Day 1. 2. 1.

No more “days” likes these. The branded 120.

I don’t need anymore remarks, and specifically about a prominently found normality made of my life of achievements. All those findings are made possible by determination and pure choice: my determination and my choices.

I don’t feel obliged by no one but me, to live my life to the full extent of it, therefore, I am obliged by design to become a remarkable man in the coherence of my own existence.

I am made of me and of my own ambitions.

I design my choices, my solutions and every new problem I find with and within myself. I have creative and operational control. I am the strategist and the enforcer. The supervisor of my beliefs, reliefs and of everything that lies in this calling of theological proportions for as long as I want, and to aid who I want.

Welcome, Sérgio and… swim, bike, run.

Welcome, Sérgio and… swim, bike, run.

October 23, 2017

Row to start RPM and bike to follow last day HIIT. Upper body strenghtning to keep up with overall sculpt and shaping.

September 19, 2017

Day 119

Bike. Improve HIIT to the state of domination.

Strengthen the mental resistance while purging through sweat all the other things.

Mental health and care.

Day 119

Bike. Improve HIIT to the state of domination.

Strengthen the mental resistance while purging through sweat all the other things.

Mental health and care.

September 18, 2017

Day 118

After the break, reasonably active (while not sporty, kept the momentum) the comeback was just great.

Mind and body working together to bring a really nice session. Short, intensive and sweaty.

Day 118

After the break, reasonably active (while not sporty, kept the momentum) the comeback was just great.

Mind and body working together to bring a really nice session. Short, intensive and sweaty.

September 4, 2017

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.

August 8, 2017

Running, longer and stronger.

That’s it.

August 7, 2017

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

Another monday, another run, another goal achieved.

I need more precision in order to follow up correctly this kind of detail of the evolution.

Measured in seconds now!

Smalls incremental steps makes a quantum leap in a few days.

July 31, 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.

July 20, 2017

HIIT.
On a bike.
Alone.
Pushing.
Sweat, an extreme waterfall.
Pure performance.
Setting standards.

Getting ready for the road.

July 18, 2017

Intrinsic performance.

Another day of discovery. After so many days away from the gym, training and multiple workouts is good to see how strong and how high my standard has become. A former goal is now a warmup, a basic routine of strength and development.

This eclipse of mind/bodyset brought the notion of energy through exercise and not of exhaustion or tiredness.

Just a little more of motivation and I will accomplish everything.

July 17, 2017

New daily challenge : timed 5k.

Getting stronger and faster.

Persuasive training is a matter of time and not of achievement but with achievements comes better times.

In search of Balance.

June 26, 2017

June 17, 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

There are days when the best enhancement is simply the way the routine is kept as a goal.

When achieving everything all the time the simple things that are really the true advance of the exercise are lost.

Keep in mind that in order to make it bigger it has to start smaller…

June 6, 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

Exercise has now a numbing effect. Pain, sadness, stress, depression, and anxiety are numbed, processed and excreted.

The renewal of the body and mind is a primal care of the uttermost importance and should not depend of urgency but instead of constant awareness about the need of maintenance.

I feel this in me, I feel this is the way to affect the intrinsic need to care for some others around me. I’m not a single organism living isolated from collateral arguments, as I’m not the pair or companion of exclusive rights for someone, ever. Except for me, in me, for others, tethering my strengths with care.

I am an indistinguishable man, commonly made of simplicity and humble elegance in insightful life of learning and deliverance.

I am perseverance, even when it seems impossible to maintain.

May 9, 2017

Motivation comes in the form, of the most peculiar terms and conditions.

If i am forced to do something, I usually react accordingly to my condition of autonomous and responsible individual and in the precise terms I can foresee to be valuable and interesting to me. Like so I gather a stronger cause and effect connection with the result.

Life itself forced me to become better. My actions and choices are now insourced to make a better version, the last version, of myself. I feel it, I see it and I am making the initial concept of improvement even better.

There’s no choice but to be able to continue. Not only for me but specially for the ones around.

May 2, 2017

7.5k early in the day.

Simply preparing, mentally, the expected rough days ahead. A time where life and family are the priority and everything else needs to be taken care summarily.

Gathering focus and calm in the middle of a normal scene of life, just to say to myself how abject I am to be able to cope with nothingness.

Training to die a healthy man.

May 1, 2017

Seasoning, training, focused on yet another goal.
A beautiful, calm, dawn.

