Elsewhere in the Blogosphere

Ran across this Weight Loss Management and Fitness carnival earlier today. Noticed some good information - including this article about stevia.

My C25K training is going well. Having already been walking/jogging since January, I started on Week 3, which I completed with no panting or day-after soreness. Last week, I combined Weeks 4 and 5. This week, I am following Week 6 of the program:

Brisk five-minute warmup walk, then:
Jog 1/2 mile (or 5 minutes)
Walk 1/4 mile (or 3 minutes)
Jog 3/4 mile (or 8 minutes)
Walk 1/4 mile (or 3 minutes)
Jog 1/2 mile (or 5 minutes)

When I finished yesterday, my pulse was 143, which is in the target zone for someone of my age (53) at my fitness level (works out at least three times a week).

Hope everybody's having a good week. I'm preparing for three more weddings this weekend!
