Story of my life ITT.

Back to the really pretty Vietnamese girl (see bottom of linked post for a refresher) –

She came to the clinic in regular clothes today which to her means a skirt and sleeveless shirt which was an immediate GG for all my sensibility. I said,

“Are you always this pretty or just on Saturda-”

“Whatever.” <– her response with no hesitation or even really stopping to look at me.

Should I kill myself?

Jake: why is it important to the story that she’s vietnamese?
Brent: because i think they can be the hottest Asians
at least the most sultry and exotic
Jake: you should have threatened to napalm her villaige
Brent: the only thing that was napalmed here was my heart
it’s still smoking in the dusk
Jake: smells like victory

I did get her number yesterday, somehow –

“But don’t call it,” she adds, “I don’t want you to find out it’s a fake number until you leave.”

So ……………

(It is her real number. This story is mostly irrelevant since she is seeing a guy long-distance, he is on a football scholarship. I’ll say it again: she’s seeing a guy who is on a football scholarship. I play StarCraft 2. Diamond 2v2 with Saul aka Antigen aka RunItAgain actually. This is the end of the story.)

(Also for the sake of objective reporting – she is actually a very nice girl with a brilliant smile, for example one time she bought me and another person at the clinic a thai iced tea when we said it sounded good when she was going to get one, she just has a sense of humor (a good one imo), and obviously has no interest in me. She’s also offered to buy me lunch. Not on a date, but like, at the clinic, one time I thought I didn’t have cash and she was like oh it’s ok I’ll get it but then I find some so she didn’t have to. She is amazing. I want to hold her hand and stare into her eyes. She has very pretty eyes.)

I benched 250lbs for 5, 4, 4, and 3 (stalling and failing at the 4th rep without a spotter and barely managing to bring the bar into the lower pins on the bench). High-bar back squat 380lbs for a pretty solid 3×5, then did some rushed RDLs at 285lbs for 8 and 6. By rushed I mean I did them as soon as I racked the weights for the squat and brought 225lbs back to the floor and loaded it to 285. I was pretty tired.

However – I woke up at 12:00pm for this workout, and had to be at work at 2:50ish. I didn’t think I’d even be able to do one set of 5 for bench and squat and have it be like 90% of my best effort. But I approached pre-workout nutrition with an immediate waxy maize/pro shake, slammed down a 9oz ribeye, had some coffee, and was training by 1:30pm. I wasn’t expecting even a decent workout, but I think the waxy maize 1.5 hours before training + the coffee for elevated blood glucose levels is a pretty legit pre-workout stack.

MOBTALK: this one right here looks like it might help me a lot, specifically the internal rotation of the hips + joint approximation. Hoping that helps my split foot work, i.e. me internally rotating the back leg so that my toes point inwards, not out.
