Full How

When the heart starts drawing its brand-logo with sweat from the inside on the T-shirt, then spring is in the air.

Fun comes from 'how' we do things. It is what an individual has to offer. How we do things. The tactics. Fun are the fruits of that labour. Rising like smoke, lighter than air. The more we are trained, the better we perform at operating in this happy state. 

It motivates to continue with the task and to not-quit. To continue will provide a full experience of 'how'. A 'full how'. Flow. Quit and you're done. My grandfather used to say: "The rotten apple does not fall far from the rotten tree."

No title

Today, evenening snack. Pickels, cheese, meat, ginger, few slices of bread with pesto, some pre-fab Chinese sauce and red pepper.

Parkour in the mist

The symmetrical garden of the Assumburg Castle in Heemskerk. Training can be characterised by its symmetrical composition. To 'go the distance', say 10 K, requires to get back the same distance. This is where the benefit of training lies. Especially in the winter. You can't just stop. You will freeze. You have to keep moving to return. This is how endurance is built. There is no quitting option.

Power vs Force

'The fence and the tide' at the south pier, IJmuiden. Midpoint in a parkour. Behind the pier the entrance of the canal, leading trough the locks to Amsterdam. Turningpoint. From here on it is back to start.

The kaleidoscope

Haarlem today. Barefoot 'short track' training on the portable parkour in the garden (4.2979 x 1.34514 ft.). Outside is enough free air for everybody.
