No Days Off Days 17-20

Been super busy over the weekend between workouts and grinding poker. Thursday – Sunday morning are when the 5-10 nl game runs almost around the clock at Tulalip casino which is about 45 minutes from my house. I put in 3 sessions totaling about 28 hours in the 3 days so very happy about that. I made about $3500 in that time. Was very very happy with my play throughout the sessions.

My workouts have been going extremely well with Bobby. On thursday after doing 18 sets (3 super sets ) up stairs we ran a mile on the treadmil. I was told to run it as fast as I could and I did just that. I ran a 7:45 mile which is probably a solid 45 seconds faster than I have ever ran. Yesterdays workout was super tough. We started with a Kettle Bell circuit that involved swings, squats and pushups that was very difficult. We then went into doing 3 minutes str8 of prisoner squats where I would do 20 seconds of squats then hold at the bottom for 10 seconds then 20 secs.... O ya forgot to mention we did all this with a 20 lb weight vest on! Then we did 10 minutes on the stair stepper still with the vest on. Finially we ended doing wheelbarrels across the gym. My body is super soar today.

Nutrition is still going super well and cant wait to weigh in saturday to see where I am at. Thursday I weighed in at 217.5 after starting at 223 so we are making some progress although I feel this weeks numbers will be huge.

This is going to be a quick blog cause im about to go workout with Bobby. This week im basically grinding the local games all week until I leave for New Orleans on Sunday for the $1600 and $10k. After NOLA I head straight to Arizona for the golf tournament then off to vegas for the WSOP. We finally booked a house also! 9 of us including Adam Levy, James St Hiliare, Jesse Chini, Ryan Daut, Adam Hui and Ahmit Makajia. I feel we have a very good chance at winning a braclet in that group!
