Cycling update

Let’s do ‘a Wimmeke’ and let me also give you a small update on what I’ve been doing with my cycling hobby.

To start I’ve finally invested in a good Heart Rate monitor from Polar. Because it’s a cycling edition, it also comes with a speed sensor and a cadence sensor… so I can keep track of my fitness progress, currently it’s very out of shape.
The first trip with all this equipment was very good, but the cadence sensor was not active at the moment… so the only info available is:

Total distance: 53,7 km
Total time: 2:16:17
Average speed : 23,6 km/u
Average heart rate : 147 bpm
Calories : 1815 kcal


The latest route is one with the cadence sensor available, so there is a little bit more info now:

Total distance : 40,3 km
Total time : 1:31:40
Average speed : 26,4 km/u
Average heart rate : 149 bpm
Calories : 1250 kcal
Average cadence : 83 cadence


Sad news for the Martial Arts community – Mike Martello has passed away

All I can say is that I regret I didn’t spend more time with Sifu Mike!
I was only able to follow 2 training sessions and those sessions where intense. Mike seemed to have some supernatural powers, but all relates to his body structure and perfect muscle control. Not to mention his magnificent knowledge of Chin Na.

All I can say is that his passing is a great loss for the Martial Arts community, my thoughts go out to his family and friends.
