  • 4 tips to keep running even in the cold

Please enter your email address herecenter_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your name here Support conservation and fish with NEW Florida specialty license plate From Florida HospitalFor many runners, the motivation to hit the pavement falls along with the temperature. A dampened spirit is common for would-be winter runners, but it doesn’t have to be.With a little planning, there’s no reason for the cold to stifle your running habits. Furthermore, you’ll be prepared to run on the road, in climates cooler than Florida’s.We checked in with Florida Hospital Physical Therapist Samantha Corkwell for tips on running in cold weather. As a New Jersey native, she’s accustomed to running through the cold and helping athletes maintain their exercise routine over the winter.One tactic is to stay positive. For all the discomfort of running in the cold, there is a certain pride to be felt in braving the chill.“Running through the frigid months can make you feel like a warrior who’s still working toward your goals and doing something that others aren’t mentally tough enough to do,” Corkwell says.A handful of adjustments to how you get warmed up, dress and pick a route can mean the difference between preserving your fitness habit or playing catch-up later on.Layer up (then layer down)Alfred Wainwright, a British writer of walking guidebooks, once wrote, “There’s no such thing as bad weather, only unsuitable clothing.”When it comes to running in the cold, the question of what’s suitable should take into account how you’ll warm up once you start running.“Dress for 20 degrees warmer than the outside temperature because your body will warm up pretty quickly,” Corkwell says. “Layering up is a good thing.”Those racing in cooler climates should pay extra attention to this advice. Corkwell once showed up to a November half-marathon bundled up in a parka, gloves and a hat. She was planning ahead, knowing she’d be passing through security and waiting outside for at least an hour.Many such runs collect and donate winter clothing left along the route. In 2015, Chicago Marathon volunteers collected about seven tons of runners’ discarded clothing.For those who can’t discard items along with their route, she recommends choosing pieces of clothing that are easy to peel off and wrap around your body or stuff in a pocket.A hat, gloves, and scarf are always solid choices to prevent excessive heat loss through the head and hands.Corkwell is a fan of sweat-wicking clothes, including socks, to help keep your body dry so it doesn’t lose too much heat. Waterproof shoes are another way to help your feet stay dry.She also likes to run with a handwarmer in case her hands get cold. Finally, don’t forget your lips; carry some chapstick to keep them from drying out in the cold wind.Beef up your warm-upThe biggest health risk for cold-weather runners is pulling muscles that haven’t been properly warmed up, Corkwell says. The remedy is to extend your warm-up period.“A lot of people, especially when it’s cold, want to get their run over with,” she says. But warmups are even more crucial in cold weather, especially for people with prior injuries.The ideal length of a warmup varies based on the runner and their pace, but in general Corkwell recommends a warmup of between 10 and 15 minutes in cold weather.“In the beginning of a run, if you slowly ease into your pace it can act as a warmup,” she says. But if you’re running for speed, plan on the longer warmup to get your body ready.This advice is especially critical for those with breathing issues, including asthma. In colder temperatures, it will be more difficult to take a deep breath.“If you have any tendency toward asthma, I’d recommend much longer warmups and a focus on breathing through the nose and taking slower breaths,” Corkwell says.Pick a routeChoosing a safe route is important in the best of conditions, but in the winter there are a few more factors to consider.“I would stay on any of the sidewalks of cities I knew did a good job of plowing and salting,” Corkwell says. Universities also tend to keep their paths clear.If you’re running on the road, don’t just ask whether it’s too icy to run – think about whether vehicles might lose control.“I would avoid running in the street in snowy weather,” Corkwell says.Consider choosing a route that you can share with someone else. The willpower needed to run in the cold will be easier to maintain with a partner.“When I was training for any runs in the winter months, I would usually run with a friend because it’s a lot easier to get out there and face those temps if you have a running buddy and someone to hold you accountable,” Corkwell says.Stay hydratedThere is a misconception that you don’t need to drink as much water in cooler weather, Corkwell says.“During the winter, especially because cold weather has a drying effect, we want to make sure that athletes are having proper hydration before and after a run,” she says.In other words, whatever hydration system you use in the summer – whether it’s a bottle, pack, belt or something else – keep it in the winter.In the end, much of running is about personal preference. For Corkwell, who’s been in Florida about a year and a half, the summer months are actually her slow time; she says running in the heat is too uncomfortable.For those runners who want to keep going in the winter, Florida Hospital physical therapists and the rest of the sports medicine team can help you create an individualized exercise plan.“We can assist our patients with strategies for warming up, including creating a dynamic stretching warm-up to target problem areas,” Corkwell says.

