My training today was upper body focused - Back, Chest, Shoulders, Triceps, & Biceps. I ended up over-estimating some of the starting weights for a few of the exercises, and I actually under-estimated for the others. I think it was better to be under though. I ended up missing a couple exercises, but it wasn't too much of a big deal. I only needed to to 12 reps on each of them. I'd tell you what I can bench right now, but I'm not sure what the bar weighs..... :) It was sorta sad because I know I've been able to bench with weights in the past. No worries, just gives me something to look forward to. While waiting for dad to finish his workout, I walked the track and then shot some hoops. My arms were beginning to feel like jelly, so it felt a bit weird.
While working on my triceps, I overheard a couple of teenaged boys talking about dinosaurs and the bible. When they were resting between reps, I said hello and told them I overheard them. I offered them a set of Dr. Hovind's Creation Science Seminar DVDs. I told them how wonderful they were and they would answer the dinosaur question and so many more with hard science. I really didn't want to talk to those boys. But I felt like I should. One of them seemed to be trying to pursuade the other that 'just because dinosaurs aren't in the bible, doesn't mean God doesn't exist.' I thought he would be excited that someone would be on his side and give him a way to prove what he was saying. Of course, dinosaurs ARE in the bible, but I didn't want to come across like a know-it-all or something. They seemed to think I was offering them drugs or something, "Naw, I'm good" is what one of them said when I offered the DVDs. Maybe they thought I was hitting on them.....
I'm feeling stronger already! Grrrr!
