Friday Facts ... The most important information for your week!

Have you had a fabulous week?  It's been a busy week here again ... but who isn't!

I'm still on a go slow on the training front with only a few slow runs so that I don't over strain anything and I can get back on track and hopefully finish this half marathon in August!

I managed a "long" run on Sunday .. only 8.5km but other than a little stiffness because I haven't done much running, I pulled up OK. 
I did a very short run on Tuesday and spent about 20 minutes doing lots of stretching and movement to keep my range of motion where it should be.
Yesterday's 5km didn't feel too bad either, with only a little niggle so fingers crossed the physio today tells me I've been a good girl.  And that any niggles I am feeling will miraculously disappear and I can resume normal training ... yeah, I know, I'll wake up now!

Off the training front as that's rather unexciting at present and on to the Healthy Eating episode!  I started my Healthy Eating Workshop this week and I plan on staying on track myself along with all my clients.  It's only been a few days but I am in the groove and am really not looking for anything I shouldn't be looking for!  Let's see how the weekend goes!

Now just for the fun of it, I found some interesting facts that I just know you will be able to use as you are going about your day ... either that or you will be able to sleep much better tonight for knowing this information ...



They have square watermelons in Japan ... they grown them like that to fit in their fridges and stack easier ...



There are over 1000 types of apples ... so plenty to choose from for a pick me up snack or they might even boost your exercise endurance!



 Lemons have more sugar than strawberries .. so next time the kids ask for a sugary lolly offer them a lemon ...







If you stop getting thirsty, you need to drink more water.  When the human body is dehydrated, it's thirst mechanism shuts down ... off you go now, grab a glass of water .. I did!

If you are right handed you tend to chew on the right side of your mouth .. if you are left handed, the left side ...

The world's most expensive coffee is made of civet poop ... a cat size mammal excretes the partially digested berries it has eaten and this is then harvested.  Hmmm must check where my morning coffee comes from ...

You lose your taste buds as you age ...

It takes the body around 12 hours to completely digest eaten food ...


You burn more calories sleeping than you do watching TV ... excuse me while I head off for a nap now!    


It is impossible to lick your elbow ... go on, no one's looking, give it a go!




I know, thank me later for all this terribly important information!

Have a great weekend everyone!  Head over to Fit Mum on Facebook and Instagram and share with me what you are up to!

I'm really glad I drink cheap coffee.
And I realised that it's true about chewing on the side of your mouth that is your more dominant side - if I ever bite my cheek it's always the right hand side.
