Left the box this morning after my workout to find this text waiting for me from my friend Erin (our local baker):
For some reason, I decided that instead of buns of steel, we were all more realistically working towards buns of aluminum … it made them laugh, which is all I really cared about.
As for me, well, let’s just say I’m working around some stuff after a failed Snatch yesterday. Pretty annoyed but I’ve finally reached the point where I’m taking the Snatch off the table for my training. Le sigh.
