Training for the World's Strongest Man Competiton

The hot summer days here in Ohio must be brutal for the numerous cars around here as they probably have to do double the work to cool down the engine as the AC is running. Anyways, David's car battery decided to die on him yesterday just as he had gotten through the entrance to the Quarry, which is sort of good since he had moved his car out of the way of the busy intersection outside. Unfortunately, we live uphill, so David and I did our best Strongest Man impression as we both pushed the car up steadily to our apartment garage. The steady climb was ok, but having to push the car over speed bumps while going uphill was pretty brutal :( Add the 90 degree heat, and we got ourself a burning intense exercise for both of our leg calf muscles.

Today, while David and I were with our friend Kevin at Barnes and Noble, Kevin decided to buy me the first book of the Wheel of Time series by Robert Jordan. I've already heard Kevin and David discuss the various aspects of the book, and Kevin thinks that the Wheel of Time series rules all and wants to spread the word, so now I'll have to start my trek in the Wheel of Time series.
