So. Tired.


I kind of want to just quit life right now. Ugh.

Rest day-ish

Yesterday I went for a bike ride. Beautiful day, I was lucky I caught the sunshine.

Legs were beat up from the other day, so today I did some light rowing:
4x200 m (sorta fast, but it was slow)
and then a couple of light 500s.

4x6 dead hangs
3x5 HSPU
3x10 sn grip presses (w/ bar)

Nice and light.

No one judge me for my exercise habits right now. I will shoot anyone who thinks less of me as a lifter for what I'm doing. I physically cannot do anything else so in order to keep myself sane (and I'm 100% dead serious with that), I do what I can.

Because I know those who will.

Did rowing sprints today. Felt good and hard. Almost like a hard squat work out ... but not quite.

300-200-100 x3

People would be mad at this. Well news flash -- I have a TON of shit going on right now, and this is a healthier way to let the anger and frustration out then doing something else stupid. So, there you go.

Anyways, I thought I was going to die. Splits aren't that much different than when I was doing CrossFit. Goes to show you lifting is all around awesome.

Bodyweight hasn't changed, which is good. Still maintaining muscle so when I'm ready to start squatting again, I'll be ready.

Well I'm pretty royally f'ed up now, so lifting is pretty much out of the question for now. Just my luck. Been doing what I can to keep myself sane. That pretty much involves bike sprints and rowing sprints. Plus pull ups, push ups, dips etc. That's it.

Today I did a short bike sprint work out, some rowing sprints (10x150m, love those), and then some pull ups and pushups, and played around with some handstands (soooo glad I can do those again). That's about it.

Just trying to push through ...

"You're better than OK, you're just right."

Sometimes it's nice to hear things like that.
Thanks Fran!

I wish ...

Do you ever smell a certain smell, hear a certain song, or see something that just takes you back to a specific moment in time, so intensely and so acutely that it's almost as if you were there?

I wasn't in Seattle last year for fall because I was at Whitman. Now I am ... and I'm wishing. Remembering. I miss high school. I never thought I'd say that, but I do. I miss my soccer team. Running in the pouring rain, bright orange jerseys flying around, our unstoppable trio on defense ... winning the championship ... feeling like I was good at something, unstoppable. Running around Greenlake in the cold, rainy nights. Running the Jingle Bell Dash in December, in freezing weather. Then school. The Christmas spirit. Deck the Dome. Pacific Place. Hallelujah. I miss it. I miss it all. I was ok back then. What happened to me? Why? Sometimes I wish ... I wish I could go back there. To those moments. I miss those moments. Everything was good back then.

My life ...
