Not much running lately. Am getting antsy and have missed a few days planned for runs. Time has been spent strength training and on a periodized plan towards a possible 50-mile run in October.

Health & Fitness:

As mentioned in a previous podcast and post, I’ve been working on building strength. So a couple of days a week I’m working some key exercises that interest me at the moment:
  • Front Squats
  • Goblet Squats
  • Jump Rope
  • Dead Hang starting position
  • Hollow Pull-Up
The front squats I’m new to and only get to practice this movement on days I get to visit the office gym. Otherwise I practice the goblet squats using a dumb bell at home. The jump rope is my indulgence exercise. I LOVE JUMP ROPE! Lastly, when I’m not sitting around or jumping around, I’m literally hanging around building up time holding the starting position of a pull-up or a dead hang and while in hollow position.
Check out “The ‘Best’ Upper Body Pull” on Strongfirst.com by Pavel Tsatsouline.

Family & Play:
Ironically while in between building strength, I’m getting hurt. I have a history of back injury. A couple of times in the past week I’ve done improper lifting either of a child or some free weight, which cause some back twinge resulting in 2-3 days of a tight back. It could be worse and has been worse before. Fortunately I’ve been able to function and take care of the family despite the discomfort.

“You should bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. It doesn’t matter what that is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a table or a film or gardening—everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say ‘I did that.'”—Ricky Gervais

Quote:

“Most people never get there. They’re afraid or unwilling to demand enough of themselves and take the easy road, the path of least resistance. But struggling and suffering, as I now saw it, were the essence of a life worth living. If you’re not pushing yourself beyond the comfort zone, if you’re not constantly demanding more from yourself—expanding and learning as you go—you’re choosing a numb existence. You’re denying yourself an extraordinary trip.” Dean Karnazes
