Hey guys many of you know that I have been a Runner for a large part of my Life. Well, actually since I was old enough to barely tie my shoes. My next door neighbor and my Dad got me into Running which gradually evolved in Road Racing and in particular 10Ks. For those of you who may not know 10Ks are 6.2 miles long. And I have been competing in them for over 3 decades now !!

I have always enjoyed the freedom and flexibility of just slipping on my running shoes and cranking out a 5 miler around my neighborhood. The thrill of  getting a great sweat and a good cardivascular workout has never left me as each week I look forward to getting out and hitting the pavement.

Ah, the pavement. Here in lies the problem with running. As much as there is positive effects running long distances have there are some drawbacks particular if you run on pavement. I  have been running on roads for many years now, and it can cause many joint problems that affect your knees, ankles, legs, achilles tendon, feet, back and more. I have been fairly lucky to have an occassional achilles tendon flair up. But the past few years it has stabilized. Others around me including that neighbor who got me starting in running, my dad, my father in law and other professional road racers have not been so fortunate.

The fact of the matter is if you constantly run on pavement over a period of years you will see some detreriation in your joints , back, or feet. The pounding with each step on asphalt will evetually wreak havoc on your body parts.

Thats why I am really concentrating on running on dirt paths, tracks and doing other cardivascular exercises like Swimming, hiking, and Biking.

The next half of 2010 I plan to really take this to a new level and start weening myself off running on pavement. Fortunately, I have escaped many injuries because my natural running style does not involve a high up and down movement of my trunk with each step that pounds on the pavement. Thus I do not have a lot of force coming down hard on the roads with each stride !!

IF some of you do wish to  continue making road running your major source of exercise I highly encourage to adopt a style where you will NOT pound your legs hard on the pavement.

Picture how a chicken runs and try to emulate that !!  Sounds silly but honestly that mental image should give you an idea what I mean !! ;)

Hey guys, I just want to talk briefly today about Goals and about Motivation in being a  healthier and slimmer person.

We all know it is important to eat healthy , exercise regularly and keep the body fat down to a minimum. But I also want to convey to people that there is a point where you need to not be obsessive about trying to do this.

The reason I bring this up is that I see many, many  people who do actually become obsessive about losing weight and take it to a degree where it becomes totally unhealthy. Some of these people will start doing desperate things like taking weight loss pills or exercising to a level that is way too excessive. Excessive exercise can lead to injuries and cause psycholgical problems which can can even lead to more obesity and other health problems.

Also, I have seen people who become some obsessive that when they do not see immediate results with their weight loss they just throw up their hands and give up out of frustration. Well, when this happens the consequences can be grim. They can revert back in the opposite direction and start eating everything in sight and start packing on the pounds. Before they know it they are at a weight they have NEVER been before. And they become morbidly obese.

I just want to encourage  you guys to have some positive motivation in wanting to get healthy and wanting to  get lean and mean. I always tell people who are looking for some help to look at losing weight and getting healthy as a Marathon and NOT a Sprint. Remember, guys this is a long term endeavour that will be ongoing for the rest of your Life. So treat it as this and dont feel too anxious to try to melt off the pounds. Educate yourself and pace yourself in a manner that you will continue to live a healthy and active Lifestyle for many, many years !!

The key as I have constantly said before is make your healthy and active Life MANAGEABLE for decades !!

Well after 3 weeks of being in Tennessee visiting family and friends and running my annual 10K run, I am back home !! I had a great time and my time was pretty good. I had a goal to be a minute or so faster but I finished pretty strong and am happy to finish for the 33rd year in a row.

After the 10K I took off about a week. But on Monday and last night I completed 2 runs of about 4 miles each. I have started somewhat of a different exercise  regimen this week. I have two young children that I take care of and with the Summer here in the Desert it is just too hot to run in the Morning or day. So starting this past Monday I have been running at night when my two little girls have gone to sleep. At first I was leery of doing this but these last two runs at night have been really pleasant. I wear a reflective piece of garment which makes me more at ease when running on the streets at night. Its still hot on the nightly runs but it is tolerable. Its kind of funny because these runs remind when I was a teenager and running at night on the Beachon family vacations. It has really brought back great memories !! :)

Anyway, today I actually did something a little different. My wife’s good friend came over so I got a free ticket to go out and do anything I wanted. So I went and did an activity that I do not get a chance to do much. Its called Disc Golf and I love this Sport. Its great exercise and you play it like regular golf except you use these special frisbees and you throw them into chained baskets. Its really cool ,and I had a blast and got a good sweat out of it. I hope I get more opportunities to do this !

This evening the weather was nice so my wife and daughters went on a walk in the desert canyon here where we live. We took a walk of about 50 minutes at a brisk pace. So this along with the Disc Golf made it a great day for exercise.

Im tired so I am heading to bed now. One last thing : Keeping in shape and keeping the weight off can be hard work, no doubt. The thing is if you can find an exercise that you really enjoy or one that you can enjoy with a loved one, then you are well on your way to a long term healthy and satisfying Life.

So keep on keeping on ! ;)
