Sunday 23 August 2009

Posted by The Coach on August 22nd, 2009

“We have a fear of facing ourselves. That is the obstacle. Experiencing the innermost core of our existence is very embarrassing to a lot of people. A lot of people turn to something that they hope will liberate them without their having to face themselves. That is impossible. We can’t do that. We have to be honest with ourselves. We have to see our gut, our excrement, our most undesirable parts. We have to see them. That is the foundation of warriorship, basically speaking. Whatever is there, we have to face it, we have to look at it, study it, work with it and practice meditation with it”. Chogyam Trungpa.

“If we were to apply the above to what execution of fitness means to some of us, we could possibly understand it as follows: To comprehend oneself  is belief in ones own capabilities. Do not be disheartened when for instance a lift is missed, or a conceptional time in a physical effort not reached; do not be fearful to move move forward, see all that you do as an opportunity to learn, to grow, to understand deeper why it is you are doing what you are doing. When we become grateful for all that we experience we become better within that experience. We grow, we improve, we move forward with effortless application of action. If the path is honest yet seems arduous and taxing, it often is the correct path, our greatest lessons in life are often learnt via intense suffering, whether it be physical, psychological or emotional; and more often than not an integration of all three… SS.

    I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It’s when you know you’re licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what.—Harper Lee, To Kill a Mockingbird

    200 TGU’s with a 12kg KB, focus was on recovery and technique; rest as required. Time was about a couple mins just over an 1hr.

    Had scheduled a mountain bike ride with Pete today but that fell threw. Yesterday did about 10 rounds of heavyish sparring which I felt great, then in the afternoon went for about an 1hr and 10min run, which was meant to be a at a faster pace than what we have been doing; I felt appauling from the word go! Not too sure to why exactly, but did not stop running even if I had to shuffle. Felt OK when I finished. Pete and Joe gunned it yesterday and they were really on top of their game. Absorbed some post training nutrition and I think that is what made me feel ill for the remainder of the evening, but as I said, I woke up this morning and felt ‘normal’ again, besides the body feeling like it had been hit by a truck, probably due to the lack of conditioning form sparring, as I havn’t for a while…

    Happy with the TGU’s though…

    active recovery today… focused on abs just because they seemed to be the only thing unscathed from the return to strength bias

    did sit ups, russian twists, TGUs, planks and some other bits and pieces

    then did a 4k row at about a 2:30 average
