sunday night and last night I had perfect restful nights of sleep. If you are not injured and your workouts have sucked – fix your sleeping first!
I got up this morning totally refreshed, not sore and practically jumped into this quick little thing before my shower.
15 minutes, do as many rounds as a moderate pace allows
10 judo push-ups
10 sprinter sit-ups
I did 4 rounds and feel pretty good that energy and work capacity are starting to return. To me, work capacity has never simply been about endurance of suffering but rather the welcoming of habit and the removal of self will. my self will has and will always be lazy – pleasure seeking and pain avoidant. Work capacity then is not about sinew, tendons, ligaments, and their capacity to work, it’s more importantly about working to true capacity, which, as everyone on this board surely knows, is near boundless.
(ok, so I’m also taking flourishes as a writer today. See what happens when you get a great night’s rest?)
