Would you ever run the marathon?
If you’ve been inspired by tales of complete amateurs deciding to do something about their sedentary lifestyle and signing up to complete a marathon in a fit of madness, why not set yourself the challenge?
After all, running is incredibly good for your health, helping to shift excess weight, boost metabolism and tone the muscles. Plus, the sense of achievement you get from finishing your first big race is something that keeps novice athletes coming back for more.
Charlene Hutsebaut, exercise expert for The De-Stress Diet, noted that you need to prepare for a marathon a few months beforehand to ensure your body is up for the challenge - four to six months of training is recommended so that beginners can safely build up their running mileage.
"This allows the runner to stay injury free and enjoy the running rather than doing too much with not enough time and either hating it or incurring an injury," she pointed out.
"For novice runners a walk/jog routine is recommended. Over a period of ten to 15 minutes do a walk for two minutes followed by a jog of 30 seconds. This seems small but it is a great way to feel like you’ve accomplished something and still enjoy the process."
When you’re training for a big run, it’s important to keep yourself hydrated. Treat yourself to eco-friendly gifts in the form of an aluminium water bottle - these are fully recyclable and mean you don’t have to resort to plastic bottles that are thrown away after the drink is finished to clutter up landfill sites.
And now that spring is here, you can take your jogging regime outside to enjoy the sights and smells of the new season. Joanne Tranter, co-ordinator at Running4Women.com, pointed out that running outside has lots of benefits, such as boosting your mood and making you feel more invigorated.
"One can go running outdoors at any time by simply stepping out the front door, and there is no cost," she added.

- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you Emiliano for your comment. In this blog we are referring more to oils, more so than butters and while we agree with you Shea is an excellent emollient for hair, it's consistency is more buttery and it is used more as a leave-in remedy to smooth hair texture. We have suggested Coconut oil as it helps slow down hair loss by penetrating deep into your hair shaft to prevent protein loss, which in turn prevents breakage. When applied to your scalp, it simultaneously moisturises and removes build-up around your hair follicles to encourage hair growth and is one of base oils always used in Ayurveda for hair treatments. As this post is more focused for hair and not for skin, the comedogenic scale applies to skin/pores and not hair follicles. Thank you again for your feedback.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Hello Zu, yes hair loss can be very stressful and this in turn amplifies the cause almost.. Perhaps with Covid, your system may have been depleted of nutrients and fighting the virus can take its toll on your immune system, so sometimes our hair and skin suffer when we have been ill. We really believe in oils for scalp massage as the best way to revive the growth and help regenerate the follicles. It may be also worth at looking at internal supplements and making sure you are getting enough of omega oils, perhaps plant based such as nuts and seeds in your diet. For external oil treatment, would recommend the Really Good Hair oil which we create with Brahmi, this herb is known to help bring the scalp back to health and improve growth. Biotin is also a good vitamin to take as a supplement to help with hair growth so do look into that. So hope these tips will be helpful for you.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?I, am very surprised that your article did not include Organic Shea Butter and that coconut oil, is your number one choice for hair growth and thickness. According to the comedogenic scale, coconut oil, has a rating of (4), on a scale from (0), to (5), on clogging your pores. Why would anyone put coconut oil, on their hair or skin knowing the pores will get clogged up. Shea Butter, on the other hand has a (0), rating on the comedogenic scale, which is great for dry hair and skin and won't clog up your pores.
- Which is the best oil for hair growth and thickness?Thank you for your very informative article. I suffered COVID in December, 2020, and in February I started experience extreme hair loss and all my hair jus falls like a person who is under going Chemo therapy. It's very depressing. Had to cut off all my hair and even the little that is left is falling off daily not sure what to do. Please suggest something.
- Carrot Oil for Face Hello :) You can use carrot oil only in small drops on your skin in the morning/during the day since it is highly potent. Carrot oil is rich in vitamins and is a very effective moisturiser. You can also mix a few drops of Carrot Oil with your favorite face cream. You can do that at least twice a week or include it in your daily skincare routine. Hope this helps.
- Carrot Oil for Face Can I use the carrot oil in the day time? Because I am using Vitamin c serum in the night. Please advise. Thanks
