    If you want to buy fight tickets early, so you don’t have to wait in line at cowboys, bring in $20 tonight to Mike. He will be picking them up from Clay tonight or on Thursday.

    Also, both Chandler and Peter have generously offered to drive us…thanks guys!!! We are working out the logistics, but everyone that wants to attend, plan on meeting at the gym, and bringing $10 cash to cover the rental fee.

    What time does the fight start?
    Also, I did the math very wrong yesterday, so I did not beat you and it wasn’t as big of a PR as I thought it was. That will teach me to attempt math during the post workout brain shut down. Still, thinking that I had done that well really affected me, and made me more determined to push today. Made me realize that negativity could be defeating my efforts. Going to keep riding the high into today’s workout and beyond. Time to push hard.

    I can’t wait for the MMA event! I also want to see if there is any interest in doing a corn maze or haunted house either this or next weekend.

    I still hate sit-ups but I think I improved on walk lunges.

    Totally. Got super passionate about everything except for crossfit in the past month. Only solution I’ve found is just to tough through it. Something will catch your eye soon enough and you’ll be back to pushing yourself harder than you were before.
    Either that, or you’ll wake up with some extra pudge on your belly. That always results in a PR for me.

    The Australian aboriginals did not maintain the hypothetically faster pace for the full 100m or 200m like Bolt does. Top olympic weightlifters (as well as football players) can beat Bolt at the 40yd dash.
    The Neanderthal species (with their supposeably advantageous shorter limbs and bigger muscle mass) got hunted and eaten by modern man.
    And the fact that Rwanda Tutsi can jump 10cm higher than the current record, means that modern man is capable of this (as the Rwanda Tutsi are modern man).
    That said, it’s certainly telling of how our society has declined physically that we need to compare everyday members of lost cultures to our olympic athletes to save some face. Maybe physical education shouldn’t be looked at as a joke in school.

    These running related deaths just don’t make sense.

    Maybe Congress should do something about this.

    Definitely. I go through this waaay more often than I should. I just go through the motions on the bad days and wait for a workout I enjoy to come up. That usually helps me get back into it. Or, if one doesn’t come up, make one up I like.

    I translated portions of a text by the Roman historian, Tacitus when I was in high school. He related several feats that a legionnaire had to accomplish to be considered for battle duty. Even if Tacitus exaggerated by 100% (doubled their abilities), the average battle ready soldier in the Roman army would demolish just about everyone in our gym. It’s a rather humbling thought.

    Such as? That’d be interesting to know. I assumed they would be stronger than average people, but what kind of physical feats could they do?
