Many aren’t familiar with the term brown adipose tissue (or brown fat) but recent studies from Harvard Medical School have brought this interest to the mainstream media. Brown fat, once thought only to be located on infants and hibernating animals has now been found on adults. The tissue’s main function is to maintain body temperature and can be activated and seen through PET-CT scans after the individual has been exposed to cool temperatures.
Quieting the quitter in us Last year my client started out with a 6 month goal of running a mile. We started with slow jog intervals of only 30 seconds at a time, with 2 minutes of walking to recover. Four months later she ran her first 5k. It was tough. This past November she ran her first 10k and placed top 10 in her age bracket- a non-runner! By her last race, she was running intervals almost the full mile at a time, recovering for only a minute or so.
