People explaining me by my academic training is so annoying.
They prefer to categorise and normalise what they don’t know, than to embrace a new sort/way of being/doing/achieving.
Starting now I’m going to settle with self taught and see if they get even more confused.

My upper body is weak and unbalancing the rest of it. I feel like I have a flat tire or a ruptured sail by which I cannot get away from the shore long enough to taste the open sea.
My mind is strong, my legs and hips are getting better everyday, my core aches from the persistent muscle demand but my upper weakness remains.
I have to focus on shoulder, chest and arms for a they can come to the party with the rest of us.

Work out with my personal trainer.
Enhancing technique with a constant eye of adjustment made care. Surveying is surveillance of posture and physical correctness.
Stronger than ever and infinitely aware of my own physical limits.
August 2, 2017
Legs. Stronger than ever and happy to submit to pain.
Acknowledging the weakest points of the weakest points is a new focus of macro importance. Being able to cope with the constant evolution and all the recent achievements means I have to search deeper into the reasons why I can or cannot be better, need to or not do at all.
This nano mitochondrial approach brings the perfect context for self knowledge and body and mind awareness in order to make the experience greater and more successful. More importantly, it makes the experience uniquely adequate and personal.
The more I know the more I want to be more. About myself.
I hope recovery is on par with performance.

On a bike.
Sweat, an extreme waterfall.
Getting ready for the road.
July 18, 2017
Friends, an open park, sun and freshly cut grass, moisture, cleanse sense of a simple spring morning and the availability of the mind to comply with the workout.
Functional enlightenment of the body.
Mechanical understanding of joints, front the core to the large leg muscular groups.
Strength tensioning is a forced unbalanced discovery of equilibrium and awareness from the mind to the extremities of the body. Even sight takes the role of the beholder.
June 7, 2017
When I am away from myself I regret the moments I am not available to me as I should.
I take care of everyone and everything around me, even after the adjustment I made to my life, when I realised that the best way to help them all is to help me first.
And so I did, and still do, even when some breaks in my routine and workout only strengthen the need to continue and evolve my body.
June 3, 2017
Hybrid, technically adjusted and predictably adjustable.
Feeling the weight of knowledge and experience in its completion and of any demand. In every solicitation my body responses are becoming a hymn of joy and readiness, becoming a fruitful part of physical enlightenment.
Nutritional awareness, physical involvement and commitment and I am now a real and true machine. Accomplished and accomplishing whatever I set my foot us directed at.
I feel the direct path to my inner self, in just another dimension of me. The physical me.

Workout, training, routine.
Similar, yet ambiguous in between the meaning.
Today, I trained in my exercise routine, working toward the goals I set up to do.
So, if training is my practice, routine is the schedule and workout the act of, today…
… i am nothing more than being myself.
March 28, 2017
Specificity, a verbosity of will.
Enhancement, the subject of focus.
Results, the adjective of self esteem.
Objectively gaining strength and stamina, enduring and becoming more each time a day passes.
Nutrition and training are way to mindfulness and to know how. Simply, endure.
March 20, 2017
Simple training day.
Arrogantly simple and accessible. Pushing hard is normal and attainable by my current physical condition. No pain, always aware of the technical demands and in complete control.
Run, upper body strength and good results.
March 13, 2017
Techniques and evolutions.
The best stride, step, pose, stand, effort.
How to put the most powerful intention downward into forward motion, the best equilibrium presence into the minimal aghast of frugality, better and aware of small increments of even better practices.
Simple and enjoyable, adequate and accessible thoughts, experiences of deeper commitment with a new way to see body mechanics at an abstract quantum level of objectivity.

