Great idea, Rocky, thank you. Sun in Barbados sounds like something I could try to work into my practice!
I agree with what you say, intensity is still possible for shorter duration, and recovery is longer. And, yes, flexibility in knee, hip and shoulder is something I can relate to. Do you have any specific exercises or do you simply pay more attention to the areas as you warm up. I've also found that some light strength training is doing me good, maybe i was getting too relaxed/lazy
I'm a tad jealous visualizing you guys training in the sun prior to a quick dip in the ocean to cool off.
all the best, Alec
