Good day UND! Looking like a great day today right now we are setting at 59 and looking for a high of 83!
Today the Running show has a special guest *Patrick Marcoe* “cheers” *********************!
Pat come on down.
“Welcome to the show Pat”
“Great to be here Lynn.”
“Pat is a employee at the UND Well center, he has been here for many years he is the Coordinator of RecSports
& Special Events. Do you mind if I call you Pat?”
“Not at all Lynn.”
“Today’s topic is professional football. Pat, I understand you are a Green Bay Packers fan.”
“Yes Lynn that’s right, go Pack!”
“Pat most people here in Grand Forks are Minn. Vikings fans I am, sire you get a lot of boos an hiss’s, how dose that make you feel?”
“Well Lynn I just go out there every day, I give it 110 present I play good I want to play good I think I played perty good today.”
” Pat I was talking to some of the players on the field and they tell me they wear polyester jerseys. I think they would be happer in cotton. See cotton is a natural fiber. Imagine YOUR team playing in a hot sweaty game. The Pack are going to be more comfortable, cooler and that’s why they play better.”
“You may have something here Lynn.”
And that’s all we have for today’s show!

Good day UND! We are looking at a lovely day with a high of 81 and a low of 56. July is coming to a close so make it a good one.

The must see movies in July are, The starting line up in order:
1. Dawn of the Planet of the Apes – Apes kickin ***! Very cool
2. Hercules - “Gods and demons the classic battle of good and evil.”
3. Transformers Age of Extinction – “Transformers robots in disguise, Transformers more than meets the eyes, the special effects will blow your mind.”
4. Lucy - “Lucy in the sky with diamonds, A woman is accidentally caught in a dark deal, turns the tables on her captors and transforms into a merciless warrior evolved beyond human logic.” How cool is that?
5.Get On Up - “Yea I feel Good ! The god farther of soul James Brown on the big screen, its time to get your grove on.”
6. Planes: Fire & Rescue – “Hold on to your seats, now your flying the friendly skies!”
7. Guardians of the Galaxy- “Its time to get locked into a world of comic fantasy, cool charters with a wild story.”
Enjoy these great movies and have a great rest of July.
For almost 19 years, I’ve been working on my body. I’ve lost and maintained a 100 pound loss with the help of healthy eating, exercise, and endless support from loved ones.
I’m not sure that I’ve ever fully processed what I accomplished, and truthfully I don’t know that I ever well, either. The truth is, when you have a lot to lose, the mental side of weight loss feels more challenging than the physical… at least most days.
My loose skin will never allow me to sport a “tight, toned” anything. And sometimes I’m OK with that, despite the fact that so much of the media out there tells me that I need to take care of that problem- there’s a pill/exercise/program/surgery for that. I’d be lying if I told you I haven’t seriously considered some of these options. I always imagined that when I reached my “goal weight,” I’d finally be just like all the others- skinny, tan, perfect hair, clear skin, and a fast metabolism…
I hate to tell you this, but it doesn’t ALWAYS work out that way. I’ve been told 1000+ times to lift weights so my skin will firm. To do crunches so I will finally have abs.
And I’ve tried, to no avail. To be honest, lifting weight and crunches haven’t ever been attractive to me. I’ve given them their fair shot, and they still make my workout routine on a yearly basis, but I find myself bored and unable to stick with it. I like my walking and elliptical time- and if there’s one thing I’ve learned about exercising, it’s that I MUST listen to my body/mind when I’m struggling to get into any sort of exercise. If you’re stuck, I encourage you to find what you enjoy and go with that- it’ll keep you going much stronger/longer. Some people like to torture themselves with exercise… but that’s just not for me.
I used to apologize for my routine, but I’m realizing more and more that the best thing to hear is : You’re doing it right. You are moving, so you are doing it right. Change when you’re ready, but for now love what you do and most importantly… love YOU!
Good morning UND! We are looking at a sunny day with a high of 78.
The movie of the week: Hercules – This thriller movie will be a vary cool to watch on the big screen action packed and special effect that will blow your mind.
The Running show is prod to bring you: “Stories that will blow your mind!”
‘Waiting for the cable guy’
Last week I call the cable guy, he says, “ill meet you at you home around 11….. or 1….. or 2…… or 3.”
After waiting around for hours, he finally shows up…. dragging mud all over my clean floors. Surprise no apology. Do you ever expect great service somewhere and don’t get it? What do you do to stay positive? Comment below!
Swim a Lap Day
When : June 24th
Swim a Lap Day is good for your health. And, it’s a fun day, too!
It’s time to enjoy all that summer has to offer, including plenty of time in and around the pool. What better way to enjoy the early days of summer, than by taking a lap or two (or three) around the pool. In addition to the fun, it’s great exercise to help keep you fit!
Have a great day!
One of the questions I get asked most often as a Personal Trainer is whether stretching is good before or after a workout. I recently came across an article in the May 2013 IDEA Fitness Journal entitled “Stretching’s Impact on Strength.” You can interpret the conclusion as you wish, but I thought I’d share the research so you can make an educated decision about your workout and get the most out of your strength gains with a stretching session PRE-workout (it does not examine the post workout stretch at all).
To stretch or not to stretch for improved strength is a question that endures. Some support the practice; others don’t. A new study may have put the debate to rest.
Published in the Journal of Strength & Conditioning Research (2012; doi: 10.1519/JSC.0b013e31828054b7), the study aimed to determine what impact – if any – stretching would have on stren gth production. The researchers employed three procedures: a warm-up plus static stretching before each session; a stretch prior to each training set; and no stretch at all throughout the session. Thirty participants were divided among the three groups for 10 weeks. The strength component featured eight exercise performed at an 8-repetition maximum. The researchers measured strength levels and basal serum insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1 – which is an anabolic agent that is released mostly from the liver, and occasionally from the bone, fat cells, testes and heart to stimulate tissue growth) before and after the intervention. Final data revealed strength improvements across all exercise for the no-stretch group, but only in some exercises for both stretching groups. The no-stretch group also showed increases in IGF-1 post exercise, whereas the others did not.
The authors concluded that strength can improve with a pre-stretch, an in-workout stretch or no stretch at all – but in this study, the most significant impact on both strength and IGF-1 occurred in the no stretch group.
Good morning UND, looking like a nice day with a high of 79.
Well the summer is coming to a close but there is still a full month of July, so come on let’s get out there, let’s get warm!
The movie of the week: Jersey Boys. I personally saw this movie and at first I thought to myself, “I can’t watch this movie. I can’t watch a man sing a song, he gets all emotional, his hips swiveling, and he’s swaying it kind of makes me feel embarrassed for them!”
Well that’s not the case, this is a great movie. A classic rock and roll story. “It’s the rise a fall of Frankey Valley And The Four Seasons.”
Catch this Rock and Roll classic at the River Cinema.
And know another bit of *Wow, I did not know that!*
In 1985 – The All-Star Game, televised on NBC-TV, was the first program broadcast in stereo by a TV network.
Have a great day everybody!
