These are headlines
only, more on this to come...
broke the 12
I'm not one much
for warm-ups.. But sometime you have to..
competitions I used the preliminary rounds to warm up.. except at big
When I taught
fencing.. warm-up time was a good way of getting everyone to focus on
what was ahead
When I hike or
xc-ski.. I'll just go at it.. and will be warmed up after a while
at the gym :
12 minutes.. why?
I was traumatized
in junior high school by the Cooper test.. couldn't run for mor than 8-9
minutes.. so now I figure..so now I just NEED to get to 12 mins every
time I can.
to get a feel of
my energy level. I try to maintain an AveHR or 115.. and sometimes it's
real easy, and sometimes I just can't. after doing that for months..
I've really gotten to see a pattern about how the WU goes.. and how the
rest of my training will be. When I'm on the slow side.. I can already
tell myself that maybe I'll work on my form or leave some exercises til
the end, just in case I don't make it..and when I know I feel good, I up
my weights as soon as I have in inkling to do it.
to rid my head of
the day's worries and thoughts. The gym isn't far from my workplace and
the ride over by car isn't long enough.
to do something
(cycling) while doing shoulder rotations and streches, wrist flexions
and extentions.. neck exercieses, that really make me feel good.
However, I want to start
doing some specific warm-ups before lifting at least a minimal amount,
that would definately be good.
