Adopt a Road Clean Up     

It's that time of year again. Time to get together and tidy up Mississauga Road. We split the stretch of raod up according to how many people have come out to help and away we go.
Once done we meet at Spirit Tree for a beverage and treat to chat about our "New Found Treasures."

Sunday April 30th
Arrive: 8:45am
Depart: 9:00am - 11:00am

NOTE: Time to complete clean up will depend on the number of people that assist. We have blocked 2 hours but it can be longer/shorter.

Meeting Location:
Creditview Public School
13990 Mississauga Road
Cheltenham, ON L7C 1W4


Look at those numbers. So close to 3000km! 


How to deal with a sore Core

(Brought to you by

We’ve all been there. In our zeal to strengthen our core, tone our abs…maybe get a little 4 pack if not a full 6 (or 8!), we go overboard with the crank planks, Russian twists and ball pikes. You’ll leave the gym feeling like a bionic boot camp bad dude…until the next morning when you can barely sit up in bed. 

Yep, like the rest of your muscles, your abs, obliques and the rest of your core movers and stabilizers are susceptible to delayed onset muscles soreness (DOMS), the painful inflammation caused by micro-tears in overworked muscles. “Generally you stay sore for about two days, and it diminishes as the inflammation goes down and you get rid of the fluid” explains David Costill, PhD, director emeritus of the Human Performance Laboratory at Ball State University. Still, when the inflammation is in your core, which is so essential to daily functions like sitting, standing, and breathing, it can feel debilitating. Here are a few strategies to get you belly laughing again quicker.

1. Break out the Hot Water Bottle
2. Flush and Feed
3. Put'em Through The Motions
4. Give'em A Squeeze

And most importantly, Make It A Routine
When you do an activity you’re unaccustomed to, the contractions necessary are novel to your muscles. Those fibers won’t be as efficient as if you were doing an activity you practice regularly; some will be firing incorrectly; some will be tensing up. In other words, the new movement will beat those muscles up a little extra. So rather than sporadically hitting your core with a surprise movement every few months, set yourself up for success (and less pain) by making core work a regular part of your routine.
