19,000 miles and running

My journey of 19,000 miles starts with a single squat workout. Then it gets a little trickier for the next 14 days, going: Toronto-Denver-Seattle-Vancouver-Hong Kong-Bangkok-Pattaya-Bangkok-Kuala Lumpur-Hong Kong-Toronto.

What am I doing? Long story, and frankly, I don't even know for the most part...but will keep you updated. (Alas, Seattle and VC are connections only.)

My training today:
My workout: Squats, Box Jumps, Glute Ham Raise, KB Swings.

By the way, someone asked me for my favorite's a formula I would start with...It would include narrow stance goblet squats, swings, and some type of pushup.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tips:
"The failure to act is much more often the product of inner, emotional resistance than external resistance. To move forward you must give up your story, whether it is excuses about your childhood, lack of education, your "bad luck", your unsupportive family, your low metabolism, where you live, etc." - Dan Kennedy...

...Tough love. Harsh words. But helpful words, to those that heed them and really think about why we act the way we do when we want to achieve something.

Being average is worse that below-average. At least those below-average have something to fight for. Average just encourages sedated living.

You can't go your whole life blaming everyone else for the life you've gotten yourself into. You control your reactions. You control your life...

..."Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom." - Viktor E. Frankl

Fight the urge to remain average,
