Awesome workout- X2 Base and Back, abs, run, extra pull-ups (which were feeling AMAZING), rope climb, crane->handstand practice, burpees in the morning. 

On crane->handstand, I can now get to a handstand; I just can't straighten my arms yet.  But I can taste it.  Almost there, and it's SO EXHILARATING.  Praise God.

My goal is to have the crane->handstand done by the end of next week and post a video here (I was hoping by today, but I've spent enough time on it today) and then to focus on the kip-up.

Moving into this phase of training I have two other goals:

- Spend no less than 1 1/2 hours every day exercising
- Spend no more than 1 1/2 hours every day exercising

I've been convicted about prioritizing wisely with God's time, so I want to pack my hour-and-a-half with Beast-level training, but not go beyond that, lest I cut into other important priorities.  

So, my plan for the next 5 weeks:

On strength days (3x/week): X2 strength workout, ab workout, 15 minute run; any remaining time used for stretching and gymnastics

Recovery day (1x/week): recovery, flexibility, and optional gymnastics work

Yoga day (1x/week): X2 yoga, work on gymnastics for the remaining time (especially since, after yoga, I feel so limber)

Plyo day (1x/week): X2 Plyocide, long (30 minute) run

This is EXACTLY what is happening today.

"Segregation or separation is thus a basic principle of Biblical law with respect to religion and morality.  Every attempt to destroy this principle is an effort to reduce society to its lowest common denominator. Toleration is the excuse under which this leveling is undertaken, but the concept of toleration conceals a radical intolerance. In the name of toleration, the believer is asked to associate on a common level of total acceptance with the atheist, the pervert, the criminal, and the adherents of other religions as though no differences existed. The believer has a duty of lawful behavior toward all, an obligation to manifest grace and charity where it is due, but not to deny the validity of the differences which separate believer and unbeliever. In the name of toleration, the believer is asked to tolerate all things because the unbeliever will tolerate nothing; it means life on the unbeliever's terms. It means that Biblical order is denied existence, because all things must be leveled downward." - Rushdoony, "Institutes of Biblical Law"

It is good to go to the house of mourning.  Some times, we have the opportunity to visit that house in the form of history like this- history we cannot afford to forget.
Today I sat in a small room with a few of my siblings and listened to the story of a woman who had lived through the horrors of the Holocaust in the Nazi concentration camps.  Rose Williams was a 12 year old Polish girl when the World War II began in 1939. After the Nazis invaded Poland, the fingers of Naziism began to close around the throats of the Jews, beginning with subtleties and moving into unimaginable cruelties. This is where R...

More music from Refracted Glory.  This was from the historical section of the film... bonus points to anyone who can guess some of the ethnic influences.

So there's a Spartan event in Ohio where you can run all 3 races in one day- Sprint, Super, and Beast.  Get your trifecta.  One day.

I have a goal for next year. #aroo

I went for a run tonight (praise God, my knee, which was bugging me, is feeling much better!), which I need to do more, because while it didn't hurt in an injury way it definitely wasn't easy, and I'll need to ramp up my endurance conditioning before a 12+ mile Spartan Beast.

Followed that up with some nice relaxing recovery work... foam rolling, stretching, and general aaaaahhhhhhhness.

That is awesome +Gabriel Hudelson. My knee has been bothering me after a run I did but now is getting better so I need to start running again.

It just struck me.  Where did we get the idea that "contraceptive care" is something that should be covered by any "health" plan?  Can we just step back a bit from this Hobby Lobby decision (for which I praise God!) and ask- how did we get here?  Sandra Fluke appears before a committee testifying about the importance of requiring health care plans to cover "birth control."  What?!?  This is AMAZING.

1. Why are we trying to prevent (and, of course, in very many cases, preventing by murder) the blessing of children?

2. Even if "family planning" (doesn't that sound so sweet?) was a Biblical thing to do, how in the world did we get to the place where we thought that other people should pay for it?

Of course, backing up further, why aren't we still doing fee-for-service healthcare?  But one thing at a time.

And yes, these thoughts are coming from working on Wait Till It's Free.  #WTIF

Dunkin' Donuts' motto is "America runs on Dunkin'."  And then a picture of a real skinny stick figure running.

Correction: America sits in couches, grows fat, and watches televised sports on Dunkin'.

"...the conservative rests on "revelation," i.e., on "the preservation of . . . Christianity," and it is the failure of conservatism that it fails to see this, that it attempts to defend on humanistic premises a Christian product." - Rushdoony, "Institutes of Biblical Law"

"In terms of Biblical law, the state, home, school, and every other agency must be no less religious than the church." - Rushdoony, "Institutes of Biblical Law"

(Though I still don't see why he continues to affirm the "school" as a valid entity.)

It's possible that the idea of public schooling crept into his thinking somewhat.  Even the highest quality Christians aren't perfect as Christ.

It's also possible that he is trying to communicate with other Christians who have accepted the idea of public schooling and he's pointing out that even those public schools must conform to God's law.

It's also possible that he was referring to private school.  Part of a parent's duties is to raise his children though he may use that responsibility to seek out qualified instructors who can teach something that he himself knows little in.

America has come a long way in a few hundred years.  Not all of it has been in a good direction, and it's easy for me to get cynical about our nation because of that.  But we are blessed.  America, even lost, stumbling and wounded, has such a rich heritage of Christianity coursing through her veins and such an overabundance of blessings stemming from that heritage that she still is like no nation the world has ever seen.  America has colossal stories of heroism and sacrifice etched in blood and sweat into her stone and soil.  America has been a choice tool in the hands of Almighty God over the last 200 years, and He has used her to advance His Kingdom in a vast array of ways. 

America needs to repent, to reform, to return.

But America is still the land that I love.

Happy #IndependenceDay.
