Sunday Confessional

“Your handwriting. The way you walk. Which china pattern you choose. It’s all giving you away. Everything you do shows your hand.” – Chuck Palahnuik

Took this Habit Personality Quiz and found out I’m a Rebel. Sounds awesome, right? All cafe racers, sick ink, and killer hair..


Hmm, that synopsis was unexpected, and certainly accurate.

My rebel ass then took a listen to the TED Radio Hour on the subject of lies. Here’s a(nother) test for you: With your finger, draw an imaginary capital “Q” on your forehead. Done? Okay, in which direction did your tail go – the one on your “Q”? If it went down and to the left, you’re more inclined to be deceptive. Just like me. (Listen to the author’s more exquisite explanation here, about 1:00 into the second segment.)

So. I am a rebel. And a liar.

Things are feeling good, though this week I felt a little mentally absent at the ‘nasium. Here are the last sets of each of Monday’s heavy singles:

Was able to get 225# off the ground (yay!) on my deadlift, but got about mid-shin and my back started to round so I let it go. Front squats felt heavy, I missed on 155# which I’ve hit with regularity in the past. 

Thursday I cruised through the workout. Didn’t feel like pushing.

Friday felt good. I can hit the bottom’s up get-ups with some regularity on one side, but not so much on the other. Love the TGUs! Here is my press (featuring Dr. Tom spot and hype):

Finally felt “present” Saturday. Maybe it was a full week of nine-hour sleeps. Whatever it was, the workout felt good. I’m pretty solid slamming that 30# ball. So many slamming ball jokes… Had some extra time before stretch class so I tested how things felt on the overhead squats. All good. I did that little twerk-y wall press mobility drill I’ve seen being done in class this week. Shirtless Ben said I had some serious ass wink when I did the wall drill, but then when I did OH squats – none at all. Is this because I was loaded and using the glutes? Just curious. 

Rounded out the weekend with a hike, which was glorious. Did the west end of South Mountian again so I get let the spotted beast roam free.
