Well Kane has kept me close to his bed side for the last few days grounding my workouts and runs.  However, starting tomorrow that can change.  While Kane still isn’t mobile he is a bit less whiny- no doubt because his pain is lessening as his body heals.  So with him able to allow me some personal time mor ethan three feet from his bed that means I have a lot of catching up to do since it is Tuesday and I have three resistance training session and at least three runs to fit into my schedule.  As a result I will do some doubling up.

My schedule for the next few days includes an early morning session of stretching:

Neck/Trapezius Stretch (seen to the left; do in all four directions); Wrist Stretch (seen to the left; do in two positions- palm facing body and knuckles facing body);Seated Hamstring Stretch; Bent-Knee Forward; Bridging; Pat the Back; Seated Side Straddle; Back Straight Leg Extension; Back Curl to Extension; Spinal Twist

Each stretch is done twice for 30-45 seconds each with a few seconds rest in between. (more…)

Guess what?! Your Wii Fit assessment will be used to track your goals for as long as you desire; the selectable goals range from two weeks to one year. The downside, the Wii fit (partially) uses BMI to gauge your relative health. But since the Wii also weighs you, just go ahead and ignore the BMI and go by your weight- and remember what I say about weight, it is only one indicator of your relative fitness and health. So with those limitations in mind, the Wii Fit still allows you an excellent way to track your progress since it acts as a scale, BMI calculator, and weight loss calculation/graphing tool.

It gets even better. (more…)
