Gratitude Week: Fitness helps when things go a little nuts.

Nuts. Those really happen sometimes. Short post today as we’re on the move: Just enough time to mention a second fitness gratitude during this Thanksgiving week. Moving often, being fit, doing the best we can to fit exercise in at least once every 48 hours of our life keeps our heads in gear. There’s a reason…

Gratitude Week: The unseen benefits of fitness

It’s Thanksgiving Week. Of course we’re talking about gratitude this week at Every48. Let’s dive in. Here we go: What’s amazing about making the commitment to a regular exercise routine is that there are many, many benefits. Some are the benefits we can see (sometimes) after a few weeks or months of consistent exercise. Maybe…

Meme Week Monday: Where strength really comes from.

[Every48.com will be on hiatus this week while I’m cooking up some new content for the holiday season. This week I’ll feature a favorite “fitness meme of the week” post every day from the collection of memes on Every48.com.

Throwback Thursday: The Zen Run Redux

“Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh……..” Some days, you just want to exhale. Today is one of those days for me. Enjoy this throwback post from February that describes one of my favorite workouts for the days when you just need to move but can’t quite figure out what to do, or how to get going. The quick answer: let…

Monday “What Went Well”: Philosophically speaking.

Some weeks at Every48 are “business as usual” weeks. There’s stuff to do. Stuff gets done. And most days of the week, a workout gets squeezed in there somewhere. A to-do checklist, if you will. But sometimes, the deeper questions start to bubble up. Questions like, what’s really going on when we make commitments to…

Tuesday Workout of the Week: Brain Power

So it’s a little slow going here at Every48 due to a slightly unfortunate training accident on Sunday. I must say, my skinned knees would make any hard-core rugby player proud, and there might just be a bottle or two of ibuprofen that gets noshed in the next week or so around here (anti-inflammatories). But…

The New Normal, Part 2: Mining, and Mourning, the “Lost Years”

Yesterday I wrote about a great race this past weekend in Victoria, B.C., where I basically solidified the notion in my head that I now have a “new normal” when it comes to fitness and health. It used to be that something like a two-hour half-marathon was a pipe dream. Then after good training and…
