Daily Log 22 April 2011



Do you sometimes feel like you’re misunderstood? I get that feeling a lot. I like to think of myself as a man of principle. There are certain principles and values that I hold dearly to. I wrote briefly about one them (mastery) a few days ago. I apply these principles ruthlessly in my life and I reckon it’s one of the reason why I have been able to achieve the success that I have been achieving. I insist on it in my life as well as within my own sphere of influence. Because of this, I do make people uncomfortable around me.

One of the things I have to learn is to let go. At the end of the day, people will want to live in a way that they feel bests suits them. Even if I think otherwise, I should bite my tongue until asked. It’s tough though and I have to continuously learn it.


I went on the bike today. The last time I biked was on tuesday so I had to start slowly. I went through the usual stuff in my head about stopping and quitting the bike workout but once I got through it, I just pedaled on quietly while watching American Idol on telly. I felt a bit sluggish today and couldn’t generate the speed that was generating the last 2 weeks.

Phase 1 Warm up 15 minutes
Phase 2 Hard 20km
Phase 3 Warm down 15 minutes
The POLAR data as follows:
(during Phase 2)
Average Heart Rate 62% MHR
Average pace 1.48 min per km
Average Cadence 66
Distance covered 20.01 km (total- 27.86 km)
Calories 536 kcal
Time 35 min 58 sec (total time 66 minutes)
Very slow indeed. My cadence is usually in the high 70s or low 80s. it was tough for me to reach 70 today.
Maybe it’s because I’ve been having a bad day.
I’m preparing for my swim lesson tomorrow so I spent some more time in the pool tonight. Like last nights swim, I barely did any drills tonight, focussing instead on getting the laps in. I swat 16 laps today which is equivalent to 1.6 km.
My POLAR data as follows:

Time 50 minutes
Average heart rate 58% MHR
Calories 614 kcal

Anyway, not much else to write about especially in the mood I’m in.

Nuff said..
