Fitness School, Do you know the right answer?. Question 7, Let us talk about Forrest Gump for a while. The gift of running.






Fitness School
Do you know the right answer?.



Question number 7 in our School of Fitness.
Run Forrest run. Forrest Gump, fictional as he was, had this amazing gift not just for ending up in great moments with people of historical importance, but he also had this natural gift for running.
The question is this, do you have to be taught to run as biologically efficient as possible, or are you naturally born with the gift of how to run in the most efficient way possible for you.

[ Oceans run the risk of having more total weight of plastic than fish.]











Make up your mind, and once you have made your pick click the "And the Correct Answer is" label down below to reveal the right one.

1.
Like the best weight lifters and the fastest runners, you have to be taught how to run in the most biologically efficient way there is.
2.
While people and professional athletes have to train to maximize their capacity and to raise their base level. We are all naturally born with the knowledge of how to most efficiently run from a biological point of view.



Option nr 2 is the correct one.
According to the very latest science, we are all indeed born with the biological gift of running in the most efficient way there is for that individual person. It might not be pretty or the fastest way to run any given distance, and it might never push you to great new fitness and health levels, but you are naturally born with the gift to run in the most cardiovascular efficient way your system ( body ) can run.
Fitness and health wise, the takeaway is this.
No one needs to spend time and money worrying about the minor details of running, just put on your shoes and hit the dirt road and do it today, you know how to, just let your body go.
But, on the other hand, just like lifting weights and doing martial arts requires you to progressively push the limits to continually improve beyond your current level so does running, if the goal is to improve health and fitness levels instead of simply maintaining what you have already achieved.

Study up and keep on grinding.

    Moments from the wilderness
    Summer equals offline vacation



    Just a quick hello from my pristine offline vacation.
    I am still enjoying a wonderful and productive offline vacation, but life is this endless waterfall of unbridled inspiration in any given day's endless little things.
    It comes fully packed ( inspiration ) within the beings that inhabit those days, the separate and connected individual moments and all the everyday stuff.

    So I had to pop in for a quick long read post because life inspired me to try and capture the gorgeous real life art which is on full display right in our very own wildlife place, our garden of trees :).

  • Anthropocene: Volvo heralds the global end of the combustion engine-powered car.

    Quality time needed: 3 minutes





    the end of the combustion engine-powered car.
    Anthropocene is the science & footprint of you and me on Planet Earth



    This marks the end of the combustion engine-powered car.
    Volvo going all in on Electric engines in their car offerings.
    Starting 2019, every Volvo will make use of an electric motor.
    To top it off, Volvo will also make use of a completely climate neutral manufacturing operation by 2025.

    And while this is just one good ol car manufacturer crossing over to the better side of car manufacturing, Volvo will of course not be alone in this transition.
    Just as we see energy producers working their ass off to transition to a cleaner world without fossil fuel in their portfolios, car manufacturers are now all in on making safer ( autonomous cars ) and cleaner ( fully electric cars ) vehicles.

  • Anthropocene: a single strand of atoms, a prescient story about plastic litter, our warming oceans and individual health.

    Quality time needed: 10 minutes





    Plastic litter, a prescient story.
    Anthropocene is the science & art of life on Planet Earth



    At some point in life, you might discover yourself having walked far enough outside the map that plots the discourse of the common life that society expects all to follow beyond their birth, and at this point of discovery, this is where you might realize that you can cut out all the distractions of the buzzy bees, and the perceived connotations of what people stubbornly claims to be "just how it is", all while they seemingly refuse to see how things actually are.

    And once you do, the void of white noise and people without words of meaning to express, all the colors and moving shapes from all the non-essential patches that weaves together to raise a banner of hollowness will start to dissipate.

  • Planet Earth: open letter for our planet, health & mutual future to Merkel and our G20 leaders before their meeting with Trump.

    Dear Chancellor Merkel.
    contemporary life is the science & art of Planet Earth



    Dear Chancellor Merkel, I am writing you in your role as one of the more public representatives of Europe ( and the prosperity of the entire world ).
    Billions of people reject Trump’s attempts to divide the world on climate change and our mutual health and wellbeing. His disregard for science and public progress, education, and health.
    And as such, we call on you to lead the G20 meeting towards a healthier and more sustainable future, with or without the involvement of the USA or any other country and leader that is willfully turning its back on the future of humanity, our planet, science, health, and equality.
