“I think what I feel fortunate about is that I am still astonished – that things still amaze me. And I think that that’s a great benefit of being in the arts, where the possibility for learning never disappears; where you basically have to admit you never learn it.” – Milton Glaser

It’s Tuesday, the toughest day of the week. Monday you’re riding the weekend buzz; Wednesday you’ve got Friday in your sights. So, Tuesday we listen to Ira Glass and remember to trust the process…

Diane Rehm caught me off guard this week when she casually mentioned that she didn’t go to college. Isn’t it interesting the assumptions we make about people; how we categorize and correlate based on our personal experience and filter? I just assumed she went to college because she’s so good at what she does – and so successful. Huh.

I wish Diane would have had the authors of Sex at Dawn (yes, I am obsessed with that book) on this week’s show, Is There a Science to Falling In Love?. I think they could have added an intersting perspective on the conversation. Speaking of my new favorite book, it’s a part of the lastest TED radio hour, 7 Deadly Sins. Who knew Gilligan’s Island had such depth.

Paired up with the incredible Krista Wood for the partner workout on Saturday. It was a little short and in retrospect I should have loaded up a barbell and pu tin some open gym time.

Went to the fights Saturday night and stayed up past my bedtime so Hiking Sunday turned into Rest Sunday. 

Monday’s workout involved a lot of heaving breathing. And recovering. And repeating. ‘Twas my first time performing deficit deadlifts; definitely see how those can work the weakness of the pull from the floor. I was happy to see that I am back at my pre-hip issue pace on the erg, though that fell off on rounds three and four. 

Checked in with my averages on my sleep app the other day…

Sleep is so magical and yet it’s really hard to prioritize. Why is that? I like to lie to myself with how productive I could be if I just slept a smidgen less, even just an hour. But in reality…
