Keeping My Word

Long-range Strength is an experiment in personal growth. It’s my personal training log while pursuing maximum strength and endurance and a dump for my ideas while studying how to improve my training.

I’m being reminded as I get older that long-term goals are exactly that: long-term. This is my way of keeping my long-term goals fresh.

I’m no certified personal trainer. I’m not an elite athlete, either. This is just another step in holding myself accountable so that I will stay on the course.

I’ll be updating my progress here at the end of every six-week training cycle while also writing out my training priorities for those cycles.
