Here are some of the health and fitness related links from October 22, 2012 that are definitely worth reading:

This weekend, I’ll be participating in the YMCA-sponsored Spooky Tails & Trails 5K at Veteran’s Park in Hamilton, NJ. It will only be my second event that I’ve ever participated in and I’m a little nervous about the condition of my shins going into it. I seemed to have pushed myself a little beyond my capabilities the other night and some fairly mean-spirited shin splints followed.
This morning, I did a practice
run walk at the park, but had to limit my running to well…just about none as the pain was a little overwhelming. I’ve deciding to rest for a couple of days and possibly resume my normal walk/run routine on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Urghh! Damn shin splints!
For the record, here are the results from this morning’s walk:
1km — 7m16s
1 mile — 12m35s
3 miles — 41m51s
5 km — 43m33s
Hello there. Thanks for visiting!
My name is Michael B. (or you may know me as miles_ahead on Twitter) and I
am was a certified couch potato! I’m only 5’5″, but this past summer I managed to let my weight balloon up to 183.5 lbs.! That was simply not acceptable!
So, as a result, I changed my eating habits (quite dramatically!) and started to exercise much more often and here I am — two months later and 24 lbs. lighter! But I’m hardly done! I may have lost the weight, but now I need to actually get fit!
