What's Going On the shiznit

But with regard to wanting to add VO2 max training to Tuesday and Thursdays, it's very nice to sleep in every other day. Like how you can deal with three months of winter if you get little thirty-two degree breaks between the really bitter cold.

Or like how in the beginning the earth was without form and void and God divided the light from the darkness, not saying that I'm God. Just saying that if it's good enough for God, it's gotta be good enough for me. It works better to divide the days that I do pushups from the days that I don't, instead of pushups being without form all over my shiz. And sleep is probably a better divider between pushups than, you know, suicides. Because sleep is more different from pushups than suicides are different from pushups.

I think I will do six weeks of 300s, and then switch them out for suicides. By then, I will be bored with 300s and it will be spring...

I'll tell you the best thing I did was to quit Monday Orbit derby skates, as much as I loved them. I mean, I quit because they were wiping me out period. But since then, I'm actually seeing an increased positive energy difference—not just a decreased negative difference— mostly from the earlier bedtime. I'm still out of the house and on my skates every other week teaching the derby lite park district ladies, but in bed by ten-thirty.

If I were an ideal Buddha, I would enjoy sleep for itself. But truthfully, it took seeing sleep as an active part of my fitness program to motivate myself to go to bed.

Which is why I haven't been stretching at night, but that's being covered by the 300s. I get home and finish any pushups that I have left, and get in bed. There's a little place in pit crew's underarm that I like to lie in and watch the ten minutes of terrible movie that I'm going to last for. It's going to take the rest of the month to finish The Omen II...
