Night Endurance Sessions
« on: September 06, 2006, 03:30:08 PM »
I found a great method of training that boosts your endurance, speed, creativity, and awareness.  At night go to an area with assorted things to jump, or basically anywhere with something to do parkour on.  Pick a distance and run full speed the entire way creating a run as you go alone.  It really helps you be aware of the obstacles because it is night, and creativity because your trying to put a run together on the fly. Try and set the distance as far as you can until you can't run any longer. often when I train like this I find myself going back to the same part to see what kind of new runs I can make. Hope you guys try this new style out.

Yeah, I read the the other day.  I actually found myself able to do stuff a lot more cleanly at night then I would during the day because I really had to be careful about it.

also a lot of the sensory distractions are gone at night.  Less ambient noise and visual distractions.  You can really focus on what you are trying to do.
