Ultra Training Update #1

New Year! Ultra Running Training Update Cold weather, cold showers, body composition changes, and a cold. Progress, perhaps not exactly at the level I want, but on every front i’m making progress. Re-wiring routines to influence behavior is a prococess. Often I read and see advice and motivational videos say do “X” get “Y” Results – this always misses the key compenent that underlies the process and is consequently where people experience the most failure in changing habits, diets, routines, and ultimately behavior. Between the path of x and y is a repeating cycle of will/intent vs old behavior it

Running Man Episode: 0

Once upon a time in days long past I made a webcomic – before a meme was a meme, stumbleupon was all the rage, and before the fall of digg.

Ultra Running Week#2 Update: Behind The Scenes

0 miles.

I decided that I should focus on getting the knee right and wanted to get a good chunk of the technical work done on the site. So I took the twofer. This site, all the graphics, the custom coding, the social media automation, etc is all some machination of open source projects, my skill, and useful/interesting interactions. So, for the curious I decided to open up the curtain a bit, talk about what is going on from the technical side of this project and some of those goals as that journey runs parallel with my physical journey.

As all of my projects I take a pretty fluid approach so the mechanics and scope can certainly change.
