HA! Yeah right. Like I'm gonna take a rest day.
great article. Carr has identified a crucial (and scary) aspect of our culture.
Great article; kinda long though ; )
Amusing book report, it's just sensationalist enough to make into a real tabloid.
"Anything that is in the world when you're born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works. Anything that's invented between when you're fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things."
"The Salmon of Doubt : Hitchhiking the Galaxy One Last Time" (2002)
Now you kids get off my lawn and read a book.
My rest cycle is off a little, so I picked a fun and classic old WOD that wouldn't fry me and let me get back on schedule.
AMRAP 15 min:
9x deadlift, 155#
12x push ups
15x box jumps, 24"
8 rounds + 9 deadlift, then completed the 9th round
@Joe Northside thanks for the idea of Fran did that today with terrible results
10:54@55# now here's my but I did my pull up workout first. Bad idea 12/9/7/7/7 dead hang
It's all good though gotta keep working
Thanks to all of you for the encouragement
Rob Hole glad things are improving we are with you
Did anyone else find themselves distracted by the repeated emphasized statemens, arrowed formatting, and pictures in the article similar to how she described being distracted by hyperlinks? Maybe my brain has been overconditioned by the internet and now more easily distracted?
3 rounds of:
125lb hang power clean, 15 reps
10:45 - weak
rest 2 minutes
row 1 mile, 5:45

Rest for me for sure.
Also lamenting the fact that I can't watch the Games because I don't have a cable provider that works with ESPN3.
Bummer. Stuck watching the finals only.
