Alright, I am officially the Beefcake Blogger. I think there is something to this blogging thing. When Von suggest it, I thought that it sounded like a pain in the ass (because I am incredibly lazy). However, the last two days of training, I have felt more accomplished than ever before. I am a drama queen, so I only have extreme moods. Either my training sucks, is a waste of time, and I’m not going to amount to anything….which was yesterday when I was timing my 4X400’s with a 3:30 break. OR I am Fat Carl Fucking Lewis, the rising star, the next ultra competitor….which was today, as I was performing my 6X200’s with a 2minute break.
Having recently become a World Class Blogger, I spent a lot of time reflecting on my workouts, as well as how I perceive them. What I concluded was, that I don’t perceive worth a shit. I concluded that I am neither of the extremes. I concluded that I am a guy who is trying to be a little better everyday, and that is the long-short of it. Each day, little better. I needed the time spent pondering on this blog to achieve a more accurate perception of what I am doing. I will never forget finishing my first “real” 5K (my first ever was about 6 months out of rehab…44minutes) and being frustrated at myself for not finishing in under 30 minutes (32:30). I was pissed, as usual. Von asked me, “how do you think you did compared to the other 250lb guys?”. I responded, “I didn’t see any other 250lb guys”. His retort, “Exactly…they are still on the couch, where it is comfortable.”
Perspective is one helluva thing. This first blog post helped me to achieve it, but not before I pulled muscles trying to pat myself on the back, shortly after blacking eyes by beating myself up. I need this blog, I need Coaches, and I need teammates….cause at the end of the day my brain ain’t worth a shit.
Peace, Love, and all things Beef related
Wilson, I’ve never known you to be “bad” at anything! You take to blogging like a duck to water – very funny, enlightening and actually inspiring. It makes me want to be more than a slug waiting for the garlic and butter bath!
Thanks Robin. You know you are MUCH more than that. You have been taking care of a lot of boys and girls for a lot of years now. Ive been loving you since I was 12!
I need your blog more than your blog needs me.
I’ll keep coming back.
Ha! Too funny Fish. You know I appreciate the support!
Well done, but that doesn’t surprise me one bit. I am going to probably sound selfish and say that I am happy that this is one more place I can enjoy getting your down-to-earth perspective on things…not that I always agree with you mind you, but you always make me get outside of “self” and my own views. Thank you for being such a cool fella!!
Holly you KNOW that you are one of my favorite people. I wish that you would agree with me all the time though, it would be easier. Then, you could explain to everyone why they should.
Bravo Wilson!! This is awesome…I struggle with feeling the extremes as well when the reality of the situation is always somewhere in the middle. This is a great reminder of keeping things in perspective and you relay that message in such an honest funny voice 🙂
Thanks Brooke! I appreciate your kind words.
