Go for long term efficiency
When swimming, the more you can get out of a stroke, the better. In other words, the less strokes you can do in a lap, the more efficient you can swim. But when it comes to running or cycling, often the opposite is true. It’s better to run with shorter steps to avoid burnout and prevent injury, and when cycling, generally the higher the cadence, the better.
These approaches are different, but they are all in an effort of playing off fatigue, meaning you can exercise for longer.
Long term efficiency over short term gain. If you’re in it for the long run, this is your only option.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.
I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.
On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.
