It's been over six months since I've kept a training log (Pursuit of my Happiness). I've seen my performance come and go over the last few years as I've been training for training sake which I've considered GPP to my own detriment. A new endeavor in my life has created a need for fitness again and I want to share this new journey of pursuing my abilities. Previously, in the military, I would have been considered a tactical athlete in todays lingo. At that time, passing fitness requirements was simply a byproduct of training for personal pursuits of triathlons, mountaineering, cycling, etc. Fast forward, marriage and four kids later, those personal pursuits are not as common and training has been simply a hobby. This new journey is intended to be exactly opposite and down the tactical athlete road with the byproduct being recreational pursuits. I've spent the last decade doing program after program because there was not a reason not to do them. I had the time and I had the motivation. Unfortunately, many programs are stand alone and not built with the idea of connecting one to another in a unified way. Some I like(d) more than others. Some helped achieve one goal while departing from another. Some were park bench programs, others were bus bench programs. Some had positive adaptations and others had negative performance adaptations. The overall benefit to the entire journey thus far is that I know what I like, what I don't, what I need, what I don't, what works for me, what doesn't, what I'll comply with, what I won't, what injures me, what doesn't, and the list goes on and on. Enjoy following along as I log my training and experiences of this new phase of my life.
