PNS day 30 – what would a SEAL do?

Filed under: Uncategorized — Muli Ben-Yehuda @ 6:41 PM

Weight continues dropping, and I’m breaking new grounds. May the trend continue unabated!

This morning I went to the pool and swam my customary 1 kilometer. I was very close to quitting at the 500 meters mark and at the 750 meters mark. Each time, I asked myself what a SEAL would do, and just kept going. As the gym-master says, exercising is half muscles and three quarters will power.

My reward for the swim is aching all over, and a small measure of satisfaction at not quitting. I’ll take the latter even with the former any day.

Tomorrow the plan is weights in the morning, and likewise on Thursday. I’m thinking tennis on Saturday will be swell… now I just need to find a partner-in-crime.


  1. Have you ever (or listened read) Henry Rollins? I read his stuff for motivation some times, esp. when traveling.

    • Is this the same Rollins as in The Rollins Band? if yes, I’ve heard some of their stuff, but never really listened. Got any recommendations?

      • It is a bit of a conundrum for me to tell someone where to start with Rollins. I’ve been a fan of his work for so long now. Next time we meet I’ll try and give you the gist of it.
