Alcohol Effects on Health.

“Other mechanisms by which living alone could increase cardiac risk have to do with possible social isolation and loneliness, and these are more challenging to fix”

After a busy weekend in Prague and jogging only on Saturday and taking day off on Sunday. I’m back on the track as of Monday morning 18. June.
Stunning sunny morning in the royal gardens of Stromovka. I felt a bit sluggish but my Nike+ recorded this run as my fastest ever, oh well done. Sometimes when we feel we’re not doing too good we’re actually doing our best!!




Didn’t feel like to get up this morning. My bed was so warm under my blanket, and for June, the weather outside not very nice, gray and rainy.
Well done for my effort tho, jogging the longest distance zig zag track in Jardins des Plantes, 8,6km zig zagging between the gardens lol.
I have one more day to run in Paris and then from Friday I will be reporting from Prague, Czech republic again. Cheerios

I woke up early today even before my alarm went off. I Put on my gear and went for jog. It was a dull rainy morning in Paris. But Soon as I got going all the dullness left me like that! Thoroughly enjoyed the run in the rain. Hardly anybody in the gardens. I switched to my meditating mood, firstly praying for all the pain going away from my ankle and it did, and then I got an Idea I wanna run a marathons next year. I would love to do them all but somehow I think my old body wouldn’t cope very well. Budapest, New Delhi and of course Paris popped up in my head. Have to check the Internet weather the dates don’t collide within each other, because if so I would keep New York on the bench just in case.
Anybody has any experience running in one of these? Tell me in comments bellow.?!

Summary of today’s run 6,66 km in 37mn, probably put about 40% of my regular effort, well it was unintentional but truly evil track!! Jogging at my favorite Jardins des Plantes. And something to smile about was that my alarm clock went off as I was finishing my run, so was I dreaming?? Lol

ImageAfter one week rest, i’m back on the track.Trying this new round from my Flat to palais De La Porte Doree. Partially cheating today due to doing half of it on the bike. Had to take it easy on my ankle. Over all did 4km jog. Weather was so so, Birdy album and Florence + The Machine play in my iPod. Check my tracking map point 1. to 4. is on the bike then round a lake jog and then back on the bike. Great using the Nike+ GPS and Path application. Managed three likes on Facebook and one checking my track on Path. Since I’m kind of “likes” addict. This definitely boost my enjoyment from jogging lol. If my ankle is fine tomorrow there i will be on my old track again at Jardin des Plantes. Lets connect on Facebook.

Your Heart

Posted: June 9, 2012 in jogging, Le coeur pour la vie

Image Thru my posting I’m not only informing you about certain subject, but I’m also and more importantly learning about the subject myself. In my case learning is my driving force, it always was and it always will be. Thru learning I became experienced masseur, specializing in Sciatica problems, thru learning I became experienced in natural therapies, and thru learning I’m becoming experienced in medical issues regarding our heart.

Heart is a strong muscle about the size of your palm.”The Heart Keeps your body running” You cannot possible live without taking good care of your heart. Weather it means good diets, active daily routines and regular checks. Heart keeps pumping oxygen-rich blood through a network of blood vessels called arteries (taking blood away from the heart) and veins (bringing blood back to the heart).Some changes in the heart and blood vessels are normal as you grow older. But over time, disease can damage your blood vessels and your heart.

  • Are you overweight ?
  • Do you smoke ?
  • Do you drink lot of alcohol ?
  • Are you avoiding Exercising ?
  • Do you have diabetes or high blood pressure ?
  • Do you spend all day sitting at the desk or on front of television ?
  • Are you under a lot of stress ?

If you answered yes to more then two of these questions, then you should definitely looking into changing one or the other to make your heart pumping for better life.Early heart disease often doesn’t have symptoms; that’s why regular checkups with a healthcare provider are important. Your doctor will check things like cholesterol, a fat that can add to plaques in your arteries, and your blood pressure. He might also do a blood test for CRP (c-reactive protein). You might also have an ECG or EKG, an electrocardiogram. This is a test that looks at electrical activity in your heart.

Things that should be taken dead seriously;

  • Pain in the chest, shoulders, arms, neck, jaws or the back!
  • Weak or numb feeling on one side of the face or body
  • Dizziness, headache, shortness of breath,Vomiting
  • Tiredness, and swelling in the ankles, feet, legs, stomach, and neck

Learn the warning signs of a heart attack. If you or someone you know might be having a heart attack, call an emergency number of your country right away. Only fast acting and getting yourself or the persone next to you to the hospital can save the life.Always call an AMBULANCE !!


  • Try to be more physically active
  • Reduce stress by learning to meditate, try Yoga for example
  • Quit all of the above, smoking, drinking, overeating on fast food
  • And start running with me for “Le Coeur Pour La Vie”

In the days of Gadget booms, smart phones and androids, is as easy to download applications and keep a track of your Jogging activities and compare to your followers vice verso. I highly recomend Nike+ GPS in combination of Path.

See you on the Track by Jiri Saidl
