Welcome to 50!

Phew. I am finally sitting down.

The last few weeks have been a whirlwind. On the Fourth I turned 50. I took a few days off to relax and play… Hanging out with family and training. Then back to work, helping my clients meet their goals…

A couple of weeks ago I went to Keystone with my lovely wife. Where we spent five nights and most of six days sweltering in our room at night, eating delicious food, and going to seminars. She went to a sewing seminar put on by Silhouette Patterns.

I spent at least 6 hours a day refining my kettlebell techniques, learning some new bodyweight exercises (as well as refining many that I already knew), dabbling for a couple of hours in the Olympic snatch (more refinement), and getting to learn the basics of Active Isolated Stretching (AIS).

Get back home and jump into work, where I find out two of our trainers have quit… So gotta pick up extra clientele – 4 new clients, along with my regulars – not a bad thing at all!

I am about two days from finishing round two of a hypertrophy cycle. I am currently setting up a new cycle that will start on Saturday. Muay Thai and pistol work are hot and grooved, while Jiu-jitsu is cold (I have only been on the mats three times since FightFit stopped at Golds back in March). I have even managed a few stick and knife sessions recently (Jared and Jarlo would be so proud! ;))…

I don’t know what 50 is supposed to feel like… But this isn’t exactly how I thought it would be when I was thirty… I feel like I could take on the world…

And maybe even win.
