Although maybe a little heavy handed, this was my response and it’s pretty universal. The first thing that you have to do is make a decision. Not a […]

10.12-14 The Two Extremes

Tags: , , ,

I think due to my preference to take the day after bootcamp as a rest day I am going to have to take Wednesday and Friday as rest days. Unfortunately that means I will be working out Saturday – Tuesday without a break. It sounds brutal but unless I can get over my hangup about the day after Bootcamp […]

R9D25 – My Yoga (Rediscovered Beginnings)

Tags: ,

I made 2 startling discoveries over the last day or so. First, doing Yoga last night I realized that I was able to go from plank to runners pose without my leg getting stuck under my protruding belly. Since I had previously blamed the lack of ability to transition on my legs, I now look […]

R4 D50 – What’s The Frequency Kenneth?

Tags: , ,

Frequency, consistency, repetition. That is my problem with Yoga. The fact that I don’t work it in enough to get used to it or any good at it means every time I do it I feel a mixture of great and mind numbingly sore. The only consistent part is the constant disappointment I have with […]

Day 74 – Coaching has started, soreness is here!

Tags:

Yoga I was ready for the pain, even though I did very little at coaching I remember from the last 3 years that the first couple of weeks are very painful. Mostly due to the fact that we leave the house at around 6-630 in the morning and don’t get home until after 9pm so […]

Day 60 – The Eyes Have It

Tags: ,

Yoga Nicole went in for laser eye surgery today at LasikMD, the same place I got my bionic vision from a couple of years ago. For that reason I was home early from work and managed to get my workout done relatively early. That meant time for studying my nutrition course, something I have not […]
