    Sure, there are fat Boomers and lazy Boomers and Boomers who have no desire to run around the block, much less up a steep mountain. But there also are running Boomers and cycling Boomers and swimming Boomers, marathoners and triathletes and boot campers who are defining themselves not by what they do Monday through Friday but what they do on Saturday and Sunday. read more

    The average resting heart rate is defined as the number of times your heart beats per minute (bpm). A normal heart rate for an adult ranges from 60 to 100 beats per minute. In case of a well trained athlete, heart beat rate may be as low as 40 to 60 bpm. This is the reason why many are envious of Lance Armstrong, whose normal resting heart rate is 32 bpm on paper. That's one really healthy heart! If your average heart rate is low, it means you have a really good cardiovascular health and efficient heart functioning. Read more.

    From the New York Times

    New Year’s resolutions tend to war with wintertime malaise. Resolution urges you to work out. Malaise suggests that you linger in bed. But there’s good news for those of us torn between these impulses. A number of newly published studies offer compelling reasons to get out and exercise on the one hand, as well as new estimates of just how little we can do and still benefit on the other.    More.....

       Yolanda Holder walked off this week with a world marathon record. Now the 52-year-old Corona homemaker who power-walked her way through 101 races this year is eyeing a second world title.
       Holder crossed the finish line at Sunday's 26.2-mile Rock 'n' Roll Marathon in Las Vegas to earn a spot in Guinness World Records as the most persistent female foot-racer anywhere.
       The previous women's record was set by an Italian who competed in 100 marathons in 2002.
       Holder's achievement was no stroll in the park, she concedes. "I package the marathons very tightly," she said. "The logistics of getting to all of them is harder than doing the 26.2 miles. This year I traveled all over the country to compete."

    From the New York Times.... December 8, 2010
    By Gretchen Reynolds

    By Monday, Four Loko, the alcohol-and-caffeine-laced energy drink, is scheduled to be removed from store shelves nationwide, following a ruling last month by the Food and Drug Administration that the safety of such beverages is unproven and that they should no longer be manufactured or sold. During the resulting media coverage, surprisingly little attention was focused on a corollary topic. What about nonalcoholic energy drinks, which will remain on sale? Are they safe? Effective? Who should be drinking them? Who shouldn’t?                 CONTINUE

    I crashed on my bike on Oct. 3 and broke my collarbone, an experience so horrific that my first impulse was to say I would never ride on the road again. Turns out I am not alone.

    “Well, you’ve joined the proud majority of serious cyclists who’ve busted a collarbone,” said Rob Coppolillo, a competitive cyclist in Boulder, Colo., who also leads rock- and ice-climbing expeditions and is a part-time ski guide.

    I’ve since heard from other cyclists who broke bones or were badly bruised and shaken up in crashes.
