So, I was totally torn on this post, but I figure what the hell. I might as well.

As you know, I made some resolutions this year regarding writing, working out and life in general. So far, you know that I've tried hard to stick to the writing one, with a few hiccups but overall not so bad. And the life one, well... Those of you who used to talk to me on IM and message boards on other websites know how that's going. So, I figure I'd update you on the working out thingy.

Some of you know that I tried out for a professional football team last year (actually, two of them). The training went okay, and the tryouts went so so so so much better than I imagined. I kept in contact with some of the folks at the Georgia Force, and they've given me a few pointers on areas to train on and whatnot. In addition, I've done a complete refocusing on how I work out, changing the model I've used for nearly 17 years (I won't bore you with the minutia, basically I did long runs and 3 sets of 10 of weight lifting exercises, the stuff you learn in high school and whatnot).

So, I posted an update on the football tryout blog I kept (if you haven't checked it out before, it's got a lot of crap from July - October of 2007, a few videos that some people have said are funny, and other crap not really worth reading but is free of charge). It shows the progress I've made.

I won't post the pics here, but here's a link to the entry with the pictures. I don't know why I can't bring myself to post them here, I guess I just feel they make more sense on that blog than on this one, considering the context. Either that or I'm just embarrassed to be showing off or whatever. But hey, I'm proud, it's been a lot of work. So I guess the ego wins this time.

Feel free to make fun of me in the comments :)
