Nothing Can Stop Me!
Many people have contacted me recently to ask how my preparations for the Marathon in February are coming along...

Well, they're not!

I actually threw a major spanner in the works about 5 weeks ago by breaking my foot at kickboxing.

I continued trying to run on it for 2 weeks before I finally conceded that it was broken and that I really needed to rest it.

Although I'm bummed about the marathon this has forced me to get back into other forms of training. No broken foot will stop me from exercising daily!

I've been doing some great body-weight workouts including some funky push-ups such as Bear and Scorpion push-ups (I'll post a video of these very soon), these push-ups really challenge the entire body and are great for developing a lean flexible and strong body. Most importantly they develop a strong core and flexible spine. Remember a large part of your age is defined by how stiff and tight you are - a flexible spine will keep you feeling young and vibrant.

I'm starting to run again today and I'll do the Gate River Run here in Jacksonville in March and start back at Kickboxing next week.

Until next time,
Cheers, to your health
