Lunch Pail Day

I have been definitely frustrated by the Open Games and my performance, to the point I have been complaining, rationalizing etc...   This has to stop.  Its just a workout.  When I think about the negative energy I have consumed its embarrassing.  If anyone hears me even say something that remotely sounds like whining please stop me.  I think sometimes training the mind is every bit as important as training the body.   Its more than confidence.   There was a great radiolab program on the topic.  It was called  Help! and focused on what do you do when your own worst enemy The program  looks for ways to gain the upper hand over those forces inside us--from unhealthy urges, to creative insights--that seem to have a mind of their own. Check it out here.  Radio Lab - Help!

Strength: Weighted Pullups 3-3-3-3-3 (dead hang)
 25,35, 40, 45, 55 and then 70 (2) failed on third attempt
3 Rounds
Run 400m
10 Pullups
10 Burpees

I was hoping to be able to average 2minutes a round. This ended up being a pipedream.
Round 1 - first run 1:29 total time 2:20
Round 2 - 2:52 - 5:13
Round 3 2:45 - 7:56

This has to be closer to 7,  Shows my running needs work.

I will check out the Radio Lab show. Here's one of my favorite relevant quotes.

"The greatest battles of life are fought out daily in the silent chambers of the soul."
— David O. McKay

Our biggest battles are within.
