With that under my belt, everything seems to be back on track. The key to coming back was to staying active during the down time. Even at the height of my cold I made sure to continue to go for walks to keep legs active. As soon as I was starting to feel better I was running on the treadmill at 15min mile pace to have some impact stress to the legs. One day I did 4 hours of running broken up into three workouts so to maintain endurance but not stressing the body so much as too kick start cold symptoms. The reason I choose the treadmill was so I could control the environment and if I started to feel run down at all I could stop at any time.
A cool video, I like the idea of always looking for ways to tap into ones potential, now if we had the same budget as Alberto:-) As I watch this video, my mind wanders. The scariest thing for me, is committing everything you have to one idea and what the repercussions of such an endeavor are and the complete lack of control you have over what actually might transpire.
To truly commit is a concept that most people would say they do, but I would venture a guess there’s always an aspect of hedging your bets or holding something in reserve for the great unknown. After all if we actually went all in, then heartbreak would be enormous. But there would be greatness too. And that’s the tradeoff. To hedge your bets and be good, perhaps with luck great, or to go all in and be great at the endeavour of your choosing.
