Notes:

Burpees:
Maximus: In the back yard, in the rain, "? about 2 hours of 'fun'?"

Ride:
MFT: 70 miles, 9400' elevation gain, 4hrs 40min.

Fight:
Damon: gold medal, purple belt, adult, featherweight (154 lbs) category. The category started with 12 competitors. Damon sent a text to Lisa afterward that read, "4 tough matches. Hard work pays off." Johnny's text was a bit more descriptive, "? Damon destroyed everybody."

Jamie: silver medal, purple belt, adult, super featherweight (141 lbs) category.
His text to Lisa read,
"I took second in a really close match. He wouldn't tap to a tight foot lock at the end."
Lisa replied, "As Mike Diaz says, 'break that shit.'"
Jamie: "I did. It kept popping and he wouldn't tap."

Salvation Membership Site:
I posted a piece on the Salvation site today discussing fitness vs. technique and how, due to the volume required, technical practice will likely produce a significant aerobic base (in some sports). The last paragraph:

This is the point that the "high intensity all of the time" folks miss entirely: expressing fitness is technical and decisive, and expression must be practiced. Technique training is based on repetition and, though I know it's redundant, whether expressed as 10,000 reps or 10,000 hours, there is no shortcut.


DNS is just fine but once you start, DNF (due to a lack of will) isn't acceptable. Maximus persisted.
