My master plan is about 80% complete. Time to get busy. First objective is the Charlotte Cup in Charlotte, NC April 28th. I just sent in my entry form today. Moving to the NPC and Men's Physique this time. The NPC North Carolina Championship is tomorrow. I plan to take the drive to High Point, NC to do some homework on what the NPC Men's Physique actually looks like. I don't know what I don't know, so there is no point waiting for a show that is months away. I figure there's only one way to test the waters. Geronimo! With both feet baby.
It started off a little chilly this morning. By the afternoon it had turned sunny, warm, and beautiful. Stripped off my shirt to wash my truck. First time I've ever done that. I never saw the point of working outside with no shirt on, but now I need to get my tan on. I'm actually pretty excited about this upcoming contest right now. I should know more or less what to expect after the show tomorrow. That and a tan is a lot more than I had going for me with my first competition.

Sprint Baby Sprint Workout. I remembered my mask this time. After the first sprint I was sucking air so hard the mask was collapsing on my face with each inhalation. I gave myself the full 120 seconds between sprints. I noticed that I tolerated the oxygen debt a little better after each sprint. Next workout I think I will cut 30 seconds off the recovery time. I don't think that will be much of a problem. My legs feel much better, but I'm still only going to push it to maybe 90 percent. At this point I'm not too concerned with speed. Right now I think its better if I focus on smoothing out my form and the speed will come.

Big Chest Day. I wanted to make it easy and keep all the sets between 6 and 8 reps. Except for one or two sets, for the most part it was a good and easy workout.
