Training Board is…

Training Board is basically my gym notebook.

In theory, I can also blog in a more public spirited way about weightlifting, nutrition, weight loss, etc. But mostly, I just use this blog to track my workouts. And surfing.

If anything I have posted seems useful to you, let me know with a comment.

About Me

I'm a level I "sports performance certified" USAW coach, and I train, and work as a trainer at Asheville Strength and Conditioning, a great little gym here in Asheville, N.C.

I work with clients who want to get strong and fit, and am especially happy with helping older or detrained individuals.

My own training now is more focused on developing strength and using basic lifts and classic strength and conditioning techniques. A lot of the older portions of this blog deal with CrossFit and reflect my journey into fitness self-awareness. I first discovered CrossFit, back in late 2008. I learned a lot from CrossFit's "fitness as sport" model of training -- and benefited tremendously from training with my friends at CrossFit Asheville -- and furthermore I must credit my interest in CrossFit for opening my eyes to the larger world of training for strength athletics, Olympic-style weightlifting, powerlifting, and other arcane approaches to moving the Iron around.

Rest Days • July 3, 2009, at 1:04 am

Family Outing / Green Lake

Short sleep, about 6 hours, from 11:00 to 5:00 am, then a leisurely day that started as a rest day. But seeing as my bro-in-law, John, wanted to go running with me on about a 3 mile route, I knew it wouldn’t be a real rest day. Turned out to be a day of heavy exertion! We took the kids to the Seattle Aquarium, and lunch on the waterfront, and grocery shopping in Pike’s Place. For much of this time I carried Lena on my back in the pack, until my already aching muscles were screaming. Then in the late afternoon, John and I ran the biking/running trail around Green Lake, which is about 3 miles. The only thing that made it a “rest day” was that we allowed ourselves to stop for water, and we didn’t keep time. Ahh. I felt pretty broke down on this run, but I still plan to work out tomorrow (Friday, July 3rd) at Level 4 CrossFit Seattle.

Laptop battery is dying. Good night!
