    Twenty miles with walking breaks equals 20 miles run continuously…at any speed (but you recover faster with walk breaks). Forget about speed on long runs. Focus only on the component of endurance. You can’t run too slowly on the long runs. Run at least two minutes per mile slower than you could run that distance on that day accounting for heat, humidity, etc. The day before the long run should be a no-exercise day.

  • CORRECTING FORWARD LEAN – by becoming a puppet on a string

    Jeff Galloway
    8 Sep 2014 | 6:08 am
    Create a mental image during the form drill of yourself suspended from the very top of your head by a giant string (as if you were a puppet). The effect is to lift you upright – head in line with shoulders and hips and everything lined up with each foot as it assumes the body’s weight. A good puppet image also helps you to stay light on your feet. The first effect of being a good puppet is to have your body line up without any tension – you’re in balance. Walk around with the image of the puppet on the string until you feel relaxed in this upright position. Then start running slowly.
  • Running and Joint Health

    Jeff Galloway
    1 Sep 2014 | 5:36 pm
    Running does not predispose joints to arthritis. Dan Wnorowski, MD, has written a paper which reviews research on the effects of running and joint health. He believes that the “majority of the relevant literature during the past decade” on this topic finds little or no basis that running increases arthritis risk. Wnorowski goes on to say that a recent MRI study indicates that the prevalence of knee meniscus abnormalities in asymptomatic marathon runners is no different than sedentary controls.

    A Forex exchange plays a vital role in every market and every world economy.Travelers around the world know the practicality of this. Most world countries use their own individual currencies as the main medium of trade within its borders. To trade goods and services in the U.S, one has to have the U.S dollar. International trade is necessary because no nation is self-sufficient. Some countries need raw materials to service their industries while others need finished products to aid in the production process.

  • Short Long Run

    14 Sep 2014 | 7:33 pm
    I ran & walked 10 miles today, my longest run in quite a while and my "long run" for the next marathon, three weeks hence. We ran on the Gateway Trail, where I have experienced two of my recent three hamstring injuries.  No injury today!  I would like to do a longer long run, but there isn't time.  From now until the marathon I will do shorter runs, hoping to avoid any more injuries.I hope to finish in less than six hours, so here's my calculation: If I were to walk at a pace of 15 minutes per mile, that's four miles per hour, and in six hours I would get to mile 24.
  • Three Miles Running

    24 Aug 2014 | 6:56 pm
    Walking and running, that is.  Again we went out early, to avoid the muggy heat.  I did my 1 to 3 run / walk, this time 3.17 miles on the paved trails, in 40:11, for a pace of 12:41.  That's slightly slower than two days ago, but still plenty fast enough to finish a marathon in six hours even with nature breaks.No complaint from the injured right hamstrings today, or from anywhere else for that matter.  No whining!So the plan now is to run every other day, doing an easy 1 to 3 run/walk like this, but gradually increasing the distance.  On the alternate days, or many…
  • Doctors

    23 Aug 2014 | 6:39 pm
    Friday, August 22, 2014:I did a 1 to 3 run/walk today, just 2.07 miles like Wednesday.  This time the right hamstrings ached just a little for the first minute or two, then went silent, cooperating fully.  That's a good thing!2.07 miles in 25:48, pace 12:28, equivalent to a 5:27 marathon if sustained.  Considering nature breaks and maybe a chat with a spectator or two, this would be a good pace for finishing a marathon in six hours.I saw the sports doctor today, to discuss the recent frequent hamstring injuries.  He thought that the Levaquin was still a possible…
  • Not Running Yet

    18 Aug 2014 | 5:53 pm
    I rode the bike a little easier today, for 7.35 miles in under 40 minutes.  I timed one loop at 4.73 min/mi, or about 12.7 mph.  Two days ago I thought that pace was "fairly hard," but today it didn't seem hard.  I guess my bike muscles are becoming conditioned, or I'm learning how to use the gears to better advantage.I'd rather be running.  Maybe I'll try it tomorrow.  Short, slow, easy.
  • Still Riding the Bike

