So I gave it almost a week but I could not hold back any longer…The freakin g-men pulled it off. Can you believe it? Anyway it is still sinking in for me too, but I have to say Karma sure did bite the Patriots in the a$$ this time. I wont go to far into it, but with all the indiscretions going around about the patriots, I am starting to think that maybe they have been a little too good to be doing it honestly…I mean come on, Peyton Manning calls over 60% of his plays by himself, he is clearly the BEST quarterback in the league, yet Brady is regarded as better. . .WHY? Well before now it was simple, Brady had won three freakin championships…
Does anyone else think that if the Colts were providing Peyton Manning with the coverages during the games dont you think he would absolutely destroy whomever he was playing against ? anyway I digress…the g-men gave it to the Pats real good this time around, and it still feels great.
On to this weeks workouts.
This week has been tough, I was quite frankly hung over for almost two days after the big game. I had worked out Saturday and Sunday so I didn’t feel bad taking Monday off (generally I go 4 days on and 1 day off) but even Tuesday was tough. I worked pretty hard though, in fact I think I was feeling kind of guilty because I had indulged so much, therefore I may have pushed a little too hard.
I have been trying to recover from Tuesdays workout for two days, not to mention my workout with mike yesterday was a slammer, we were pressed for time so we fit a 30 minute circuit into 20 minutes, I thought my legs were going to explode. Then I went out to the field to beat up on some college boys. Since they had forgotten the balls I sent a freshman to get them while I did sprints with the rest of them. Well I called them sprints but since they had just gotten done doing sprints with the rest of the team and I was coming off of a circuit, we all looked a little more like wounded race horses. . OK I looked like a wounded race horse, they were more like Shetland pony’s!
Finally the “Frosh” got back and we went right into live draws, the rules were the same, no letting up until the ball was off the ground. I have to say for a bunch of tired guys we really got after it.
Today I woke up and it all caught up to me, I was supposed to do another circuit with Mike Duquette but I thought it would be better to hit the bike for a while(to get the lactic acid out) and get a major lift in…that I did. I have to say the new workout is definitely making a difference, I can actually see the begining of a six pack starting to emerge, and my legs and upper hamstrings are clearly stronger and more defined than maybe ever…now lets not get excited even in my best shape ever I have never had more than a 4 pack, this just means I am starting to get into the kind of physical shape I will need to be in to take on the MLL’s finest.
Anyway tomorrow is going to be the best workout of the week, I am hitting the gym hard followed by some sprints and then going to do some scrimmaging with the team (WAC). I fully expect to be spent when it is all over.
I will end on this note, although I love the Giants and I love football, I am real glad it is over. for the most part I do not drink that often. outside of football season you can expect maybe a beer or two on the weekend and maybe a few glasses of wine with dinner during the week. This football season really put a tax on me, and it was most definitely hindering early week workouts. Now it is over, and I can completely focus on diet and conditioning…until next time “ALL HAIL THE NEW YORK GIANTS”.
