Just to provide some background, lightning is a real problem and causes a lot of casualties. From Medicine for Mountaineering, 6th Edition: Lightning was the second most common cause of weather-related death over the forty-year period from 1962 to 2002. Only floods, many of which are also produced by thunderstorms, killed more people during this ...

You can certainly find ways to keep your cardiovascular system intact while you let your toe heal. However, I think you may want to carefully consider the wisdom of trying to run a marathon less than 3 months after what you describe as "severely damaged" ligaments. If it takes "at least 6 weeks" before your doctor says that you can begin to run, that gives ...

“CrossFit Endurance coach and 100-mile trail run fanatic, Brian MacKenzie of Costa Mesa, California, scrawled a simple looking workout set on a whiteboard in his home gym, then spent five minutes teaching me proper rowing technique. I was in need of a workout to help me retain fitness while I rehabbed a foot injury, so he directed me to a rowing ...

A huge reality you need to embrace is that if you do not make sizable time and adjustments for your health now, you will make time and adjustments for long term and generally incurable health problems in the future. You might be "busy" now with life commitments, but being on a kidney dialysis machine will make you even "busier". This isn't about having a ...

Nothing beats running of course, but it looks like you have to scratch that off your list entirely. You might want to give cycling a shot. With clipless pedals and shoes the force is delivered through the ball of your foot, not really at the toes. Also, you can drag the cleat back on the shoe that it's pretty far to the back of your ball. Very stiff shoes, ...

The reason exercise helps to lose weight is because it increases the calories out number, but it is not strictly necessary with good diet (though it will increase ...

Are you looking for an order for these things? I just stopped being a student but I would be inclined to do Train Eat Meditate Study You should eat soon after training to make sure you actually get the benefits of your workout. Then meditating to get yourself into the mindset to study makes sense.

Exercise during the trip even though its not necessary in this case. Start now to get into the habit of it. Reschedule is better than doubling up. I go for hitting some performance highs if I skip a work out, and generally don't regret it.

I'll just answer this from my own experience. For my job I often have to leave for a few days and can't access any strength training facilities. Worse (or better?) my job is physically demanding so I come back to town and I'm pretty beat up, sleep deprived, and didn't eat so well. It's a real drag because I can't maintain the progressive strength training ...

Whatever you decide to do should be dependent upon your training goals (eg. Training for a competition or race, etc.). Missing a training day is not the end of the world as long as it does not become a habit. Life happens, and, sometimes it impacts your training. Often, this results in “training guilt” especially if you’re a person that regularly trains. ...

I would increase the amount of exercise BEFORE the trip, since you know have a slot for recovery. Whatever workout you would do at the time of the trip, do it before instead, together with whatever you would do otherwise.
