Comment of the Week 7.27.12

This is what we do when we read your awesome comments! Image via psxextreme.com

Another Salty week in the books and boy was it a good one! Lots of great comments to choose from and it was actually a horse race this week. We had a hard time deciding, but in the end one comment stood out above the rest. Are you ready to find out which comment it was?

*Totally annoying and overly dramatic and  completely unnecessary commercial break*

This week’s COTW comes to us from Candy, who shared her insight on Mint’s post about core work:

Yoga is one of my favorite ways to stretch, Mint, but also to build strength. Rodney Yee has an excellent video called Core Cross Train (http://www.amazon.com/Yoga-Cross-Train-Rodney-Yee/dp/B000YV1L44). The 30-minute Core Strength segment is basic enough for those who are new to yoga but enough of a workout that you know it’s doing some good. Plus, Rodney has some very nice abs himself, a soothing voice, and always chooses workout venues that make you feel that you’re on vacation somewhere. If someone hasn’t been exercising the core, this is a great way to “move into it slowly” as you recommend.

Candy is a masters runner and writes for her own blog, Running Sweet.  When notified of her impending glory, Candy was thrilled!

I’m glad the post was helpful. I’m sixty years old and have been running since May when my daughter invited me to join her group in signing up for the Nike Women’s Half Marathon in October. It’s been about forty-five years since I’ve run but it is quickly becoming my passion. It feels wonderful to be outdoors and moving in a way that I never dreamed I’d be able to do again. Last week my long run was eight miles and tomorrow morning I’ll be running nine.

With so many strong women runners who share their knowledge and their enthusiasm online, I never feel that I am doing this alone. Thanks, Salty Running Bloggers, for setting the pace for the rest of us!

Thank you, Candy!

Cinnamon made Salty Running, takes lots of pictures and drinks lots of coffee. She has 8 more minutes to knock off her marathon for a 3:40 BQ, and will get there or die trying. Her writing is an eclectic mix of finding wholeness as an average runner, news reporting, curious reactions, satirical humor and more.

  1. Loved your post, Greg. You gave us all a lot to think about! And by the way, I zipped through the Kindle sample of your book and decided that I definitely needed the rest of the story. Downloading it now! I look forward to adding my voice to your book reviews on Amazon.

  2. Candy – I appreciated your insights/comments and it so great to know more about you! Best wishes to you on your return to running and half marathon training!
