Very intersting Joe.
let me allow to include one world among all that you did: RECOVER !
Apart of your deep sincerity, but "errere humanun est" (mistakes that are human), and only those who don´t try don´t make mistakes, but also those who try they learn from the experience, and let me say that we learn from the failures more than from the sucess.
That you last post brings us for a intrigue question: May we train "à-la-carte" or "à-la-table d´hote" ? That means "à-la-carte" that you have a menu that you can choose: win, or water or beer, or sugar drinks, or bread or soup, or meat or fish, or salade or vegetables or desert or fruit, and "à-la-table d´hote" that the restaurant have a mix menu elaborate by them and that you just can accept or refuse. Why i say so ?
May we train by choosing paces or physiologic "zones" with all power of decision, looking for each individual need or may we train because they say that exists a speed, a max.Vo2 zone, an anerobic thershold zone an aerobic and an anaerobic effect ?
All of you, what do you think?
