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 –
