5 Weighted pull-ups, 45#

(Last set of pull ups were done body weight only)

under 14 minutes

Fear,pain,exhaustion. It was a damn good session today. But not good enough.

My legs felt like jello as I took to the road to begin running. I stopped and thought about how little sense it made to be doing this after such a harsh training session.

"It's impossible" said pride. "It's risky" said experience. "It's pointless" said reason. "Give it a try" whispered the heart.

I wanted to experience more. More fear, more pain, more exhaustion. I wanted to overcome.I want daily assurance that whatever I can set my mind to, I can achieve and tell you firsthand that it CAN be done. That is the attitude you have to face the day, face the pain and face fear with.

I am the Alpha and the Omega of myself. You can doubt me, but you can't stop me. Because I can take it. I. Am. Mine.

The hill sprints were a baptism of sorts. I felt free and alive.

“The most spiritual human beings, assuming they are the most courageous, also experience by far the most painful tragedies: but it is precisely for this reason that they honor life, because it brings against them its most formidable weapons.”
― Friedrich Nietzsche

Girls, daddy loves you.
