To Maximize Benefits, Get on the Circuit

By NANCY COLE

December 6, 2004

We all need a combination of strength, cardiovascular and flexibility training to be fit. You can cover all of your bases through integrated, functional strength training, where you work multiple muscles simultaneously, while challenging your balance to target your core -- the powerhouse of your body.

Testing four hydration systems

BY SHERRY STRIPLING

The Seattle Times

My old sports editor used the adage, "Horses sweat, men perspire, women merely glow."

I glowed through a few marathons in the 1980s, but in those days, we didn't carry water with us when we trained.

The current running boom is different. Many runners now tote their own.

I asked other runners and a sports-medicine doc for thoughts on how technology has kept up with greater understanding of the need to keep hydrated. Then I tested four popular styles of hydration systems - the hand-held, single-bottle waist belt, multiple-bottle waist belt and backpack reservoir - to compare comfort and cost. Different companies make versions of the styles below, so shop around for prices that work for you once you decide on a style.

Each of the systems below has its oddities and fans. But it took me no time to appreciate having water along. First, some facts about the need to drink water:

GETTING FIT: Gifts that are truly fit for giving

Shane Speer

Dec 1, 2004

It's that time of year again when you start wondering what to give everyone for the holidays.

This year, think of a present that will have healthful benefits long after New Year's resolutions fade: Give the gift of fitness.

Sound uninspiring? It doesn't have to be. You can find goodies for your friends, spouse, kids or co-workers, whatever their exercise background or sports interests. Who doesn't want to look and feel better and be healthier?

And fitness gifts don't have to be expensive. They can set you back a mere $10 or a lot more, depending on what you're willing to spend. Some suggestions in a few price ranges:

Running Right

10 tips for avoiding injury from a champion miler and a top coach.

It was near the end of our 30-minute conversation on running when I asked Steve Scott about his time in the mile. Twelve years ago, he covered the distance in 3:47.6, and that is still the American record.

I told him that I wished I could run that fast, and he laughed and responded: "So do I."

The difference, of course, is that while Scott notched sub four- minute miles a record 136 times in his prime, I couldn't have run at that pace if a grizzly was chasing me.

But now Steve and I are traveling across common ground, if not at the same speed. He's 48, the greatest miler in U.S. history and the head cross-country coach at CaI State San Marcos. I'm 41, a guy who walks out the door three or four times a week, does a perfunctory calf stretch, then punishes the pavement for 30 minutes doing more huffing and puffing than you can possibly imagine.

Striding at opposite ends of the running spectrum, though, it seems we both have discovered the same thing: preventative maintenance is essential to fending off the pesky aches and pains that become more persistent as the years tick away.

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what's the best workout routine of all?

BY NANCY COLE

Knight Ridder Newspapers

Mirror, mirror on the wall, what's the best workout routine of all?

The body staring back at you has the answer. Reflect on it. Know your goals and discover what workouts work for you. The best workout is the one that you'll enjoy and consistently perform.

And your routine -- well, it shouldn't be routine at all, but should change on a regular basis. We seem to start out with extrinsic motivation -- looking good -- yet we stick to our fitness regimes for intrinsic reasons -- feeling good.
