Mixed training

Initially we were schedule to train Tuesday and Friday this week but due to my wife, Laura, coming down with a very serious case of strep throat we had to cancel Tuesday so I could care for her. Most of us have had strep throat at some time in our lives and sometimes are worse than others, hers was the worst - high fever with severe pain in her throat and her whole body (very frightening for me). Because of this I called off Tuesday's practice so I could help her. It's always difficult for me to see anyone in pain especially when there is so little I can really do to help. It's different when you can do something to remove the pain and a whole different thing when you just have to help someone you love bear it until it gets better (hopefully). I am so relieved that she is doing so much better today (it's her first day out of bed since this began). I ask all you reading this to look to the health of all of your loved ones and help them in their times of need, it can be difficult but caring for them and helping them get better makes life worthwhile.

With that said I want to dedicate this session to my Wife Laura who's 43rd birthday is tomorrow.
