Road to becoming a Ninja warrior pt 2

As a friend of mine once said, “If the first one was too easy.”

I generally enjoy thinking of my week in terms of how many yoga sessions, magic tournaments, and cups of coffee can I squeeze into 168 hours. Lost? Confused yet? Where’s my mediocre work out I’m going to have to scale? You might be asking yourself; don’t worry I’m trying to channel a much more talented writer, dare say friend (Mark Nestico), to consider why this work out was important enough to write about.
The point is as much like the half-moon position I held during yoga class today it takes a lot of steps before you begin to understand balance. So, to myriad of concessions I make so I can balance a happy and well lived life… that also coincides with my goal of not completely failing at a ninja warrior trial; or at least while knowing 23% percent of my week is literally just sitting at a computer working (granted I do have a kneeling chair); that percentage is not even considering how much time I’m commuting, eating (editor’s note a lot), and most notably when not at the gym (hopefully not cycling) at a table playing MTG (Magic the Gathering).

So yeah there’s a common theme on my mind is: Wow I have weak ass hip flexors and over-tightened hamstrings! If you didn’t share in that same thought, translation, I sit a lot; and that’s affecting my ability to sprint and jump in cartoonish fashion. And, wanted to put a few words to paper to bring this to other readers attention if you share in the same lifestyle choice. To remedy that I’m hipster enough to go to yoga 3 times a week; take up every opportunity to catch up with people for coffee (often its a walking meeting); and being mindful how much grinding am I doing for MTG. 2 positives and being aware of a negative that I don’t intend on giving up to the goal, or balance if you will. Just a thought to entertain before the WOD
