Thursday things to share

It’s Thursday, time to talk about things I’ve read and other stuff.  Things that I think might interest you, make you think, or make you move.

Rest Day

This first article really caught my attention because I do have a hard time taking rest days. That sounds  crazy to some people but for me, I like to be doing something all the time.  If I don’t exercise I just don’t feel complete but I know that everyone needs rest days but how many and how often?

Read all about Exercise Recovery and how long you should rest between workouts here.

As a runner, I know that strength training and weight workouts are good for me, in fact I would consider them necessary.  I just never know what exactly to do and whether it’s better to do more reps with lighter weights or less reps and heavier weights and for that reason this article from Shape Magazine caught my eye.

What do a condom company and athletes have in common?


SKYN is a condom company who has developed a line of athletic wear.called SKYNFEEL.

I’m not sure how I feel about the clothing but it doesn’t look like he’s wearing a condom…

Warning:  The next article I wanted to tell you about has information regarding eating disorders, if this is a trigger for you, you may want to skip this.

This next article appeared in the NY Post and I found it interesting.  I’m always reading articles about women with eating disorders but the twist here is that the person in this article is a man.  I found it interesting to read about anorexia from a man’s point of view.

That’s all of the articles that I have to share this week but I did want to share one more thing with you.

Karina Vetrano went out for a run on Tuesday around 5PM as she had done many times before, only this time she didn’t return.  Sadly, her father found her body later that night.  A victim of a sexual assault, Vetrano had been strangled.  I cannot even begin to imagine the pain her family must feel.  My prayers go out to her family and friends.

If you live in the Howard Beach, NY area please be careful out running alone.  You should always exercise caution regardless of where you live but especially in the area where the perpetrator has not yet been caught.

Stay safe.
