Utilize the scenic Tourne County Park to stay in shape this summer

tourne-county-parkWhy go to the gym on a beautiful summer day when you could exercise outside? The Legacy of Mountain Lakes is located just 5 minutes away from Tourne County Park. The park features athletic fields, bike trails, lakes, hiking trails and much more where one could enjoy various outdoor activities with a panoramic view to match . Here’s an easy walking workout that will help you get back in shape with a new outdoor exercise regimen while taking advantage of the natural Mountain Lakes terrain.

 

GO ON A HIKE
You can burn 200 calories in 30 minutes.

Navigating over roots and rocks and along winding or hilly paths can help you melt more fat and improve your agility, balance and coordination.

  • First 5 minutes: Walk along a flat trail at a pace that would make it easy for you to carry on a conversation.
  • Next 7 minutes: Stay on even terrain and pick up your pace so you’re breathing more deeply. (You should be able to talk only in short sentences.) Move at a faster clip for the last 2 minutes of this segment. Your breathing should become more labored, and you should be able to say just a few words at a time.
  • Next 10 minutes: Set out on a hilly trail or rugged path. Slow down to navigate uneven terrain. (If all the trails in your vicinity are flat, alternate between brisk and faster paces for 1 minute each.)
  • Next 5 minutes: Return to even terrain and walk at the same pace you used during the 7-minute segment (you should be able to talk only in short sentences).
  • Last 3 minutes: Continue walking on even terrain at a comfortable pace until your breathing is normal and you can carry on a conversation again.

Trail hiking 101:
Avoid getting blisters and other injuries that could interfere with your workouts.

  • Watch where you walk. Keep an eye on the ground, scanning for loose stones, holes, exposed roots and debris. To avoid slipping and falling, try to step on dull-colored dirt rather than slick, sticky mud.
  • Pamper your feet. To keep feet dry and blister-free, wear socks made of a fabric that draws sweat away from the skin (acrylic, for example, or Coolmax). Besides being uncomfortable, damp socks cause friction, which increases the likelihood of blisters.
  • Get the best boots. Wear lightweight hiking boots or trail shoes for ankle support and more grip when you’re walking on uneven terrain.

Mountain Lakes Trails

old-tournefeaturing Tourne County Park

You don’t have to travel all the way to New York City to see that world-famous skyline. In fact, you would only have to step into your backyard.

The Tourne County Park, with a sprawling 500+ acres, is just begging to be explored. There’s a little bit of something for all levels of adventure-seekers: wildflower trails, bird sanctuaries, cross-country skiing and hiking. Make it to the top of the trail and you will be rewarded with a panoramic view of the New York skyline. Feel like staying closer to the ground? No problem. The park offers charming family picnic sites. There is also a ball field are that can be reserved for group outings, just call the Park Police!

Neil Sedaka Coming to Morristown. Mountain Lakes’ Residents Ready For A Special Treat

neil-sedakaNeil Sedaka is coming to Morrstown. He will be performing at the Community Theatre At Mayo Center For The Performing Arts at 100 South St (miller Rd & Pine Street), Morristown, New Jersey. Next performance is on May 15, 2014. Capacity at the venue is 1200. Doors typically open two hours before showtime – subject to change so please clarify before heading to the venue.
Neil Sedaka is one of the better known artists in today’s Pop/Rock scene, captivating audiences worldwide with his take on the genre.
While modern-day pop music has its roots in rock and roll, it also draws on a multitude of other genres including latin, rock and country music. It began to become its own separate genre in the 1950s when the term ‘popular music’ became pop and was used to describe this new eclectic sound that the masses were favouring at the time. Pop is often regarded by fans of other more original music styles as commercially focused and created to please the masses rather than as an expression of the artist. Big names in pop over the years have included the likes of Michael Jackson, Britney Spears and Madonna.
Rock music developed from rock and roll in the 1950s and today is regarded as a subgenre of pop due to its commercial success with the masses. Typified by the presence of electric and bass guitars and drums, rock music is also influenced by many other genres such as country, folk and blues. From the 1970s on, it became the favoured choice of the politically active and many subgenres developed including punk rock, grunge rock and in more recent years indie rock. Well-known artists of these styles include The Clash, Nirvana and Arcade Fire. For tickets: http://bit.ly/OcG8rm
