Holy crap I know I should have expected this but a few weeks ago I was thinking "gee my allergies haven't kicked in this year...maybe I'm over them?"

HA!!! I should have seen yesterday coming! I was at the playground with Connor and Chase for an hour+ and by the time I got home I felt like my eyes were swollen shut! BAH! I think they said yesterday was they highest in the region ever. Great.

Worse thing...I was at the Range when I wake up Saturday miserable. So while everyone else was out shooting MK-19's all day I was laid up in the barracks in a sleeping bag trying not to rush down to the bathroom everyone half hour.

Meanwhile Laurie and Hunter have been throwing up at home. So when I get back home at 9 it's so I can go get much needed 7up/pedialyte and to wathc Connor, who can't understand why everyone else in the house seems bedridden!

Right now I'm debating if I'm going to the gym today or not.

Not feeling the best at the moment.

Man take it easy. You got the rest of your life to lift. You got to get healed up right for your family. I officially give you in tripliciate the authorization to take the next three days off if needed.

haha woohoo.

BTW the full body split in hypertrophy using the Complexing method that Dos mentions is a fun way to break up the workout. The power cleans with the box jumps tore my legs up.
