1 Mile Kettlebell Walk

Alright, today was Challenge Day. Now don't tell Bobby Maximus we did it this way, especially because it went faster than expected.

Today's challenge: 1-Mile KB Walk with 53lb kettlebells. Team version with 2014 TT client of the year, J-Roc. I go 1 minute, J-Roc goes 1-minute. 18:25. Quicker than expected. Next time, 70lb kettlebells. Also, it needed some type of conditioning finisher...will try again in October after Canadian Thanksgiving. Might add 100 burpees or something to round it out.

Today's Nutrition:
No Coke Zero, but I did have a stevia-sweetened Zevia Cola prior to the KB Mile. Probably didn't need it. Back on CASS-Free tomorrow through to Wednesday when I will have a pre-Deadlift Green Tea.

And still no plastic bottles.

Today's Kickbutt Mindset Tip:
Challenge yourself. Do a race. Take a test. Grind it out. You'll see what you are made of, you'll discover that you can do it. It'll change you. Stick-to-your-guns. Know what matters to you. Never, ever give up on achieving it. And realize that everything ends. The good times, the bad. So enjoy the good ones more, and persevere through the bad knowing you will make it.

Stay strong. You can - and WILL - do it. I believe in you.

Challenge yourself,

Craig Ballantyne, CTT

PS - One more...

Challenge: If you have a fear of missing out, don't go. Stay home. If you envy nicer cars, sell yours and buy the cheapest, safest model possible. If you find yourself wanting to buy a big, fancy house, downsize your accommodations. Conquer your worry. Destroy your jealousy. Live simply.
