Kickin' it Sportskool style.

In my new-found zest for yoga, I decided I needed to try two programs yesterday evening. So, I started out with Athletic Stretch (a short one) on the regular exercise tv. And then I decided to hunt around to see if there was a yoga for runners, or similar, program.

I typed "running" into the find shows screen and lo and behold a bunch of Running Training programs popped up. They are all on-demand, on the Sportskool channel. Who knew?


So, I tried it out. I mean, how could I not, right? Right.

I like it. I did one session and I can't wait to try some of the others. The session I did was all about "pre-hab" or, preparing your body fro the rigors of training so you avoid injuries. Some of the exercises were familiar to me, but many were new. The one called Y, T, W, L -- for shoulders and upper back -- is excellent! I know that if I keep on with it, the strength gained in those areas will help me in the late stages of the marathon.

My new plan: Incorporate the Sportskool Running Training programs into my pre-marathon training. I'll let you know how it goes!

Have you tried the Sportskool programs? It looks like they have tons of other sports, too!

I have not even heard of Sportskool Channel. Is this on Comcast or what? Sounds like you are heading in the right direction. Now if only I would follow. Take care.

Kenley -- I have Time Warner cable and it is on there. Not sure about Comcast. They have a web site: sportskool.com. It might list the broadcast areas.

Sportskool has a yoga for runners that I love love love. Have tried a few generic yoga videos with them and they are good as well. About to do the Ab focused one.

Exercise tv that TWC used to have is way better than sportskool.

I agree with Anonymous Exercise TV had way more to choose from. At this point I don't care what it's called, I just want some of the videos you could choose from before like aerobics, Latin dance, Pilates. Sportskool is missing alot of what I liked.
