Suck it up!

Man I can’t stand whiners. I’m not sure who that was who took over my blog and posted like a crybaby. I have almost succeeded in tying and gagging her. I’m doing some dips, air squats and planning to do some PVC deadlifts soon…maybe Thursday. I’ve read a lot about hip flexors and flexibility and […]


It was suggested today that I take two weeks off training to heal. My back is still hurting. At times it is bad. Really bad. I hate time off. All I can think is ‘lost time’. Time I could be getting stronger, faster or more conditioned. What is this obsession I have? Maybe I need […]


I’m sipping my coffee (with Coconut Creamer…mmm) contemplating what 38 feels like. It’s not that much different than yesterday at 37. I do love to think about when I was younger (MUCH younger) and reflect on what I thought 38 would feel like. I remember that it seemed so old. I still remember my SIL […]

Saying one thing…

Things are looking up!

I did a very mellow tabata workout yesterday and added in a few deadlifts just to check the back. I also read this article from Rippetoe and applied that to my situation. Things seemed pretty good. I went to CFV today and did a Hang Clean / Pull Up workout and all went well. I […]


I had a great WO on Wednesday. We did 3 rounds of 25 Power Snatch / 25 Chest slapping push ups (on knees). As soon as I finished, I had a weird pain in the side of my back. By the time I went to bed I couldn’t bend. Sleeping was interesting…finding a comfy spot […]

The "Big" Salad

Here’s my lunch today. I went to Lassen’s and bought some real crab meat. MMM. What I bought was just a hair under 2 blocks which is what I wanted for lunch. I had 1 Roma tomato, half a cucumber, and a load of mixed greens. I’m adding a 1/4 apple to balance the carbs […]
