    Well, no training for a while. I went for my hike yesterday and encountered a very large rattle snake. Luckily I didn't get bit, but I had to jump down a hill to get out of the way, and I sprained my ankle pretty bad. A friend of mine carried me down the mountain about 3 miles on his back. My ankle is huge and I probably won't be able to walk for at least a few more days. I attached a pic.

    I took some time off cause I train alone for the most part and I couldn't walk. That injury turned out to be much worse than my doctors thought at first. Once I could limp a little I did some upper body. I have been training for the last month or so, I have just been neglecting my journal.
