“Have you heard the recommendation to walk at least 10,000 steps every day to stay healthy? Sounds good, but what if you’d rather ride your bike? Which way of keeping healthy is more effective? Let’s take a closer look.

Walking takes up more time

Walking 10,000 steps would transport the average person about 8 km (5 mi). If we consider the average speed of walking, 5 km/h (3 mph), then it would take roughly 1 hour and 36 minutes to complete the daily amount of steps.” (…)

What is better for me, cycling 5 miles or walking 5 miles?
“There are so many variables in this calcualtion as to make any answer pretty meaningless. How many gears does your bike have? What gear will you be cycling in? Are you going uphill, downhill or both? You might be able to freewheel the whole way, so running would certainly expend more energy. What kind of surface are you cycling/running on? How fast are you planning to run/cycle? The list of variables is endless.” (…),5753,-25888,00.html

Exercise Bike Vs. Walking / By Chris Dinesen Rogers

“For an efficient, low-impact workout, you can’t go wrong with an exercise bike or walking. Both activities help you maintain a healthy weight and improve your cardiovascular health.

With an exercise bike at home or walking, you can train at any time. Each allows you to slow down the pace or ramp up the intensity as needed. When deciding which activity to do, choose the one that keeps you challenged and motivated.” (…)

Why Do I Run Slow And How To Fix It?
November 20, 2016 / Fitness Training Running Health Q&A / By Jessica Natalie

“Perhaps you might be asking yourself: why do I run so slow? It seems like no matter what you do, you just cannot seem to get faster at running, let alone keep up the same pace for long. As a result, you might feel incredibly frustrated by your efforts, in that you feel to be making no progress at all in your running career.

However, do not let your negative thoughts take over you. Granted, it is challenging to get faster and better at running, but keeping a positive perspective on the situation is one way to get started.” (…)

If you are a slow runner….
Posted on April 6, 2016 by turtlemomblog

“Sure there are disadvantages to be a slow runner. First of all, we have to depend our luck on the lottery if we want to run at the prestigious marathons, such as New York City Marathon, Boston Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon and other popular marathons inside and outside the US, because our time does not meet their qualifying time.

Take me as an example. With my PR (Personal Record) now for full marathon, which is 6 hours, I will never get my BQ (Boston Qualifying ) time even until I reach 80. To qualify running for Boston Marathon without lottery for my age bracket, my time should be 3 hours 55 minutes. If I still run until the age of 80, I should be able to score the time 5 hours 25 minutes to be qualified. OK, I have planned to improve my PR and my target is to be able to run full marathon in 5:30. Now I have to be a little bit ambitious and try 5:20, so one day, God willing, when I hit 80, I will finally be qualified for Boston Marathon, of course if I can keep my PR that long😄😄 ” (…)

Extract of the article 

“The types of suit every man should own”


Fashion Beans editors

“There are few guys who don’t aspire to one day own a walk-in wardrobe filled with every type of suit, but we’re often in the dark as to how to get there. For the remainder, suits are a necessary evil: an insurance policy for professional and social occasions that you want to spend the bare minimum on.” (…)
