Mr VB:

I took the time to cruise through your entire progress log. Wow. What an inspiration.

Impressive total.

Yes go into a Masters meet. I find that my learning curve went through the roof when I raced. Will be interested to see what you do.

Thanks for the comments.

I just posted the WOD (puppy scale) to my blog. I did 72 pullups and got rewarded. Check the pics on shoalsfit.blogspot.com

Your blog made me laugh. I moved back to Toronto from South Texas this year and your line about it being 98 degrees and thinking it's not hot out was right on the money.

PS: I've been a rower for 20+ yrs. Along with gymnasts and Oly lifters -- we know blisters! The best thing I have ever used for blisters/calluses is vitamin E. Before you go to bed, bite open a capsule, rub it all over your blisters and it will harden up. Seems counter intuitive.. but it works.

Thanks y'all!

I was shocked when I found that "fat" pic. I really can't believe how much I was in denial! I thought "I just have a little bit of a gut to lose." When I think about it now - wow! If I saw that out somewhere and had to describe him, fat would definitely be one of the first adjectives.

I am happy with what I've done, I have more to do. I am most satisfied with how I feel and what I can do! How I look is just a bonus - a great bonus!

What a change. Fantastic work. It's amazing what consistency and hard work will do. If anyone wants to see the power of that, they just have to go through your progress log.
