Last week I did not get the chance to train as much as I would have liked. I did not get any training sessions in with weights, but I got some pretty good GPP sessions in.
Since purchasing our new house, my wife and I have a few landscaping ideas. We have a nice pool in the backyard, with a couple of sheds behind it. In between the pool and the sheds were three "shrubs". We decided to take the shrubs out. I do not own a chain saw, so I used a hand saw to cut the branches down as much as I could. Then it was time to dig the stumps out.
It was probably not the most efficient way to dig out the stumps, but I was knee deep in roots. It gave me a great cardio session, and a good pump in my lower back and hamstrings from using the shovel. Maybe that is how Clark Griswald felt in the opening scene of National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation...
