On the 1st of May PayAsUGym changed name. Rebranding and renaming a business is a serious decision to make. Here are my thoughts on this long important process
Love the socks. You can tell you're getting older when you like getting socks for Christmas!
I definitely feel more tired and moody during my period so not so up for exercising. But because I know exercise makes me feel perky I do try and force myself to do something. but I don't feel so energetic.
I'm a bit surprised that it matters for those of us for whom periods are just an inconvenience (I realise that isn't everyone). I just carry on as normal with the usual, er, adjustments!
definitely, please, don't come to the gym if you are sneezing and coughing. The rest of us don't want your bug just so you can prove a point, thank you.
Hi Mark, that's very interesting. Neil Armstrong clearly had a strong 'life force' and I think that keeps you going just as well as exercise. Plus, that means my low heart rate will help me live longer so I am keen to agree with him. is there any scientific evidence for what he says, I wonder?
I've been reading Neil Armstrong's biography - he DID believe that we all get a limited number of heartbeats and wouldn't waste any on needless exercise! He lived to, what, 81...? (not that I recommend this but I did find it interesting!)
I am the proud owner of a low heart rate (58 bpm) and have been like this since I was a teenager. Do some people just have lower heart rates regardless of fitness?
The best solution is being a parent that enjoys physical activity. Then they inherit that tendency from you so you don't have to push them! if you don't like being active yourself you will just have to pretend you do to get them in the habit too.
right with you, Amber - I'm afraid school PE lessons can often be no fun at all for the non-competitive. Schools should now be moving away from traditional sport but boy is it taking time. All we can do is encourage out of school exercise so they know it can be fun.
it's all very well saying encourage them with PE, but when you have a child who hates sport but loves reading, it's very difficult!
Well that is very true Dan. I used to worry about my partner who wore headphones when cycling into work. Yes it was on cycle trails and the volume 'low' but I still felt it was risky somehow.
I would also say that whatever it is, don't block our your surroundings. I cycle on shared paths and runners who can't hear my 'excuse me' or 'hello' are a menace to both of us!
Those Aftershokz ones sound scary - conducting music through your bones?!! Shudder to think about it.
I would say the best thing I have ever bought are my Apple earbuds. No leads, no hassle, feel comfy, great sound - I would recommend them to anyone.
I have always delighted in an unread book. E readers are fine, but proper pages just still have that 'something' - and are lower risk for reading in the bath, the ultimate in relaxation!
interested that 'The Martian' was mentioned; I discovered it late but I haven't read such an enthralling page turner in years. Books like that really do take you away from it all. Millions of miles away in this case!
the e-library is an absolute game changer for me, I can load up my ereader with books at any time and they never go overdue, they just disappear! When the kids are past the baby stage we'll be going to the real library, but in the meantime it is the only chance I get to borrow books.
I agree that reading can be the same as meditation in the way that it stops you thinking about things. But in the same way, escaping into a book enables you to avoid uncomfortable feelings that meditation can help you face. So I wouldn't say it's a good substitute. But good in its own right.
I love reading but have definitely found the internet has sapped my time for reading books. There's always so many things to 'check' and 'research' online. Nothing beats getting into a good book and the satisfaction of finishing something that's complete, rather than a random blog post.
A banana sandwich is the best thing you can have before a workout in my opinion. Simple and effective.
'appetite is the sauce', as grandpa used to say - nothing is tastier than the post workout snack!
This sort of article does encourage me to go swimming but it's just a shame we have to pay extra for it at my gym. I wish more gyms would include it in their membership
that's interesting that you need more carbs than protein after a high intensity workout. Why is that? I thought you would need moree protins to build all that muscle. And why fruit? Shows how little I know!
