The video shoot went well last week. We were able to complete everything planned and there weren’t any major problems. We did learn a lot and the experience was great. For example, there needs to be more planning in pre-production. We didn’t have a written schedule per-se; it would have been nice to have it […]

It was strange without them at the center for so long (about three weeks). The South America Summer Camp they organized was successful, good news […]

This last week was hard one, but good. I pushed myself physically by including more resistance with heavier weapons and training tools. I felt it in my back and shoulders, they were pretty tight these last few days. Additionally, though I have a shorter lunch break, I am back running the mountain again; it feels great. […]

Stretching consistently is going well. Pamela commented on my blog last week wanting to know some stretches. I’m not sure where she’s at in stretching but this should get us going.

This week is a bunch of different thoughts I’d like to get out there. First of all, it’s finally raining! Over the last week we’ve gotten a few inches, which is well below normal, but it’s better than nothing. I suppose it’s no different than blocking an attack even if it’s a lousy one. Something […]
