Turns out there's a new specialty fly-fishing shop/guide up there close to my folks, that I've got to try and get to next time I'm there (which I think will be 4th of July weekend). It'll be nice to talk to some people who know about these rivers better than I do. I'm also really interested in hitting the Llano River, again probably over 4th of July weekend.
More and more tennis lately, which is great, although as my shotmaking skills come back to me it gets more and more pathetic, relatively, how slow I am out there. I need to get into a doubles league or mixer - less court to cover.
By all accounts I should have been asleep long ago. I haven't had any problems getting up at 5am every day to get to the gym (or the river, as the case may be), but I'm still having major problems getting to bed by 9pm. I'm usually really sleepy around 3pm, but wide awake come bedtime.
Did you know that there's a 3+ hour extended director's cut of That Thing You Do? (An incredibly good and underrated film, in my opinion.) My folks bought it on DVD and I'm borrowing it from them currently. Includes never-before-seen extra footage of Tom Everett Scott and Charlize Theron making out - also, a lot of extra backstory. I can see why it all hit the floor, since the pacing slows way the hell down, but it's fun to see once.
Started doing upper-body stuff at the gym this morning. I am always in severe pain for the first couple of days after starting arm stuff, which is probably why I never stick with it. I also don't really perceive a need for it - I work out for two main reasons, to burn calories and (hopefully) strengthen my legs and core to prevent more back damage. However, I'm considering the theory that the more muscle mass you build, the more calories you will burn every day even when you're not working out, etc., etc. Usually it's my biceps/elbows that hurt the most so I didn't do any curls, just the lat pulldowns, so we'll see if it's any less painful tomorrow.
