Carbohydrates and runners - Carbohydrates seem to be a source of confusion for athletes and fitness exercisers alike. Due to trendy diet books, many active people do not know what to eat. They just think they should avoid pasta, bagels, juice, bananas and sugar - even if these foods are non-problematic for them.

Running and twitting don't mix - James Coleman, a jogger, has become the first man in Britain to suffer a "twinjury", an injury sustained while using Twitter. He was "tweeting" to his followers on his Blackberry while jogging to work when he cracked his head on a heavy low-hanging branch.

Tell someone whose opinion you value that you are going for a run.
