October Coaches Corner 2019
I would have to look back, but I am pretty sure as I was writing the Coaches Corner from last year at this time, even though October did spell the early end to our beloved fall season, even then as I was sitting in the living room, typing away on this cancer box sitting in my lap, even then it was not white outside. So to the rest of the world experiencing climate change, and the warming of the oceans, I would say enjoy it. Maybe the new world Glacier is destined to be formed in Teton Valley and we will be the savior to this world heating crisis. If so, God bless and you are welcome. But Until that day comes, where the snow never melts and our bodies finally turn to blocks of ice, we will flourish in the faith that our destiny is to become the the coldest mother f&*^ers that have every walked the great state of Idaho. So we will continue to train, and as the world around us burns and rains down in ash, we will be the pillar of ice that cools the inferno roaring on around us.
So let us keep our heads, and continue to look into the future, and chisel out the lives that we wish to live, knowing that nothing is given, and everything can be taken away. Everything must be earned every damn day. Over and over and over. It never ends, stay on the path, for it continues….
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.
I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

For our programming this upcoming cycle, we wanted to bring it back so some basics. Incorporate more tempo work to increase time under tension in a controlled environment and not just by adding in more volume, also increase tendon and ligament health, and improve movement patterns. Rotating through our exercise selection, inserting what was missing from last months cycle, so we can stay balanced and keep increasing in strength for the long term. Aerobic day is back for the near future, and the conditioning pieces will continue to be mapped out in such a way as to push you, to challenge yourself, but not break you on a daily basis. We need to work hard, but we also need to work smart. We have a couple really fun Post Wod sessions, covering all your basic Post Wod needs. We look forward to seeing you all in class, and can’t wait to share in this Fitness journey with you.
