- Blissful starts her day with a two-minute plank – probably the best overall daily exercise for a hiker because it strengthens the core, increases balance and powers the body for all other athletic activity.
- Practicing Hot Yoga got Blissful through her hip recovery and she finds it powerful for learning to focus and getting "juice" flowing to the joints.
- Bike riding is a non-weight-bearing exercise, so the stress is on the muscles, not so much the joints. There’s also a built-in interval training and Blissful enjoys riding in an urban setting on the Grand Rounds.
- The best training for walking in the end might be walking, and Blissful visits some of her favorite state and regional parks, "training" while enjoying the flora and fauna.
MUSIC: Poema del Pastor Coya by Angel Lasala as played by Alison Young, flute and Vicki Seldon, piano.
