Bring It

“The only Zen you find on tops of mountains is the Zen you bring there.” ― Robert M. Pirsig

Hiking list addition: Geronimo Head and Battleship Mountain in the Sups

The grammar police tell me that quote should read “… the Zen you take there”, but I’ll cut Bob some slack, since he’s opened the door for some visuals from the third best movie of the ’90s!


And because quizzes are the best, and self-awareness is paramount, find out which Bring It On cheerleader you are here. I’m C-C-C-C-Courney.

Th | That was the most fun I’ve had warming up (for a workout) maybe ever! Cuidado, Orlando… I’m coming for you, Boludo.

My low back was really tight after the Oly side planks; the row didn’t feel nice. Subbed the AD and it was all good. It was fun to workout with the 6:00 crew.

F | Friday booty sesh. Focused on: vertical shins on the box squats, keeping the tension throughout the entire movement on the thrusts (#torque), and being mindful of how I was initiating the movement on the GHRs. TGUs are still one of my faves.

Sa | The Zen quote applies across the board, as everyone brought it; fantastic Saturday gymnasium vibes. Did the class workout with Ali, modifying wall balls for burpees. Focused on: not bottoming out on the WBs, getting under it on the cleans, and positioning the barbell properly in my manos on the jerks – wider grip, barbell back. During a post-workout chat with Ali I discovered that I’m doing it wrong, or at least less efficiently on the running, with my hips leading the way rather than my chest… Notes for next time.
