The ones with the duck tape holding them together.. we use these for a few different things but most often we use them to "whack" each other as Terry says. You throw the ball at the other persons abs...learning how to take a punch to the body is part of the reasoning behind this...we usually do 3 3…Continue
There are 3 parts to the drill 3 rounds (2 or 3 min rounds depending on the trainer)

Its Christmas night and I am ready for the Holiday madness to end and normal life to resume.
Work has kept me busy for the past couple of months and my workouts have lacked the intensity that I am used to.
This week I was released from physical therapy. My therapist is confident that I have learned how to run "properly"
And has given me a plan for building up my miles again. I'm still boxing but you get out of it what you put in and I havent been putting enough in…Continue

Running in Oregon is amazing! I went on a 5 mile run yesterday. It was crisp and fresh. It was the most amazing run. I have been in the gym quite a bit, since it rains everyday in winter. It was a treat to have a great run day!

PS. The blog information is AMAZING!
Last night at the end of a little bit of our usual ribbing with a training partner I got thinking. We joke with each other about our weak areas and even our strong sport is because we do them to much and should focus on the weak ones, and so it goes. He said the other day he couldn’t ride with me because “us real triathletes train the swim and run in winter.” Now he was half if not mostly joking as he trains very consistently on the bike and is subsequently very fast on the bike.…Continue
Being relatively new at all of this, I'm not really sure what goes in a post-race recap. So I'll just be me and I'll just be brief.
I signed up for my first marathon and completed it! For a relatively new runner, it's a bit of an emotional issue when many people we are surrounded by ask --…Continue
Hi Everyone! I am a little new to this website, so bare with me! I am training to run my 4th marathon this May in Stroudsburg, PA in honor of those fighting MS. I am organizing this event and am already spreading the word to family and friends. Any support would be great...There is a full marathon, 2 legged marathon relay and 5k. Look at my page and become a member if you are interested. Keep running to "stop MS!"

In June 2003, Lloyd Scott set a new world record for the slowest marathon time by finishing the Edinburgh Marathon in six days, four hours, 30 minutes and 56 seconds - in a 130lb deep-sea diving suit. "It was a fantastic finish at the stadium," Scott recalled. "Everyone was on their feet clapping and we had a piper. It was a wonderful reception. I'm still on a bit of a high and I will probably still be on one tomorrow when I realise I don't have to get the suit on. Now I'm having a dram of…Continue
