First your Cabal Fang WOD. This is nothing on paper. It only takes about 30 mins and my heart rate never got over 150. And yet it was ridiculously hard for me. I would love for somebody to try it and post their feelings.
- Animal Tabata (16 x :20/:10, cycling through Crab Walk, Gorilla Walk, Mule Kicks, Monkey Rolls, 8 mins total)
- PTDICE (4 sets to failure of Hindu Squats, Mtn. Climbers, Full Stop Push-ups, and Jackknifes)
- Heavy Bag Boxing Power Drill (8x:30/:30. Complete as many max power shots as you can in :30, rest for :30, repeat. 8 Mins total).
And now for the rest of the story…
Sorry for the dramatic title, I just couldn’t resist. I probably should’ve called this post, “Wallpaper in my Blood” but “Blood on the Wallpaper” is much more enticing.
Flashback. When I was a kid my father used to run a small remodeling company on the side. I started off young helping out around the shop, but as I got bigger I started taking on more responsibility. One of the things I seemed to have a knack for was wallpapering. By the time I was 17, Pop was sending me solo on wallpapering jobs in million dollar homes. I probably shouldn’t be allowed to wallpaper a doghouse these days, but back then, I was the stuff.
Fade in. Among my mother’s things I found her father’s business card. Grandfather Naff passed away when I was a youngster, so I only met the man once.
Here’s his card. As you can see, it says, “J. W. Naff — Exclusive Paperhanging.”
And so it goes…
