A though occurs to me.
Realising that despite my martial arts training, my general fitness has plateaued. I plan to add some running into the mix. But I know I can't run for very long in one go, and I now know all about over training and the need to pace ones self.
To that end, I'm thinking of starting the C25K program. For the benefit of anyone that might not have heard of it, it's basically an app on your phone that guides you when to walk and when to run, gradually building up over a few weeks.
No problem there.
But a thought occurs. In martial arts, we're taught that awareness is our number one priority in staying safe. Further, many instructors seem to like to use the example of people wearing headphones and looking at their phones as an example of people that are not doing themselves any favours when it comes to staying safe.
Sorry. I'm not really asking a question here. Just musing. I do wonder though what others might think.