Two fellow runners, greeting one cyclist and the pouring water over the green gardens, then, animal surrealism takes over…

One white horse eating on the verge of a rocky stone wall, while a darker, brown one stares at my breathe.
A row of seagulls, complimenting my run with contained screams of maritime freshness.
A stork, quiet and still, eating on a newly scented and revolved field.
A cloud of swallows, sprinkling the sky with motion and elegance.
A stray cat eating from a tray.

At home, the last animal, at the mirror, took the day for the energy and context it provided.

April 25, 2017

A really nice relaxed workout, swimming, with friends and enduring my determination and goals to succeed.

Simple and enlightening.

April 19, 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.

April 17, 2017

Personal training.

Technical weaponisation of my goals.

Advanced and curated exposition of any non deliberated fault, weakness and difficulty.

Registered in video!!!

April 5, 2017

Running. So strong, yet gently.

Aware and persistent, consistent and technically advanced. Robust in every step, following the pace and enhancing just enough to surpass both distance and cadence.

High intensity and quality workout.

Preparing for the greater outdoors.

April 4, 2017

The first and longest, the highest erected barrier, i need to put down, to achieve the final goal. The ultimate challenge, as the biggest and highest possible enhancement I need to comply and put in perspective immediately.

Swim, above water phobia, this uncomfortable feeling of medium and habitat.

Swim, from the inner parts of my deepest and unrest soul I am asking for my own conclusion.

Swim, like a technical and capable aware human being.

Swim, with comfort and ease of a very strong me.

Swim, only to bike and run.

March 30, 2017

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

Eloquence of effort.

Deeper, stronger and within. The need to see inside the result and search for the answer that’s still not visible, only feasible.

The fact is I love to pick my brain as I am ever more interested to do it to my body.

March 21, 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

Somehow I just knew I could do it.

And I did.

I changed the biggest part of my body and found the best result achievable by will alone. I made my mind, about the way I lived, was living, wanted to live and should be living. The result was not surprisingly another goal surpassed (and deserved). From the moment I felt the momentum to the enact fact of sweat and achievement I know by taste the fiber I am made of.

Pushing harder is not the only part of the process. Pushing forward makes the difference and now feels more and more comfortable each time.

The new me is not new, only an evolved conscience of the will I have to be better.

March 16, 2017

Every day I have new and increasingly better look at my physical state. I feel the evolution and cadence of strength growing from all the parts I need to develop. I know I am able of more and better, longer, deeper, technically evolved and aware.

Just another day.

😉

March 14, 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

Better. Just better.

From the occasional illness, recover absentism and of the now more then ever fading lack of discipline.

How could I get so far in my life without foreseeing the fact that sport, train, health is an insurance of more. Life, experience, focus, dedication, achievement… The list is endless and the only downside I can think of is…. Hum… Uhhh…. Yep! There’s none.

Today I ran, don’t know exactly how much but just enough to consider it a run. Half way to a place where you could find a peace of mind, and a lot of stairs. Great rpm event and there I went to the next stage.

Short run and some simple calisthenics in a open park. Tips and technical improvements to the posture and the much needed core evolution. From the core comes the technique, in an oblique motion to each limb. Nice physical mnemonic of strength and general aptitude to develop conscientiously.

Another run, very inclined and decisive! No shortcuts, no sense of easiness. No pain. Just pure pleasure and enjoyment.

What a great way to start a sunny day, awaking in the midst and still in the process of excreting a virus

In the end I looked at the watch and it was still a glorious 8.50am.

March 8, 2017

Absent from the workout plan, in the last few days, present in the nutrition habits now deeply inside my routine and daily dynamics I can only affirm the unquestionable fact of my utter joy and indelible future commitment : I will die a healthy man.

March 7, 2017

Not a lot, just the necessary things to make the body full of strength and energized for the rest of the day.

Grateful for the aggressive resistance of my mind to procrastination, specially the one relating the priority of the professional life to the lack of balance it provides. No more excuses, but the acceptance of a new way and will.

Visible results.

March 1, 2017

Strength routine.

Legs and core.

Easier, heavier, better, satisfying, clearer.

February 24, 2017

Interval running with high expectations… missed by such a small margin.

Stronger than ever and committed as… I know I will overcome in the next workout.

The best of today’s achievement was the way I knew I wanted to do the training section from last week! Next week I have the will and the experience to surpass this exercise with distinction.

