I will be at the track @ 5:00... we will work on technique for the 9 basic movements.








This is a view from atop Mt. Henry in Montana...
On a clear day (as shown in the picture) one can see over 100 miles into Canada...
To the left a bit, I was able to see enough horizon to actually see the curve of the earth...

What, Optical Delusion???


For time:
45 Double-unders
135 pound Squat clean, 45 reps
45 Ring Dips
45 Double-unders










Optical illusions are illusions of the mind in its visual field of perception. What mind perceives there to be, is not there. Or otherwise, what mind perceives not to be there, is very much there. Why does mind perceive the opposite? Or is it the eye that does so? What is the line separating the eye from the mind or, to be exact - say, the brain? A part of the eyeball, called the retina, is said to be an extension of the brain into the eye.

Retina is as much a part of the eye as it is of the brain, connected to it through the optic nerve that takes the signals of all the image sensations falling on it to the brain, which later decodes them back into the visual perceptions.

Does the eye get fooled or does the brain get fooled by what the optical illusions look to be like?
