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. …

Simple Tips for Pain Prevention Empty Simple Tips for Pain Prevention

Post  Bonnie on Sun Jan 17, 2010 12:19 pm

It’s amazing how many ailments can be prevented with a few simple stretches and good posture. We take stretching lightly, yet tight muscles are often is the stem of many of our aches and pains. When muscles are tight, we tend to shift our posture to compensate or to become more comfortable. Over time we slowly evolve in to that elderly person bent over with a walker.

Who would guess that tight calves may cause heel pain or that tight hamstrings (the rear leg muscles) could be the reason for low back pain? That almost sounds too simple of a diagnosis, nevertheless stretches are almost always a part of every physical therapy patients treatment plan.

In addition, think of all the people who are walking around with neck pain and don’t give any thought to how we carry our eight pound head around. Of course when we think about the way we hang our head over all the time, it’s easy to understand how that could put a strain on our neck and back. Could improved posture really help?

It just seems we only really give these things serious thought after an injury or when the pain gets too much to bear. I’d like to encourage you to become more aggressive in getting the information you need now to improve the quality of the rest of your life. There is simply too much information to pass along to you in a few short paragraphs, but I can at least get you started and your interest peaked. scratch

1. Work on improving your posture. Yes, I said work. It’s not going to change overnight and will require a conscious effort at all times. Post notes at your desk, TV and even in your car to remind you to sit up straight. Eventually it will become natural.
2. Stretch your hamstrings. When someone has tight hamstrings they tend to tilt their pelvis under to relieve tension in the back of the legs. This immediately throws the back out of alignment. To properly stretch this area sit up nice and straight and gently lean forward without bending your back - do not bounce.
3. Strengthen your core. Strong core muscles help to splint the back which protects your back in case of a fall or accident. Your abdominal and back muscles act like the shocks in your car. They are designed to take blows a lot better than your rigid body parts.
4. Take a Yoga or Pilates class. If you don't know how to stretch, take a Yoga or Pilates class. You can even rent or buy a video to follow at home.
5. Never give up. Nobody cares about your health, or knows your body, as well as you do. Your health depends on your ability to effectively communicate with your health care and fitness professionals. Be patient and understand your progress may require some trial and error. The difference between success and failure can be one more try.
