It’s About.

“You are not your job, you’re not how much money you have in the bank. You are not the car you drive. You’re not the contents of your wallet. You are not your fucking khakis. You are all singing, all dancing crap of the world.”
― Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club


Row 500m

20 Jumping Squats

10 Burpees

Review Squat Clean as a Group


I. Build to a tough single on the Squat Clean where you’re fast out of bottom but challenging; speed is key here

Completed: Maxed out at 95lbs. Felt good about this. The form is coming more naturally.

II. 3 Sets:

30 Pullups

Rest 1 minutes

15 Thrusters (115/80)

Rest 3 minutes

Completed: in 15 minutes total. At 55lbs. for the Thrusters. Was thinking should have pushed to Fran weight at 65lbs. This is basically Fran, but broken down differently. Will think through better next time.

There’s something I want to say here, but am not quite clear yet what that might be. It involves people which were once very nice but then grow large egos and start treating others with disregard. You wonder if they know they’ve changed, or worse, care.

It’s about losing site of what might be important to you, in life, in your job, in your family, in your friends. In your life. It’s about how you want to live your life, the people you want to surround yourself with, the coworkers and bosses, and friends, and your shared vision of how you would like things to be. It’s about working as part of a team to bring something to life you all believe, together, passionately about. It’s about finding passion with what you do in your own life. And waking up every day, taking the steps in the direction of that passion, no matter how small, or minute, no matter against whom. It’s about ignoring the voices, inside or outside your own head, that say you simply can’t. That you’re not good enough, that you will never be. It’s about saying good bye when you know it’s right, even though it cuts pretty damn deep and you’re not sure you will ever, truly, recover. You still find the strength, somehow, to say it; Good bye.

Good bye.

It’s about finding that extra push to say Good bye to something that you know no longer makes you happy, or is good for you, or simply just makes you feel bad, no matter how hard you try. It’s about swallowing the pit that says, this is too scary, too unknown, too much of a leap into obscurity, to risk. It’s about risk. It’s about moving ahead despite the fear, and maybe even some sadness, or is that just more fear. It’s about finding the good that makes you happy, and brings joy and good to those around you too. When you’re happy, others are simply happy too. It’s a gift.

That’s all for now. I guess. It’s all I wanted to say. For now. Good Bye.
