“Every time you are tempted to react in the same old way, ask if you want to be a prisoner of the past or a pioneer of the future” ― Deepak Chopra



I. Snatch Balance – Build to a tough single in a few sets

II. Snatch – 2, 2, 2, 2 @ 90%; Rest 1 minute between sets

III. High Hang Power Snatch – Touch-’n-Go reps x 7; Rest 30 secondsx 3

IV. Chest-to-Bar Pullups x 10; rest 30 seconds x 5

Completed: Not even sure the weights, somewhere around 45 – 65lbs. Wasn’t paying attention to how much, mostly focusing on how. Head is not in the game today. It’s only Tuesday and feeling like am being dragged down by something unidentifiable. My diet has been great, except for Sunday post race, with a couple minor cheats. Nothing to get derailed about, as am back to strict and healthy. Feeling good in that regard. But while the body moves forward, the mind is stuck in reverse.

Is it silly to think that you feel motivated and ready every day of your life? Is that just plain silly and unrealistic to expect? Is it the times like these, when we feel nothing but the desire to draw the blinds and pull up the covers, that count most? I’m guessing yes. Because when your head is not in it, and has no desire to get in it, the challenge to put it down and move forward nonetheless is that much greater. So, if you can push through, you’re ultimately better for it.

Easier said than done.

Tomorrow is Strongman. Will attempt to WOD and then SM, for another 2.5 total hours spent at ACF. I appreciate the outlet and the healthy consistency this provides to me. Especially when other areas prove not so much.
