“I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read, and all the friends I want to see.” – John Burroughs
Enjoyed a really relevant blog post today, “No Time to Wonder“. It’s focused on the demands in the field of architecture, but I believe it’s got a lot of carry over.
And if not, here’s a useful video illustrating why we play dead instead of attempting to out run a bear. Useful, amiright?
Here to help.

EMOM! | 30:00

You know it’s a good day when an EMOM’s involved. As it’s been several months since the last time I snatched, I was excited to test the waters… And ooh they felt good. I do need to work on snatch progressions. Not only will they improve my snatch skills but I am certain they will make me a better person and help me win at life. (Ice Ice concurred, so you know it’s true.) I’ve noted for future EMOMs to keep an eye on the work to recovery ratio of each minute and to then adjust the rep scheme/weight accordingly. Just happy to be able to get in on this one and feel like I was moving well.
T-2 days until the Phoenix Summit Challenge!
I was NOT perfect on the detox today. Despite my leniency, I’m still counting it as a win. Behaviors have changed already (which I will continue on day 22 and beyond) and I am feeling really fucking great. I’m getting tired of food logging and being weird about the “sweetened” foods. I will never consider a sweet potato something I need to avoid, though I understand the rationale behind it’s exclusion from the approved foods list for the 21DSD. (I just don’t buy in completely.)
