Dress Codes

“There is no such thing as bad weather, only inappropriate clothing.” -Sir Ranulph Fiennes

dress codesI really like that quote. Funny that it stumbled across my desk just as I was whining about how cold it is in the new office. Haaay, Universe. I feel like you could break that quote down – mad lib style – and apply it all over the friggin’ place…

“There’s no such thing as a [adjective] [noun], only inappropriate [verb].”

Yes, I took liberties: clothing, dress (noun), dress (verb). Hmm. But it’s not quite there…

“There’s no such thing as a [noun that’s out of your control – gravity problem], only inappropriate [verb within your control].”

Let’s try.

“There’s no such thing as a shitty traffic, only your (my) lack of preparedness.”
“There’s no such thing as a lame workout, only your attitude towards it.”
“There’s no such thing as a toxic relationship, only your decision to remain in it.”
“There’s no such thing as a stupid question…”

Meh. There are no absolutes, friends.

Test it out. Does it work with your “code”?

Tu | The squats felt phenomenal as did part C. But then, it IS a favorite… Notes to self about the smarts behind all that stair stepping from TG #theresalwaysaplan

W | Not the smoothest workout; fighting myself on the DUs and KB press as I got a little frustrated. Subbed DBs for the BB on the bis due to availability. Biceps revolted on the last round – the last few reps were eeked out.

Sa | Dang that part B got me breathing good.

Su | Really feeling Saturday’s sit-ups. And OH carries. Really tender on the roller btwn my blades. Can’t believe how much I am feeling the hammies on the GHDs these days.

Was a bit of a ride with the training last week; had some struggle with focus. Why is that…? Hmm.

M | Enjoyed that part A; the snatches felt nice and snappy. Right side was a little slow to engage on the strict press. Lots of abz and lats in the cable rows; can’t believe how much I am feeling my hammies working these days. Muy bien.
