Metal Room

No, not Bolder's Medal Room - this is the Bigun Metal Room. The BMR. Sounds like a Soviet Cold War Era tank of sorts. Wait...Bolder's room is the BMR too...Metal Room will have to suffice...no fancy schmancy acronyms. I had some time on Sunday, what with no workouts, to clean up the room and rid it of all things not Iron. Well, not all things, as we still have to have a place to iron our clothes. Technically, it's still a room of all things Iron.

As cool as that weight set is, it's hard to even fathom that I haven't' hardly touched it since we bought it (from Costco...the uber-mecca store of great buys) a few years ago. Well, last night, I touched it - and it confirmed my fears - I'm a 250lb weakling. Everything took an inordinate amount of effort. This will be a long road, my friends...

Fortunately I took it easy, and my tendons are not screaming at me today...but I can definitely feel the effects of pushing weight. Can't wait to hit the legs...aught to make the 30-30-30 (henceforth the 30-cubed) that much more interesting. Good grief...Sweet Baboo went 5:31 at SOMA...I need to put that up on the wall somewhere as additional motivation....

I think we need some color on the walls...something motivational...something that really gets you moving...

TRI-ROB said...

I'm thinking a nice mauve... uh... I mean gun-metal gray.

Bigun! Can't wait to read your RR on the '07 Alcatraz! I can't WAIT to race it... but I will say that the swim sounds a bit daunting.

Breathe....

Bolder said...

BOOYAH!!!

supalinds said...

As for the weights...i'm with ya there...I'm terrified to get back to them :)

Rocks said...

I hope you enjoy the DOMS

I am extremely flattered that the "Beat Bigun" sign made its way to the BMR. Is that how you spell motivation? ;)

Brent Buckner said...

Weights! Must add weights to my training week!

21stCenturyMom said...

I have a set of weights. They keep the floor from floating up to the ceiling - it's awesome!

Cindy Jo said...

With those weights I can see how you're a clyde. And yes, you carry it well!!!

Do you listen to metal in the metal room?

Steve Stenzel said...

Wow, sweet set-up!!

JohnnyTri said...

rockon`

S. Baboo said...

Ok, I admit that when I first saw your post I thought it was about a MENTAL room...work hazzard you know.

Ugh, now I have to hit the weights too, you are a stern task master Bigun!

The Clyde said...

Where are the pictures of the half naked chics that are suppose to be a staple of every home gym?

Wendy said...

Lovin' the setup, and the signage!!

blink140pnt6 said...

I fear weights! But I think I'm headed in the same direction.

SWTrigal said...

Bigun-Nice to meet you! Look forward to seeing you at IMCDA!
:)

Di aka "Mrs Bigun" said...

...a nice mauve...pin up girlys....the half naked chics...

I guess all we need now in that room is a pull out and a video camera!! LOL

Okay, actually I think the wall will end up Metallic pewter and a steel blue sans posters of girlys. For the curious minds out there ;)
Di (the decision maker)lol

Dan Seifring said...

That's a nice looking set up you got there. Just another reminder that I really need to add strength training to my plans.

J-Wim said...

So, let us know when your hosting the gun show. I've been lifting too so look out.
It can't be today- I can hardly lift a piece of paper, let alone my arms....

tri-dogmom said...

I was just going to ask if Di get's any say in the decorating of this room? :-)

Spokane Al said...

I have no opinion on the color of your walls. I do, however, lust after your weights setup.

Cody the Clydesdale said...

Finding the time to do the things we want is a struggle for all nowadays. But
its a near impossible task for a triathlete. You say your weak, but I say your
seriously fast. I'd rather be fast. You, aparently, are doing something right,
strong or not.

Tea said...

forget pin up girlies just put that picture of Di in the taco shirt on the wall.

Yeti said...

I don’t see a thigh master hanging on the wall

bigmike600 said...

If you got a metal room...you better not be playing crappy music in it...Metallica, Slayer, Pantera, they belong in the metal room...Boston, Poison, Whitesnake, DefLeppard...not so much.

BTW that weight room looks SWEET.

Nice sign in the small arms repair room.
