daily practice and……boots and shoes…also my gloves.

yesterday (technically)…….

i did a lot of movement on all fours. i would do this sorta thing till i got winded and then go on with other things, then go back to another round. i did some of this indoors, some of it i did at the park, on the ground, stairs, and on railing. i did a little bit of planting one foot on a wall and sticking pretty decent. i stretched. when i went to the park i went over some tables and things like that, not the most graceful, but just to get over instead of around. i didnt do much in the way of rolling, and that is one thing i keep telling myself i know i need to do over and over and over because it is an essential thing, but so is the movement on all-fours, because you never know when you’re going to need to recover from a not-so-graceful movement with this type of thing or land on your face. right now i’m not wearing bricks, i’m wearing ADIDAS LIQUIDS. i’ve never been into shoes, and they dont last me, so i usually wear boots, but i’ve been trying to do the conditioning in these things and i havent been doing much, but still i have to give Adidas some credit here, bc i really thought these things wouldnt even come close to holding together this long (since march 25th, 2012).

i havent worn them for everyday use much, i’ve tried to just use them when i’m going out to jump around a little, which is supposed to be daily but it hasnt been. the first thing i figured would happen would be the mesh tearing away from the sole, and i have no signs of that at all. the sole is soft, and i’ve taken some chunks out of it, but i am extremely rough on shoes and i wouldnt fault these things just because of what i put them through. they have surprised me and i will keep track of how well they hold up. same with anything i do or wear for gear. i dont think anycertain specific things are required, i mean i was at my best in boots. ASOLO’s used to be the best, in my opinion, but i havent owned a pair in a while. (i’ve been broke, and they aren’t cheap, but they are really worth the cost. i had a pair of gray suede ones that i never did shred, but i dont know where they are, and they’d be too small for me now by like half a size.)

i still need to find a good routine that isnt so random, for conditioning, but i’d like to keep the element of randomness in daily practice going, to keep my muscle memory confused, but in some things i want to get my muscle memory a bit more precise. i also need a better schedule for eating and sleeping, because this randomness isnt good for me.

today i’ll be getting the vivobarefoot neo’s, and i’ll keep track of those from the unpacking to the time i have to get a new pair of shoes again.

i’ve been wearing gloves with the thumb and a few fingers exposed (i cut them like that) to keep from tearing my hands up too bad, and the gloves have held up good, but i’m gonna have to get a new pair real soon. these i wear now are gloves i’ve had for a long time but only wore in cold weather before recently, good gloves, but not made for what i’m using them for. they’re Gates.

progression, or lack thereof….

might as well keep some sort of track of how i go from garden slug to more agile and able garden slug, right?

i dont want to hear that you cant do it, because i’m gonna do it and gonna blog about it and if i can do it you can.


perfect timing.

the first thing i want to do is find some good footwear to try out, believe it or not, when i used to do this stuff 20 years ago, i wore combat boots, or other boots. they were the only thing that wouldnt be shredded in the first few weeks.

I’m interested in going the opposite direction from cement blocks that can handle the abuse, i’m going for something minimal.

VIVOBAREFOOT NEO’s are supposed to get here tomorrow. i may be out of shape and not doing too much, but i still shred shoes so fast they arent even worth buying. boots are the only footwear that last me, and i tear them up too, but they can take more abuse. this will be the first minimalist shoe i’ve ever worn. i’ll keep a running commentary on these things, see how they handle me.

right off the top

man, for certain i’m going to need the input of those who do this stuff now, it’s been so long for me, my first obstacle is to just get back into the shape i need to flow with the terrain.

they call it Parkour??

