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.
