ON RECOVERY DAYS THERE IS LESS TIME PRESSURE, as these days have more discretionary hours. Instead of waking early to work out, it might be possible to start tackling projects before the usual morning hour and finish up in time to enjoy activities that don’t involve exercise. With friends or family.
For many, in our memories, summer was a special time. During childhood and when raising young children, it was a time to plan affordable and fun activities, like weekday picnic suppers, that weren’t possible other times of the year. Partly because of the nicer weather and longer days, and partly because everyone’s schedule was more relaxed.
Feeling nostalgic for the good old days, even if your schedule is not so relaxed? In addition to changing how we fit running, walking, or exercising into the summer months why not plan other activities to make this time seem special once again? Movies might be the ‘ticket’, especially on recovery days! To help you plan ahead and let the excitement of anticipation build, check out what will be showing in the next few months. Many are spin-offs or series that build on established franchise movies. But that’s why they are highly anticipated; we hope to experience that same great movie experience all over again.
The Rotten Tomatoes staff put together an article, “The 5 Most Anticipated Movies of Summer 2018.” Here’s the RT lineup: “Deadpool 2”; 2) “Incredibles 2”; 3) “Ant-man and the Wasp”; 4) Mission Impossible: Fallout”; 5) Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom”. Honorable mentions include: “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and “Sicario: Day of the Soledad”.
Whatever your tastes in movies are, think about seeing some during the week if it’s at all possible. Classics if first runs aren’t your style; some theaters have special offerings Going to the movies can be an activity, like running, walking biking, or exercising out of doors, that gets you away from the small screens that capture attention most of the year! Be judicious with the popcorn bag/box size you buy and skip the butter if you plan to go frequently! Make summer special again.
RUN & MOVE HAPPY!

BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
