Some days you have and some days you don't. Today I just did not have it all together and missed on Taming the Beast. However, if you know anything about I am the furtherest thing from disappointed and if anything more humbled and at the same time motivated. Just like the greats of sports, I want the ball in my hand on the last play and in this case I am stoked to get another chance next Friday, the 15th at the RKC. There are any number of potential reasons why I was unable to do it today and you know to a man I have no excuse other than I was unable to complete the task so I go regroup, train and prepare to go out and do it again. This is what I am most proud of, is my attitude and how healthy I feel. Many people may not truly understand how or why I feel the way/approach things the way I do. Honestly, because I believe it to be of a healthy mindset. I am not quitting, giving up, conceding, in fact none of the above. I am going to continue to train, push, and deepen my internal focus.
Where would we be with out the trials and tribulations of life? And, heck better to miss now than on the day. I know I have the strength, ability, technique, etc as I have done each move before and in fact many times for the pistol and multiple times for the press. I relish this moment and look forward to continue to process and transform it into something special and continue to deepen my purpose and character.
Plus, it felt good to have the weight in my hands and attempt the 3 moves together. The pistol is by far my best move and the Press is there just have to slow down and tighten up, get my fundamentals in place and the pull-up needs about a .25 inch to be over the top.
