Training Session #1- June 2
9:45 am to 10:15 am
Outside, a 100 yard soccer field
No hurry. No pause.
30 minutes of constant movement. A combination of walking, jogging, squats, side steps, and lunges.
Times I fell:
Times I got back up:
Running continuously for 100 yards.
Though they’re a little unsteady, warm-up runs seem to remind my brain of the running motion and movements.
My left leg is much weaker than my right. When fatigued, my left leg tends to buckle. Moving forward, I will have to spend extra time and focus on strengthening my left leg.
Rorke Denver, former Navy SEAL commander taught his men that, “calm is contagious.” During training I sometimes to push too hard and get frustrated when I struggle to meet a goal or cross a distance. And when I get frustrated, my form and technique are negatively impacted and the training suffers. I have to remember that keeping calm will keep steady my form. Mind and body–calm is contagious.
“The man turns back to the mirror. His eyes are deep blue like the child’s. Below his soft chest, beats the heart of a child–boundless and wild. A heart that yearns to play outside again. To run, jump, tackle, and swing. To sweat, to bleed, to get dirty again. A heart that is much younger then the body that holds it.”
