• On happiness

    You get all kinds of happiness advice on the Internet from people who don’t know what they’re talking about. Don’t trust them.

    Actually, don’t trust me either. Trust neuroscientists. They study that gray blob in your head all day and have learned a lot about what truly will make you happy.

  • A quick read on returning to running after injury

    Approach your first run back with caution and don’t overdo it. Run for no more than 10 minutes to begin with. This may seem like a really short amount of time, but think of it as an assessment of your recovery and a gentle reintroduction to running.

  • SI Joint

    Anyone who has suffered from SIJ pain knows that it can be a real pain – in the back, in the hip, and even down the leg. It can make day-to-day activities such as rolling over or getting in and out of a car difficult, and it can lead to pain while training if you’re not in tune with how to exercise properly without further injuring your SIJ.

  • Guide to lifting


    •  Try not to lift too suddenly.  Think about it before you do it and plan the most efficient way of doing it.
    • Try a little test lift to get the “feel” of what you’re lifting.
    • Keep your back straight or a little flexed when you lift as far as you can – not too flexed and not too lordotic either.  You need the ‘Goldilocks’ position – that’s ‘just-right’ somewhere in between!  This needs practice, most people haven’t a clue where this is, but some fall into it naturally.