    17 Aug 2014 | 6:18 pm
    I ran just a few steps this morning, enough to assure myself that the right hamstrings still hurt and I shouldn't try a real run.  Back on the bike.  I do like the bike; it certainly helps with cardiopulmonary training even if it doesn't really do much for running muscles.I rode exactly the same route as yesterday, two 3.53-mile figure-8's, once in each direction, splits of 16:01 lap 1, 16:09 lap 2, for a total of 7.06 miles in 32:10, pace 4.56 min/mi, or 13.2 mph.  That's slightly faster than yesterday, but I felt a little more tired at the end.  I did a lot of yard work…

    Training got real in August.My long runs were longer and my overall mileage climbed higher than it has been in years. I committed to running more in the morning and that's what I did. I had an awesome race/long run in mid-August and ran some strong workouts. I also had just about the crappiest long run ever -- Sunday's 20-miler.Sure, I got it done. But, man-oh-man if it wasn't hard.I don't know exactly what it was that caused my problems, all I know is that the run did not work for me. I cramped after eating my energy chews and felt like I was going to throw up for most of the rest of the…

    After focusing on marathon goal pace miles for the last few weeks, I decided I would run Yasso 800s yesterday. I wanted to test myself with some speedwork to kick off the week. My plan was to run 8 Yasso 800s, which requires me to run them at my goal marathon time, converted to minutes. So, 3:50-ish (my goal is 3:52).If you're not familiar with Yasso 800s, here's a page that explains how they work. I warmed up for about 3/4 of a mile and then took off running. I ran each 800 with a rest lap in between, where I jogged 400. Here's what my laps looked like:Lap 1: 3:47 Lap 2: 3:45 Lap…

    Saturday was the day of two runs. My main goal was my 18 mile marathon training run. But it also happened to be the day of the Clove Run, a local 10-mile race that I've run for the past few years. I really enjoy the race and was even the top female finisher back in 2011.This year, I decided to sandwich the race in the middle of my 18-miler. I figured it would be a good opportunity to test out my marathon goal pace over an extended run. Plus, I'd get to run 18 miles in a race atmosphere.I started out by running 2 miles by myself and then hooked up with Elisa and Bridget for a mile. Bridget had…

Then, apparently, I turn into that strange being that is the early morning runner.And I don't mind it -- mostly. So odd, right?Now, I usually do all of my long runs in the morning and some other runs as well. But when I've done those long runs, they've been at fairly civilized times. 7:30, perhaps. Or 8:00. Times that allow me to sleep until at least 7. Nothing crazy.On Friday, though, I had 16 miles on…

    Summer is drawing to a close, at least from a calendar point of view, there is no break in the weather around here although all things being equal we have had a pretty mild summer! Not surprisingly August became a run focused month with my training for Santa Clarita Marathon, starting on August 4. So the tally for the month went like this; 24 workouts in 28:02:27 for 180.61 miles Run 23 workouts 27:02:28, 161.99 miles…yes, there is no rounding up! Bike 1 workout 59:59, 18.62 miles Obviously a significant bump in run miles, my previous biggest month this year was 91 miles so I am getting…
  • SCM Week 4 (Step Back)

    31 Aug 2014 | 11:28 pm
    This week was a step back. It’s pretty standard practice to build for 2 – 3 weeks and then step back to rest and capitalize on the gains. The fact that it coincided with the kids going back to school and my Birthday was also a bonus and having the extra time during the week was nice. So this is how it shook out; Monday. Off. With the Bulldog 25k on Saturday my Back to Back run was on Sunday Tuesday. 5 miles. Ran this as a pyramid. I am enjoying throwing in some simple speedwork like this and getting my splits into the early 7s is very rewarding Wednesday. 3 miles. Easy run on the…
  • Review; Yurbuds Inspire Pro

    27 Aug 2014 | 5:29 pm
    Kit usually can be categorized into two buckets; stuff you wear (shoes, clothing etc) and stuff you use (water bottles, GPS etc). There are, however, some things that fall into the very thin gray area in between, headphones…to be more specific ear-buds are one of those items. Clearly it’s a thing you use but you need it to fit your body otherwise all end of problems can arise! The folks at Yurbuds hit me up to see if I wanted to try out a pair of Inspire Pro in-the-ear headphones. Becca is a huge fan and has been using them since she picked up a pair at the Portland Marathon in…
  • SCM Week 3

