Sunday 20 December 2009

Posted by The Coach on December 19th, 2009

“As we approach what the majority of the Western World consider the birth of one of Humanity’s most known human beings, I can not help but reflect deeply upon the past years circumstances. Whether you are a Christian who follows a lineage of Agapistic Ethics, or if you are attached to other Faiths, such as: Islamic, Baha’i, Hindu, Buddhist, Agnostic or you live your life by Atheistic principals. In the grand scheme of events what is important is the act itself.

What is relevant is how you live your life. A great starting point is self reflection. This is key to a truly blissful and giving life. Ancient Greek Philosophers were contemplating these ‘rules to live your life by’ thousands of years ago, as equally were the Vedics and Upanishads, the Egyptians, Sumerians and Babylonians. The point is that for thousands of years across various cultures close and afar the human condition has been drawn to critical, inner self reflection as key to leading a ‘good’ life.

We thank you for all that you have given us and in return we wish you wellness, we wish you plenty and we wish you give more than you receive. There is tremendous knowledge and wisdom that comes with giving selflessly and plentiful. Whether you give money, time, assistance, emotional or psychological support; whatever it is, if it is sincere it is worth its weight in gold.

It does not have to be Christmas, nor do not need to be Christian or associated with any religion or even spiritual group to give and to help others, you can simply perform this act because you are in a privileged position or have the capacity to do so”… SS.

What will you sacrifice for another???

    (1) The sacrifice which causes sorrow to the doer of the sacrifice is no sacrifice. Real sacrifice lightens the mind of the doer and gives him a sense of peace and joy. The Buddha gave up the pleasures of life because they had become painful to him. – Mahatma Gandhi

    (2) Be the change you want to see in the world. – Mahatma Gandhi

    I found out this week that I would sacrifice my life to stop a car thief! Stupid. Very stupid. Amazing what one will do without thinking. It is only upon taking part in the self-reflection that Stef writes about that one finds clarity in what is important to them. What is meaningful and worthwhile.

    Sacrifice for what you believe is important and worthwhile. Sacrifice by giving. Because you can.

    What you sow, you reap.

    Had a leisurely 46km marathon through the bush trails in Dwellingup, time = 5hrs 21min.

    I learnt that I have to train longer distances at a faster speed to condition my legs for clearing metabolic acid at race pace. I hit the halfway point comfortably in about 2.hrs 20min, then my legs tightened up and would not perform for many of the uphill sections and had to walk these, even had to walk some of the flat sections to allow the spasm in my legs to subside.

    I am very happy that I completed this race on just once a week of sport specific training, and my recovery is simply amazing with only minimal soreness in my left leg (old injury that needs sorting out), the rest of my body feels bloody good, even just went and did some xmas shopping.

    awesome effort Pete!! truly, well done!

    at the cell with Brad and Stef this morning.

    1. front squat ladder 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 reps @ body weight (87.5kg)

    2. snatch grip deadlift and hand stand push-ups ladder (DL @ BW(87.5kg), HSPU head to floor)
    1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10 reps

    3. ring dips and dead hang pull ups (any grip) – ladder
    3 rounds continuous of
    1,2,3,4,5,6 reps

    this took a little over an hour and we werent resting during complexes. for each complex one of us would do the first rep then next person does a rep and so on, as we built up to the top of ladder. on sets with more than one movement eg.the deadlifts HSPU, the first person did one of each movement then the next person did one of each and so on. so overall a good workout in terms of volume of reps and total weight moved, however, intensity was a little low but hey, it is sunday!!
