Default Traversing the Obstacles of Life and BJJ

Goals:
--longevity and health
--stay in shape for hiking, traveling, being husband, and life
--Now BJJ

I don't want to work at the extremes of the strength <-----> endurance spectrum to often. Why? Because I find both extremes BOOOOOOORINGGGGG. But that is just me.

Old injuries: Right hip from excessive running when training for 50 mile foot race.
--Medial Meniscus troubles that flare occasionally.
