So, I’m a little sick this morning and get up to do my windtrainer session. I am doing a new weekly ritual called Ultimate Intervals. I basically am trying to supersize my V02 Max in 12 weeks. Quite a trying task and involves quite a bit of suffering.
More on Ultimate Intervals later…
I did the first interview and coughed up a nice ball oh phlegm. Yuk I know but how else do you say it. Marilu was next to me and she casually told me “You know what you`d be telling me right now” and my first reaction was fueled by the interval which has just elapsed. I was out of breath and a little aggressive (gotta get my aggro on to hold these damn intervals) and made an excuse on the spot.
It took me a minute to calm down and then I realised she was right on the money. I needed to calm down and keep my HR down. She brought up the good point about my mother who pushed her heart when she was ill and ended up with a damaged heart = i.e. not good for Ironman.
I was upset that my session was overs kadovers but I kept spinning the cranks until an idea came to me and I altered my program to include some GR work. Mail me if you dont know what that is. raoul at urban-ninja dot co dot za. I got through the hour no problem without killing myself and my energy levels have been incredible all day because of it. I actually feel healthier.
Just a random thought. Conquered that stupid ego of mine again this morning with a little help from a gorgeous bystander. Lets get back to work now.
