T-LOG: July 4-7th

The SPARTAN RACE- being a gladiator whooped my ass

On Sunday, I had the privilege of being a gladiator at the Spartan Race.  It was really interesting.  We are told to knock people down with these flimsy joust sticks that make a loud sound yet pack a lightweight punch.  So you really have to swing that sucker AND connect properly or else it just gets flimsy.  Doing it outside in the heat for hours on end really wreaked havoc on my body.  I lost a lot of water weight, legs were cramping like crazy and my wrists, shoulders and elbows all got messed up at the tendons from the impact....  bottom line....i am not fit to be a spartan....  the hot gates would have been over run by the persians if i were on of the 300.  ;)

Yes, stalking and hitting people is fun. ..but all day??  Tiring.

Everything is still very sore from the weekend.  My wrists, elbows and shoulders are destroyed from swinging that damn joust at 4300 people for hours on end.

Everything feels worse.  I am not going to do ANY assistance work as everything simply feels inflamed.
