One, two, three, four…steps, reps, seconds, heartbeats, minutes, quarter hours, half hours, hours, quarter days, half days, days, weeks, months is all a continuum no matter what we are doing.
In three minutes how many arrows may be fired?
In two minutes how many hurdles may be jumped, how many yards on a track covered, how punches and kicks delivered on the bag?
In 90 seconds how many lunges, crunches, and pushups can be done?
In thirty seconds how many times can you vertical throw, catch-squat, then vertical throw a soft medicine ball?
Short intervals are lightening bolts in our training lives. The difference from lightening: we can harness this training energy. Our bodies are like the Earth and the training we do is the lightening feeding into us.
The movements, momentum, and good form matter…the pace you intuitively know is what you need to progress, i.e. to come back again tomorrow and train again.
It’s a beautiful freedom to have and use, so gratitude inspiring each day.
