    gear up

    Dear teachers,



    Would you tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentences?
    As elections loom, Russian opposition gears up for fight

    gear up = accelerate; make ready for

    I only feel geared up for work in the mornings.

    He geared himself up for the interview.

    Thank you for your efforts.


    Regards,


    V.
