Exercise special.

I am addicted to parkrun.  I’ve written about it here in the BMJ and you can find out more here . The SPARKLE studies are here and here. The parkrun community are warm and welcoming and new runners/joggers/walkers are always welcome.

Links to research I was talking about today

NHS guidelines (which I think are too complex and confusing)

Exercise in older, frail people, systematic review,  and Otago (strength and balance training) in older people, systematic review (  death 1 year 2.89% in  exercise group vs  5.31% in control group).

of benefit for people with COPD,
people with type 2 diabetes.

Review in Postgraduate medical journal – which included ‘exercise’ as e.g. housework, gardening.
