Training In Hoth

Finally got that first blizzard of the year, and since the college closed up for the day in response, I had an opportunity to get outside and play. To this effect, I started off my morning with CLF form practice at the local park, after feeding the birds...

Then for pretty much the rest of the day, I went out on a 20 km round in the coulees. For the first 10 km, I ran and stopped here and there to train in other ways...

During the return journey, I hiked and used the occasion to set out a few of my thoughts regarding training in nature. This is partly in response to Todai Ling's recent 'Training In The Forest' post, but also it just needed to be done, because I'm beginning to realize how the addition of physical training to my normal outdoors routine makes sense for me at this particular point in my spiritual development...


  1. Nice jacket with logo, it looks great! I can't believe you have snow over there already. Over here, we just had a few days in the 80's! I saw your horse stance video. Great form. I have approved the video for the Kwoon records. It now stands at 1 min. 14 sec. Keep up the good work!

  2. Cool... I figure it's just an initial baseline. Should be easy to build on
