Weather: Stunt run!

Back to cold temperatures, and I’m still enjoying it. Here is the warning from the weather app on my phone.

Shortness of breath, chest pain, muscle pain and weakness, numbness and colour changes make it sound almost unpleasant

Once again, below 9 beats per meter.

I didn’t have most of the warning symptoms, but I did get a pretty cold left big toe. Cut my run a bit early because of it. Skipped Niven Lake Trail and Stock Lake Trail.

The ice buildup at the Coop skidoo trail is possibly growing. The ice buildup on my face is CERTAINLY growing. I am getting to like the feel of heavy ice on my eyelashes. Enjoying the feeling of my cheeks cracking through the ice buildup at the edge of my face cover.

I could do this all winter 🙂

Training Tip: Free workout program – 5BX

In the 50’s and 60’s, the Royal Canadian Air Force needed a fitness program to deliver to their staff. Many of these people were in remote locations with limited access to trainers, facilities and team sports.

This guide is full of great cartoons and better advice

With the resources of a government defense mandate, they created this program, with Norman Ashton, who later went on to change the field of biomechanics. In fact, the word didn’t exist before his work in the field.

5BX is a simple program, which you perform in just over ten minutes a day.

When you can complete the first chart of exercises, within the allotted time, you graduate to the next chart.

I honestly don’t know of anyone who would need a chart beyond chart 6. The demands on it are such that I think no-one could exceed them.

At the other end of this program, it is perfectly suited to use with small children or elders.

One of the real benefits of this program, is that you don’t need any help at all. If you don’t want to go to the gym, or ask around, you can still gain a high level of fitness on your own, in a short time daily, and relatively safe from injury. (a lot safer than many sports – like running)
