But Tomorrow…    

“Today I am not in my skin. My body cannot contain me. I am spilling out and over, like a rogue wave on the shore… My demons are lying in wait, they are grinning in the shadows, their polished fangs glinting, knowing today, it will be an easy kill. But tomorrow, tomorrow could be different, and that is what keeps me going today.” -Lang Leav, The Universe of Us

Hidden Exits | Charles Wilkin

Sometimes things just fit together. I really like how Lang’s poem and Wilken’s collage relate to one another; in their darkness, and their beauty.

If you’re thinking, “Lighten the fuck up, Gunz! We like our blogs like we like our conversations: safe AF,” then check out this TED talk followed by the Kenny Kane on Barbell Shrugged. Both scratch the surface, but you won’t give you the nervous giggles. Practice and performance zones – we need them both, but not in equal measure. Like hamstrings & booty shorts, carbs & barbells, 90’s gansta rap & Die Antwoord…

What zone are you giving preferential treatment to…?

Th | Not very focused. Need headphones. Or a more savage resting bitch face. Box squats felt solid at +20# from the last time I performed these.

Sa | E’rything felt heavy today. And regressed to a noob on the snatches again. Definitely in the practice zone with all my failed attempts.

M | New plan: AM sessions on Monday. Hip and back are not loving Sunday’s hike. Time constraints have had me easing up on the mobility and stretch a bit. Perhaps that’s playing a role.

When your stretch sesh requires a safe word
