Damn, Thought I Was Holding My Own

Last night I got in a decent workout at a gym I don't go to very often. It's a nice change of pace and I have fewer interruptions. My hour+ consisted of some leg tri-sets and a few back movements. But what I did is neither here nor there.

After putting together my post-workout shake (creatine, BCAA, Vitargo, whey protein - the usual), I was walking through the gym and heard my name called. Turns out an old friend from my competitive cycling days had recently joined the gym. We hadn't seen each other in at least a decade, and had a nice chat about our shared cycling days, getting older, etc. But here's why I'm talking about this:  he said when he initially saw me he thought it was me, but then said to himself: "nah, it can't be John, his calves aren't big enough."

Damn, I thought my calves were still pretty good, even now at 62 years old.

Here's my calves less than two weeks ago, on the ride home after a workout at CrossFit Green Bay. I was sipping my post-workout shake containing fast-acting carbs in the form of either Vitargo, Build or Real Food.
