The first little bit of information on Summer Jam 09 is above.  According to Dan, there's an expected 200+/- this year.  Honestly, it would not surprise me in the least.

Diet / High carb meals and... vomit...?
« on: February 26, 2009, 12:51:38 PM »
As some of you know, I've been on a quasi-Paleo diet for the past few months.  Being Asian, though, it is difficult toa void high carb meals at times.  Lately, though, something odd has been happening when I eat it in mass amounts (no effect on smaller amounts like a mini-pita).  Last three incidents:

Expensive Japanese restaurant, with two bowls of rice...  Vomited as soon as I got home.
Chinese food buffet for brother's birthday... vomited AT the restaurant.
Two plates of stuffing at work.. >_>.. (k, I just love stuffing and my boss cooked turkey).. vomited within 20 minutes.

...what the hell is going on?

Just saying.

A good scotch at the end of a bad day?  Heaven incarnate.

Consumer Whores / 5.10 insoles
« on: October 06, 2008, 11:35:24 AM »
The insole of my right Freerunner has been sliding backwards gradually as I walk, worse if I run or do wallruns or anything like that.  For the life of me, I can't get it to stay in place.  Any ideas?

Mid-Atlantic / Themed Training - Oct 16th, 7:30PM, George Mason University
« on: September 29, 2008, 04:47:41 PM »
Themed Training Meets will take place on a weekly basis, unless otherwise noted, on Thursday nights between 7:30 and 10PM at GMU.  Meeting place will be in front of Robinson Hall A.

It is suggested, and almost required, to make sure you come FRESH each week for the themed meet. This means your Wednesday night should not be out drinking with your friends, doing heavy exercise or etc etc.  The training will be intensive enough to be both taxing for your body and your central nervous system.  Preparation should include waking up at a decent hour, getting a good night's rest, and eating small meals throughout the day to keep your energy levels up.

Oct 16th Theme:
Utilisation of Hip Extension

Contact Info:
571-451-47 80

How is this meet going to work?
We will start out with a warm-up and joint rotation.  The warm-up will vary each week, but likely have similar ideas each time, depending on the themed training that will follow.  After the warm-up, time will be given to rest before a more intensive conditioning segment approaches.  The conditioning will be light in nature, but enough to tax the body before any technical training.  The conditioning may or may not directly lead into the themed training.  After the conditioning, we will train the theme in various ways before resting again.  At this point, the day is opened up for "free play" and working on individual training.  All participants are free to continue themed training if desired.  At the end of the session, a brief ten minute group stretch is mandatory.

Themed training meets are intended to avoid the monotony of drilling individual techniques unless it offers focus on a greater, overarching goal.  They are also designed to properly build a foundation in Parkour.  The foundation is a strong body and the ability to run, climb, jump, and crawl.  Themed training focuses on developing movement, not techniques; Parkour, not a tricklist.

To get to GMU from the Metro:

"Metro Rail: You can take the Orange Line to Vienna Metro Station and then take the Cue Bus or Mason to Metro Shuttle to the Fairfax Campus."

Buses are:
Mason to Metro
Cue Bus
Metro Bus: 15K, 15L, 17A, 17G, 29K
Fairfax Connector: Route 306

From there, you can use a map to find your way to Robinson Hall A (pretty much dead center of campus)

Pics & Vids / Bullfrog Sampler (plus Toronto Parkour Facility)
« on: September 19, 2008, 11:49:37 AM »
Bullfrog from PKTO put together a sampler (rare occurrence for him) which also has the benefit of showing the pretty-much complete Toronto Parkour Facility.  I know a few people are interested in seeing the place, and this is the first vid that shows it since it's been opened.  Enjoy.
