Just a quick post to advertise a research study going on in our lab at Hartford Hospital:

Seeking Active Adults Taking Cholesterol-Lowering Drugs for a Research Study

Hartford Hospital researchers are recruiting men and women over age 40 who train in endurance activities (running, swimming, cycling) at least 5 hours per week and take cholesterol-lowering medications called statins. Participants will perform a maximal aerobic fitness test and a submaximal endurance exercise test on a bicycle before and after stopping statin medications for one month. Participants will be compensated $100 for their time and receive valuable health information, including body fat and VO2max testing. If you or someone you know is interested please contact Dr. Kevin Ballard at:

And, to thank you for your attention, here’s a link to an interesting article in Women’s Health about running too much. Although I’m biased because I was quoted in the article, I think it’s a very well-balanced article detailing the research of exercising versus overexercising.
