You can not know where you are going if you do not know where you have been. People perform better when they have a record of their daily input and output. This journal can be as simple as their physical training. A more complex journal will include thoughts, emotions and goals.

My journal entries are small and brief. I suggest a small 4" x 5" page a day. Keep it limited in scope. Anything over 5.5 x 8.5 and you will feel pressures to fill out the entire page with irrelevant garbage.

If you are not keeping a journal your will miss out optimizing your days.

Jeffrey Rutherford eyes his receiver downfield.

Row 2000m for Time

I select rowing as the #1 monostructural cardio vascular mode available. Rowing recently received another vote from researchers at Harvard University. It appears as if rowing generates metabolic momentum that last for some time. See below.

A Harvard University study of 44, 452 men found that rowing 1 hour a week reduced the risk of cornonary heart diseasy by 18 percent. The study also showed that 4,680 former college rowers ages 20 to 60 were far less likely to be obese than the general population, even if they had given up rowing.

Post the number of rounds on the minute. If you fall behind the clock keep going for 20 minutes and see how many rounds you can complete. You score will be record as the total number of rounds on the minute (ie. 10) over the other rounds completed in the remaining time period. (i.e. 5) or 10/5. If you were able to successfully complete all rounds @ 5 reps on 8-18-06, add 1 rep (6 reps) to each movement.
