The Grass Terrain
EXPERIENCE NOTE: This experience should take place at a high school track. You will need a stop watch or a timer of some sort – phone.
A. Run 2 laps at a Z1 pace. Say a prayer as you jog. Start the prayer out by stating what you are thankful for, and then ask for help in being a more thankful person. Ask for help to be able to live in the moment more often, and to have the ability to enjoy all moments while clear. Really look to meditate and self introspect during these first two warm-up laps.
B. Tabata Push Ups – 4 Minutes
NOTE: Tabata means 20 seconds on, 10 seconds off – for 4 total minutes. So you do push ups for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, pushups for 20 seconds, rest for 10 seconds, and so on and so forth.
C. On the football field, from one end-zone to the other perform:
5 Xplosive Burpee broad jumps + Sprint to the opposite end-zone and then walk back X 5.
NOTE: While walking back, during the rest- work on deep breathing techniques (in through the nose, out through the mouth), while at the same time getting lost in meditative thinking. If you don’t know what a burpee broad jump is then youtube it.
D. Run 2 cool down laps @ Z1 pace. Say another prayer, almost an extension of your warm up prayer. Turn your thoughts and conversation towards being thankful.
E. Read 80 minutes accumulated over the weekend (4 twenty minute sessions). Read something that will help you you to learn something out about yourself. Study about someone or something that will further your insight concerning the big picture of life. Email me what you read – and then write about how the experience went in it’s entirety and then email me what you wrote. [email protected]
