The past week has been on and off. For the most part I have been at least doing something, even if it is only doing my warm-up and then stretching.

 

A buddy, Dylan, and I finally started working out together again. This will be a huge boost in getting me to get my workouts done We will be doing Mondays and Fridays together, so the rest I will have to figure out on my own. This first one went great, tho I felt surprisingly weaker than usual. Both of us left dead and feeling great.

 

I also went swimming with another buddy, Michael. I am going to be swimming at least once a week. Last night I learned some more techniques on swimming form that should help a lot.

 

I have started scheduling things out for my training program for my full triathlon on December 5. I will start training on July 20, one week after I get back from a two week backpacking trip in Colorado, and 20 weeks before the race.

 

Milestone:

One note of success, I held/walked in a handstand for over 30 seconds several times this past week. I believe my success comes after holding wall handstands and building that holding strength. I will continue to work on these until I can walk on my hands nearly as well as I can walk on my feet.

Things are finally starting to roll again. It will probably take another couple weeks to get my fitness back up to where I was, but it is looking good. The combination of working out with a friend on a couple days and the change to morning workouts has been a huge boost. The morning workouts feels like I have had a shot of crack for the rest of the day. At least what I would imagine being on crack would feel like for the day.

 

Also, I am still doing really good at doing something everyday. Today, along with my warm-up and stretch, I got in more handstand and third world squat practice. 

 

Forgot to mention in my last post, but I hiked a little over 30 miles in the Grand Canyon last Saturday. A buddy of mine wanted to attempt another R2R2R and had no one to go with. I told him I would go with, but would not be doing the whole thing with him again. I have already done it twice and have no desire what-so-ever to do it again. So I went half way down with him, crossed over on a section of Tonto Trail that I hadn't done before, went to the bottom, and found an overhand outside of Phantom Ranch to wait. I ended up spending the next 8 hours napping on and off, and it was AMAZING! As the time drew near that he should have been returning, I decided to meander my way up the trail further to hopefully meet him. I ended up going like 4 miles up and waited as long as I could before turning around and heading back up. Turns out he had turned back that morning due to a possible knee injury and we had missed each other. So I found him sleeping in the car and all was great.

We are better than we know, if we can be made to see it, [then] for the rest of our lives, we'll be unwilling to settle for less.
