Memorial Day weekend

"Freedoms just another word for nothin left to lose,
And nothin aint worth nothin but its free,
Feelin good was easy, lord, when bobby sang the blues,
And buddy, that was good enough for me,
Good enough for me and my bobby c."
By Kris Kristofferson
performed by Janis Joplin
Wanted to wish everyone a happy Memorial Day Weekend. Also wanted to give a special shout-out across the pond to my most loyal blog reader and because he lives in London he gets no Memorial Day cookout. Happy Man U is champions day to Bobby Carnathan.
Memorial Day in Madison means only one thing.... Bratfest weekend. Leave it to the pasty, white, chubby Wisconsinites to come up with a festival that honors a sausage. I spent about 4 hours there yesterday because there is a ton of live free music playing all day and night on two stages. The calorie content on a brat is only 240 calories the buns add 130. I kept it under a grand. :) The brats are $1.50 and they hope to set a new record by selling over 200,000 brats this weekend. The beers were $5 and I went for none of those.

Here's a couple photos from today's circuit training at Swimwest. And a special congrats to my workout partner for dropping a size. Way to go. Again I can not stress enough that having the accountability of a workout partner makes you so much more likely to stick to the program. Today marked six straight mornings in the gym for both of us. Weight Watchers weigh in this week was -4.8 lbs bringing the summer total to minus 21 lbs.

Today's music.... well, of course, some Sara.

A little treadmill time. I have been trying to mix the circuit with the treading by sprinting as much of the interval as possible

Hard to see in this picture but the little red peg directly behind me has every plate above it. In high school we called this doing the stack.

Obviously one confused soul. Let's see UCLA shorts, Syracuse shirt, Maryland hat.

Peace and have a fun, safe, wonderful weekend, Jim

We have what we call a "Bank Holiday" over here. London is a great place to live and I love it. But, when we get to this time of year and I am still pulling on a "jumper" (English for sweater), I sure miss those warm DC days.

By the way, I was in Moscow for the Super Bowl of Football (soccer in American) to see my beloved Chelsea lose to the hated Manchester United. It wasn't easy to get there and my seats where crap, but I learned a valuable lesson. If our 'Skins ever make a Super Bowl again, we are all going.

Jimmy, do you remember when we saw the 'Skins beat the Vikings in the championship and the Indian mascot hugged us? Come on Jim Zorn, get us there again!
