Salvere Blog: What’s in Your Toolbox?

February 19, 2018


by Salvere Health and Fitness

Continuing the theme of last blog, what’s in your “movement options toolbox”? Meaning, when your “normal routine” gets thrown off, what do you do when you need to modify what you planned?

If we think outside the “box” when it comes to exercise to include any type of movement. Some ideas for your toolbox include:

— Short on time, create a list of some things you want to feel better doing like stretching, balance or some floor work?

— Not time to get to the gym, what can you do at home? Go old school: jumping jacks, side shuffle, squats, wall sits, dips, planks

— Not feeling that run? Call a friend and go for an outdoor adventure, take pictures, find random things, be aware of your surroundings

— When’s the last time you danced or did something with child like freedom? No time like the present!!!

The Event a Month Journey

December 16, 2010

This year started with a personal goal of one event per month for the entire year.  Looking forward to this journey, I mapped out a few events and started the planning process.  January, great event… The Frozen Finger Five Miler — More like the frozen snot event but COLD none the less.  Then February came and things started what felt like a down hill fall… The blizzards came first so no event.  March started with two events planned, then came the innocent basketball game and a severely sprained ankle!  My first injury EVER and the test of mental toughness began.

Here we are in December… thirteen events total for the year!!!!  Including two half ironman bike legs (thats 56 miles), a duathlon (run bike run), a half marathon (13.1 miles), a relay marathon (7 miles), several 5 milers and numerous 5K’s.  While the injury made it’s presence known several times throughout the year, the process came with many lessons.  It challenged my competitiveness, taught me to sit still for a few minutes, helped me learn to modify my goals based on life and that I could accomplish what I set my mind on.

Challenge yourself!!
