Lifting

by on Jan.30, 2012, under Uncategorized

I have done various types of workouts for Ultimate.. stupidly, I only started getting really serious in the last few years about getting into truly good shape for playing.. (if only I had done this at age 20 instead of 30!) but this year.. in addition to a planned set of track workouts/speed workouts once the season gets closer I have started an actual “lifting” program. Now, while I have lifted in the past for Ultimate.. it isn’t the same as having a focused plan that someone put together with exact exercises/reps/schedule/etc.. So I am pretty curious to see if this plan gives me any measurable gains. The hardest part, though, is knowing that any major measurable gains likely won’t be felt/noticed until 8-12 weeks through as I work through getting my body used to the work load/build muscle/turn the muscle into explosiveness. I hate waiting.
(For anyone curious, the workouts are coming from theultimatethleteproject.com)

Way too much time

by on Jan.28, 2012, under Uncategorized

between posts that is! I also spent way too much time trying to figure out what I wanted as a home page for robluhrs.com.. I wanted something simple and cool that I could use to redirect to the various things I actually updated once in a while.. thinks like FaceBook, Twitter, SmugMug and the Pickup page that I host. Then I realized that this silly WordPress thing was designed to handle all of that for me.. I didn’t need to do any late-night coding.. or anything special, I just needed to set this page up correctly!
Of course.. with this decision, it means I need to post a fair bit more often here.. so I’ll endeavor to do that as much as possible. No promises as to content, though I expect it will include poor CapiTaliZatioN as I tend to randomly capitalize words when I am not writing for a formal work document. Spell check will handle it’s duties, but grammar is also guaranteed to be poor. The one thing I CAN promise is that the words will all be mine, the thoughts will be ones that rattle in my head until I spread them here and at the end of the day… reading the posts will sound a heck of a lot like listening to me. (i.e. long winded, kinda rambling, but still somewhat enlightening/enjoyable or at least interesting (I hope).
With that said.. here goes nothing!
