Do you think about your training routine?

In order to keep inner harmony we need to balance our lives. I been training much harder than I use to do, this spring and summer. In the same time I had lots of work to do.  Without knowing I felt weaker.

Sometime when we are in the middle of a situation or a period of time and we tend to not  really see what is happening to us. We keep on going and so did I without really seeing that the body needed some rest.

As much as training is healthy, rest has also an important impact on the body. Than as you can see under I was working with reporting about the Americas Cup and I wasn’t going down to do any training at the fitness centre. I didn’t have any rest from physical activity however, it was breaking the routine was the thing that got my motivation back. So yesterday when I was back at the gym again I did my cross hill and I ran. I was expecting myself to be in less good condition  because of one week break but actually I surprised myself and did better. I than realised that my better result consisted of a higher motivation and that the routine caused me some kind of stress that I could break. Beeing away a week wasn’t so bad as I expected and resting was healthy for my body I got some good new energy and I managed to increase my running result two days in a row.

Obstacles and force

Results over time

So my page been hacked and my web hotel shot it down. To be honest I wasn’t really happy about it but as I am an entrepreneur I daily face problems and this was another one that I had to put on my problems-to-solve-list.

Well, with a high priority and a good helping hand I solved the problem and the page was up running again.

Time is a problem for me. I always have to measure the time and  see how I can coup with it, however training has a high priority to me so I always try to do some kind of sportive activity.

I couldn’t continue to write about it, however it didn’t stop me from going to the fitness centre.

So if I look back and make a comparison from last time I suppose to write about it. I always keep notes about the result. This is a good thing to do to see how you develop over time.

If I look at my notes of the display I can see that I ran some distance and did some great things over the summer. The figures below show my distance and the result shows my improvement. I added a note over what I did instead of date, moments in our life give us better memories than figures and are much more pleasent.

looking at the running results over the period from the summer, starting with 4,85 the results during 30 minutes has improved. I t has not as the results over the period shows  been totally increasing-instead it has been some ups and downs. But in the end it has shown a small improvement. I believe anyone can obtain slow improvements over the time and this is a secure way to improve your physical condition.
