Dumbest Reasons to Miss Training
I live in southern California, so I spend a fair bit of time at the beach. Usually I don't spend as much time in the sand or the water as I do on the pull-up bars, balance beams, and other lovely fitness stuff they have decorating Santa Monica Beach. And I usually come home not much darker than my northern European ancestors who never left the homeland without their battle axe. But we had some friends visit this weekend, and I spent some time tossing a football around, and without all the climbing activities available at this beach, I then spent a good amount of time in the pond.
In all of this, I didn't consider how much shade Santa Monica has by the pull-up bars, so I didn't wear any sunscreen, because I normally don't burn. This time, sirs and ma'ams, I did. I have blisters spotting up the purplish right side of my body, so like a lazy douchebag, I decided to take the week off judo. And I rage. My heart needs to slam and be slammed upon gaia's fair bosom.
So please, good bullies, tell me stories of other idiots missing out on good training for the crappiest of reasons.
