There Is No Time

“Did you ever see someone and know they were to play a role in your life?” – Madame La Norte, in the last chic flick I watched

It’s been a heavy couple of weeks in this universe. After taking some moments, I listened to the Barbell Buddha’s podcast, for the first time actually. Man, just… listen. There are some heart-wrenching moments, ones that generated some audible f-bombs over here, and, of course, insights on life. I’m grateful for the volume of content, and of himself, Chris Moore put out there. He’s still got lots of teaching to do.

F | Rolled into the gym with some sore glute medius and abs – the bottom two of the 6-pack, if there were visible abs involved here. The movements felt good. The hips taps were challenging. I feel more locked out in those than in the shoulder taps. Halved the reps because breathing upside down is hard! The sprints were fun; took the entire time in the last two rest periods to get my breathing back to normal. A nice note to end the night on.

Sa | Felt those sprints getting started for Oh-lifting, but once through the pulls, the system seemed to awaken. Worked on adjusting my landing on the jerk – getting low and not reaching with the rear foot. The shoulder spoke to me a little demo-ing the hip taps for Mayhem, but figure it was just all the work that was done over the last 24 hrs. Rest day Sunday.
