I only like to show my best on social media. Here I am catching rep 3 right in the feels. I was thinking about showing my triceps at the hang position, quick elbows under the bar, and an efficient jump (no donkey kick). Instead, I drove a barbell into my chest and went inside to eat waffles.
Things I did today:
-Went to church
-Went to Target
-Let my shoulders get too far out over the bar on the third rep and failed the fourth
-Pressed into the garage door
-Humped a bar in a rowing like motion. -Push-ups
It is 2:24 AM and I'm at Whataburger. I started running the Quanah Hill Massacre at 9:00 PM yesterday. It was my first night run with a headlamp. Nothing like scrambling up, down, and around a forest in the dark. I fell twice, ascended 1,430 feet, and logged 13.8 miles. It was brutal.
Ran on another publicly funded debacle today. This time it was the Trinity Forest Trail next to Joppa. Settled by freed slaves in the 1870's, Joppa is another one of those communities forgotten in Dallas.
Central Park in New York City is 840 acres. The Great Trinity Forest that borders Joppa is 6,000 acres making it the largest urban forest in America. The only thing less visited that Joppa and the Great Trinity Forest is this paved trail I ran today. Strava, the social media platform for runners and cyclists, recorded me as the 13th visitor since 2014 and the 5th in the last year.
