Fishbowls  

“Sympathy’s easy. You have sympathy for starving children swatting at flies on the late-night commercials. Sympathy is easy because it comes from a position of power. Empathy is getting down on your knees and looking someone else in the eye and realizing you could be them, and that all that separates you is luck.” – Dennis Lahane

Just like you

Recognize the fishbowl you live in.

And that we all come from the same place. So, more empathy, more engagement, less eyebrows.

(Those were my two favorite ear snacks this week. I’m leaving it to you to have to listen and draw the parallels yourself. Mu-ah!)

Tuesday | So many bench vids. Here’s the heaviest one I completed. Yep, still 105#:

And here’s an attempt at 110#:

Wednesday | Stayed up way too late Tuesday night and paid for it ALL day Wednesday. And then ended up taking a rest day because of how crappy I felt. This week I am re-committing myself to the sleep.

Thursday | Sore abs from hanging leg raises. I like that. The clean part of the C&J felt great. I haven’t done a heavy jerk in a while – and having missed the last two weeks of Oly class, well, that didn’t help. The barbell is plenty high enough. “Just” need to get my ass under it.

Friday | Feeling some tightness in the back on the right side. Despite that Friday was pretty great. I felt good and you know how I feel about the EMOMs.

Saturday | Fuck yeah snatch PR!

PR dance
Nailed it

Not making giant leaps over here, but I’ll take 5# jumps, no doubt. Celebrated with Jorden at Crudo. Okay, maybe we had ladies night dinner plans, but why not turn it into a celebration. 

Sunday | Fuck. Yes. Football.
