Flexibility

Flexibility  ( the quality or state of being able to be flexed or bent repeatedly). Bend repeatedly,ouch! We know that it's alright to stretch warm ligaments. But, do we need to embark upon a stretching routine? The answer is no and here's why. Stretching repeatedly strains your ligaments. In other words, the ligaments can become loose and cause injuries. The best way to gain flexibility is to strenghten your muscles.  Just think, strong, well hydrated muscles.You will bend, but not break.


Train right and train often!  Until next time, Stay Safe.

Rain Drops Keep Falling On My Head

Just started to rain. You know what kind of shower I'm talking about. A light summer rain. No thunder, No lightning . Just a continuous cascade of cool rain drops. For me, it's a great time to go for a run. No need for rain gear. Just my running shorts and cap. Shirt, sometimes. Just love the rain drops falling on my head.

Go on try it!  Until next time, stay safe.

Sole Searching

With so many types of running shoes on the market today, how do you choose the best ones? Well, that my friend is probably best done by trial and error. Experiment with different brands until you find magic. It can be done. Just remember to choose the ones that compliment your running style. Also keep in mind the surface you run on and your total mileage. I'm going to let you in on a little secret. All  running shoes have something in common, cheap insoles. No time and money spent on those I tell you. Now is the time to do some sole searching. Let me help you with that. Listen closely. Carry yourself to your local running store and buy some new insoles. Get some new socks while you're at it. If you want the best, pick up a pair of SofSole insoles and some SofSole running socks. They will make almost any brand of running shoe ride heavenly. And while you're at it, remember to pick up an extra pair.You won't be sorry.

Now go take a ride on the Cushioned Side! Stay safe. See you next time.