  • Juan Martin Hernandez one-handed long pass in the rain

    first_imgMonday Sep 9, 2013 Juan Martin Hernandez one-handed long pass in the rain Despite having suffered numerous injuries and never quite having reached the consistant form of some years back, Juan Martin Hernandez is a rare talent. Capable of doing just about anything with a rugby ball, here’s a look at one of his latest tricks. Last year, the inaugural year of the Rugby Championship, Argentina stepped up and competed well in their first ever inclusion in a major tournament. Hernandez played his part and against New Zealand we saw him produce a fan favourite clearance kick.He went for a banana-kick, somehow controlling it to the point that it went out into touch.On Saturday, deep in his own half and with the rain pelting down, he did something special again. This time is was a one-handed long pass to Juan Manuel Leguizamon. Sure, he could have just passed it in a conventional manner, but then he’s not called El Mago (The Magician) for nothing.After the game he said that his side gained confidence from the narrow defeat to the All Blacks.“We must continue to learn from them. They’re a great team and know how to manage the game,” he said. “We need experience and maturity. Hopefully we will grow.”He added that they hope to get good ball and attack more in their upcoming match against Australia, and that they are growing game by game, gaining experience and confidence. He’s clearly referring to his team mates, because judging by passes like this, confidence is not an issue.View All Blacks vs Pumas highlightsADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error See it to Believe it Related Articles 25 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Experts explain what actually happens… 26 WEEKS AGO WATCH: Leigh Halfpenny makes yet another… 26 WEEKS AGO Parisse alley-oop magic sets up brilliant… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

  • Bluegrass, gospel on tap for storytelling fest

    first_img Email the author By Jaine Treadwell Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Plans underway for historic Pike County celebration When the Brundidge Historical Society decided more than a decade ago to expand its folklife productions to include a storytelling festival, the idea was to pull from the success of its original folklife play, “Come Home, It’s Suppertime.”The play always opened with pre-show music – bluegrass and Southern gospel. By The Penny Hoarder The Penny Hoarder Issues “Urgent” Alert: 6 Companies… Although several traditional music groups have entertained at the Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival, the Lighthouse String Ensemble and the Benton Brothers have been the mainstays since the beginning. With the addition of The Hendersons three years ago, the festival music is family connected.Some of the family connections are strong while others are rather loose. Either way, the bands are connected by blood and by love of the old time music.Amanda Smothers, lead singer for the Lighthouse String Ensemble, said she didn’t even know that there was anything like a storytelling festival until 10 years ago.“But the festival reminded me of sitting around with my grandparents and listening to stories,” she said. “Being from the South, I felt like I knew the characters in the stories told at the festival and that endeared them to me.

That’s when I became known as the little girl with the big voice.”In 1994, Smothers began singing with her dad, Mike Benton, who plays lead guitar and mandolin. She considers it a real blessing to be on stage with her dad and to share the gospel message in song.The Benton Brothers, Alex and Lee, have been performing at the We Piddle Around Theater since they were teenagers. Their dad, Mike Benton, is distantly related to Smothers’ dad.Although the relationship is distant, the love of Southern gospel music is close to all their hearts. While Smothers and her dad grew up playing and singing gospel music, the Benton brothers didn’t start playing until they were teenagers.“Lee and I went to the Henderson Bluegrass Festivals and liked the music. We got guitars and took a few lessons,” Alex said. “When our grandmother got sick, we would go over and play for her. And, we’d play a little at church, at nursing homes and small festivals.”Now, they play at events almost every weekend. They have been the house band at the We Piddle Around Theater for about eight years.“We’ve gotten to play at the storytelling festival and for other storytelling events,” Lee said. “We like storytelling and really enjoy getting to meet and talk to the storytellers. It’s a real honor to be around them.”Jared Henderson of The Hendersons plays with his dad, Dewayne and cousin Terry. His mom and Smothers’mom are sister so there’s a strong family connection there.“When I was a kid I grew up going to gospel singings all the time,” Jared said. “My family makes up the Lighthouse Singers that have been singing gospel music locally for 30 years. For years I didn’t sing but when I was 20 years old, I finally got up enough courage and started singing and playing the guitar with the family group. There is nothing I enjoy more than singing gospel music. It’s truly an honor and a privilege to be able to sing for the Lord.”Jared said he attributes almost all he knows about gospel music to his family. “They are my singing heroes and mentors. I’m thankful I was raised going to their singings and they inspire me to want to sing for the Lord. We love to sing old songs out of the classic “red back hymnal” and will definitely be singing several of them at the storytelling festival this year. I am thankful that I can share a love for old time gospel music with Daddy and Terry.”The Pike Piddlers Storytelling Festival on Saturday, January 30 will feature The Lighthouse String Ensemble at 9:30 a.m., the Benton Brothers & Company at 1:30 p.m. and The Hendersons at 6 p.m. The pre-show will last 30 music with the storytelling concerts to follow.For tickets and information, call 334-685-5524 or 670-6302.

