workout, 8.21.2014

I drove to GSP this morning. Arrived at 6:20am. Had to see Carrie off on her next big adventure. I didn’t like it. Saying goodbye.

Goodbyes are the hardest.

Spent the morning interviewing/assisting on a photoshoot with Clemson football head coach Dabo Swinney. His wife asked how I stayed in shape.

The easy answer: I squat it out. Especially on days I have to say goodbye.

A: Front squat

  • 5-5-5-5 // 205# — Weight scheme for each set: 60-65-70-75% of 1RM. Worked out to 160#, 175#, 190#, and 205#. Roughly.

B: 20 minutes

  • For the first 10 minutes, alternating 30 sec Airdyne, 30 sec rest
  • For the second 10 minutes, alternating 30 sec rowing, 30 sec rest

Quads and butt were toast at the end. Oh well. A good workout, I guess.

I have a sore throat from all this random sinus shit getting stirred up by my feels lately. Going to take a Dayquil and go to bed.

workouts, 8.19.2014

A: Back squats

  • 8-8-8-8 // 225# — Rep scheme from last week, expanded to include an additional set: 60-65-70-75%. This time, I actually lifted the correct amount of weight for my 1RM: 180-195-210-225#. Pretty fucking difficult. Had to grind my way through every rep.

B:

  • 2 minutes, AMRAP: KB swings (72#)
  • 2 minutes rest
  • 2 minutes, AMRAP: DUs
  • 2 minutes, rest
  • 2 minutes, AMRAP: pull ups

31 / 15 / 28 Rx — This was terrible. I think the back squats wiped me out. And then the 72# KB wasn’t doing me any favors. That thing was heavy as hell. And the DUs were just attempts, but my shoulders were already kind of toast. And to finish up with the pull ups. Just painful.

"We don’t like pictures like this. It is not good to deduce an entire country to the image of a person reaching out for food. It is not good for people to see us like this, and it is not good for us to see ourselves like this. This gives us no dignity. We don’t want to be shown as a country of people waiting for someone to bring us food. Congo has an incredible amount of farmland. An incredible amount of resources. Yes, we have a lot of problems. But food is not what we are reaching for. We need investment. We need the means to develop ourselves.”

Warm Hands, Warmer Heart
Probably the best hot chocolate I’ve had. That’s not a stretch, really. I can’t remember the last time I had hot chocolate that wasn’t from a Swiss Miss packet. Perhaps the thick chocolate sauce that accompanied a churro in Madrid, back in 2009.
A little bitter and smooth—melted dark chocolate on your tongue, except not quite as thick, not quite as rich and overwhelming.
None of that cloying sweetness that you get from hot cocoa packets.
And I suppose it doesn’t hurt that the fine folks at Tandem provided this bev to us for free.
The barista’s reason?
He saw me taking a photo of the cappuccino, felt that it wasn’t photo worthy, and decided that a hot chocolate would be a better photo option. So he took it upon himself to make this for us.
That’s one way to get a loyal customer.

"The rise of haute couture in the early 20th century dovetailed with advances in communication and travel, and so, too, the public’s unusual interest in this rarefied world. There are well-known stories of Paris policemen and taxi drivers being able to recognize couture, like a cop in the ’30s who refused to arrest a feminist agitator on the grounds that she was dressed by Molyneux. By the ’60s, everyone knew about the latest fashion, if not from Mary Quant, then from the Beatles. But sometime in the late ’80s, fashion discovered semiotics. Clothes suddenly acquired meaning (think of the efforts to “decode” a Helmut Lang show or almost any by Martin Margiela). You truly needed to be an expert to appreciate why a jacket was worn inside out or why a dress that made you look like a bag lady was cool. Susan Sontag described a similar shift in the arts in the mid-60s, noting that “the most interesting and creative art of our time is not open to the generally educated; it demands special effort; it speaks a specialized language.” Today, as high fashion moves closer to mass media — with brand-hosted YouTube channels, films, huge spectacles — there is pressure to simplify. I also wonder whether the surge of new brands — their shows often crammed with weird and banal designs — hasn’t caused elite designers to rethink matters. Hence more straightforward clothes."

Before // During

The Fiesta crepe: shredded chicken, black beans, corn, salsa, and sour cream.

A quesadilla, basically, but oh my, the finely shredded chicken really makes for a consistent bite. There’s chicken in every bite—not just the surprisingly large chunk that makes it into every third bite.

And not too much in the way of beans. I’m not a fan of so many beans because they tend to weigh me down instead of just filling me up. Plus farts.
