As you’ve pretty much gather I am all about getting the most out of our brains and body as we possibly can. I’m always trying to figure out how to get more out of what I have. I’m definitely not the smartest guy in the room and have never been the most physically gifted person either. My body is tough, just not at the top of scale of anything. So I’ve been forced to learn how to work with what I have. Usually I succeed by working a little harder or just sticking with something until everyone else gives up.
I’ve been reading some great books lately and one of them is Endure. It’s a book about the limits of the human body. Much of it proves exactly what I’ve always thought. Limits are created by the mind. The mind is there to save you from yourself. You can’t breathe? It makes you pass out so you relax and start breathing. You running too far? It puts out three chemicals that stop your muscles from working. Lactic acid being one. But it needs the other two in addition to shut you down. How do I stop one of the three? I have always felt that if I could teach my body that everything is OK that it will let me do more. So I train it. I push things a little further week by week, month by month, trying not to trigger anything. Then when I ask it to do something unusual it has no fear of it. It thinks, “I’ve done this before. We’re good” It allows me to think, run, and react just a little faster and a little longer than I used to.
I learned this from analyzing performance. Any time I was at a familiar venue or event. Speeches, races, tests. I always had my best performances. New things, new courses? I always got tired or got nervous. My mind seemed to get the best of me. So now I make sure that if I am going to try something different or at a different location, I get familiar with it before the event. And it really has helped me. Especially in races. I will drive the course. Do a Google street map. Just to get familiar with the place. When I would take a test, give a speech, I will go to the building and sit in the room. It’s silly but it works for me. Turn the grind into a familiar grind.
The book has more great info if you’re in to that type of thing. My friend who is a sports medicine doctor thought I would like it because it is about stuff we’ve been discussing for years. Things we’ve thought but now have some science behind it. It also made my daughter think that I might be little wiser than she gives me credit for. Since everything I told her seems to be right. She would never admit it but she’s just like me in her approach to work, running, and school. The difference is I feel amazing for an old guy and that’s good enough. She is looking to compete. Compete for scholarships, jobs and life. I’m hoping I’m giving here an edge. So far so good.
On a completely different note. I bought a pair of the new Jordan BREDs below. I had no idea how popular they would be. I just wanted them because they were just like a pair I owned 3 decades ago. But now they’re going for $300 on StockX and I think I’d rather have the money now. It’s crazy that 30 years later they are just as popular as the day I bought my first pair. Then again the business model was to try and sell as many shoes as they could back in the day. Not pretend they are more popular than they are.