Personal trainer therapy and companion day. I was the therapist…
Strengthening both, core, upper, lower body and building. Lots of weights, dumbbells, bad faces and sweat. Testosterone to the max!… while beautiful @catarinaplr observed peacefully and took front place in the crowd to see the feud of manhood assemble and disassemble the equipment needed.
Oh what a joy, the numbers pilling up and the pain of tomorrow ever so present.
Great day of gym workout. Thank you #FonsecaPT
February 16, 2017
Interval running, beginning to control the way my body reacts to all solicitations of endurance and strength.
There’s a lot of conditioning to be done but there’s also a lot of evolution visible and real. Recovery is faster, adaptation is easier but I keep prone to injury. Foot and knee tendon insertions are the worst.
Add… and abductor work and variable stretching all day long.
February 15, 2017
Upper body strength. Arms, chest, core.
A little bit of running, enjoying the need to get HR down by stage training.
High intensity and short distances. Low weights and longer repetitions. Very personalised workout in order to keep getting ready for the big challenges of summer and swimming in open sea.
February 13, 2017
Row, elliptic and bike.
Cardio keeps general fitness very m checking in order. It’s also a good recovery for all the new strength work I’ve been doing so I must keep up with it. Strangely the recovery becomes faster and faster. Than usual at least.
Good nutrition without any supplement but with a lot of conscientious choices.
February 10, 2017
Simple and much needed. The body response is invigorating and compulsory to the prerequisite I have in mind. A fortress.
Gathering the time to strengthen the deficit of years of intolerable practices I feel the alignment of the main items unfold in the dissection of pain and discomfort into regret.
February 1, 2017
Upper body strength.
Lean, fit, slim and sexy. The images reflected in the mirror are now made of minor adjustments rather than those giant aberrations of another time and way of being.
Without transcendence but with will and care, self care, I made myself in such a short period of time, a better man, a stronger, higher human, physically and mentally.
For the rest of my life.
January 12, 2017
Prepared for the first 10k @ Porto!
Body, mind and soul.
Experience with some friends and the light that keeps me right side up.
The will is power to will more.
December 18, 2016
Technical evolution is more important than instant achievement.
Body awareness achievable by motion, cadence, rhythm and peace. Step by step, overcoming the shadows of a lot not made, makes me ready and near the first act.
Oh what a journey, what a joy is to be aware of so much when you compare just three months earlier in my life.
December 15, 2016
Pushing enough to emulate real activity.
Simulation, alternative training, optional results. Creatively maintaining the goals while keeping physical stress under control.
Pushing hard from the highest muscle in my body.
November 29, 2016
Swim, the part of the equation that is more difficult to surpass.
Still, I try, as hard as I can, as hard as I know, as strong as the commitment I have with myself.
Improving technique is a mixed way of doing (while rationalizing) and redoing. I’m having extraordinary meetings with my body, acquaintances of every depth with my mind, recognizing my most physical human side of life and becoming a stronger animal, a better, simpler man in the way.
Today my thoughts are not of goals, are not of enduring the result as the animosity of success.
Today my thoughts are simpler, because the goal has already became real and successful quite long ago…
Today I know my life is different, better, and all because I knew I could make a change true.
Today is just another day in which I celebrate all my life. Now better.
November 19, 2016
I have experienced a few things in my life by seeing it, living it, feeling or being a part of it. Some are more intense, others are more understandable and some are just a result of something or someone interacting.
Today I have felt the strongest muscle in my body, in full development and deploying incommensurable amounts of energy and strength, not only towards me but also in the gravitic near field, spurring and having other types of expansions in the calmness and awareness of a focused man.
My mind is my biggest strength and today I saw the commitment of a lifetime unfolding before my eyes. Truth is reality.
November 16, 2016
Week start up workout.
Shredded legs and core workout.
Dumbbell and body weight difficult workout.
Squats of every kind and featuring a lot of pain workout.
Just another workout.
November 14, 2016
A normal pace, a feasible effort and a initial circuit around the next playgrounds for the physical activities needed to put mind and body in order. A quick 7k, for recovery purposes, with much more to give than the pace or time, with strength and motivational features of achievers and doers.
After the feeling of shredded legs of the last days I have to say (again!) that my body keeps surprising me. I know it has something to do with the persuasive organ I have up between my shoulders but even so it keep surpassing itself to discovery. There’s no discomfort, no sense of underwhelming, just a coherent and sensible manner to make all it can do, visible.
A quick tour of the city with the company of the new machines…
November 13, 2016
Run. Ride. Row.
Energising the rational decisions of a day made to be a turning point with the power of exercise. Using the strength of a much more capable man.
A tiring day, a full day, a memorable day. Mental and physically exhausting, made from and of decisions, abstracts, summaries and intentions, strategies and answers.
The use of proper and constant training transcends the gains of typical activity in humans by captivating through me everything in others.
November 4, 2016
New week. Bad start. Great finish.
New week, closing on the sedentary expectations of a different past. Unbalanced by being the enabler of the committed self and the assurance a better, new, me. New hopes on amplitude, strength, versatility, flexibility, focus, enhancement… This unforgiving scenario is nothing but the dwell of reality and fiction being sarcastically traverse.
The bad start was true the night before. A different type of insomnia, calm, resistive and unforgiving. A clear night of no sleep. A presage of exception in this new reality, filled with activity and bonheur, where this state is no longer welcomed. Yet, it was. A different night. A calm night. A tiring night.
Morning came and the hangover, the tiredness, the lack of enthusiasm was overwhelmed by the commitment of a better life. Enough said.
Gym it was. Rough start gave way to a crescendo of will, power, discovery, limits. The end was not the expected beginning.
I have overcome defeat and contradiction with pure will power and commitment with truth. After all, everything I live by.
October 24, 2016
Training with the insurance of technical skills, nutrition and fitness pals.
Very strong and focused routine.
I have endured the lack of energy, the simultaneous exhaustion of the mind and body, the anger of the directed instructions while searching for any innuendo left unturned only to restart my boost on goals with rage! Sorry, but it kept me going as a wild animal…
Full body dedication, core maintenance, strength and energy almost at the desired level.
On the right track.
October 18, 2016
Full workout. Trainer and strategy aligned with the current state of physical endurance and available strength.
Warming up is now a much shorter pleasure than the desire to keep going it became. Running is in fact a meditative state of mind.
Strengthening the core. Enhancing the right way to become stronger, faster and last longer. Technically correct. Approved and improved by the critical eyes of the others around.
A good investment, not only in the experienced knowledge of the coaching but also in the motivational improvement it can be for the mind.
Calmly advance into tomorrow. Always.
