...A NEW STUDY SUGGESTS.
Hang on, how do I do this? Er....hmmm, interesting?
comfy sofas and remote controls
so I'm blaming society
than get someone who has done feck all sat on their arse for years to start going jogging.
for me i think stopping smoking was harder. maybe
"such as a brisk walk"
TWO HOURS A WEEK isn't exercise!
Is the same TV that is making our children fat?!
bed >> car >> work >> car >> sofa
for ages i wan't even going on my lunchtime walk.
thankfully in november our office is moving so it'll be about a 45 minute walk or a short cycle.
my job is a fairly physically active one. therefore i don't need to do jogging or any of that carry on to stay 'fit' or 'healthy'. who's right?
but it's probably you. I guess you could even argue it's somehow better to get your exercise through the course of general day-to-day stuff. I'm not going to though, I like sitting down at work.
Like pretty much all nutritional and fitness guidance it's notional but useful all the same.
i used to do a very physical job and was fine. now i work in an office and am needing to find others ways to not die.
jogging has really screwed my knees. Which in turn has lead to an upsurge in sitting about doing feck all.
or cycle instead
<visualises unused bike in garage, feels guilty>
Recently been told I have flat feet, which may explain the knees thing.
There was something on Radio 4 this morning about there being no evidence based research for different running shoes having any measurable difference. They implied it was about your stride and posture when you run.
I've tried running like Michael Johnson but become too self conscious too quickly.
they were showing people on running machines... next to the running machines!
I was like woah.