    25 Aug 2014 | 10:08 pm
    This was a big week, last build week before Week 4 which is a step back, it was skewed as it actually was 6 runs when normally I would have 5. That being said I am not having any issues from the volume and hopefully it will remain that way. This is how is broke down. Monday. 5 miles Recovery. Nice and easy around a local loop. Tuesday. Off. Wednesday. 7 miles easy. Should have been 6 but rounded the time up to an hour and hit 7 in total. Thursday. 6 miles easy. Nice and chatty with Becca at 5am. Friday. 5 mile pyramid. Happy with this, was working for sure but pleased to see a low 7 minute…

    16 Sep 2014 | 6:16 am
    Hi! How’s it going? Over here it’s 100 degrees. That didn’t stop me from running, it just stopped me from running at a decent pace. This is an egg sandwich. I ate it. (This is some quality writing up in RERland, I hope I get a Pulitzer for this post.) After breakfast I realized I had the worst bloody knee and I rushed to grab my purse and head to the Emergency Room for stitches!!!! I freaked out until I realized it was really Sriracha. True story. And just when I started to get hungry for lunch I got a great delivery… Tina sent me an Edible Arrangement and it made my day!! I’ve…

    15 Sep 2014 | 11:54 am
    Hello! How’s it going? I’ve been having bad dreams about cats fighting and breaking glass and it cutting me and all that jazz. It’s less than fantastic. The good news is I am up bright dark and early to run!   But early morning running is DARK. And scary. (Oddly, I’m scared of the dark but not of making a fool of myself on the internet. I should get my priorities straight.) Anyway. On Friday I ran before the sun was up and wore my headlamp. I got some questions on what headlamp I wear to run. This one is actually pretty fancy! I got it as a gift for Christmas and it’s…
  • The Infamous Hummustard Salad Dressing Recipe

    15 Sep 2014 | 7:37 am
      This post brought to you by Sabra Dipping Co, LLC.. All opinions are 100% mine. Years ago I made hummustard salad dressing for the first time. It’s name gives away 90% of the ‘secret’ recipe = hummus + mustard. Oh, hummustard. Just like me, it’s not fancy. And also like me it’s kinda orange. And like me it’s changed over the years as I’ve gotten older and wiser and more aggressive with the Sriracha. But the OG version was a take on honey mustard salad dressing and that’s what I have for you today – a sweet, creamy honey mustard style dressing that’s super easy to…

And catching up with my best friend Saturday night Aaand discovering this ridiculous drink Viniq. It’s shimmery and purple and tastes good straight… which means it’s probably wildly dangerous because it goes down so smooth. Technically this isn’t Purple Drank, but Cin kept calling it that and I randomly found it hysterical. It tastes like a flat grape soda kinda sorta in a way. I hear you can make fancy mixed drinks with it, but we tried it straight up. I…

    16 Sep 2014 | 6:06 am
    And we're back! What a weekend of fun we had at The North Face Endurance Challenge Wisconsin 2014, more colloquially known as ECSWI. Friday we picked up the RV and headed over to the campground at Ottawa Lake Recreation Area, a beautiful location for this weekend of trail races. While we love tent camping, there are definite advantages to the RV: heat or AC, a fan for white noise, an actual (sort-of) kitchen, and beds rather than cots or sleeping pads. If only it weren't so expensive compared to tent camping - still, it's a nice treat once a year or so and the perfect way to spend this…

  • MAF Training Week 1 1/2

    10 Sep 2014 | 5:03 am
    It's been a real pleasure to start running again. Starting up again, I knew I wanted to limit my runs to 3-4 times a week, so I wouldn't overdo it, and I knew I would follow the Maffetone Method of heart rate training, since it had been successful for me in the past.  Not that it's been easy, especially damping down my ego and walking when I exceed my heart rate, which has been a lot! I've been trying to include as much as trail running as well, because it's really where my heart lies, so that's an added bonus - nothing like a run/walk in the woods to start off a day right.Even…

    Hard to believe next weekend is the The North Face Endurance Challenge in Wisconsin - this is one of my favorite events to do, not just for the awesomely run events, but that we make a whole family weekend of it. It's been a few years since we last did it, but the whole family still remembers RV camping, running, and spending 3 days at the campground with fond memories. This year Tazer and Gaigai will run their first races there (we don't count the Karno's Kids runs, as they are so short) - the 5K should be a lot of fun, though I doubt if the kids will wait for me so we can run together. Oh…
  • Recommended Reads: The Great Outdoors

