This being said, I'm not waiting to be catered to. I enjoy the challenge of finding a workout in a different environment. My parents live in Whitney on the lake (see picture above) and I am originally from Stephenville; both of these small towns don't have the best workout equipment by any stretch of the imagination. In Stephenville I enjoy working out at the high school and getting to see my old coaches. There is also a couple fitness places where I can get a short term membership. Whitney doesn't have hardly anything except the high school, so I have to improvise. There is a pretty big hill down to the lake that I use to run and I also utilize the lake to do some long distance swimming. This past week I got in a little blow up boat and swam with my arms about 2 miles total going from in front of my parents house to the bridge and back on Lake Whitney. This was a long hard journey that nearly sunk the boat that was only design to carry up to 190 pounds. I also got a nice sun burn! But whatever the circumstances, during the break it is hard not to slack on staying in shape and enjoy the off time that we rarely get.
The break is at an end and I am back in Lubbock, Texas. I enjoyed seeing friends and family, watching my fiancee graduate, watching my cousin Jordan graduate, camping, and relaxing. However, I'm glad to be back and ready to get back into my groove. The routine of school, homework, football, workout, blogging, and social life is back in action!
