That moment when you get so pissed at missing a hang snatch single at 85 percent for the 4th time, that you hulk out and do it for a triple next attempt.
Quotes overheard at the gym today questioning the safety of snatch..... "If I tried that, my shoulder would eject itself and just fly across the room." "He's asking for a torn labrum." "That's such a dangerous lift, he's gonna crush himself if he misses." "He probably shouldn't go so low." Mostly coming from guys who were back squatting what I was hang snatching for reps. I couldn't tell if they were serious, or if they' were just taken aback from having never seen...
Chestnut/whiskey brown Ferragamo Wingtip oxfords. 12B. Bought off eBay with the hopes that maybe I could fit in them since they are gorgeous, but alas these are a legit B width making them too tight for my C width foot. They are obviously worn, but still in very good shape. Leather is in great condition, original soles have a lot of life remaining. Nothing else included; no trees, no bag, just the kicks. Included shipping: USPS Priority with Signature.
Carrying logs through woods, one on each shoulder, all morning. Then splitting firewood all afternoon. Sore, but felt nice to do something physical since no gym due to holiday.
Actually it is. Losing weight is easy compared to gorging constantly to support mass gain.Of course, anytime I say such a thing to most people, they want to punch me in my face. Just the other day, my girlfriend gave me an ugly look when I complained that stuffing down a pound of salmon, two loaded baked potatoes, a pound of asparagus, half-loaf of cheesy garlic bread, and a fistful of chocolate-covered peanut brittle was difficult. She's all like "You can just eat...
I wonder if Paul Krugman will continue to suggest that such disaster is good for the economy, now that it has struck his own backyard....
Got 1st of 4 in my class at Oly comp today, 4th overall. They red-lighted me on 2nd attempt for a soft elbow on the jerk, but I said "screw it" and made a +2kg comp CJ PR on the third attempt anyway. Time to eat junk food and drink whiskey!
I must move to Montana.When on a date with a girl, if she says "Oh, I just love brunching with my friends!" I know it's not going to work.
I'm debating whether or not to try the eat-yourself-sick method for a while. Given my height of just shy of 6'2" tall, I'd probably be better suited to the 105kg class anyway. But then I see Ian Wilson who is over 6ft and is #1 in the 94kg class and I think "If he can do it, surely I can hit my meager goals without getting heavier." Ugh, what to do what to do.....
How risky is it to alter a long to a regular? I've found a vintage jacket for a great price that measures well aside from the length. I searched and found some answers from the crowd regarding this, but wanted to pose the question to the resident tailors and get expert feedback. If a client of yours came in with a long that fit well in the shoulders and chest, would you be willing to shorten the sleeves and skirt hem? What is a reasonable amount to shorten without throwing...