    4 Sep 2014 | 5:02 am
    I'm a huge fan of mysteries and the great outdoors, so it's always good to find a combination of the two. Since I live in an area that is pretty much completely removed from true wilderness, escapist time via a good mystery novel set in the outdoors is a favorite for me. Even better is a series of novels that take place somewhere remote. I've recently been reading 2 series that fall neatly into this category, written very well and open a window to worlds I rarely see. Mike Bowditch (Paul Doiron's protagonist) is the sometime-Maine Game Warden who, while wrestling with his past, his job, and…

  • One Epic Summer

    Dax Ross
    2 Sep 2014 | 4:23 pm
    A year ago, this week, I hiked and ran through the Sierras on the John Muir Trail, and I'm sure that I used the word epic more than once. It felt like every time I took my camera out, that I was taking a picture of something epic, and each night when I wrote in my journal, I wrote about something that I considered epic. That word has become overused, and has lost a lot of its meaning. When I think about the John Muir Trail now, and what I was doing a year ago, it was really just a lot of slow walking and some light jogging through some amazing scenery. There were some difficult passes at high…

In fact, I already messed up pretty bad today.My wife took the Jeep in to get the oil changed (which ended up being a $500 trip for changing all the fluids and an engine tune-up…I’m sure glad they sent us that $24 oil change coupon).

    We moved to San Elijo Hills in 2005. At the time, I was training for triathlons and just starting to get into trail running. One of the things that drew me to the area was the extensive trail network. I started with the wide, manicured paths that led to the schools and grocery store, then as the distances grew, I became more adventurous, covering more trail miles and discovering an amazing network of beautiful trails surrounding our dense suburban neighborhood. The wilderness was outside my door, and it became my playground.Early fires on Double PeakIt has been a particularly dry year in…

    It's been a long time since I last raced. I'm pretty sure that the the ill-fated 2013 Miwok 100K was the last time I pinned a freshly crumpled race bib to my shorts. I hadn't signed up for any races this year, but thanks to my friend Chris, who won an entry to the Leona Divide 50K at a charity auction and somewhat uncharitably donated the entry to me, I was racing whether I liked it or not. Chris, by the way, ran the 50 miler and had a great race. He ran right through the finish line and kept going, running into some chairs and a couple of helpful bystanders.I was very happy with my training…

    It’s not uncommon that I see a coyote during a run, but it’s still infrequent enough that I get excited when I see one. I usually see them trotting in the other direction, nonchalant, having already seen or heard my heavy footsteps, not sprinting off scared, more of a saunter, an “I’m faster than you, and I don’t want to be too close, but I don’t need to run very fast either” retreat. I’ll watch as they disappear into the bushes. And even though it takes seconds for me to run to where the coyote left the trail, and the brush isn't very thick, I usually can’t see them, as if…

  • Be a butter burner

    14 Sep 2014 | 10:10 pm
    Gels have their place, but not a big one for me When I went to the Healthy Running seminar a couple of weeks ago, Dr. Mark Cucuzzella talked to us about the difference in being a “butter burner” or a “bagel burner.” His point being that many runners don’t train their aerobic system to the extent that they should and thus can’t effectively “burn the butter” for fuel. In other words, for endurance events, it’s very useful to have an aerobic base that utilizes mostly fat for fuel. Why do we want to be butter burners? Because we all have…

Our coach, Liz Flynn, never told us the workout in advance. Nor did she write it up on the white board like most swim coaches. Instead, she verbally handed it out to us in sets. At the beginning of these sessions, we would split the workout about 50/50 between drills and the actual main set. As we progressed, however, the drills became a…

  • Icebreaker New Zealand review

    I’ve probably mentioned before that I tend to run on the hot end of the spectrum–as in, I get hot easily out there running. I’ll never be the most bundled up runner on a cold day and I’ll probably be the first into shorts and a singlet each spring. I just plain old overheat easily. So wool hasn’t been a part of my wardrobe, whether it be for running gear or day-to-day wear, in quite some time. I’m learning, however, that some wool has come a long way. Icebreaker New Zealand recently sent me some merino wool pieces to try. I looked over the web site, read…

