Default Stress and Stressors

A good little write up on Alwyn Cosgrove's Blog on Stress, stressors and the impact on training. Posted on 2/22.

"And for crying out loud. Don't go into the pain cave. I can't stress this enough. Your Totem Animal won't be in there to help you. You'll be on your own. The Pain Cave is for cowards.
Pain is your companion, don't go hide from it."
-Kelly Starrett

Really, really good stuff. I think this is one of the strength of CrossFit type high intensity intervals, ross's work etc. Enough exercise to keep metabolism cranking, tissue turning over etc. AND modulation of the adrenal cortical response. Absolutely no doubt this type of training down regulates the stress response in these other life situation cosgrove alludes to.

Great article. I hadn't seen Cosgrove's blog before...it's now feeding into my Google Reader. Along with way too many other feeds.
