    Continuing to feel sudden jolts intensely.

    Tried squatting last night and was able to so will start back up paying attention to tendon tightness between times.

    I'm going to move my rehab journal to the other forum I visit. If anyone has any questions about my rehab experience send me a PM.

    Upon hearing of the passing of Charlie Francis I thought I'd mention what his work has meant to me.

    I'm a juggler and have trained diligently for many years. When I read Speed Trap, it was a revelation. Many concepts I had struggled with and phenomena I had experienced but didn't understand were suddenly made clear. His methods of training and coaching changed the way I trained myself and taught others.

    When I came across these forums I was amazed at the depth of understanding and breadth of experience Charlie brought to any topic. Many of his posts changed the way I thought about an issue. Charlie could show the way to a much deeper understanding with just a few words. In the midst of a particularly arcane discussion which had gotten mired in molecular biology, Charlie simply asked, "How does this affect your training choices?". The minutia faded away like smoke and I have been less concerned with trivia ever since.

    I will never read CFTS the same way now. It's hard to think that a man with so much to offer is lost to us. I never knew him, but from his writings it is clear that we of the sport world have lost one of the greatest minds of this or any other time.

    I haven't been here in a while. I see that I didn't log my hill sprints here. Those were part of my knee rehab journey and I see most of that was logged elsewhere. I still have work to do, grr. I think I'm going to stop logging at place #3, not sure if I want to log my w/o efforts at all these days. My journals are as much a chronicle of mental health struggles as training, but current training goals are knee ROM, leg strength and fat loss. I don't have any specific lifts or times I want to reach these days, just be healthy and move better.

    Skimming some of my entries from 2005 I want to yell at that guy and tell him to wake up. I remember 2005, both how unhappy I was and how oblivious I was. I was heading for a cliff, literally, and I didn't see it or think about it. I didn't understand. There were very important things about myself and my life that i had no idea about. I try to remind myself that it's always that time, that I always have to deal with reality, not try to escape into my thoughts. So many things could have been done at that time. So many things I have to do now. I could have saved myself so much anguish. I understand things better now and that's good but it also brings more suffering since I see my life more clearly.

    Journal's are a great way to see patterns. A training journal is a good way to keep yourself accountable. Public journals are a bit personal in my opinion. The entire point of a journal is to add everything you can think of that influences training. It's part of the problem with how people view training. It's about this lift or that rep... So many aspects of our daily living influence training.

    By the way, welcome.

    I try to think of mental health as BRAIN HEALTH.

    I have been looking into TRAINING HEALTH lately. How athletes think they are so healthy because they train hard and training is 'good'. Masters athletes are particularly interesting. I used to think training hard was the most important aspect of my performance. Thinking we know something is a bigger issue than admitting how little we actually know.
