So i'm going to start trying this mental hacking thing just for the hell of it.  I was reading an article about SEAL training and they make some interesting points.  Yeah, yeah, i know, i'm NOT a SEAL, but that doesn't mean there aren't things we can't learn and incorporate on some level.  For one, the idea of hell week.  Four hours of sleep at random intervals intersperced with days of INSANE amounts of physical activity.  Given that, why can't i condition myself to be able to train in the morning on less than optimal amounts of sleep?  I say thee yea, this can be done.  So let's see what happens.  Take a little page from Coach Dan Jon and just start by showing up, right?  Did that this morning and hey, got my bench back on track and even went an extra rep with heavier weight.  Good sign?  I think so.

I dunno you know, even tho i'm totally living in this weird fantasyland that's going to come crashing horribly down around me like it always does...well...i doubt it's going to be that horrible, i'm a bit older and better conditioned now, i suppose on some level i'll deal with it better, i mean hell, not even the waiting is killing me...but i digress..It's kinda nice to have some sort of placeholder for your goal that actually makes it real-ish, you know?  And when the sun burns out, none of it mattered and we center on a new star (or some other such poetic bullshit, i was never good at that sorta thing):
