Getting some rowing in (I never remotely do it enough: frequency, intensity, or duration)

Getting some rowing in (I never remotely do it enough: frequency, intensity, or duration)

I was able to motivate myself enough, even after a terrible sinus headache, into doing almost seven thousand easy meters. It wasn't a lot in terms of intensity, distance, or duration, but I got it done

Running: Wed, 8 Aug 2018 20:20:19: I was hungry so I ran to Whole Foods for prepared dinner

I was hungry so I ran to Whole Foods for prepared dinner-- I put my hunger at the end of a two-mile run. Sort of an athletic food tax. I ended up taking the 16G bus home instead of making it a loop.

Well, this was only .70 miles longer than regular but it was much more scenic. The dorky hat I'm wearing is a heart rate sensor. So worth being a dork.

Third run of the rest of my life! Night run. My body was more physically tired tonight so I guess this even slower run is sort of a recovery run? My form was more like marching band leader than even slow Jogging. You know what that looks like right? In marching band? Huzzah! Activity: Run

It’s always very important to get your client on your side, on your team. If you don’t have their buy-in, they might not be willing to commit so much time, money, and resources to something that could fail–especially in a world with lots and lots of affiliate marketing and advertising products.

My all time favorite quote about creative genius is from Six Degrees of Separation

My all time favorite quote about creative genius is from Six Degrees of Separation

"I remembered asking my kids' second-grade teacher: 'Why are all your students geniuses? Look at the first grade - blotches of green and black. The third grade - camouflage. But your grade, the second grade, Matisses, every one. You've made my child a Matisse. Let me study with you. Let me into the second grade. What is your secret?' 'I don't have any secret. I just know when to take their drawings away from them.'"

Consider your own fat mass in your kettlebell workouts

Consider your own fat mass in your kettlebell workouts

I am around 300 pounds (136kg) and my fat mass is around 33%-40%. 300lbs*.33=99lbs (45kg) and 300lbs*.40=120lbs (54.5kg). It's really important for all of us plus-sized (ahem, obese), big and tall, boys and girls to consider how much extra weight we have on our bones when we take up kettlebell training.

Christening my new pair of Nike Pegasus running shoes

I know I should be running instead of writing about running but I was reinstalling run-tracking apps onto my Samsung Galaxy S8 Active and wanted to start with a fresh pair of running shoes since you can plug your runners into a couple of the apps and then when you track a run the apps will also track the mileage that you put onto your shoes.

Maybe you should be swinging a much heavier kettlebell

Maybe you should be swinging a much heavier kettlebell

The kettlebells I have been swinging every day have been too light from the beginning. I have been cycling between a 12kg, a 16kg, and a 20kg competition kettlebell but really should have been putting the work in and struggled with my 24kg kettlebell instead. Maybe you're swinging a kettlebell that's too light for you.
