The Evolving Vision Of The Athlete With Stent Blog By FitOldDog And A Question For My Subscribers


Hi folks! Thanks for stopping by!

FitOldDog's first DVD product, with paper label (will get a DVD disk label burner IF they sell - see The Lean Startup for advice on such matters).

One of our first, learn from the animals, products, which is available for purchase at the FitOldDog Video Store.

Say, faithful subscribers, would you like me to add you to an e-mail list I’m creating to provide promotion codes for our video and text products?

The codes will give you a reduced rate (sometimes free) in return for following, and thus supporting, this blog? Thanks! Just comment accordingly on this post, and if enough people do so I’ll create the list and send out my first promo code for the video on posture. I sure don’t want to send anyone e-mails they don’t want – I have far too many myself – but I do want to develop a healthy business strategy to provide assistance to those who might benefit from our input. As a researcher at heart, I know that you have to have a dream or vision to get anything done. Then you create a strategy that might, if you are lucky, take you in the direction of your dream. The chances are that it will change course and take you somewhere even more interesting as long as you go with the flow, to you never know where.

I started this blog in the fall of 2010 with the express vision of finding all the other endurance athletes with an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA), pre- or post surgery, in order to have someone to talk to about this situation. I found one after six months, Pauline, who kindly directed me towards the AAA Facebook Page. I have still only found one AAA athlete to talk to, Pauline, however, I achieved my initial goal for the blog, but then it took on a life of it’s own.

At around the time I discovered my AAA, I was essentially forced to leave my job as a researcher in order to continue living where I do, Carrboro, North Carolina. This turn of events caused me to retire from a 40-year career in science to set up a business of my own. This endeavor, Old Dogs in Training, LLC, is now entering it’s third year, and my new goal is to provide tools that will enable older people, with or without disabilities, to undertake safe exercise for better health. Run Smarter WorkshopThe key to such exercise safety is body awareness, in my opinion and experience. I learned this through my encounter with, Karen, a local Feldenkrais instructor, who fixed a chronic knee problem, where everyone else, including doctors with needles, failed. This experience subsequently resulted in my undertaking the study of FeldenkraisContinuum and Gyrokinesis, which are the subjects of our upcoming Run Smarter Workshop, being held in Carrboro on January 19th, 2013 – I am hoping that this will be the first of many such workshops, as athletes and older people could benefit from these remarkable methods, whose general focus is heightened body awareness, the underlying principal of the products being generated by Old Dogs in Training, LLC.

Remember! To avoid injuries a heightened level of body-awareness is a critical skill.