    19 Aug 2014 | 6:15 am
    We’re very excited to introduce you to Sylvia Cruz, an inspiring run commuter and passionate active transportation advocate from São Paulo, Brazil. The 29-year-old environmental manager only began running three years ago, but it had a major impact on how she sees the cityand interacts with others around her. Further, it inspired her to educate and encourage others to join the ranks of those who not only run, but run as a form of urban mobility. She started Corridaamiga, or “running friends,” as a way to connect experienced run commuters with those interested in using running to…

  • Save the nips: Red11 Sport anti-chafe salve review

    6 Aug 2014 | 2:28 pm
    I, like so many, have since my first tentative steps as a runner dreaded this happening to me. During an out-and-back segment of my first ultra, 24-ish miles into a grueling 50K, a runner in the opposite direction had upon his face not fatigue but wide-eyed fear mingled with agony. I understood why. Upon his white shirt: twin red streams trailing toward his waistband. And he had six more miles to go. Bloody nipples. Nipple chafe (clinically: nipple fissures). Hell, chafe in general, as Meghann writes, in any of the body’s geography. Every runner harbors this terror in the heart and the…

    Welcome Wyatt J Woiderski to this wide, wonderful world, and congratulations to Rebecca and Josh on what we’re all certain will be another rad kid! Closer to home, this means Josh will for a short while take a back seat at The Run Commuter, as he tends to his ever-expanding stable of sons, and consoles Rebecca for having to dwell in Fort Sausage Fest. It also means Hall and I will be stepping up to take on Josh’s usual duties at the site, so you can expect a good deal more salty language. Will this papoose fit in a run commuting pack??   The post The Run Commuter’s…

Yep, you are not alone.Runners are a warm, caring, sharing group, but often when we begin to feel doubt about our abilities, we hold this info within. So, know you are not alone.

    Interesting observation....last night when I was around mile 8 in a 13-mile run, I really began to fatigue. I was feeling every foot landing as if my feet were cement blocks. So, I began to coach myself telling myself what I tell my runners... to look up and out, not down. Engage your core. Shoulders back. Work the lean.While looking up, I noticed some thick fancy concrete posts with wrought iron fence in between the posts that line the front of a swanky neighborhood on the route I was running.  I was curious. How many posts were there? Funny what you think of when delirium kicks in. I…

    Next up in the 2015 running shoe preview series via is Salomon. The two shoes we’ll take a look at here are the S-Lab Sense Ultra 4 and the S-Lab X-series. Salomon S-Lab Sense 4 Ultra I just recently reviewed the Salomon Sense 3 Ultra - one of my favorite shoes of the year so far. Light and fast, like a racing flat for the trails. Looks like the Sense 4 Ultra will have a more breathable mesh on the upper (breathability was one of my few complaints about the 3), and an updated lug design.

  • adidas Adios Boost 2 Review: Same Great Ride, Different Fit

    Peter Larson
    15 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    The Adios is adidas’ distance racing flat. It’s a shoe that can be found on the feet of many of the top elite adidas sponsored marathoners, and last year they released a version with a midsole composed of their recently introduced Boost material. I’d heard a lot of positive praise for the shoe from friends, and despite the fact that it had a higher drop than I typically prefer in a speed shoe (10mm), I wound up loving the ride. In fact, along with the New Balance 1400v2 and Newton Energy, the Adios Boost was one of my top 3 road shoes from 2013. The Adios Boost had a perfect combo of a…

    I finally wrote up my review of the Hoka Clifton this week, and I have to say that the experience of running in the shoe was an interesting and thought provoking one. Even if the shoe wasn’t the best match for me, it’s one to look at if you want a lightweight shoe with max cush. Fits me much better than other Hokas I’ve tried on, and the rockered sole makes for a unique ride There’s also been a lot of commentary on my post about the just-announced Apple Sport Watch – the lack of integrated GPS makes the watch less desirable for me as a fitness device, but as a devoted iPhone user I…
  • Tips on Running Safety For Women

    Austin Bonds
    11 Sep 2014 | 6:00 am
    by Austin Bonds I’ve come to the realization that running safety can be easily neglected in the middle of a great run. The weather feels fantastic, the feet are moving swiftly across the sidewalk, and the beat of a favorite song is pulsing through the ears. We run and we return home – it should be as simple as that. Sadly, this is not always the case. As a resident of Georgia, I recently read about Tina Waddell, a runner who was brutally beaten on the Silver Comet Trail (which runs from Georgia to Alabama). As of this writing, the suspect has not been located; no motive is known…

