General Health and Fitness


I’ve seen a LOT in my more than 20-years as a professional coach.

Among those are the many aspects that we ALL collectively and individually struggle with sometimes. You’re not alone, that’s for sure. 

Trying to build fitness while nursing an injury? Think again. 

There are a host of positive things you CAN do while recovering from injury – improving run fitness isn’t one of them.

Progressive Overload: One important key to long term success.

Little by little, inch by inch. Small tiny improvements add up to big long-term results!


Do….or don’t do. It’s up to you. 

The choice is always yours as to how you want to proceed. The question becomes…is your long term health and happiness worth it? And then answer is always, absolutely it is! 

Overcoming chronic injury isn’t ever easy. But there is ALWAYS hope!

Getting through the initial steps and making the choice to feel better. And then taking action, that’s the key. There is always hope! 

Maintaining “balance” is one of those things that some say, can’t be done, IF you want to be great.

I say, it’s incredibly important to make it happen, EVEN IF you want to be great. Think about it. 

As we age, taking a little bit of extra time to pay closer attention to our feet, is very smart!

After all, when the feet struggle, everything above them is also likely to struggle! 

Here’s a few tips from an aging runner and coach! 🙂

Think!….about how you’re moving.  

Our daily movement “habits” can either help us improve or contribute to our gradual degradation…the choice is ours!

Looking forward to retiring?

We seek comfort – forgetting that our body thrives on physical stress. 

Ever see the movie Shawshank Redemption, written by Stephen King of all people? 🙂 

Here’s your quote of the day, from Andy Dufresne: “Get busy living or get busy dying…” 

The emotional pain of injury.

When we are dealing with an injury, it can be as emotionally challenging as it can be physically challenging. While that can be difficult to accept, it is normal to struggle on many levels. Running is important to so many of us!  Accept it, be kind to yourself, and find the best path to return to your best self!

Toe care for the runner whos aging and has plenty of miles on the chassis.  

The little daily habits we can create that help soothe and care for the bits and pieces that take a lot of abuse, can make a world of difference over the long haul!

It’s cliche’ but true!

“You only ever grow as a human being if you’re outside your comfort zone.”

– Percy Cerutty, famous Australian running coach of the 1950’s and 60’s
