Abs, abs and nothing but the abs
Oh, oh...now I've gone and done it.
In a fit of impulsiveness last week I bragged about the indoor workouts I've been doing while recovering from (another) leg injury. I boasted that pretty soon I'd have Abs to be proud of. My good friend Larry Savitch called me on it: "Oh you'll have great abs" he said , "Under a layer of fat unless you reduce your calories and increase your aerobic exercise".
Oops...there go the salty snacks!
To make matters worse, I challenged Larry to an Abs Competition on the beach in Negril at Reggae Marathon December 5.
No I am in really, really deep!
I should explain: Larry is quite a few years younger than me. That's not really the issue. What could cause me to come in second in this two-person competition (a finishing position I am quite familiar with by the way: Blog post) is that he already has 'Abs of Steel". Oh, and he spends his days in a gym...professionally as a Trainer.
OK, so he has a 'little' advantage over me. But heck, since it's my throwdown, and I have 280 days to get in shape, it should be no problem.
There go those salty snacks.
Until next time...
