|My Barefoot Badass Tee|
And I wouldn't even have this muscle if it weren't for my workovers. To say they have been difficult would be an understatement. But this is good. I mentioned a few posts back that I found a professional to help me with my strength training and running. The guy who I contacted is the same dude who helped me re-learn to run a few years back by introducing me to the Pose Method. Well, I had no idea what he was teaching me at the time was Pose, I just knew that it allowed me to run much further and longer without pain. So, once again, Seth Kotelnicki is helping me get my body all sorted. He constructs these specialized workouts for me on a monthly basis and I try to follow them with precision. Before even beginning my plan, though, he met with me to assess my fitness, form, and goals. Not only did he write a customized program for me (including mobility work, run workouts, and strength and conditioning) but he gave me information on other key components of fitness like sleep and nutrition. (You can read more about my Paleo Diet trial here) The cool thing about Seth is that he isn't pushy or righteous with the information he gives. He presents it in a professional manner and leaves it up to me to make a final judgement. He would have been totally cool if I hadn't even tried Paleo. And he totally respected my diet fails when I needed a serious cocktail...errrr... or two... while on the 30 day Paleo Diet trial. Not only that, but he's been really patient with all my stupid questions.
|My ERG workover.|
So I plan to continue my workover punishments because even though its been tough (and often times embarrassing), the end result and how I feel overall has been nothing less than impressive. The true test of it all will be at my triathalon in July. Who knows? By then, maybe I'll have really earned a bonafide badass reputation.
