Only the brave will run tonight. It is, after all, Halloween night when a ghost could leap out to spook you. Unless you out-freak it with your sweat face.
After something a bit unusual to do this weekend? I’ve got you covered. How about running a 10k blindfolded? Yup, this Sunday Queen Elizabeth Park in London will play host to the UK’s first ever event of its kind. Carnage. Brilliant, hilarious, carnage.
It’s been quiet on the Fitphernalia front of late. But I haven’t forgotten you or instantly donned my tiger onesie and refused to move from the sofa since autumn hit. No, I’ve been stateside in California – possibly the healthiest place on the planet – exploring the exciting new fitness crazes sweeping La La Land and beyond. Over the next few weeks, I’m going to be sharing my pick of the top ones to know about, name drop, and petition the founders to bring to the UK. First up, something with a touch of the sci-fi about it…
DOMS has become something of a buzzword in fitness of late. Once we all worked out what it meant (*clears throat and adopts authoritative tone* That’ll be Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness. i.e. the fact that aches and pains usually kick in the day after, or the day after the day after, working out) we liked to name-drop it as often as possible. Or was that just me?
Anyway, we can shut up about it now, because there’s a new workout in town – Speedflex – that uses special exercise machines and promises no (or very little) muscle soreness following a session. Soz DOMS.
