Fitness: A Blog In Pictures

Recovery can happen in many ways…

Physical recovery doesn’t have to be P90X. Just as spiritual fitness doesn’t have to be found in The 12 Steps. Whatever works for you, find that, and do it.

There are many parallels between spiritual fitness and physical fitness. But don’t take my word for it—try it for yourself.

Get yet skates on.

Bamboo bikes are becoming more common. They're sturdy, lightweight, and cool.





Or get a Cannondale hybrid

Or find a Fisher—he's merged with Trek bikes, so if you want a real Fisher, you'll have to get one used. Cheaper, and great value. This is the bike I own (Utopia) and I can testify to its speed and versatility

Or try yoga: mats are cheap, and you can learn from a book or a DVD from the library.

There's also core work. Gunnar Peterson's Core Secrets, for example, is a reliable workout for beginners.

And then there's meditation. Sitting for long periods of time requires physical, mental and spiritual conditioning—it is a workout. I learned from Thich Nhat Hanh, Jon Kabat-Zinn, and Pema Chodron--all of whom sell books, CDs, tapes, and even DVDs in order to share their wisdom and experience. ... As they say, Don't just do something... sit there.

  1. I had a racing Cannondale that I loved. Great bicycle. Started the P90X yesterday. Great workout.
