SOME WEEKS SO MANY GOOD TO GREAT ARTICLES AND NEWS ITEM APPEAR ONLINE that It’s tough to keep track of them all, then prioritize those which are most helpful and deserve mention in a blog post. Other weeks, the materials that come to attention possess click-bait titles but seem mostly empty of real information.
A few have limited scope but practical application. They are ‘filed’, for the purpose of later being combined with other ‘nugget’ of advice articles in a post covering a broader topic.
Oftentimes these themed posts are never written, because there’s just not enough time.
Fitness-industry companies often tweet articles or send newsletters containing a week’s worth of these items written by talented writers. This is mostly how I discover them. It’s a good idea. I click on the ones that interest me.
As a trial this fall, each Wednesday’s blog post will feature “Selected Readings”; titles with links to a group of articles. The name comes from the practice in medical training programs of assigning scientific articles for resident doctors to read, to further their knowledge and help learn. Of course, these “Selected Reading” won’t have such a lofty purpose. They’ll just be items you might find useful or entertaining.
Week Sept 22-29

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.