The reason I’m Daredevil92103——
The daredevil part came from the things I did that make people think I need put on a leash. If you put me near a big rock, i’m probably going to try and climb it. If you put me near the ocean, I’m swimming miles out so I can scream songs and look around and see nothing but water. I have no excuse for my actions except I’m curious and an adrenaline junkie. Right now I’m in the shape of a garden slug, and jogging just isn’t going to entertain me. I need the adrenaline. Especially if I don’t have someone to work out with and keep me motivated. I need to be in some sort of danger and be at one with my surroundings. The only thing I now of that I can afford is this type of running around like a madman that I used to do a long time ago, and I hear it has a name now. Parkour. I think everyone should do it. It is the reason picnic tables, walls,stairs, and everything else you are supposed to go around or use in some way was really invented.
The biggest problem is where to begin getting back into the shape needed to flow. Back in the day I was in all kinds of martial arts and did all the things that just made parkour a sort of natural part of the art of motion and balance. Now…..I’m not.
The whole concept of an obstacle is seen from a different view to anyone who has ran around like I used to. It’s not something that stops you, it isn’t something you avoid, it’s something you flow with and turn the experience into art. Same with this old garden slug thing…….
C’mon, how many of you who have done this Parkour thing before wouldn’t be just like I feel right now if you woke up in this shape!
LMAO. You’d be right on top of it, and so off I go……..
This is me starting from the ground, up.
I’ll sort of keep a rambling journal of babble, and I hope to get some input from those of you that do free running or parkour.
If you havent done this sort of thing, then I hope this gets you motivated to do it. If I can, then anyone can.

should i start blogging again???

man, i’m thinkin about starting back up again, but i dont think i really want to even talk politics, or anything like that.
i made my point. ——look into things for yourself.
hell, mostly all i did was find interesting things, food for thought.
what next???
anything but politics.

Censorship of blogs:now they’re getting us to censor our own. has TV Legal News (Gwendolyn Jackson) or someone else asked you to take a post down because it’s “potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers”?

do me a favor. link this to your blog, post, etc. leave a comment. get your friends to leave a comment. if you’ve been asked to remove a post, tell us about it. we need to figure out who all is doing this, how widespread it is, then expose it and stop it from happening. now.

i havent blogged since jan. ’08, but there some things i cant ignore. using fear or patriotism to get a blogger to remove a post is, well, i’ll pick a fight about that.

right now i have no access to the internet, aside from calling friends. i lucked into having time to write this at a friends house, so it’s going to be short and sweet. i’ve had this happen to me, four times, on posts written almost two years ago, if not longer. when i found out it was happening to others, i decided i needed to post this. this is just on the basic situation, and the technique.

free speech is the ESSENCE of blogging. censorship, in any form, cannot be tolerated. at all. period. it is my opinion that an unknown number of bloggers are being censored, forced to take down posts. those doing this to us would say different. they were “just informing” us, something along those lines. first, the technique:

you get an email or comment you need to moderate. this email/comment informs you that your post is ” potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers.” something similar maybe. one of mine also said that someone was facing criminal charges for the posting and re-posting of the material contained in the post. you look up who sent it. the person is a high-profile journalist, lawyer, former army JAG.


most people, to say the least, will be frightened and take down the post. some may even delete their whole blog. i mean, honestly, what choice do you have? to leave the post up is “potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers”.  most of us have friends and family that are “U.S. soldiers”. we dont want to risk them. the point is YOU HAVE TO TAKE IT DOWN, BUT YOU ARENT DIRECTLY BEING FORCED TO DO SO.

i mean you could leave it up, but your going to probably feel like a traitor, or worse.

not only will you take that post down, most of you would avoid blogging about anything even remotely related to that subject. so, not only will you take down the post, you’ll be really be careful on what you blog about. this is a real sneaky way of circumventing freedom of speech without actually infringing on it. it goes further. it will censor your future posts before you’ve even thought of them,because it censors your thinking about what can and cannot be written. i mean you dont want it happening again. i dont care how they put it, its censorship. it’s more than censorship, its worse. why should you care if it isnt happening to you? well, since it works so good, it will be used against more bloggers, about more subjects, and eventually it will happen to you. none of us can afford to let this go on. IT HAS TO STOP NOW. the CIA is supposedly censoring more things on the internet. they are labeling people “domestic terrorists”. if they arent already using this technique, they or someone like them will. if someone “informs” you that your post is “potentially harmful to U.S. soldiers”, maybe you should ask them to provide some evidence to substantiate that claim. a couple days with no answer, or something vague, will probably get you to take it down.


no, i dont think Ms. Jackson is running around doing this for fun. nor do i think she is even a major part of this. something is driving these people to do this. more on this later.

please comment. good or bad, for or against my point of view, it might take a while but your comment will go up. as always, if you wish to remain anonymous, begin your comment with ” From: Anonymous”. i will put it up myself. in my opinion, this is one of the most important issues bloggers as a group have ever faced. IT NEEDS TO STOP.
