The VA "Scandal", my take

Workout journal for yesterday (5/22/14)

I kicked butt yesterday! heart rate 140 sustained for like 20 minutes (thanks in part to Guns & Roses & Poison! lol). It was friggin awesome! I went to the gym, inspired after a brief chat with one of our clients at work. So I got to the...
