Health & Fitness
My diary about health and fitness, injury recovery from a serious car crash in the beginning of 2006, including several subsequent operations to help fix the damage.
In this article I look at several free applications for Android and iOS which I think essential for aiding your weight loss efforts. I have tried these and used them myself and found they are all beneficial to achieving your weightloss and fitness goals.
When it comes to health and fitness, we all have similar goals - lose weight, build muscle and so on. What is it that stops us from achieving these goals?
We have all tried some fad diet plan at some point in our lives, putting our bodies through a crash calorie diet to lose weight for a wedding, holiday or important date. The truth is that the weight will start creeping back just as fast as the weight loss is unsustainable in the long run.
On the 18th June 2017, I completed my first formally timed 10k run for the Glasgow Mens 10K, and I was raising money for Cancer Research UK as well. After months of training from the couch to 10k, diet, running plans, running gear, injury and recovery, here's what I learned from the experience.
I've been suffering from shin splits ever since I started running a year ago. It seems to be a persistent problem where after 2 weeks of running twice per week, about 3-4k distance each run, I then have to take a few weeks off to recover from shin splints.
I've been going out running now twice a week gradually building up the distance while improving my pace. I'm aiming for a consistent pace, not a fast time. If I can keep a consistent pace from start to finish and then improve that pace I'm doing good.
