I'm a sweaty guy. The type of guy that brings a linen closet's worth of towels to get through hot yoga. I get pretty stinky too; a couple days without showering and my scent deteriorates to a smell best described as "grandpa's wedding jacket". So personal hygiene takes a little extra effort for me.
You can feel it on the Wednesday, but only if you''re really paying attention. The air sits a little heavier on your skin, and if you listen very, very carefully, you can make yourself believe you hear it... a soft buzz in the air. It's a sign.
I've always been a synthetic boot kind of guy. I can't really say why, maybe because my Dad always wore full leather boots and I thought they were too "old school." Well what's old is cool again and as usual, Dad knew best. The full-leather Hi-Tec Altitude Pro RGS ($199.00) earned a zero-blister rating from me.
Hiking Tunnel Mountain is fine, slogging up Rundle is good, but if you really want to know; the sweetest hike around Banff is right in the middle of town. It just so happens there is an incredible collection of fudgerys, chocolate and candy shops on Banff Avenue, just waiting for you to indulge.
I'm a summer kinda guy. Give me green trees, short sleeves, and buzzing bees; those are my needs. I know you winterphiles are out there: you people that live for fresh powder, Christmas and a good game of pond hockey. I can respect your love of the season but I certainly can't understand it.
BY JOHN REID Crystal Phillips is always on the move; skating, biking, running. Her fast-paced lifestyle makes it hard to believe the Beaumont, Alta., native has a debilitating degenerative disease. In 2005, Phillips, then 19, was bursting with potential as one of the top young speed skaters in the country.
I am an Albertan, born and bred, and there are a few things I love about my province. No provincial sales tax. The Flames/Oilers rivalry. Bold, savoury Alberta beef. That''s right, I love the fruit of the bovine. If you told me I could only eat rib-eye steak cooked Chicago-medium for the rest of my life, I''d hope to live to 100.
Electrolytes are minerals that act as little electrical transporters to keep fluid moving in the body. Your kidneys use hormones to regulate electrolytes, but when there aren''t enough electrolytes there''s not a lot they can do. The key to remember is that when you''re sweating you''re not just losing water, you're losing electrolytes, too.
Ahhhh...summer! The majestic flocks of Canada geese have returned North, the snow is melting high up in the alpine, and the panicked, haggard breathing of the runner in front of you is escalating as you overtake him in your first 10-kilometre race of the year. That''s right.
You workout, you sweat your butt off, you put time, energy and money into exercising to get healthy, right? So to hear that time spent in a gym might actually harm you would shock you, wouldn't it? Well brace yourself, because this is the big secret of the fitness industry.
Adding anywhere between 15 and 40+ pounds during pregnancy certainly creates some issues to work around, not the least of which is finding some cute maternity clothes that won't break the bank! And while there's lots of information about finding maternity clothes online, you won't find nearly as much about taking care of hip or back pain while pregnant.
We first wrote about Canadian triathlete Rachel McBride in this June blog post when she was smack in the middle of her 2012 racing season. Quick recap of what she's like: She's busy like a bee in late summer (tri-athlete, cellist and genetics researcher) She's smart like Ken Jennings playing Jeopardy!
