THU: Biked a few miles. Wrote a song. Bruises I hadn't seen before on L leg. Diet stinks all week - too much bad carbs. Slept well, feel great. Kid book today?

FRI: A few miles biking. Stood on wall swinging "mace". A van of homeless guys drove past me to set up camp in the woods.

Stupid mistakes wreaked havoc on diet, exercise, and sleep the last week. I was able to get in short walks and bikes, and played outside every day. I took some naps, and was able to meet 1 of my 3 "brain" goals.

SAT: Bike + walk (and read books that inspired me to write). Wrote a bit.
SUN: Helped tear down set. Jumped around a little. Stuff in pockets and loose nails prevented much real jumping.

MON: Biked a couple miles
TUE: Only biked to work.

WED: I lose conditioning too fast. Walk. Dead lift rock x10. Wall pops [in slippas] x10. Barefoot: Bent arm hang shimmy on soccer goal, sprint one field length, run one length [x3]. And I was done in, so I climbed a fence and hit the pool for freestyle/ rest [4 lengths total]

WED PM: 50+ usher from KC saw PK vids on recent Russia trip. Thought of me. I was doing some minor barefoot vaults and stuff. Went from that to guitar - Put slippas on after we played. Got in a LOT of trouble from my wife. Barefoot = breaking the rules.

DGHS: 10 pm to 5:15 am. Tried to catch micronaps where I could. Exorcise in between - lot of walking, some pulls, chin-ups, basic learning exercises, moving stances, all the basic hand strikes, dynamic stretching.

THU: Walked barefoot to work - I must have a bruise under R heel from hitting that lamp post - felt it last night in slippas, and again when I hit large gravel area. I put my shoes on for that. Popped wall to work, QM under/ thru the bushes.

THU: Barefoot: Walk, lift container of water (19 gallons = 158#?) x10, rock climb (static holds, small moves), supports (inclined and uneven level), more climbing, 10 more lifts, swam 6 lengths.

The places I looked had 8.33, 8.34, 8.35# per gallon. More than that, I don't know how much water was in the barrel. It was sloshing and leaking. So maybe the first lift was 160#, but by the 10th, it was down to 150# or so? Doesn't matter. After 2 weeks of little upper body work, yesterday was too much. I'm feeling it today. Esp in the lats?

FRI: Swam, but my heart wasn't in it. Stressed.
SAT: Up til 6 am, got a couple hours sleep, feel like crap. Biking and walking really slow, but back of throat still feels raw. On the plus side I may have FINALLY found another job.

SUN: A little rail vaulting in the mall, at church, while out for food with my wife and friends -- all the times you're not supposed to. ;D

MON: Had to come into work early. Lovely stress-filled Monday - I was wiped by 9 am. I pulled it off tho - got a replacement piece of equipment installed 5 seconds before it needed to be used. Then the phone and IM started going off. For MN = This is my testing week. Still trying to shake post-nasal drip - before it's worse.

Couple little things:
1. Erwan follows a paleo diet like Mark Sisson suggests: Plants, animals, no grain, no legumes [beans]...
2. I watched a little of the BarclayCard PKFR World Championships. As soon as the first guy got hurt on his second trick, I was starting to get bummed. They had cool tricks, and they're in great shape, but that's not the direction I want to go.
3. Read a little on Krav Maga` - wonder how it compares to the MN combat system?
4. I'm STILL waiting on BionicGrape for the missing pages...

MON: Thought about biking 20 miles to do errands. After 1 I gave up, went home and got the car.
TUE: Slept bad - due to cold I'm fighting? Apnea. Woke myself and wife up. Biked to work.

Comments:
1. Is paleo just another fad diet? Early indications seem to be "yes". It's based on romanticism, not so much on proof?
2. Maui - you can either go natural, or go to the dark side [free running/ tricking]. I choose natural.
3. I can't tell - I don't know either system well enough. Looked at "Guide" last night. Don't WANT to translate it...
4. Still. Dude.

