association rencontres francophones lille
"What I have to take a test?" No, seriously I had an idea of what my friend had in mind for me when he mentioned the "threshold test", but I did NOT consider the suffering that would go into it. Quinn, the man responsible for designing this website as well as many other things, including the very gym I would take the test in is really into numbers. I've come to the conclusion that he loves numbers, he loves crunching them, he loves looking at them, and he loves talking about them. As he rambleD on about his numbers I often respondED with, "I have no idea what that means". He'd barely pause at my confusion as he told me about watts, cadence, power, and heart rates.

Cut to last night. I decided to step into his world and see what all these numbers could mean for me. I threw a leg over his gravel machine and uttered the words, "I'll do whatever you tell me to do", what a mistake. The last thing I have a clear memory of him saying was that he wanted to "take the SNAP out of my legs". I moved through a series of all out efforts, gasping for air during the recovery periods. As I finished his last interval he announced to me that the site rencontres amicales entre femmes "test"was about to start. WHAT???!!!b2ap3_thumbnail_Threshold5-2.jpg

20 minutes of the hardest effort I could sustain for that time period was the task. I know as you read this you're thinking, "20 minutes, I could do anything for 20 minutes", and I'd say you're right, but it ain't easy! As I lifted my effort up to what I thought was a pace I could hold I became fixated on the numbers. I stared at the gps watching my wattage jump all over the place, "what does this all mean?" t I thought. I played games in my mind about trying to stay higher than certain figures, thinking it would be better if I was higher than ... It wasn't long before I put the towel over the monitor reminding myself of the same thing I tell myself in every race, "it's just pedaling, just do it harder".

The last 5 minutes dragged on and on as I tried to finish strong. It had to end. I knew that eventually the pain would stop and I'd find my way back toward the light.

Today I received a series of numbers on a chart with a note attached that told me I did a good job. I go back in 6 weeks to do it all over again. Then, maybe I'll understand what all these numbers really mean.b2ap3_thumbnail_10822104_10205426904902009_316252860_o.jpg

    Magnificent Information sharing .. I am remarkably energetic to investigate this article .. appreciative for giving us experience info.Fantastic beautiful. As you said, your story seems to be unique from that by other writers, which I have read. Novel is somehow a fictional story writing in general. But in order to keep the readers thrilled, it should be well written with beauty. Being a journalist, one can get good experience in writing with some flavors.
