This is so good- simple, clear and honest. " a genuine emergency, many of these obstacles would simply be bypassed for the sake of time." I don't know if I totally agree with the B-to-A part, but it's a good thing to think about, esp when considering drops and gaps.

the running isnt even the hardest though. its the repititive squat/lunge plyometric movements that destroy any sort of endurance i have. smaller movements, less wasted leg energy, focus on total body compound movement (more arm swing/landing control=less leg tiredness).

its a wrestlers type endurance where you are constantly resisting and pushing forcefully, but you have to survive the whole 6 (or 7 if ur OT) minutes without collapsing.
You have to be able to KEEP running/tracing away until you are actually away. not just over that first rooftop, set of rails, wall run, gap jump, staircase, hallway, level of parking garage. its just going going going going. very few if any practicing traceurs an accomplish this mentality to such an extreme extent.

this weeks trial: sprint/run in and out of everything atleast 15 ft. . i feel i have most of my moves down in the "three step" range. i have a harder time linking nowadays (faster, higher, more momentum). Lets slow it (speed,power,height) down on purpose once or twice and keep it long (sloats endless roof run loop) just jogging and keeping the flow of momentum. yeah imma do it...
