The average human running speed

According to a massive RunRepeat study based on over 34 million race results, the average running times are:

  • 35 minutes for a 5K
  • One hour and two minutes for a 10K
  • Two hours and 14 minutes for a half-marathon
  • Four hours and 26 minutes for a full marathon.

We should keep in mind that the data is collected from race results. It doesn't mean every runner is racing or running as fast as they can.

Aging is inevitable, so why not do it joyfully? Here’s how

Chewing gum: the Mayans and Aztecs

Chewing gum has been around for hundreds of years in the form of chicle, a resin obtained from the sapodilla tree in southern Mexico and Central America.

Long ago, the Mayans and the Aztecs knew that by cutting the bark, they could collect this resin and create a chewable substance from it. The Mayans cooked and dried it into "cha" to quench thirst and prevent hunger. The Aztecs used it as a breath freshener but viewed public gum chewing as unacceptable.

According to the National Sleep Foundation, adults need 7-9 hours of sleep a night. People who sleep seven hours a night are healthier and live longer. While the guideline is helpful, you are the best person to judge how much sleep you need.

A shift in our health behaviors
  • Researchers found the pandemic and resulting lockdowns caused people worldwide to change their health behaviours, cut back on physical activity and eat more comfort foods. Anxiety levels increased while sleep became disrupted.
  • The researchers also found that most people became more sedentary and gave in to their food cravings, such as sugary snack foods. People classified as obese gained more weight and had the largest declines in physical activity.

Your Body is a Clock

Around 30 to 50 percent of people sleep between the hours of 11 pm and 7 am. Another 40 percents are either slightly morning people or slightly evening people.

To understand why some people are early birds while others are night owls, we have to take into consideration the body's circadian system.

If you're just not a morning person, science says you may never be

Nobody sleeps the whole night through

This is a common misconception.

Also, waking up a few times per night is not necessarily a cause for concern. The most important thing is how you feel when you get up: refreshed, ready to take the day or confused and unable to function?
