Lesson learned…over and over again (sports)

Workout notes: I was up at 4:30 am??? Well, I went ahead and got to the gym (Riverplex) and lifted.

Pull ups (5 sets of 10, good), rotator cuff, lots of goblet squats.
bench press: 10 x 135, 4 x 185
incline press: 7 x 150, 10 x 135
military presses: 2 sets of 10 x 45 dumbbell (standing), 10 x 40 standing
rows: 3 sets of 10 x 60 single arm.
head stand (ok), 2 sets of each of 12 twist crunch, 10 yoga leg lifts, 10 moving half bridge.

Then I walked 5 miles: back of Riverplex, to the goose loop, around and to the start of Springdale and back. Note: on the way back, I decided to take the sidewalk because there were runners behind me and I wanted to give them the bike lane. they took the sidewalk…hey..some cute spandex so I was ok.

Sports: I remember back in 1997-1998 when Bradley Basketball beat nationally ranked Michigan at home.

“The Team that Beat Michigan”, they said. But then:

2-08-1997 MICHIGAN W 63-58 10741 Peoria, Ill. WEEK
12-21-1997 at Western Illinois L 50-56 3849 Macomb, Ill.
12-28-1997 at Evansville L 57-59 8105 Evansville, Ind. ESPN
*01-03-1998 INDIANA STATE L 61-65 ot 9716 Peoria, Ill.

None of those teams were nationally ranked. Moral: one good win doesn’t not a good team make.

This Saturday, Illinois State football found that out. They beat Northwestern a week ago this past Saturday, in Evanston. But yesterday: the fell behind and lost to Eastern Illinois at home.
