March 2012 articles
This morning we reached the magic 10,000 members number, as the emails zipped around the Walk4Life team we realised it is still going up, as I write this there are already 10,010. We've also made a few changes to the groups area on the site which we hope will improve the experience of being in a group. There are other, much bigger, changes to walking groups also announced today.
This week I heard about an interesting study on walking speeds which it’d be fun to share here on the blog.
Researchers found that if you can walk faster than 3 miles an hour then the Grim Reaper can’t catch up with you! In a light-hearted way, it seems the Grim Reaper can’t walk that fast!
I recently read an article that linked migraine with depression - it seems that women who suffer migraines are more likley to suffer depression. As a migraine sufferer that is not news to me. I smiled at the thought that doctors are being urged to remember this when talking to patients about their migraine, and to offer advice on dealing with depression. I wondered how many would think of suggesting walking to help.
