aka: the older I get the more I hate longer races.
So here is the deal. I decided to start video taping my workouts, mashing them together, and setting them to some crappy music and poor video editing skills.
This sounds like it should be loaded with win and excellence, right?
I’m partly doing this for some athletes I help in the off-season as well. They need videos and such in order to see how to do things properly. Since we can’t have contact in the Fall, after I give out workouts I need them to be self sufficient and know what to do, what exercise I’m talking about, etc.
The next reason is because I feel like embarrassing myself on youtube.
The last reason is I’d like to have some video footage regularly passing through the hands (eyes) of people on here to keep me in check, tell me when I’m running like an idiot, etc. Most of my plans for this year are falling through and I’m not going to be able to move like I had been planning on, and not only that I’m not going to be able to afford going many places either because I’m helping my mom out with her cancer treatment. She isn’t insured and is uninsurable due to pre-existing conditions. This is expensive to a point that I have no idea how anyone can survive without insurance.
Here’s where you guys come in. As of right now, since its my first week of workouts, I’m just doing very general work. The videos are boring. I need to know what length is a good length for videos (right now I’m shooting for under 3 min each), how much of each exercise you guys would like to see, etc.
I threw up a test video here to see compression rates, text size, Premiere recording 15 seconds of messed up footage at the end. All that fun stuff.
Its loud. You are warned.
This should be interesting to say the least. My goal is to make finals at USATF’s (or semi’s if there are three rounds). As of right now USATF’s falls on a weekend that I already have a Friday off, so its one of the few big races that are feasible for me to go to indoors.
