SIXERS FORWARD Elton Brand spends his summers at his home in the Los Angeles area. He calls it his "vacation spot," though he rarely allows himself to kick back and chill. Brand, who will be 33 in March, knows that the end of his NBA future is like an oncoming wave at the beach - it can't be stopped. He does his best each summer to stall the inevitable - riding his bike for endless hours and miles, swimming lap after lap after lap in the pool and working on his basketball game at a local gym. He wants to squeeze as many seasons as he can out of his body, and that is why the potential of losing this season to a lockout is so bothersome.

The good news for Andrew Bynum and the 76ers is that he incorporated full-speed sprints into his workouts. The bad news is that he was in pain. Bynum spent Saturday and Sunday working out harder than he has at any point during his recovery from bone bruises to both knees and cartilage damage in his left knee. "I got a lot of pain so we backed down a little today," Bynum said. Pain has always accompanied Bynum, who has ramped up his workouts in recent weeks. But on Monday he acknowledged that the pain might be the type that he will simply have to endure if he is going to return.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick told reporters last week that he is planning to have an organized workout or two with his wide receivers, tight ends, and running backs, possibly as soon as this week. "This time, we can do it our way," Vick said. Well, there is a way to organize a workout, and then there is Mark Sanchez's way, and Vick would be wise to follow Sanchez's blueprint. It is, after all, the gold standard, and as we all know the Eagles are the NFL's gold standard, so nothing less should do. Sanchez recently held a five-day passing camp with 14 of his New York Jets teammates in Southern California, where the quarterback lives in the offseason.

Despite being the subject of trade rumors, Asante Samuel was at the NovaCare Complex for the first day of the Eagles' offseason workout program on Monday. Also in attendance was running back LeSean McCoy, who could be a potential training camp holdout if the Eagles don't extend his rookie contract. Samuel typically spends most of his offseason working out in South Florida. He has skipped a number of the nonmandatory sessions during his previous four seasons with the Eagles. So his presence came as a bit of a surprise.

Most New Year's resolutions go bust in the first month. If you have running on your list of what will make a new you in 2015, though, here's advice from two coaches on how to make that resolution stick, whether you're new to running, looking to boost your game, or getting back into the sport. If you're a beginner Starting can be the hardest part, especially if you don't know how much you're supposed to run and when, and if that weird pain in your quad is a normal part of starting a new sport or an injury.

After his freshman year, Christian Stackhouse tried with his coach, Kevin Landolt, to get the Riverside wrestling team together for summer workouts. Stackhouse and Landolt were the only ones who showed up. They still went ahead with their conditioning training and continued to do so two or three times every week throughout that summer and the next two. Every so often, one or two others would join them, but it was often just the two of them. Coming from Riverside, not a traditionally strong wrestling program, Stackhouse knew he needed those extra workouts to compete with wrestlers from some of the established powers in the area.

Boot-camp workouts have been a staple of the fitness scene for some time now. Early boot-camp workouts were typically led by former drill sergeants and drill instructors. Today, some are led by fitness pros with no military background. Nate Griffin, who calls himself "Sgt. Nate," was a member of the Army Reserve for 17 years, where he worked as a medic and attained the rank of sergeant. While he was never a drill sergeant, true drill sergeants often whipped him into shape. During his years in the Army, he became an admirer of high-intensity Ranger training.

The Soul is holding an open tryout tomorrow at the NovaCare Complex in South Philadelphia. Registration is $80 and doors open at 8 a.m. Workouts begin at 9 a.m. under the supervision of new head coach Doug Plank. Players also can register today only through the team's website ( www.Philadelphia Soul.com) for $60. Three players from last year's tryout - Nyere Aumaitre, Jerome Hayes and Keith Stokes - started games for the Soul in 2011. The workouts will occur on the turf at the Eagles' practice bubble so metal cleats are not permitted.

MOBILE, Ala. - The only certainties in life are death, taxes, and the Eagles' arriving at the Senior Bowl in need of defensive back help. OK, so the third part might be an exaggeration, but it certainly has been the case for the Eagles over the last half-decade, in particular at safety. But this offseason it's quite possible that Chip Kelly will look at his starting secondary and blow up three-fourths of it. Cornerback Bradley Fletcher, whose contract is up, is unlikely to return.

MOBILE, Ala. - As the Eagles' "personnel executive" search continues, Chip Kelly will attend his first week of Senior Bowl practices as the team's de facto general manager. The Eagles' former GM, meanwhile, is not expected to be in attendance as practices begin on Tuesday. Howie Roseman will miss his first Senior Bowl in years, certainly since he became GM in 2010. Kelly, his assistant coaches and the Eagles' scouting staff will be here, however, as preparation for the draft begins in earnest.

JOEY MERLINO is headed back to prison again - this time for four months - after a judge ruled yesterday that he violated the terms of his probation from a 2001 racketeering conviction by hanging out with a mob pal at a Florida cigar bar in June. The former Philadelphia mob boss did not seem particularly troubled by that development. Maybe it's because he's already spent nearly a third of his life in prison. Four months is practically a weekend getaway. "I could use a good four months.

WOMEN are waisting away. No, not from starvation. It's something even more surprising - waist training. Women in search of hourglass shapes are foregoing personal comfort and donning supertight, corset-like devices that supposedly whittle their midsections with lasting results. Despite numerous reports that they can bruise internal organs or cause breathing problems, many wearers keep waist trainers on 24/7 - even while exercising and sleeping. The claim is that the practice of waist training - in extreme cases referred to as tightlacing - enhances weight loss by suppressing wearers' appetites and encouraging perspiration.

SOUTH WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. - The Taney players walked onto practice field No. 5 just before 6 p.m. Thursday, less than 24 hours before their first-round game in the Little League World Series. It was the Dragons' first time on a field since Sunday and the final day of four consecutive days off after a wild three weeks of qualifying. The Dragons were limited to using the facility's batting cages the previous two days because of rainstorms. If Taney is feeling any pressure from being Philadelphia's first entry in the Little League World Series, it did not show in the hour-long workout.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - They remain, by far, the most infamous words of Jeffrey Lurie's 20 years as Eagles owner. Gold standard. Those two words have stuck to the man like Gorilla Glue. Eleven years have passed since Lurie uttered that ill-timed and poorly conceived phrase that has been used against him in the court of public opinion. The funny thing is, Lurie's intended message was not that far off base. It's important to point out the entirety of what the Eagles owner said that day in 2003.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Nick Foles' star has risen since he was last on a practice field with Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, but he's not yet in Brady's class. So the Eagles' three practices in New England will provide Foles with a chance to further study the future Hall of Famer. "Of course, Tom's one of the best to ever play the game," Foles said. "It's great to watch him and see how he conducts an offense and where he throws a ball. It's great being out here from a learning standpoint.
