Default Hooray, I did it!!!

I did the leg press competition yesterday at Gold's. You had to do your bodyweight as many times as you could. Mine is 270 lbs. I managed to do it 450 times. It had beat the other 1st place person, 301 reps. Then, this other guy came and did it 550 times. I was the heaviest, by about 105 lbs or more I came in 2nd in the end, but I am happy that I beat the highest that I had seen. Thanks, guys!

Thanks to all! To answer Wolf's question, I can walk OK, but I am sore, even in my gastrocs, which have never been sore. I can just imagine how it's gonna feel tomorrow! Right after, I got on a bike, had a mild cramp in the right gastroc, rubbed it out, and biked for a while, then did some ski-movement machine for 1/2 hour, and went from hot tub to cool pool for 1-min. intervals. I would have been worse otherwise!

To answer Monsta, my legs did feel like spaghetti! I looked like a newborn horse stumbling around for the 1st time!

And to Pity, that is w/o a doubt the sexiest avy!!!
