Some great books for slow jogging, slow running, and heart rate aerobic training

Some great books for slow jogging, slow running, and heart rate aerobic training

While it all started with my discovery of Slow Jogging by Hiroaki Tanaka, it's expanded to Slow Running by Chris Bore and The Maffetone Method by Dr. Philip Maffetone. And, of course, there is also the incredibly-useful book, Row Daily, Breathe Deeper, Live Better, by Dustin Ordway, which also suggests consistent, persistent, daily exercise with a twist: there's no such thing as too slow as long as you do it every day.

Like SpaceX and Blue Origin, I always have a hard time even getting off the launchpad to say nothing of neither exploding nor imploding. This time, however, I think I am off the pad and past the riskiest parts of the launch.

My second first day back at CYCLEBAR Columbia Pike was great!

I really enjoyed my second first ride. While yesterday was my first first ride back, I didn't reach any flow. It was just a shakedown. Yesterday's was more fun. I felt back at home. And, I stayed within my Maffetone range of 105-115bpm 90% of the time.

On my first day back at CYCLEBAR

Even though I am not really following along with the class's program or the sprints and grinds and up off the seat and down on the seat HIIT system, being in a class and having a trainer and being committed to not farting around at all during the 45-60-minutes the class takes place, makes it all worth it for me.

Week two of the Dog Days of Summer challenge hosted by Concept2 Logbook

I have been Zwifting, Zwalking, riding, and swinging this Summer. Now, I am adding my Concept2 indoor rower and SkiErg into the mix.

Sharing notes from growing up haole in Hawaii in the 80s

Long story short: maybe I was excluded from stuff for being haole in Hawaii, though I never really knew and it never bothered me. But, it's interesting to hear that there might have been parties and birthdays and beach outings and get-togethers that I was just never part of. Could that be true? I'll never know.
