The Runners and Bikers
Mind – Gym week has been a fun, and we couldn’t get to everyone, but if there is one group of folks we are not going to let off the hook without a little fun, it’s the runners and bikers. I just have one question for them both, “What’s up with the shorts?” Runners need theirs short and silky, and the bikers need them tight and padded. I know, I can hear the posts now about how I just don’t understand and both are for pure function. I am all about function, but how about the leg-shaving thing as well? Wind resistance and road rash I know. Or maybe the Navy’s back at the Tail Hook thing again…too soon? Probably. In all seriousness though, these are two disciplines that take a lot of serious cardio training to be competitive at. A little blood doping helps too…also too soon? Yes! Let me finish up by saying LIKEAFIGHTERPILOT seeks balance when it comes to training. Too much cardio is not good for G tolerance, and no cardio means you will exhaust yourself by the end of your first two defensive fighter maneuvers. Same thing goes for life, seek balance and work some cardio and strength resistance training. Next week we will cover fighter pilot traditions. Cheers, check six and God Bless.
