Three Things

1. En dash redux. My publishing friends say go with it; others aren’t sure. (And Joan, it’d be “phone-number-length,” with hyphens; the en dash comes when you can’t wedge a hyphen in a word, say when it’s a proper noun, such as “USA Triathlon” or “Team Polar.” The en dash offers deference to open compounds.)… Read more »

Sage Yoga Training, Episode II: Revenge of the Lunge

I’ve gotten the second podcast together, with some help from my friend Alex. He showed me how to record the voice track in a “tent” created by draping my blanket over my head, desk, and monitor. (He tells me it would sound even better if I crawled into my coat closet with the mic.) And… Read more »

Sage Yoga Training: Lunge Series

Lunge Series A seven-minute series of low lunges to practice after your workout. Each pose is held for thirty seconds to improve your flexibility. (Once you’re familiar with the sequence, you might like to hold each pose even longer to work deeper.) You’ll be stretching the hips, hamstrings, quadriceps, and lower leg, while also releasing… Read more »

Beta Web Site Live

Is it a contradiction in terms for a Web site to be both “beta” and “live”? At any rate, you’ll see it here. I’d love to get feedback: “That color is weird,” “That link didn’t work,” etc. Podcast episode two is just waiting for music. Hope to have it up tomorrow afternoon. I’m looking out… Read more »

Logo

The pretty-much-final logo design. It’ll go on the podcast, the Web site, an ad in Endurance, business cards. I have an elaborate interpretation of the semiotics: the wavy line represents the upward trend of training results, supported by the sage green (yeah, I know), while also looking like the curves of a bottom (heh, heh)… Read more »

A Lovely Surprise

In a surprise package from my mother-in-law: the gorgeous book on Kripalu Yoga written by her teacher Richard Faulds, with a beautiful inscription: Dear Sage, What a dynamic life you’re leading! May all your disciplines, combined with a healthy measure of serendipity and grace, lead you down the road of an amazing and entrancing life…. Read more »

Rigging the Election

The podcast is now up on the iTunes Music Store. If you use iTunes, you can click here to find it. I’d love to get some positive reviews up there, hint hint. The idea is that eventually I can work advertising or sponsorship in–discreetly, of course, nothing obnoxious–so enthusiastic responses would help. On a different… Read more »

Podcast Up

Well, it’s not perfect (I ran out of time and energy before I’d figured out how to edit the voice track, and the pictures were a rushed job), but my first podcast is up! You can get it from my Web page, where you can subscribe to it, or you can look for it on… Read more »

Sage Yoga Training: Standing Stretches

Standing Stretches This six-minute sequence is designed to help you stretch your major muscle groups following a workout. If you’ve been listening to your iPod during your run, for example, you can tack the podcast at the end of your playlist—it will keep you honest at holding the stretches long enough for them to work… Read more »

And This One’s Self-Promotion

A shout-out to Dave Williams for valuing yoga! I’ll be talking on incorporating yoga in triathlon training–you know, the subject of my book-to-be!–as part of March Multisport Madness at the Wellness Center. You can sign up for the whole weekend or à la carte. Dave and his crew are great coaches–it’s going to be totally… Read more »
