Staying Active During Pandemic Times

Staying Active During Pandemic Times
By Ellie Greenwood I’m sure like many of you, my exercise routine took a hit when social distancing and lockdown measures came into force in mid-March. I was no longer able to go swimming (an activity I use for cross training to supplement my running) and my twice weekly gym sessions were put on hold. At first I was at a real loss of how to work around these restrictions and was concerned that my training would be compromised, but as with any...

Help for This Allergy Season

Help for This Allergy Season

Interestingly, allergies and hay-fever have not always been a human trait. In fact, they’re relatively new to us. Seasonal allergies may have begun as recently as the Industrial Revolution, and—this is the intriguing part—they only hit the upper classes...
