It was about 6:20 am today and I was walking across the bootcamp gym, carrying a 35-lb plate weight in each hand like a suitcase.
All I was doing was walking, carrying this extra weight, and as my shoulders started to burn, it hit me:
How the hell did I ever do this before - plus another 55 lbs?
Sure, I didn't have 125 lbs hanging exclusively off my arms but, you get the idea.
I can't remember hauling around a 282 lbs - and that's a very good thing.
The fact I got a little challenging reminder? Even better.
And the fact I could put down (OK, drop) the plates and instantly weigh 158 lbs again? The best.
