The top sumo wrestler in Japan is a Mongolian man whose sumo name is Asashoryu. Until recently, he was the Yokozuna. This is the top rank in Sumo. He has been suspended from participating in tournaments because he told the sumo organization that he had a serious injury that would likely require hospitilization. Not a few weeks later, he was on TV playing soccer doing dives and running hard. As I understand it, the Yokozuna is supposed to keep wresting unless he has a serious injury. Al...

Hello All, This morning the plan was hill repeats. I got to the clubhouse to meet up with my training partner, but she wasn't there. I waited a bit, then called. I left a message and walked out the gate. I thought of going to our long training hill, but as I got to the street I changed my mind and went across the street into the desert.. There is a large piece of undeveloped desert land there. Lots of sandy dunes. I jogged until I made a loop in the sand, two uphills, two downhills. The...

Hi All,This morning was cross training on the bike. Last night I left my monk's bag at a home I was visiting. So this morning I rode my Trek over there, picked up my bag and rode to the synagogue for a breakfast discussion (2.0 miles). From there I rode to the mall to meet a Zen student. We talked, I drank a bottle of water, and then rode back to my home (4.0 miles). The ride back was all uphill in the heat of the mid-morning sun. Another half bottle of water. At home a quick shower and more...

Good Morning All, I have not been posting regularly to Team Zen, which includes my Penguin Runners and Walkers Group, sorry to say. Yet, this does not mean I have been a couch potato. The day after our Summer 5k race I walked a 2.75 mile walk and swam some laps. This morning was supposed to be speedwork. But I am still recovering from my little race. I jogged/walked 2.25 miles and will be heading to the pool shortly. I have been substituting thirty minutes of yard work each mo...

With palms together, Good Morning All, Our sesshin was cancelled early due to lack of attendance. Rev. Busho, Kajo and I made the decision after lunch yesterday. Good thing since two of the three us us were pretty whipped by the race we did in the morning. Team Zen was well represented at the Summer Run along the Rio Grande yesterday morning. Revs Goho, Busho and myself did the race. Also part of our group were my son Jacob, Almost Daughter-in-Law Julie, Training Partner Katie...
Today was the big day. For some this was the big race of the year. The day they have been training months for. For others it's a day just to enjoy the crowds and hoopla surrounding this very talked about race content to just finish. It's called Beach to Beacon or B2B and today was the 10th anniversay of this most successful race. It starts at the entrance of a beach and ends at a very famous Lighthouse in Maine. If you see the Lighthouse landscape pictures of the Northeast most lik...
I am in training....sort of. I have a huge 10K on Saturday. I've only run two races (5K) so far this summer, not nearly enough to be at all competitive for such a large race. I managed to do hillwork tonight, and it was brutally hot and humid. I was glistening big time after this very hot workout. I passed my husband as I was running down the hill and he was absolutely soaked as he huffed and puffed his way up after running his circuit of seven. This race, put on by Joan Benoit, is ...
Since I've been stirring the pot a bit lately, I thought I'd put out something a bit more bland but informative at the same time. Even if you're not a runner as I am, certainly you've come into contact with runners as you buzz around town in your automobiles. If so, I just wanted to give you some helpful hints on how to help that next guy or gal you see huffing and puffing down the street. These things may not even have occurred to you unless you've done a bit of running yourself. So he...

So on Saturday afternoon the wife and I decided to head Downtown to check out the inaugural Detroit International River Days. We arrived about 6pm, and parked just East of the Rencen. First I want to say kudos to the people who put this on. It was well run and there was tons to do. We first watched the Airdogs display, which featured dogs jumping for height and distance. Then we headed over to check out the Ste. Clair (Boblo Boat). After taking a break in Tri-Centennial State Park we headed back...

Martial Arts training is a great way for your child (and yourself)to gain better health both physically and mentally. Your child canlearn other benefits such as discipline, self-control, and learning howto defend themselves. Choosing the right school is very important, andparents should take the time to research the schools beforehand. The teaching of Martial Arts has turned into a multi-million dollarbusiness here in the United States, and parents must be aware of whatthey are getting themse...
Class wasn't as bad tonight.....I did do a "pulloff" though. That's when a trick goes wrong and you can't hold the bar any longer. Actually, that's how I tore my my right hand. The left was from hesitating instead of poping into a back ended bird's nest. sigh. I WILL get this. you can't actually see me pull off, but you hear the gasp....and one of the few times I pulled it off (admitedly bad form...)
This is a debate that people have tossed around for years. Exactly what defines a "sport?" To me, this is how I define them and some reasons why other activities and competitions are not included in my list of sport. 1) Sports must have 2 sides. Offense and defense. And both sides must have equal opportunities. The roles can change throughout the compettion, but both sides must have an opportunity to be both offense and defense. ****this negates hunting, fishing and other activit...

In what should be one of the highlights of their season and their attendance numbers in their final year at RFK stadium the Washington Nationals are having difficulties selling tickets for their match-up against nearby rivals the Baltimore Orioles. Now the series against the Orioles is just one example of depressed attendance at RFK, but it is one that I think very obviously points out where some of the attendance problems are coming from. First, the team is bereft of stars.  They los...
