Probably 4 or 5 months ago now I saw a picture on the internet that said “Take public transit; Fall in love 50 times.” Before I even got to the ’50 times’ I thought “YUP.” To get to the gym (Or anywhere else) after work I take the TTC. The subway is packed at rush hours, like, 200-250ish people in each 50 foot car, I couldn’t have got a seat if I wanted to (I didn’t, I don’t sit unless it’s as near as matters empty because the seats are for old people and pregnant women). I get on to go to the gym take a look around and notice I’m standing no more than 15ft. from a very pretty girl who’s sitting and reading (Something I’ve gotten into lately, I started Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar on Monday), we make eye contact for less than half a second, but it was enough for me to notice she had the prettiest eyes I’ve ever seen. They were blacker than the night’s sky in the country, blacker than puddle of oil on fresh pavement, blacker than the album cover for Smell the Glove. You literally could not distinguish her iris from her pupil. So dark, but still so kind. She looked up in my direction one more time before we both got off the subway, again for a similar span of time. At most a second of seeing those eyes and yet they’re vivid in my memory some 3 hours later. Knowing I saw her at the busiest time of day in the biggest city in the fucking country on one car of about 20 on one subway train that runs every 3 minutes affirms that I will never see her again. I don’t want to talk about that.
I probably sound like a real fucking creep right now, but whatever, there’s not much else to do on this train than read or write.
Snatch: 165 x 10 x 1
Pressed 3 out, Is it illegal to “Shrug out”, because I’m pretty sure I shrugged up after the catch on pretty much every rep.
Klokov: 165 x 5 x 1
It was real cool bottoming out on the first attempt at one and falling back and having to throw the bar off myself. AGL. Smoked 5 after that, though.
Curl: 100 x 2 x 8
Chins: +70 x 5,5,7
As promised, only did 70 because of bicep fatigue from the curls, caught a pretty fat pump, it was alright.
