Friday The 13th

I can’t say that today was a day of bad luck. It just was. Finally, after three weeks, I had the chance to sleep in, so I did! I went with Jennifer to the University Coop so she could get her textbooks for this next semester. She spent damn near $300 on three books… I definitely do not miss that about college! While at the Coop, I did pick up the newest copy of Premiere magazine with hot Brandon Routh on the cover! We had lunch at Taco Cabana… my enchiladas were pretty cold, so I found lunch to be less than satisfying!

I had an appointment at the gym up in Round Rock at 4:00pm (normally a 20-30 minute drive.) I figured leaving at 3:00 would have given me ample time to get there and run on a treadmill for about 10-20 minutes before the appointment… I was mistaken. There was just senseless traffic everywhere this afternoon. I was completely engulfed in road rage! Turns out the road rage actually came in handy as I got to the gym right at 4:00pm… the adrenaline rush lasted the full hour while I was there, so that’s a plus.

Anger, fear, aggression; the dark side of the Force are they. Easily they flow, quick to join you in a fight.

That’s my primary motivating factor in working out in the first place. It’s the most efficient way for me to expel anger. The angrier I get, the more weight and reps I add until I’m completely defeated by fatigue (and later pain!)
