There are two ways to approach this workout. First is the “Fly and Die” method. In this method you go has hard as you can from the get-go, then just try and maintain the rest of the workout.

The second method is to pace your runs so that they all end up being within a few seconds of each other. With the last sprint or two being the shortest (but still within a few seconds of the other sprints if you paced correctly).

Compare to 080713 and even the 200m sprints on 081105.

Article from Scott Kustes on “The Art of Manliness”

“Be a Man: Learn to Cook”

Back at the beginning of July, Brett asked the question, “Is Cooking Manly?” The poll results were astoundingly lopsided: 95% yes, 5% no. It looks like a vast majority of us are convinced that being able to turn a heap of meat and vegetables into a delicious meal is a vital skill for a man to have.

Why then does it seem that so many men are unable to do something as simple as grilling a proper steak, much less doing something more involved like making a pot of soup (an exceedingly simple task)? Frankly, I know so many guys that would have trouble feeding themselves if a blizzard came through that it’s laughable.

Why do so many of us think it’s manly to cook, yet are unable to do so? Obviously the average male thinks it’s great to be able to slap a steak or some pork chops on the grill. But what about cooking in the kitchen? Is the kitchen the realm of women? Today, let’s look at some reasons that every man should be able to put together a meal, and by “meal” I mean meat AND side dishes, cooked on a grill, a cast iron skillet, or in the oven. . .

    1:34 with the vibram 5 fingers on. Had to run slower to make sure I kept form.

    1:24 / 1:26 / 1:30 / 1:28 / 1:20

    Not bad, but I know I could have done better if I could have kept form (and maybe felt a little better).