  • Jeffrey Epstein’s death ruled suicide by hanging, source says

    first_imgMivPiv/iStock(NEW YORK) —  Accused sex trafficker Jeffrey Epstein’s death in a Manhattan jail cell was ruled suicide by hanging, New York City’s Office of the Chief Medical Examiner has concluded, a source familiar with the conclusion told ABC News.ABC News has previously reported Epstein hanged himself with a bedsheet in his cell at the Metropolitan Correctional Center, where he was found unresponsive about 6:30 in the morning on Aug. 10.On Thursday, a city official with knowledge of the autopsy told ABC News that Epstein sustained a broken hyoid bone, which is near the Adam’s apple. Experts say the injury can be associated with suicide or strangulation.OCME is expected to formally release its determination this afternoon or this evening.The autopsy was completed on Sunday.Epstein’s apparent suicide occurred after he was previously found on July 23 unresponsive in his cell with marks on his neck and taken to a hospital, sources with knowledge of the episode told ABC News.He was placed on suicide watch, but removed on July 29 after jail officials determined he was no longer a threat to himself, sources said.In the wake of Epstein’s death, staff members at the MCC jail, who have been placed on temporary leave, are suspected of falsifying log entries to show they made the proper checks on Epstein and other inmates in the Special Housing Unit at the federal lockup in Manhattan, but those log entries have been contradicted by surveillance footage, the sources said.ABC News has previously reported the staff failed to follow protocol that requires welfare checks every 30 minutes.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

  • Accident reporting falls short

    first_imgRelated posts:No related photos. Accident reporting falls shortOn 1 Aug 2001 in Personnel Today The HSE hopes its new information sheet will improve accident reporting inthe catering industryAccident reporting in the catering industry is half what it should be, theHealth and Safety Executive has warned. Compared with an average accident reporting rate of 46 per cent across allareas, accident surveys have shown a considerably lower rate of reporting – 23per cent – for the catering industry, it said. It blamed the low rate on confusion within the industry about the range ofaccidents that should be reported – particularly when accidents involvedmembers of the public, self-employed workers or were related to acts ofphysical violence on staff. The HSE has published an information sheet, Reporting Accidents in theCatering Industry, which it hopes will help improve the accident reporting rateand clarify any problems. It provides information on when, how and who to report accidents to, as wellas how to get in touch with the HSE’s central contact centre. Percy Smith, of the HSE’s enforcement liaison activities section, said,”The data collected through accident reporting is vital to ensuring HSEguidance to the industry is based on the real picture and gives accurateinformation on the root causes of injuries and ill-health.” But Miles Quest of the British Hospitality Association said the difficultyfor the industry lay in the fact there were some 300,000 cateringestablishments around the country, many of them only employing three to fivestaff. Many people in the industry simply did not know what accidents to report, orhow to do so, he argued. “We have not got a reporting system in the same way as there is for,say, the engineering or nuclear industries. It is about the function and thestructure of the industry as much as anything else. “Obviously chefs do cut their hands from time to time, things like thathappen, but generally there are not that many accidents,” he said.

  • Pay ruling leaves employers vulnerable to claims

    first_imgPay ruling leaves employers vulnerable to claimsOn 10 Sep 2002 in Personnel Today Related posts:No related photos. A landmark equal pay ruling last week should alert all employers to thedangers of inconsistent pay scales, an employment lawyer has warned. A panel of independent experts appointed by a Newcastle employment tribunalruled a group of women working at Carlisle Hospitals NHS Trust had suffereddiscrimination over pay. The panel came to its conclusion after comparing the wages of the women –including nurses, catering assistants, clerical officers, sewing machineassistants, porters and telephonists – to the wages of a group of craftsmen,joiners, building labourers, wall washers, works officers, craftsmansupervisors and maintenance assistants. Makbool Javaid, employment partner at law firm DLA, said: “Employersneed to ensure their pay scales are rational and consistent across theorganisation.” Karen Jennings, national secretary of Unison, which represented the workers,said: “This confirms there has been historic discrimination against womenworkers in the health service.” Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. last_img read more
