    I'm haven't thrown in the towel yet.

    In fact, after yet another 2 miles in my ancient shoes this morning, I made certain to get my *** to a shoe store today.

    Turns out they were doing a buy 1 - get 1 1/2 off deal, so I got these kicks for the walking times and a new pair of pretty much plain white reeboks for regular living.

    Good call on those New Balances too. They might just be the best fitting shoes I've ever had. Of course, it took the tiny little sales girl almost 20 minutes to find a 13-wide in the back for me. I think my foot was bigger than her leg.

    Plank exercises. Seriously. There's a great circuit routine that everybody should do:

    1. Plank x 30 seconds.
    2. Side plank x 30 seconds left and right.
    3. Slow, incline mountain climbers x 30 seconds.
    4. Rest 60 seconds.
    5. Repeat circuit once.

    I typically do that as a cool down after a work out. If you have back pain, this is so damn good for you. It's completely non-impact, unlike a lot of sit up routines. And don't focus on going past 30 seconds. Work more on keeping your abdominal muscles tight throughout the 30 seconds. If you want to make the 30 seconds more intense, you can alter the position of your arms/hands, elevate your feet.


    I heard you were looking for me.

    Could you describe what a plank excercise is?

    1. Picture a push-up position, lie face down on the floor, resting on your forearms, palms flat.
    2. Raise up onto your toes so that your body is supported by your toes and elbows. Your back should be flat, in a straight line from head to heels. Your upper arms should be perpendicular to the floor, meaning that your elbows are beneath your shoulders.
    3. Contract your abdominals and prevent your @$$ from sticking up or sagging in the middle.
    4. Hold. Don't forget to breathe.

    It's a stationary exercise/yoga posture.

    Here's a link with some small images. Scroll down for a description of side planks.

    And don't go crazy with the reps/time limit. It isn't necessary. 2 x 30 seconds is solid, especially if you do it as a circuit.

    To expand on this, plank push ups are really good too.

    And for you push up enthusiasts who really want a challenge, try this.
