overreaching can also leave your immune system weak so there's a fair chance that you have increased your odds of catching colds by doing this to yourself.

get some rest.

big charities that are not runike businesses are short hanging their beneficiaries. if it pays (raises more for your good cause) to employ fundraisers, hire a proper Ceo etc then it is neigsnt not to do so.

not every charity works on that scale of course but for the bigger ones this is by far the best model. obviously there have to be standards of governance around all that though.

cancer research UK. - big charity with s proper structure.
kids club- big charity run badly.

Talkback: Flexible fat burning speedwork for all abilities

tif you are train g hard and care about performance, younger care whether a tempo run, long easy run or cruise intervals give you the best fat or lactate burning.

if you're focussed on losing weight you would do well to say bollocks to that and do what gives you the best chance of running often, injury free, and without feeling the need to reaRd yourself with cake afterwardas- which is easy running.

here's a sensible take on it:

Dermot Phelan, MD,PhD, Director, Sports Cardiology Center at Cleveland Clinic, did not participate in the analysis, but reviewed it and states that care should be taken in interpreting these results.

???Exercise and even strenuous exercise is clearly associated with enormous heart health benefits in the vast majority of people when compared to people who do not exercise but, in a very small minority who have underlying problems, exercise can trigger arrhythmia,??? he says. ???While there is emerging evidence that prolonged strenuous exercise can increase risk of atrial fibrillation, the long-term risk of this is small compared to inactivity.???

ie unless you are unlucky/already predisposed to having a dicky ticker your cardio will do far more good than harm. I'm not losing any sleep over this.

on the bright side, this might reduce the number of people applying so we may get less moaning about the ballot as a result. huzzah.
