Every fall , it's the same story. We all have the sudden stress of "getting in shape for ski season". One month before ski season, we crank out a few hundred squats and lunges hoping to dissipate the intense lactic acid come our first few runs. Sure, it helps but what if there was a totally different way to approach our ski fitness which would go well beyond our first winter turns?
Yes, Here it is.
First, look at each month like a block of training. It will give you steps…Continue

Recently I heard a commencement speech from Tim Minchin. Now whether or not you are famliar with Tim or even approve of his humor, he had some incredible insight which has left me thinking.

Unlike earlier posts where I was writing from the vantage point of being healthy and strong, today I am starting at square one.
Something I've always known, but what…Continue

The white blanket of winter is gone and yet some of us might still be hanging on to our proverbial winter layer.

BABY STEPS.
