I saw a homeless gentleman digging through the trash a couple days ago. When he finished, he turned and, noticing a stray piece of paper--not one he had let get away--picked it up, and put it in its proper place. Then he slowly walked away. Somehow, this gesture touched me deeply.
Friends come from some of the most unexpected places.
In many ways, rest builds as much strength as work--each in the proper proportions.
Everything is about perspective. Change the way you look at it.
Sprinting benefits from total body tension much the way kettlebell exercises do. Finally, today, playing with Abbie, that clicked, and sprints felt good instead of awkward.
WORKOUT: None today. Scheduled off day.
5 4-rung ladders of pushups alternated with double 16kg bent rows since I was away from home and I don't have my pullup bar.
4 2-rung ladders of assisted pistols
20kg TGU's 1/1 x 3
20kg Tabata swings
FRIDAY'S WORKOUT: 5 sets of Double 16kg swing x 10, sprint 40 yards, burpees x 5, jog 40 yards, rest.
Then did a 10 min run. I've decided that part of the Jennifer Physical Fitness Test is going to be a 9 minute mile.
For whatever reason, my workouts are feeling much stronger down here. I'm not sure if it's the added carbohydrates from my eating like crap or if it's the lack of work. Regardless, it feels good.
