entral Park was designed for refuge, discovery and communing with society. Not for running. Yet 150 years later, its 843 acres are a paradise for runners. Learn new trails inside Central Park and listen to experienced runners describe their favorites.
I always look forward to Bill Cunningham's photo feature "On the Street" in the NY Times where he captures the fashion of the moment on the streets of New York in a photo collage. I'm a jeans and t-shirt person, but fashion is interesting to me in terms of how a look is put together (even though I don't practice this art form myself), and how/why fashion trends spread and emerge. And Cunningham is my favorite kind of expert: gleefully passionate, and driven by an unquenchable curiosity. This week's audio slideshow on the trend of men's falling pants paired with glittering belts is especially good. To hear his voice (vs reading his words), is delightful.
Via Get Fit Slowly, the one hundred push ups program. In a nutshell, it's a 6 week progressive training program to get you to one hundred consecutive push ups. It consists of 3 workouts a week, for a total workout time of less than 30 minutes. Sounds easy! If I start next week, I could run the NYC Half Marathon, then drop for 100 push ups at the finish line! OK, maybe not. But I could do a 100 push ups and that sounds like a fine goal. So who wants to join me?
