Yesteday at the gym…


I decided to up the amount of weight I would attempt while bench pressing.  Now keep in mind, it still isn’t a lot of weight, but…

So, I added the weight and began my sets.  1st set went well, no problem, and I was feeling pretty smug.  2nd set, I got through it, and it wasn’t too bad.

Now the 3rd set,  I got through 5 reps and, wow, took a couple seconds to breathe and just then the next song on my playlist came on.  john Mellencamp’s “hurt so good”. 

Made it through the last few reps, and today, it hurts.  And feels really good.
