Pursuit & Propaganda

 

Pursuit your dreams_rev-01
Pursue your dreams! I dream of a waffles emoji! Waffles or pancakes – what team are you on?

>>> Why logic and reasoning takes a back seat to propaganda. And that image of the anchor-brained ginger…

I think my favorite oh-shit-there-is-no-time blogging template is connecting two random media nuggets with an alliterative title.

And closing with a Tony Robbin’s hand clap. Say yes?

Tu | PT visit was interesting. Took some notes about positions and patterns to work on, and was given some mobility/recovery work to do, though – honesty zone – I’m not so sure I’ll actually KB smash my psoas on my own.
