When the ball dropped and the glorious year that is 2012 began, I had one goal in mind. Getting more exercise. 28 days in and I have yet to spend more than 5 minutes of my time on cardio. But with the help of this infographic, being a healthy and sexy marathon runner is looking a little more attainable.

Included in this infographic is a marathon training calendar. This twelve week program could get you in healthier shape and even marathon form. The internet is full of training videos as well, like this one. I was using this infographic primarily as a week to get back into shape, but if you’re more of a competitor, there’s also a calendar of upcoming marathons this year.

To all of you wishing for a healthier lifestyle, I’m there with you. Get off that couch, draw up a workout schedule, and lace em up! [Via]

SOPA & PIPA Explained [infographic]

Continuing with the theme of my post on Monday on the protests to the SOPA bill, click here if you haven’t seen it, today’s infographic actually explains the bill. One of the biggest problems of the bill is the wording, surprisingly it is vague and allows for misinterpretation. What a surprise, legislation that can misinterpreted. Ultimately the argument remains that the internet should remain free of government intervention, it seems almost 1984ish to think the government could censor the internet. Enjoy today’s infographic!

The Local Web [infographic]

I can barely remember my life without the Internet or a time when the yellow pages had a use. The World Wide Web has become a mirror image of real life as establishments and individuals take advantage of the endless online marketing opportunities and develop a presence online. Heck, it seems like every business has a Facebook page for you to “like,” every restaurant has a Yelp.com profile that allows word of mouth to go viral, and every activity has had at least one clever Groupon offer.

Today’s infographic emphasizes how a localized online presence affects a business’s growth, suggesting that utilizing social media, businesses are able to cultivate greater customer loyalty. [The Local Web]

Pick Your Poison [infographic]

Happy Tuesday! While Tuesday isn’t the most exciting day of the week, as it is just after Monday and very far away from Friday, hopefully today’s infographic will inspire you to take a mid week break for a little fun! Maybe hit up a happy hour, perhaps dollar beer night at Cain and Ables if you fall into the beer loving category or House Wine for you wine-o’s (both local Austin establishments).

This post gives an interesting insight to American adult alcohol preference. As someone who is around a lot of drinkers most of the time, I feel that I could have accurately predicted some of the information presented, which is not usually the case for my infographics. For example, I would have guessed that more females prefer wine and more males prefer beer. I also would have guessed that midwesterners prefer beer, and I can say that as a midwesterner. I am a bit surprised that liquor remains in third place in every category. Well infographers, pick your poison and bottoms up! [Via]

Wikipedia’s Blackout [infographic]

I doubt most of you don’t already know this, but last Wednesday Wikipedia shut down for the day along with reddit and others in protest of SOPA and PIPA. These two bills are supposed to stop the online pirating of music and movie. Unfortunately to do so would be a censorship of the internet and threatens several of our favorite sites, Megaupload being one of the first victims, having been shut down recently. It is scary to think that the government can come in and change the internet, what would Ron Swanson think?

If you are interested in learning more about these two bills you should Google it, unless they are no longer allowed to display the results. [via]
