I've never been tortured,but I know what it's like. To beg for mercy, to request a reprieve. I know what it's like to ask forgiveness. Even when I've done no wrong -simply endured torment. I must have done something to call for a beating. No bruises outside,but I've got red eyes and an ache in my chest. Heart attack? No. There have been tears for a while - six months. A while. What did I get out of this? A withered sense of self -withered, but not dead.

Crena Anderson wasn't at Pearl Harbor when the Japanese attacked on Dec. 7, 1941. But the 88-year-old Halfway resident will be linked to that day for the rest of her life. She said her first and second husbands were stationed at Army bases in Hawaii during the attack, although the two young soldiers didn't know each other at the time. “I'm proud of what they did - very proud,” Crena said at her home earlier this week. “They must have been scared to death.” Crena said she married her first husband, Marvin Spencer, shortly after they met while he was home on leave in 1944.

At one time, I didn't do cardio training - whatsoever. Then I started getting old. When I was in my 20s, I was perfectly happy being one of the "strong guys" in the gym. Just don't ask me to run a mile. Nowadays, in my late 30s, I've actually learned to appreciate (and enjoy) cardio training activities like rowing, cycling, and boxing. I even designed a 16-week progressive interval training program all my clients must do at least twice per week. But just like me, many people don't give cardio training the time of day. Lemme tell ya why ya should .... Cardiorespiratory training What is cardiorespiratory training?
