Sunday 19 December 2010

Posted by The Coach on December 18th, 2010

“In life we are constantly presented with difference. This difference at times presents itself in many various shapes. People communicate differently, conduct themselves differently, speak differently, understand differently, learn differently, act differently, behave differently and simply think differently to ourselves. This can go on and on, there are vast differences within human capacity and potential that may infer segregation. This is not entirely true. Three major points:

The first being patience; for without patience we can open ourselves up to multiple truths and expose ourselves to various possibilities beyond our initial views. The second point is: that as many differences as there are, there are also foundational and underlying similarities which have the incredible potential to enhance humanhood (if there exists such a word). These similarities include both biological (which are the foundations for our existence) and sociocultural. The third, (which ties the first and second point to a deeper level of understanding) is acceptance of this apparent extreme diversity. Not only acceptance but also recognising that similarities are more important that differences. I do not want to lead us on a tangent, for the human condition in all its glory is complex and multifaceted in its being. The important factor is recognising that as people we are exposed to different environmental conditions and learning’s, and our internal thought process along with our emotional interpretations shape how we interact with the outside world. The colliding problem is that with often a lack of anticipatory thought and highly active emotions our communication and understanding of others and ourselves is misconstrued.

There is an integrated method I propose to self asses and provide a deeper understanding of both human interaction and any given situation beyond anticipated scope. If you are interested you can always contact me. But what is truly important here is again the crucial existence of greater (by ‘greater’ I mean look, feel and understand beyond your own subjective circumstances, to simplify this refer to the: “walk a mile in my boots before you judge me” mentality) understanding and acceptance of diversity. Diversity of approach, thought, beliefs, ideology. This does not mean accept extreme cases of cruelty because they are staple cultural practices of certain societies.  No, it means understand where they stem from and why and it may place you in a more powerful position to deal with the situation  more adequately because of your greater and deeper understanding of what is occurring around you, without disrupting and upsetting the balance of you and who you are” Stef Sifandos.

Special mention to Pete Yeates (one of our longtime athletes and advocates) who is partaking in the 6 inch Marathon in Dwellingup. This is a 46km event all performed off road! BAM! Go get them brother!

    What we have to do… is to find a way to celebrate our diversity and debate our differences without fracturing our communities. – Hillary Clinton

    Late morning semi epic self destruction for me, dry heat was not nice… Though I wish I was at the ladder this morning guys, workout sounded great, godd work people!

    With Steve and his bro, experimenting at different locations with work capacity and stamina in mind.

    3 movements:
    1. 1 x 600m run
    2. Max ladders (Wireless hill park) with SS special bag (43kg)
    3. Max ladders with 2 x 17.5kg DB’s, stopping half way and executing 10 renegade rows, then at the top 5 x push press
    *Once everyone has done this once, this would = 1 round
    *Gentlemans agreement to change as quick as possible, changes were no longer than 30sec.
    *Single points were assigned for completion of 1 x ladder / no points for the run. 1 point would = from bottom to top. Partial ladders did not count towards total point scoring

    5 RFT of:
    600m run (this dictated the pace and how many ladders the other 2 athletes could complete)
    Max Ladders of tower at Wireless hill park with SS special (43kg)
    Max ladders with 2 x 17.5kg DB’s, stopping half way and executing 10 renegade rows, then at the top 5 x push press
    TOTAL TIME = 45.15min
    My score = 20 points. I did 3 full ladders with the sandbag everytime and 1 full ladder with the DB’s everytime

    Finisher (untimed)
    Bear crawl down the ladder.

    Quite hard, as you can see the ladder is quite short, but the accumulation here was compounding!

    Lots that can be done here, it is also quite quiet and no people about…
