Got a 15 KG Barbell

My body feels beat up! A lot of areas are sore. Last night I cleaned a ton in my workshop and kicking up all of the dust got my sinuses fired up the rest of the evening. Then today after walking 18 holes and showering they flared back up again. Plus I got a bit of a heat headache. So wasn’t really feeling the greatest to workout for our fourth day in a row, but I knew we weren’t doing anything intense. I don’t like to workout four days, but Brandi and I have some oddities in our schedules this week. Yes, I did have the day off work.

Oh, and the new 15 kg barbell arrived from X Training!
