Wow, can't believe this blog has been viewed over 300,00 times since it's inception in May 2004. Who would've thought that 6 years later I would still be recording every workout I do, no matter how grand or how small.

They all count. Thank you so much, loyal readers, for observing me observe my journey through the physical. I have always cared so much more about the actual experience of my training, than any one specific goal or accomplishment. Being in the flow, feeling myself strong, fit, brave,disciplined, consistent and able to create, with my mind, heart and body that which I desired to have physically is such a joy,

I will train and move the rest of my life, in whatever way possible. And, most probably I will help others to do the same and communicate, in one form or another what that is like for me.

Thank you all for stopping by :)). It is greatly appreaciated.

My first post.

Not all that impressive but it was the start.

Congrats Rif! You deserve the views. The information you share and the honesty in how you express it has always been a big motivator for me. Thank you.

Your blog and Jordan's were two blogs I started focusing on when I first started getting interested in training seriously. I really got a sense of how hard consistent work leads to success. I'm glad your still going strong.

Here's to many more productive years ahead!
