TRAINING SCIENCE - FITNESS VS REST

I’m currently trying to kick myself into gears and get back to training; not always an easy task! The Flamme Rouge site really helped me understand acronyms like: TSS, ACL, CTL and TSB with their in-depth articles. It’s mostly focussed on cycling, but with these specific terms, it’s equally fine for running.

This particular article is about the important relationship between training and recovery:

Training is a combination of effort and recovery. Just as the effort has to be at the right intensity, so does the recovery. Intense Recovery may seem an oxymoron, but we have to pay as much attention to our recovery as we do our training. Not everyone does.

So how do you ensure you hit the right numbers and maintain constant, sustainable, measurable progression? As you’ll see from other supporting factsheets in this thread; each training session you undertake elicits a training stress on the body. To be of value, we need to measure or define that stress and make use of the information it gives.


RESEARCH WITH DEVONTHINK, ZOTERO AND DROPBOX

Sean Connery doing research!

To be honest, I find it hard to identify the relevant stuff, zapping through different folders, which always gets messed up, with a lot of duplicates and forgotten documents as a result.

As part of my work I often read a lot of articles (typically .pdf’s of blog posts) which I use as inspiration for workshops, presentations, white papers and other assignments.

I most often use my iPad for reading and annotating with Dropbox as storage for the files. I also depend on a bibliography manager for citations and keeping track of authors, publication date etc.

When it comes to the actual writing, I like to toy around with the outline to get the disposition right, pull up an editor and write in fragments, drawing on notes from the various sources I’ve collected.

In the coming sections I’ve described my considerations and choices for my own research & writing workflow.



THE DYNAMICS OF CREATIVITY

Straight from one of the leading personas in the field of creativity, Sir Ken Robinson:

The power of a really original idea like the smart phone is that it generates a storm of related innovations by other people, who become inspired by its possibilities.
