Lou is still crushing it! He is always over 90 db, but those are his SLOW quiet songs. When Lou is playing a song he really likes its 100-110 or more. Previous Drum attempts (taking nothing away from these outstanding efforts) were NOT playing anywhere near this level. As a Coach I have been PISSED at Lou for playing this hard…it is damn hard on his body and incredibly fatiguing. The 1st two days were tough also in that Lou simply would not eat as he was so focussed on playing. This would put him into a potent calorie defecit that we had to really work to get Lou back up to speed. We rotate between BBQ tri-tip from a loal market, oranges and Paleo Brands meals, dark chocolate and nuts. Lots of electrolytes which I have fine-tuned the ratios in that to prevent neurological and muscular fatigue from mineral imbalances (LOTS of Pseudo-science in that stuff…learned it at Palmistry School…)
We’ve had people from over 250 countries watching and encouraging Lou via the live stream. If you can, PLEASE log into that stream and send Lou some energy…it really motivates him and the support staff. Please post this to your facebook and twitter. (UPDATE-Someone pointed out to me that the world only has 195 countries…I obviously read something wrong on the chat-stats. For my pride I’d like to delete this, but as a chronicle of how out of our minds we were…it’s pretty funny.)
I have never been awake this long or this much in my life…I need a nap!!