February 21, 2017

Great way to check if the project is coming to the desired goal… Pushing harder and harder to see the new limits!
Done, and guess what?…

Technically evolved, aware, conscious and detailed. Committed to the bare minimum of excellence. Nothing more, nothing less.

Physically capable. Not yet a remarkable human or even a grand example of strength and achievement but I am now above normal. I am able to sustain such an affirmative cause by relying on the focus in am thrusting day by day, by being the traction of others while conducting my own path, by my own merit and formation I have now and is enough for me to spare. I am starting to influence so much more than myself.

Finally I can only assume I am what I want, by will and will alone, naturally becoming a better human by choice and assuming the new modus operandi as my healthy way of living life learning how to die.

February 20, 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.

February 19, 2017

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

Legs.

My biggest threat, endangering everything the rest of my body assumed possible, is no more. Repeatedly strengthened and assumed as a matter of tune and dedication. At the gym, at work, at home, at the street…

Perseverance of weight, repetition and enduring will.

February 9, 2017

New routine, harder. Simpler.

Fast start, fast finish, high average and a lot of things to control. Firstly, the heart trying to get out from the chest… Secondly, the pace and machine setup to keep the workout under the presets I need to grow muscle, endurance and stamina.

Nice.

February 7, 2017

Strength training.

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.

No more.

February 1, 2017

Active as never before. Wanting to be more. Aching from all the soreness and this sureness of state.

I know resemble a newly formed foam, moulded from the sharp sides of choices and deliverance. A concrete chisel of determination, memorized and vindictive of dark nostalgia.

Growing. Physically and emotionally. A mental usability that comes with hard yet specific training.

January 31, 2017

Stretch and stretch. After that, stretch more. More, more and even more until I stretch, more.

My body aches from everything I have not yet done and from everything I have never done yet. I ache from the lack of self care I made myself suffer all this years living to others. Without regret I am evolving into a stronger human, a focused and determined man.

I stretch to prepare and recover from this last months of training, experiences and overwhelming overcoming goals and overcorrective life.

Now, until forever.

January 30, 2017

The first big challenge was overcome.

21k

Injured and yet feeling more than alive by owning my future life.

I will dye my time with the brightest colors, mine and others, in a catharsis of will and power.

Together. Pat Cat Lu Nu S

January 22, 2017

10k as a b-day gift.

January 18, 2017

5k as the mark.

Letting everything I know to be of prejudice behind and embracing the optimistic reasoning of another era.

Focus is an achievable circumstance of will and practice.

January 14, 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.

Without doubts.
With contexts.
With me.
For the rest of my life.

January 12, 2017

Back from the deserved break. Year end and new year vacations, experiences and resolutions.

A small but inconspicuous rest of the body only to prepare the mind for the next battles. Half marathon, cycling and swimming from the baseline of this adjusted reality, where activity is the new order.

5k are now a simple effort. 10k the base workout and 21k the norm where I will add the next two of the trip part goal.

January 9, 2017

Longest run.

Great new discoveries and fun are the hardest parts of the game.

It hurts.

December 29, 2016

Street workout, cold, heavy, after the festivities and the work year end.

Still so much weight, carried inside, outside, and now much less than usual.

The choice between stopping and keep on going is only dependent of the will, the goal and the way you want to live your life.

December 26, 2016

Bad day. Workout and headache don’t mix. It gets worst in water.

December 21, 2016

Recover from the first official 10k.

Enhancing the load after a very odd result. Great peace, great fun, great experience, great.

I am now coping with the prospective goals of the next 30 days : half marathon.

This will complete the first third of the swim, bike, run tryptic. This will be the standard stance, the body mind set position repositioned.

6k today and it was a great pleasure.

December 20, 2016

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

Perfecting.

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

Running, carefully caressing the limit of the previous injury.

Aiming at distance, perfecting the pace and the stride. Aware of the limits, imposed by the heart rate, zone training and overall feeling of easy and achievable goal.

The result was not surprisingly another goal surpassed.

My mind is the biggest muscle of this body.

December 13, 2016

Strong comeback.

Shredding every fiber left to shred.
Legs are thicker, higher, chiseled.

The largest muscle group is growing continuously and making the core stronger, more able, compelling the mind to follow.

I am now the owner of my body, held hostage by will and will alone. The will to be better.

December 12, 2016

There are a few things that I have to do. Control myself and the urges of instinct is one of the most important to tackle.

