Three Things Thursday

Once again I don’t have a ton of time to post due to my two classes that end next Friday! Time to get all that homework done, but here are a few interesting and maybe not so interesting tidbits currently going on.

1. I have about 5,000 different blog posts all written in my head. I plan on writing and/or finishing writing the ones I started and get them posted here. I have been finding a bunch of interesting articles and factoids that have perked my interest so hopefully I’ll be doing some researching and forming some opinions on the matter here.

2. This is one of the interesting things I plan on writing about. I found it today on Trainer Thought of the Day. Personally, I don’t believe it, but I’m definitely going to set up my own experiment and test the hypothesis. Anyone want to make some predictions?

This is a science fair project presented by a girl in a secondary school in Sussex. In it she took filtered water and divided it into two parts. The first part she heated to boiling in a pan on the stove, and the second part she heated to boiling in a microwave. Then after cooling she used the water to water two identical plants to see if there would be any difference in the growth between the normal boiled water and the water boiled in a microwave. She was thinking that the structure or energy of the water may be compromised by microwave. As it turned out, even she was amazed at the difference, after the experiment which was repeated by her classmates a number of times and had the same result.

3. Training is going well. I’m in recovery week, which I don’t like. I get very antsy by the end of the week, but I fully understand the importance of recovery weeks in any annual training plan (ATP). Today is a rest day and I’m getting a massage! Wahoo!

Happy Training!
