Evening update

Just thought I'd let you know, the soreness has reached new levels. I can't bend down or sit down easily. I swear to you I've been working out. I've been doing static lunges and split squats, why am I this sore??? I don't understand it!!! Work wasn't too bad since I'm on my feet all day and that was the only position that didn't hurt!!! Tomorrow it's intervals and I'm thinking some biking. I know that some exercise will help move the lactic acid on it's way out.

The following is political:

I was listening to a talk show on the way home and Mitt Romney was on. I really like Mitt but a couple things came up that made me think. First, he's apparently changed his views on abortion. I guess he used to be pro-choice and now he's pro-life. I guess that's a big deal to the conservatives. What it made me think about is this; if there is a candidate that you agree with on mostly everything, would you not vote for him/her because of their position on abortion?

I would still vote for them. The president doesn't have the authority to over turn Roe v Wade, he only has the ability to appoint Supreme Court judges who could. But that would only happen if it ended up in front of them again, that's a lot of ifs. I think there are issues that are way bigger than abortion; terrorism, Iraq, borders, illegal immigrants, the budget. Abortion is way down on the list of importance.

I've heard someone say that Rudy Giuliani has a good chance of winning the nomination. I believe that because I think his views are much more like regular folks. He's pro-choice (I think, I'm not positive cause it's not that important), he has experience - he cleaned up New York, he's for gun control which I disagree with but it's not a deal breaker. It seems that his views are a little more realistic and more like what real world people think.

Okay, that's enough, it just got me to thinking and I had to get it off my chest.

So sorry about the soreness. Make sure you're drinking LOTS of water. Advil can be your friend, too.

(I'm currently doing these things, because I pushed it on the weights yesterday. To some degree, I can feel your pain!)

What a week

Actually, it's been a couple of weeks. The weekends have been crazy busy. Crazy. Busy. For the last couple of weekends, my errands have ...
