I was set my alarm to get up at 7am, but with the time change I’m having some difficulty staying asleep. I got to bed about 12:30 last night, but still woke up at 6;30 this morning and couldn’t go back to sleep. I went to breakfast about 7:15 and ran into my friends from the UK and had a very nice conversation at the breakfast table. My buddy Sean is trying to convince me to compete in the IFBB Classic Bodybuilding World Championships in Madrid, December 11-14. It sounds like something that I would like to do, but all the expenses of traveling to shows and missing work is adding up….real fast!!! In fact, I couldn’t be here at the Masters World Championships were it not for the generosity of Ironman Magazine publisher, John Balik, who sponsored my airfare for this trip.
Here I’m picture with British Classic Bodybuilder Sean Ferguson. We’re discussing the possiblity of having a seminar at his gym in Dorchester just before the World Classic in December.
Here with IFBB Vice President from Sweden Thomas Ivering
Well, I’m off for a short walk and will be heading to the venue for prejuding in just a couple hours. Last night at the weigh in I was sizing up some of my competition. While there are some very formidable competitors in my division it’s nothing like the lineup in Qatar, so I think I’ll be right up there in contention for the class title. I’ll post again after the prejudging.
