Sunday, April 25

Today’s scheduled publicity event was canceled on account of rain.  While it means that I won’t be getting any leads today, I’m actually glad that the event wasn’t held notwithstanding the inclement weather.  Had that been the case attendance might have been significantly reduced, and I would have paid the participation fee (you didn’t think insurance agents get to participate in events for free, did you?) yet gotten few leads in return.  I should be able to participate in a similar event in a little over a month’s time.  Let’s hope the weather will be nicer.

Another fortunate thing about the cancellation is that I got to go to the gym at a nice civilized time in the early afternoon, instead of having to go early in the morning.  As I’ve noted, I am not one of these people who enjoys early morning exercise, and more to the point cannot comprehend why anyone does.  Just the other day I was at the cat food store – a major drain on my finances, that’s for sure – and the clerk recognized me from the gym.  We talked for a while about how weird it is that many people will exercise literally before the crack of dawn.  It made no sense to either of us.  In any event, today was Leg Day, and it went pretty well.  Trap bar deadlifts: 4 x 6 x 265.  No trouble here.  Seated calf raises: 4 x 12 x 150.  SLDL’s: 3 x 8 x 175.  Yes, I was able to do SLDL’s again, after last week’s unsuccessful attempt. Keeping the weight low probably helped, as did having a rest day yesterday.  Precor leg extensions: 3 x 8 x 215.  Life Fitness seated leg curls: 3 x 8 x 195.  Kettlebell swings: 3 x 10 with a 50-pounder.
