Re: Unfluffing

Okay, so this past week, got one workout in and then spent three days at a camp retreat for middle schoolers. Have spent all weekend recouping. It was actually kind of awesome living the outdoor active clean living (although eating crap) life for a few days. Gotta figure out how to make that a more ...

sigfrith777 or something like that. Glenn was a lifter's lifter and coach, and I too will miss him. His stroke diminished him somewhat, but he recovered. But the whole thing with Muscle Driver USA was weird, here he was, Pendlay bars, Pendlay bumpers, Pendlay DoWin shoes, then nothing. Well, there ...

Re: NOT Born That Way

The number of Americans 18 to 34 who are comfortable interacting with LGBTQ people slipped from 53% in 2017 to 45% in 2018 – the only age group to show a decline, according to the annual Accelerating Acceptance report. And that is down from 63% in 2016. Folks get tired of being bullied into "accept...

Re: Coach Chef

The porch herb garden makes a huge difference for me. Fresh herbs are invaluable. And I need to get back on the veggie box thing. I have squirrels that have made it impossible to keep a proper garden so I accept payment from some of my clients in the form of fresh vegetables from their gardens. I al...

Re: This is the Fountain of Youth. Prove me Wrong.

The fountain of youth is a lifelong experiment in what keeps you on the positive side of recovery, moving pain free, and continuing to get better at things as you get older. It starts with keeping a training journal and paying attention to your results, both long term and short term. And periodicall...

Competed on Saturday. Generally a good day although sheaf was sub-par again, only got 18 feet, and hammer was just stupidly bad, 57 feet. I'm apparently moving in slow motion. But, competition prs on weights for distance, 40'2" on heavy weight (21 lbs) and 55'7" on light weight (14 lbs). I won weigh...

Re: Unfluffing

Last throwing practice before comp on Saturday. Looking relatively good. Hitting over 55 on lwfd consistently, stones are hit or miss, hwfd sometimes good, if I remember speed I can get over 60 on hammer which clearly needs work.

Re: Unfluffing

Ran three miles on Wednesday, spent all day yesterday running errands. Going to try and combine two workouts this afternoon and then throw with my daughter again tonight. Weight is all over the place, need to cut the booze and get back on my food plan. Too much fat, not enough vegetables.

Re: Unfluffing

Spent a week at the beach with all the kids, a neurotic trophy wife (not me) and the rest of my family. Got some training in, got some running in, got some really bad surfing in, but I didn't break my neck so win-win. Back to it this week at the gym and throwing. My next games is a week from Saturday.

Wednesday, 3 mile run with cross country team, hour riding lesson in the crazy horse but surprisingly, she remembered what we did Saturday and seemed to be trying her best. (I'm a sucker for effort.) Today, stone, hammer, wob, and sheaf. I switched to a shuffle on open stone and its giving me anothe...

Sunday, did shoulders and finished with kb swings on the minute for 12 minutes. Monday, did some sheaf and wob.

Some weight for distance with the 14 and 21. Hit 55 and 36 pretty consistently, still need to work on the release.

2.5 mile run.

And then an hour riding lesson on the crazy horse who has an anxiety attack if you give her too much (any) leg pressure. She did not buck me off, we learned to leg yield, I got a Charlie horse in my right glute.
