2012 Fitness Baseline

So after having suffered enough self-induced over-analyzing for one week, and thanks to Sifu’s patience and Michael’s wise advisements, and under the positive influence of my wife Adrienne (who thinks it’s just fantastic that all FMK ranking requires annual demonstrations of fitness maintenance), I decided this morning to go ahead and take a baseline measurement of where I’m at. Seemed an auspicious day to do it: September 1st is easy to remember for the future, and it’s the full moon of Pakkii’pistsi Otsitai’tsspi (When Chokecherries Ripen) by our calendar. The run was pretty slow, but I’m generally happy with everything else, and I know there will be significant improvements next time around. Here are my stats and video…
