (or not wanting to look like a pussy) he accepted.
So here we are, with the opportunity to take out over a decade of frustration and pure hatred on his carcass before me - I've been training up for an all out MMA style fight in a ring. I've 12 weeks until game time.
So now you know why I'm driven to train so hard.
It helps that I have years of heavy lifting experience behind me, but more on that later. I promise to post the vid after I pound his face into the turf.
With that, I leave you with Wolverdean.
