Bring It

As I'm going through P90X, the first month is over and thus comes the much needed recovery week. It's been a rough three weeks, with me initially unable to complete almost all the videos all the way without added breaks, but gradually moving to being able to keep up with Tony in plyometrics and "legs and back."

Thinking this recovery week was going to be a breeze compared to the normal program, I didn't bring a successful mindset to "Core Synergistic." Yoga is probably the hardest program right now for me, and it preceded the core synergistic; I thought the hard part was over (until tomorrow... which is yoga again).

When the program started hitting me with plank runs, and jail-cell pushups, I ran out of juice. My ego was super hurt. The next two days, I followed the schedule, eager to try synergistic again. Today, I finally got to do it again.

My muscles responded much better today. I did the same number of reps for everything and actually completed the whole program plus a few of the bonus rounds without feeling any stronger.

A correct mindset is a must.

Dear Wimbledon

If you watched the Isner-Mahut match, you'll know that the scoreboard malfunctioned late in the fifth set. That doesn't make sense, so I'll offer some pseudocode for the new upgrade that might come up.

set = [0,0] //Set won by each player

games_won = [0,0] //Games won for the current set

current_set = 1 //which set we're tracking

updateNumber() //assuming there's a function for updating the number with
//syntax as (player number, set) and adds one to the game

while (set[0] != 3 || set[1] != 3):
while abs(games_won[0] - games_won[1]) < 1 :
temp = int(input("who won the game?")) //assuming the referee inputs stuff corectly
updateNumber(temp, current_set)
set[temp] += 1
current_set += 1

print "Player " temp+1 " is the winner!"

You're welcome Wimbledon.

(... hmm there might be a bug in there somewhere....)

How to Make a Vuvuzela (the Expensive Way)

So I was bored today, and two neurons clicked:

6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 59-59

This is just plain amazing.

The match between Isner and Mahut has gone on for over 10 hours; the average men's tennis match lasts only three and a half hour. Lets put that in context shall we?

Imagine going to a football game. In my mind, the typical football (American) lasts around four hours. Now imagine the football game lasting twelve hours. I bet half the player would get some sort of dementia at the age of 30 after that. (Lets not even go into rugby.)

Getting into this World Cup fever: the rules of FIFA overtime is two periods of 15 minutes. A soccer game lasting 90 minutes would have to play six overtimes. Count them: One, two, three, four, five, six.

I'm so shocked right now.
