Samsung Steps Challenge: Desert (April)

 

Participants: 1 319 304 (from all over the world)
Place:16 234th (first 2%)
Number of steps: 572 219


In my 20s, I used to run a lot. When I say a lot, I MEAN A LOT!! I'd go for 10 km runs before breakfast. Why? Because running was fun (still is). I suspect that most people who enjoy running don't sit down first to work through the comparative health benefits but instead just put their shoes on and go. As fast as they can. I stopped running when my left knee got busted up. Instead I took up walking (second best game in town).
 
I used to think if I didn't run, really hard, for at least 40 minutes I was wasting time. But after stopping training and putting on weight I decided to walk. Nothing too brisk. More importantly I just felt more relaxed and realised my mind and body really looked forward to those walks.
 
The major dilemma for automobile users who can't be bothered to exercise by walking up to the shops, is whether to walk or run to the car. I think running would prove the more effective in such short distances. For others who are too lazy to go outside at all, it might be good for them to walk or run to the bathroom (after making sure the floor is dry though), or to the clothes-line and back. This could save billions in the cost of treating heart disease (but perhaps more in treating domestic accidents).Anyway, the overall benefits for all lazy people everywhere is potentially massive (bigger than their fat arse).

The free monthly Samsung book

I mentioned in my last review that my phone gives me a free book every month, and someone asked me privately how that happens. I figure others may not know about this either (took me ages to notice it) and it's a nice offer.

 

If you have a Kindle account and a Samsung device of pretty much any kind, and you make a Samsung account (a really good idea anyway, because their "Find my mobile" service is faaantastic and free), you can go to the Galaxy Apps store and download the "Kindle for Samsung" app.

 

Kindle for Samsung is in every other way exactly like the normal Kindle app, except once a month it lets you pick one book out of a selection of four free books offered by Amazon. There's generally a fantasy or sci-fi, a "literary" and a thriller type, and the fourth is often chick lit or women's fiction although it does vary. Most months I look, there's at least one that I'm more or less likely to read.

 

These aren't loans, the books are completely free, lending enabled, Whispersync if it's available, etc. So even if you don't read on your phone, it might be worth grabbing the app there just to check out the books.

 

There's a thread here at Mobileread where you can look back at the kind of books that have been offered, but of the few I've remembered to actually get and read (blame my memory, not the selection) I've been pretty impressed.
