UPDATE: A Yearning Heart…..”Once Upon A Time…..”

27 Jul

This is an UPDATE on a post I did awhile back about a friend of mine.

Well, well, well! Life never ceases to amazing me!

SHE MARRIED A “SUGAR DADDY” THIS SUMMER! AND SECRETLY NO LESS!

NOT MUCH TO SAY, SAME STORY THAT HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR CENTURIES AND ALL OF TIME. THE ALLURE OF “SECURITY” FOR THE FEMALE GENDER DOMINATES THEIR DECISIONS OF MATING.

Whatever! The below that I wrote before is a pile of crap and so is the current London Olympian it’s written about.

But wondering?? Hmmmm???!!! This is not a dumb girl. She is a current Olympian who should have no business to do anything with a guy like me…but she does..she lays land minds that she knows will blow off my legs but not kill me. She knows I will reply in some form!!!

SORRY BABE, YOU WILL NOT USE ME AS A DRAMATIC EXCUSE TO PERFORM LESS THAN YOU ARE CAPABLE OF AND THAT IS WINNING! FIRST PLACE! YOU CAN DO IT…YOU KNOW IT… YOU TRAINED IT, YOU OWN IT…NOW DO IT.

XOXO

Once upon a time, in a land far far away lived a princess.

A princess like none other, for her heart was full of love and kindness equal only to her amazing beauty.

She was smart beyond her years, wise, with an outlook on life that warms your heart, and puts a smile on your face.

On the other side of the universe lived a prince.

Handsome and strong with broad shoulders his presence was welcomed with respect and high regard everywhere he went.

His mind was sharp, quick, and he could see the world in a refreshing positive light.

The prince and the princess connected mentally as their minds and hearts were a perfect match, completing the other. Powerful as individuals, super powerful together.

Their attraction to each other was different from any other relationship, for the prince and princess connected on a soul level. Souls wrapped around the others, hearts that beat as one. Minds that bond like no others.

Their love was a pure love, like 2 kids playing on a warm summers day, happy, fun, not a care in the world. For when the prince and princess were together, time stood still, happiness, and laughter, and a content, warming love was within them.

This was a union on the deepest level which was unbreakable. Forever, and No Matter What, they had found their soulmate in the other.

Once upon a time it happened! Dreams do come true! The fairy tale does exist! Once upon a time……

How to Train to Achieve a New World Record Time in the 400 Meters Hurdles! – Track & Field

1 Jul

Achieving success in life is no different than breaking the World Record in the 400m Hurdles, Track & Field event.

All of life is like making a pie. When making a pie, it requires specific ingredients, preparation, and cooking. You can’t just throw all the ingredients into a pan and put it in the oven! You have to prepare each ingredient to perfection first, then put it all together.

Setting a new world record in the 400M Hurdles is no different.

FIRST STEP:
Break the race down into “ingredients” or parts.

* STEP TWO: Getting out of the blocks
* STEP THREE: Acceleration to the first hurdle
* STEP FOUR: Maintaining form and maximizing controlled speed over first several hurdles, “finding the groove, getting your mojo on”
* STEP FIVE: Being a powerful “machine”, technically “in the zone”, 2’nd and 3’rd 100’s.
* STEP SIX: Wrapping it up strong through superior training and endurance so that you do not fade or lose technical form the last 100 meters.
* STEP SEVEN: Clearing the final hurdle and turning on the after-burners with a great lean at the finish line with no let up.

So those are the parts. Now easily said, but how do you set a new World Record?

It’s simple! Each part or “ingredient” needs to be mastered at World Record speeds and technique, one at a time! Let me say this again, ONE AT A TIME, at World Record speed!

So, start at the beginning, STEP TWO: You know that you have to get out of the blocks at a certain speed to be even close to WR time. Identify what that time requirement is. Practice it, only it. Practice and perfect getting out of the blocks in world record time, EVERY TIME!

Then onto STEP THREE: Acceleration to the first hurdle. Identify what is the World Record time needed only up to the first hurdle. Practice, what you have already perfected at World Record time in getting out of the blocks, and perfect the acceleration part to the first hurdle at World Record time. Do not move onto step four until you are out of the blocks and at the first hurdle at World Record pace.

Do you see the formula here?

So, now you’re out of the blocks and at the first hurdle at World Record pace, so now move onto STEP FOUR…..Find your groove, get comfortable, over the next few hurdles, and keep doing STEPS 2, 3, and now 4 until you have them tied together ALL at World Record pace.

And then do the same things for the remaining Steps. With each step you master at World Record time, tying all the previous steps together, you end up with an amazing tasting pie, and a NEW WORLD RECORD!

The time requirements for each athlete for each individual Step, might vary a little. Some runners have one heck of a finish, and can be a bit slower on some of the previous steps. The bottom line though, is you know what the total time has to be, so it is up to each athlete to carve up his or her race into pieces of a pie! Get out a piece of paper and draw a time-line. If you know 50 seconds is the total, then start entering the times you have to have for each of the Steps!

Again, start at the beginning and bake your pie one step of the recipe at a time, mastering EACH STEP at World Record time before moving onto the next step!

Good luck and don’t forget an EathZebra shout-out in the post race interviews! :)!
