Not Quite Boot Camp

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:14 pm by Drew

I don't know that anyone will read this, but I'm going to say it anyway...

Starting Sunday, I'm getting off my butt and doing what I'm supposed to. For the past three weeks, I've been getting up early and going to the gym, but I haven't followed it up with cardio and diet. (Cardio - no excuse. Diet - its been a bit hectic)

So I'm making a public commitment to do better for at least the next …

Come Run With Us

Fri Jan 15, 2010 7:54 pm by Drew

Marcus and I did the Walt Disney World half marathon on January 9. We both had done a half marathon before, but never in such a large group.

The run was great. It started outside EPCOT, ran over Disney roads, then through the Magic Kingdom (including running through Cinderella's castle), and back to EPCOT.

While it was fun, it would have been better in two ways: 1. not be so stinking cold …

Boot Camp is Over. Now What?

Fri Apr 09, 2010 3:53 pm by Drew

One of the worst things about boot camp is when it ends. Yes, it is wonderful to not have people yelling at you to "Hold Plank!!" for an hour, but what do you do after that in order to not lose the progress you made?

Let's get some ideas, people!

A Shot of Motivation for those in need

Fri Apr 09, 2010 5:04 pm by Drew

A couple thoughts to motivate you in the hard times.

If you quit when things get hard, you will never realize exactly what you can do and how far you can go.

The saying goes "Pain is weakness leaving the body." I'd like to add that pain is also a way to remember that you were built for more than eating and sitting. I remember some of the days that were the hardest and I HATED …

Confession Corner

Fri Apr 09, 2010 4:01 pm by Drew

Okay, so I did boot camp last year. Three of them, in fact. Since then... let's just say I fell off the wagon and haven't tried to catch it till recently.

I went from 270 (1/09) to 237 (8/09), mostly because of boot camp. However, after August, I have done very little, except run occassionally. I'm back around 255. I CONFESS!!

I know that I am not the only one. Someone else 'fess up. …

Dealing with knee pain

Post  Bonnie on Sun Jan 17, 2010 12:14 pm

Knee pain is one of the most common problems boot campers experience due to all the running, jumping, lunging and squatting. Here is an article I wrote on knee pain that I think will be very helpful. Smile


[b]A simple fix for knee pain


There’s nothing like a little knee pain to make you feel old and out of shape. Ironically, it is normally when you are trying to get in shape that you discover these little annoyances.

A couple of years ago I started jogging again. At least, that was the goal. I quickly discovered my body wasn’t ready for a jogging routine and much preferred a brisk walk. I had never felt that out of shape before.

Although I was lifting weights and occasionally doing the stepper or elliptical, my body wasn’t used to jogging and it let me know it quick! My hip ached, my knees throbbed, and my muscles were incredibly sore.

Even though most of my body adapted to the new routine eventually, my knees took a little longer to improve. Believe it or not, it was a simple fix – all I needed to do was stretch.

I am sure this may sound odd to some people. I mean, what in the world could stretching a muscle do for a joint? Well, plenty! You see, my leg muscles were really tight, especially my quadriceps (thigh muscles). Since these tight muscles attach to the patella (the knee cap) tight muscles were most likely the cause of my discomfort.

If you gently stretch the leg muscles, you relieve the tension on the knee cap allowing for proper tracking. The only drawback is you have to be patient and consistent with your stretching routine. You can’t expect your muscles to loosen up after just a few stretches. With increased activity comes increase tightness so it’s something you have to do often.

I had to stretch several times a day. I even would stop and stretch in the middle of my jog to help get me through my routine. Eventually, my knee pain completely went away. My two miles of limping turned into a four and half mile pain-free jog thanks to a few simple stretches.

While there are many reasons for knee pain, tight leg muscles are often the culprit especially if you just started noticing it after increasing activity. Unfortunately, many people quit an exercise program due to aches and pains discovered after beginning their new routine. Just keep in mind the solution maybe easier than you think.
