Jumping In
This is a bit of a sequel I think to the last post I wrote about uncertainty.  This one is about operationalizing that idea in training, and perhaps life in general.  It takes as a proviso that life is inherently uncertain and uses that as a jumping off poi...

Pain and Gain
“The more pain I train myself to stand, the more I learn.   You are afraid of the pain now, Unk, but you
