The only debate is how far mainstream media shoud go in an effort to "keep up" with social media.
This is a good point. I think we were discussing this during the Boston Marathon bombings; "news" reports are suddenly transformed from editorially succinct periodic updates with summaries about what has recently happened, into 24/7 media reporting commentaries, inevitably and rather clumsily mixing up reportage, actual news, masses of speculation, desperate time-filling with reporters stating the bloody obvious, big fat slices of voyeurism and the occasional factual update. I suppose editors of commercial news stations will be happy with the ratings because they know people love a bit of rubber-necking at car crashes, but it does turn supposed quality news broadcasts into twitter with pictures, IMO.
Phil, that sounds like every single Fox News broadcast ever
Ouch! You have my sympathy, I occasionally get exercise-induced migraines but from things like intense yoga classes or weights sessions where a lot of pressure has been put on the muscles in my neck and shoulders (which are already tight thanks to desk job), rather than running.
Do you think perhaps that you are more tense through the upper body when you are doing the shorter distances? Perhaps try doing some dynamic stretches specifically to loosen up the muscles in shoulders and upper back before and after you start the run?
Hope you find a solution, migranes are horrible things.
I sometimes do a part-run commute, unfortunately running the entire 8 mile route home gives me the choice of either running alongside a busy dual carriageway for a couple of miles or through the town where all the guns and drugs live - so I prefer public transport for that bit. Might change my mind when I get further in to marathon training ... could get some good speedwork done!