The first provision of experience is always discovery and while providing novelty, the debacle of my mind over my mind begins to enunciate the need to impose order, hierarchy and my methodic approach.

I swam again, more precise, focused, aware. I have now more mental grip while naturally flowing through water but I still have to think about it rather than be in it.

There’s inherent a frustration of age and lack of previous interest in swimming but I must assure myself of the path and not of the end result.

There will be enjoyment and fruitful hoarding of the enhanced self throughout the rest of my life.

December 11, 2016

5k is now a routine.

Relaxed, controlled pace. Focused on technique and perfection. A great and satisfying achievement of the mind over the body.

The realization of the current fitness.

After a period of injured decay I came back, softly, and swiftly became aware of the status and state of my entire body. While hurt it answered positively to all my demands and I made a decided yet achievable few.

Another successful experience makes me a knowledge avid man (even more) about my limits of strength and endurance to come.

December 9, 2016

The baseline must be clear about the essentials. Everybody must have them and I have found mine and I will carry it onwards.

This find makes me see that the biggest regret I have about normality is of not belonging to the poor standards people have about themselves. Them as a whole and as individuals. It’s so easy to set a base so much higher than people have nowadays that I wonder why people keep using the lower fascia… 

It’s hard, compromising, focused dependant?… No, it’s just a simple standard. If well put it will be well used. If used accordingly will elevate not only yourself but also everyone around you. I know i have.

I left

behind poor habits and unhealthy and self destroying actions towards myself. I have cleaned my life through my mind, my body, my relations, my belongings and i am now a much more simple human.

I have my baseline in higher grounds for a long time, but now i am able to see above and beyond them.

December 7, 2016

Hurt. Sick. Back. I am the fuck… back.

December 6, 2016

I know I have to put everything I am experiencing in front of me, not only to maintain focus on the end result but also to evaluate my terminal intolerance to mediocrity.

Through that cycle, the ratio of success, I will impose at the world what makes me the wonderer of dreams and purveyor of true reality.

Through me, I will take everything in my eyes and make them swiftly yours for you to joy and gaze at the discovery of my own mortality.

Dedication, respiration, concentration, meditation. The entanglement of the predictable tools is mandatory when everything is a part of the ensemble and not a dissociative form of compartmentalized reality. Swim, because I can’t, bike because I’m not strong as i used to be, and run because I have no problem with normality.

December 2, 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

After a very long pause, recovery is beginning.

An injury is never good and it hurts more mentally than physically. It’s a real struggle, keeping will above everything else, even (managing) nutrition, while pain goes by.

It feels very, very good to be appreciated by the strangers that are reasonably aware of your path, when they seem to care and offer to help. In all simplicity and discretion I have to believe the truth of the offer since the involvement could only came from self initiative and pure kindness. I guess the world of strangers in which I live in can surprise me with positive statements sometimes…

Slow start, strong start, a start.

November 28, 2016

Run.

Objectively paced, defining the purpose.

Quick, swift, made from intervals and a distance.

The search of the comfort zone. The awakening of the physical threshold.

Pumping, determined, unstoppable.

Hurt…

November 22, 2016

Acclimatization. Strength routines.

The start of another Week, strong…

New days of discovery and discipline. Stronger.

The mental ability to maintain focus on the goal through the path. Strongest predicament of rage and determination made possible by all visible results and invisible inner effects.

Strengthening in every direction.

November 21, 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

A simple mark. 50

A day to remember, where strength, companion, training, routine, evolution and care were the motive for success.

A meditative day, filled with decisions and strong opinionated interactions of construction and concrete human building.

From nutrition, to recovery, rest, focus, stamina, performance, endurance, pure will and power, everything is improving. Exponential and potential are becoming intrinsic.

The first 50 are still not enough.

November 17, 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

Running is now officially the new order for the measure of my ambitions.

An enjoyable pleasure where each step is nothing more than the time taken from the distance of the mind to reality. This meditative state, this abstraction, will soon become a alpha beta wave transition in which I will surely become more aware of me. In the effort, continuously discovery more and more of the yet to become actual present.

Until then I will endure in my own will.

November 15, 2016

Strength workout.
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

the Machine

November 13, 2016

The street.

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

The step.

The steeper step. The next and bigger step. Irrefutably the step where I can’t turn my back on my life. What’s left of it is made (real) by the concrete moments made by the truth I am. The recent ones are made of successive discoveries, evolutions, enhancements and other subtypes of the desired me.

