To set up my goals for the next year, I first need to review 2005. What works? What doesn't? What's right? What's wrong? What have I learned?
[Guess where I got THIS idea?]
In no particular order, and just to get the thread rolling, here are a few. Some are new ... some are verifications of older thoughts:
I need at very minimum 7 hours of sleep per day ... more is better up to about 10, but beyond that I get sluggish.
I can live solely off of these foods:
broccoli/other green vegs
low carb / high fiber tortillas
Carbs and I just don't get along.
I need to lift at least 3 days per week ... 6 is best. My key here is total high intensity time ... I can do about 6-8 hours per week.
I gotta have one day completely off from training.
I am more of a people person than I thought ... just not you people
I can be a real @sshole when I drink.
I do not deal well with "drama".
Back squats screw with my back.
My left elbow hurts because I burst the bursa sac in it when I was 14.
My back is messed up because I ran over myself with a quad when I was 14 or 15, and it tore up my hip, and so my real problem is my right hip.
I do actually like country music.
I need to continue addressing my hip and back.
I need to continue putting stuff over my head.
I need to continue OHSing.
I love snatches.
OK, for now that's all ... more later.
There is no substitute for putting weight over head.
If it can be done standing up, do it standing up ... this goes for peeing, lifting, etc.
I believe in "attacking" injuries. Call it active recovery or whatever, but when I aggravate my back, the best thing I can do is lots of stretching, RDLs, ice, rubbing, etc ... doing nothing and just laying around (typical MD rec) does not help. Same goes for my shoulders and elbow.
My hero is a 48 year old high school track coach that lives in Utah.
I love you guys.
While really quite good at spelling, my typing skills are lacking.
Love totally kicks my @ss.
