The whole thing was pretty damn humbling, but also really empowering. I was kind of surprised at which skills I could do today that I didn't think I'd be able to (like crawling on a beam, which I really struggled with from the get-go, because I lack sufficient hip stability in contralateral movements). Got to work one-on-one with Erwan on my running and jumping over the past couple of days... We did SO MUCH work... It was pretty amazing, and I came home with a few things I really want to spend some time working on... I was also really impressed with their progressions and the way they teach people how to coach. Anyway, this will be a PM article so people can read more about it then.

Between my broken car and my broken dryer and giving people rides and emergency deadlines and the training, I'm pretty damn beat. I haven't slept more than 5 hours a night for the past 2 weeks. Gonna take a few days to recover while I get the car fixed and then go from there.

I look forward to your wrap-up of the MovNat thing, years ago I remember reading an article in Mens Health about Erwan. Some of the stuff the author said Erwan was doing seemed pretty amazing, tried looking it up and doing more Movnat-esque stuff into my training for a bit but that was back in 2009.

5 hours/day for 2 weeks! Always seems like it pours when it rains doesn't it? Going to stick to Paleo during your recovering days?