This is about me, my goals and achievements. I want to run, swim, ride, race, travel while being aware, kind, friendly, arrogantly insightful and intelligent, resourceful, present, notable, odd…This is also about the ones around and their shared composite intimate construction. I want them to want me. Simple.

I am what I am for what exists around me is only the truth.

November 8, 2016

The shoes.

Doing some technical improvements on the technical part of the technical material… The best running shoes make the best mental fuel to use on one of the best training days ever.

Nutrition seems to be getting right. Effort is complacent with the cadence of my physical evolution and the mind is becoming more aware of this precious time of meditation while training.

A growing success is become the best reality in all my life, yet.

November 7, 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.

Core.

Strengthening the most important part of this machine. Balance, flexibility, equilibrium of the mind, body, poses and all the other focus of an evolved physical state.

Again, the biggest individual power is a more noticeable influence than most can believe: motivation through perspective and perseverance of the mind on the defined path.

Reedy for another stage advance.

November 3, 2016

The new plateau. Coherence.

This achieved state arrived at the cost of nothing more than sustainable evolution.

Without a doubt, food, rest and focus are the receipt for success.

Swim.

New style, increased difficulty. A growing success, acclimatized to this awkward medium, making easy to become a predicate in real life use.

I want to contaminate everybody around me with the exhilarating moment of discovery I am having.

Thank you my dearest and eternal light @catarinaplr

Alone, meditative and achieved.
Endurance, strength, balance.
Nutrition, macros, rest.

I still need to improve my resistance at the core of my body I only now I see the importance of it. The front and back core work as a pivot of flexibility and strength that I start to wake, need and use.

This seemed to be the day of break even. The day i see the next stage of evolution. I am not sure yet but as I see me as bigger, stronger and faster I think I will be able to surpass my most fantasizing goals.

Small steps towards the large and ample movements of life.

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

Stay within the routine. Run, ride, row.

The last week has been a strong indicator of growth and endurance, seeing the body and the mind adapting each other to the new uses.

Piling distance as never before I see some injuries appear. With the help of new materials they should be overcome easily.

Ice is a new friend. Distance is new focus. Personal achievement is the new order.

Thank you, again @catarinaplr

Swimming and gaining confidence at each stroke. Improving by feeling the mistake getting corrected.

How energized I can become after such simple enhancements…

How a stigma a phobia can be, until it ain’t no more.

October 19, 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

First of the week. Reinforcing the commitment made earlier with the achievements.

Hard as if it couldn’t be any different.

Deeper in the routine. Strengthening enough to need more flexing.

October 17, 2016

Running again, made harder by all the activity of a busy week.

Cycling again, this time to stimulate endurance.

Rowing too, to simulate swim.

The tri part, dry part, gym part of muscle enhancement, muscle memory, muscle conditioning.

Repeat.

October 15, 2016

A lot.
What a nice, calm relaxed practice.

Enduring, strengthening and relaxing with a little but of endurance. Translating some run, followed by upper body/arm (core) and finishing with some bike time, into a tri part that will become my choice of future endeavors.

After the last moment of accompanied training (hard as only a trainer must be) this time alone felt very much as a result of my own will to succeed, supported by my context of faith and determination on my own goals.

October 12, 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.

October 11, 2016

The almost complete, first of the new routines, technically surveiled, deep focused, hard, day of practice.

A lot harder. The trinomial union of disciplines made real and together as is possible to maintain.

Run, swim, ride until I can find the end.

October 10, 2016

Redo. Undo. Do. Do over. Again. Better. Longer. New. Trying. Failing. What. Why. How. Align. Adjust. Pain. Faint. Fault. Fail.

Again. Again. Again. Again…

Will, will prevail.

October 7, 2016

Recovery before the first (big?) training.

A first step is always the last moment from rational thoughts and the first moment of action.

3, 2, 1…

Done.

October 6, 2016

I am the master of my own desire to achieve, and of what I have not yet been able to obtain by normality and succession of random events in life.

I am the joy of failing, learning, experimenting and evolving.

I am a swimmer.

October 5, 2016

Evaluation.

Physical test.

A trainer and a technical strategy.

Long term commitment and goals.

Update on nutrition and body self conscience.

The plan.

October 5, 2016

A short throw at the continuous strengthening of the body.

A simple run, made simple by practice.

Technical help is real and tomorrow will be a good advancement of the way to achieve all the goals i have foreseen.

From quality to quantity, of weakness, of joy, of me.
