Up until yesterday, i thought of the gym as strength exercises and core exercises.
Charles, a personal trainer about my age, observed a few of the things i was doing and this ultimately ended with me getting schooled.
What if every exercise is a core exercise?
It should be.
And thanks to Charles, i’m ready to .think .differently about core.
On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.
This website is about our physical health. To easily and safely leave this site to read today’s post on jeff’s spiritual health website, click here.

The night before, i was all excited about running in the morning. But when the morning came yesterday, it was really humid, and i just wasn’t feeling it, blah, blah, blah. Plus the time pressure of having an early High School tour.
But then, a runner. He unexpectedly came from behind and passed me as i finished the first warmup mile and stopped to stretch.
He was several hundred meters ahead when the stretching was done and i decided to see if i could catch him – slow and steady of course.
While the 6:06 split was nice, i had this crazy notion of trying a second attempt to go sub-six minutes. Had never attempted it because i thought it was impossible.
