Speed and smarts

I’m a much faster runner than a few years ago — and it turns out that I’m smarter, too, or at least a better learner (but let’s just say super duper intelligent…).

See, a study from UCLA conducted on mice found that running and learning use the same brain waves. The pattern of these brain waves are controlled by attention and learning, but they’ve found that they’re also governed by how fast you’re running. The study found that when the mice ran faster, there was a spike in these brain waves.

More incentive for speed training :)

(and I seriously need these Nike Free+ 2 in this colour — hot!)
