Today was an upper body recovery/accessory/get-my-swell-on day. Nothing too heavy. I did keep the volume consistent with where it has been through my training, I just dropped the intensity a bunch. Also, I stretched and rolled out a bunch. I'll probably roll out again tonight before I put my jammer-jams on and go to bed.

In case you haven't been reading the NX Level Blog I've been posting what I've been doing with a couple teams that I train on Tuesday and Thursday nights. The two teams are a U-11 girls soccer team from SC Waukesha and The Wauwatosa Spartans, a local semi-pro football team. On Tuesday night as I was finishing up the soccer girls I asked them something about school and what they've been learning and what-not. I got the usual answers of, "history is boring", "we don't learn anything fun", "I hate math" etc. That is until Katelyn exclaimed, "I like slavery. Slavery is cool!" She immediately caught herself and said she like learning about slavery and that particular time period. A poor choice of words, but at least she likes learning. And it's funny as hell.
