70% of the time, I train at 70% of my available maximal effort. Punching the clock, so to speak.  Chopping wood; carrying water.

20% of the time, I go for broke.  I blow the carbon out; unleash the inner beast.  Lay it on the line; shooting for PRs.

10% of the time, I simply move.  Walk, hike; an easy cruise on the bike.

20% of the time, I strive to be 1% better in the iron game.  I leverage the compounding effect; the aggregation of marginal gains.

On my 70% and 10% days, I’m hitting a “PR” in some other aspect of my life.  Mental or emotional. Relational, spiritual, or financial.

This is life balance.  

Heal thyself, harden thyself, change the world –
