“As times goes on, you’ll understand. What lasts, lasts; what doesn’t, doesn’t. Time solves most things. And what time can’t solve, you have to solve yourself.” – Haruki Murakami
I don’t feel like using my words today. It’s Friday and the mothership arrives from the homeland this evening – hide the porn and clean the casa! I’m spent. Instead of a thread of rambling thoughts, here’s a random list instead! Some favorites of the week (Besides “fuck” of course. And anything by Murakami.):
- The Art of War Visualized
- The All Blacks haka (Don’t know what the fuck that’s all about, but I like it)
- An Open Letter… (Teaser. You know it’s good when it starts like that.)
- It’s not a list without glutes!
- You miss 100% of the shots you don’t take.

Friday was fine. Nothing to report. Rest day, ditto. On Wednesday I hit 155# on the front squat, which was consistent with my number during test week . According to my training logs I haven’t ever hit 165# on front squat, despite what I say in that post. Don’t know where that came from… Fire pants! Regardless, 155# felt strong and I know there’s more where that came from.
Iron Scap is challenging but it’s getting better and set-up is less of a motherbitch. I think I’m ready to go for 2 rounds moving forward.
New practice for the standing work station. This video was in a post from Robb Wolf about healthy feet:
I can’t do the big toe thing! Tried at work, doing dishes last night, and brushing my teeth. It’s crazy. Feet mittens. Anyway, there’s no fucking way you’ll catch me in a pair of Vibram’s so I figure I’ll get really good at the feet exercises to compensate. Good plan.