THU: I tried to lift. Only got 10 reps. That stinks.  :-[
FRI - AM: Still rather sick. This whole month has been a waste  >:( 
FRI - NOON: Still not at 100%. But if you were sick, and had to swim or run, or stay underwater... so I did it. I'm so close to 30 points, with rope climb and 1500m left to do... If I climb > 8m and run < 5:20, I'll be at "superior" [36].
MON: +29.9 ... so close. Oh well. Heal up and try again this month.

[April: +12.1, May: +28.65, June: +35.5]

Here's the LINK to the tests...

JULY TESTS:

100 15:56 +0.4 [NOT 0!]       500 1:43 -0.3                1500 5:38.53 +1.15
High 39"  +1.9                      High+ 48" +2.2               Long 99" +5.2 
Long+ 141" +0.8                   Rope 6m +1                   Lift 25.5* +12.75 [32 @ 70# = 25.5 @ 88 - used bar]
Throw 29'6" + 25' +5.75          Swim 1:26 +12              Dive  :28 +1.8

+44.65

AUGUST TESTS:

100 15:52 +0.5                    500   1:41 -0.1              1500  5:50 +0.5
High 40"  +2.3                      High+ 46" +1.6               Long 96" +4.4 
Long+ 120" -1.8                   Rope  5m +0                   Lift 8 [10] +4
Throw 27'6" + 26'4" +5.5        Swim 1:26 +12                Dive  :20 +1

+12.5 with 6 tests done, 6 to go. +16.5 7 done, 5 to go. +29.4 11 done, 1 to go.   +29.9 Close...

I'll set 40 as my goal, swim later in the week, and hope I've healed by then. [FRI: Maybe a little better. Going to be hard to even hit 30 this time. I wish I didn't have to count these tests. FRI NOON: Happy with the swim! It keeps saving my butt!]
The bottoms of my feet are stained green from spray on grass seed. I did the jumps and 100 barefoot. [FRI: I did the 500 in SLIPPAS! MON: I also did the 1500 in slippas]
On running high jump at 49" I caught the cord hard with my left instep. Lovely welt. [FRI: Was raised TUE, but now just looks like a normal cut. Right where my shoe is, so I didn't run in shoes ;D]
Post 800 is coming up. Need to think of something profound. [Nothing profound]

WED: Post 800... coughing up gunk. What fun! I did NOT test today. I did a few vaults, and some very minor buildering. It didn't feel good, and I had to play guitar, so I took it easy.

Looks like I got job #3... of course, job #2's only given me like 10 hours this year, so it really doesn't count.
This will give me another 20 hours/ week, plus driving at night.

Another application at a different place looks like it may get results. Maybe I'll do that in my spare time.

Finished testing for the month - it's DOWN. I guess it's to be expected, since I was sick over the entire testing week. I don't know what's a realistic goal for September. I guess 36, but try for 45?

I start training tomorrow at job #3. Going to have to become creative with workouts... like I wasn't already?

MON: Also did some random low wall vaults and pulls throughout the day - not organized enough to be GTG. I went in the pool after running the 1500. That was a mistake.

TUE: Biked to job #1, job #3, and home. Training went well.
WED: Slippers and BF. Rail and wall vaults, minor buildering and climbing at KC. I'm getting so skinny, even my 32s are falling off my butt. I'm having to go back to pants from pre-marriage?

THU: Biked & a tiny bit of jumping around. Some of my landings were loud and heavy. It's the shoes. Right.

"Yearbook Yourself"... funny. My actual photos through the years are even worse!

SUN: Minor vaults @ KC. "Wrestled" with some kids after.

MON: Tree pulls and slow tree work [banyan has been chopped]. Kongs, ran on the beach, deadlift an easy rock, swam, vaults TIRED, jogged home, did a couple little jumps, a couple kongs and some fakey muscle-ups.

MON PM: @ KC: Vaults, very bad front flip tries [somersaults onto mats], hang shimmy up inclined girder, but then had to drop high onto concrete. SMs have no front-foot cushion. TIRED.

I'm going to take time off this log. "Fast" it until October. Still plan to post 1/day on the Hawaii forum