    The big news yesterday was Apple’s announcement of two new iPhones as well as the Apple Watch. Like most people, I’ve been eagerly anticipating the announcement of the Watch since rumors have consistently hinted at a slew of fitness-related features. Done well, the watch had the potential to be a game changer in the fitness tracking market. I’ve spent the morning reading through a lot of the press about the Watch release. In many ways Apple did not disappoint – the Watch in general has a ton of interesting features, and on the fitness front it has a built in optical…

    Shut Up + Run

  • My Knee Hurts

    15 Sep 2014 | 3:07 pm
    Well, crap. You know how people tell you, “running ruins your knees,” and you scoff at them and tell them to shut the eff up (in your head of course)? I have a personal story for you. It is short and not very sweet. At the end of the 5K Color Me Rad run on Saturday I felt pain in the front of my left knee. I ignored it because runners know that pains come and go all of the time and unless it recurs, it usually just disappears, kind of like socks in the dryer or stomach pain after a good fart. (One note about the color run no one tells you. You will be blowing black/brown snot out of your…

Do you all have these in your town, or is Longmont just a superior-ass city? Basically, a home owner can set up this little book house in front of their home. Others can come to take and leave books as they please. You all know I love the library, so I am REALLY loving this new fixture on our street. And, you don’t need a card. And, there are no late fees. 2. This bread. I will admit that the only reason…
  • Giveaway! Color Me Rad Denver Race Entry (x4)

    9 Sep 2014 | 5:21 pm
    Confession: I’ve never done a color run. I didn’t even really know what one was. Then I spied on my daughter’s summer bucket list and guess what showed up? (She never did sleep on the trampoline, by the way. And, now we sold it). I have since learned that a color run is where the runner gets blasted with color bombs while they run. The Color Me Rad people’s catch phrase says it all: When the Denver Color Me Rad people asked if I wanted to join in the fun on September 14, I was all over it, but only if I could bring Emma and her best friend. Another cool thing about this race is that a…

So, here are some scenes from our weekend in Richmond where we participated in the very special Speak Up 5K. We flew Southwest. I took this picture over Atlanta. If I didn’t make so much money blogging, I’d be a professional photographer (with my iPhone of course). The part about making so much money blogging was a really, really major joke.

She had a heart condition that had not been previously identified. Mile 6 of the race Cameron was the niece of my dear friend Clair.

    Coach Jeff
    15 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    I can still remember a time when foam rollers were the latest novelty in training rooms across the country. Using one in public usually got you quite a few stares. Nowadays, foam rollers can be found almost everywhere you look – gyms, physical therapy clinics and on the living room floors of most runners I know. And that’s great because, unlike many training fads, foam rollers actually work! Plus, as they become more ubiquitous, new runners are introduced to the awesomeness of foam rollers every day. However, just like any other effective training or recovery tool, it is possible to use…

    One of the simplest concepts of successful long distance running also seems to be one of the hardest for many runners to grasp. Running easy helps you race faster! If you are invested in your running, it is important to run with a purpose each and every time you step out the door, even on easy days. In this article, we’ll look at the purpose of different types of workouts, how easy runs fit into the training puzzle, and why keeping them slow is essential to staying injury-free and running faster.

  • Can Altitude Masks Really Replicate Altitude Training?

    John Davis
    8 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    Wouldn’t it be great to get the benefits of living and training at altitude without having to uproot your entire life? One way to do that is with an altitude tent, which uses compressed nitrogen gas to thin the oxygen in the air to replicate high-altitude living in a tent-like shroud around your bed. Aside from the obvious drawbacks of a claustrophobia-inducing plastic canopy, altitude tents are also extremely costly—upwards of $10,000 for some models. So unless you’re a pro runner with a big contract from a shoe company, tents are out of the question too. But recently,…
  • How Donating Blood Impacts Your Training and Racing (And 4 Strategies to Mitigate the Impact)

    John Davis
    2 Sep 2014 | 3:00 am
    There’s not much that’s more essential to your running (and your life) than your blood. The more oxygen-carrying power your blood has, the faster you can run. Without enough oxygen, your body is quickly plunged into acidosis, the deep burning sensation in your legs that you feel at the end of a race or a hard workout. Doing anything that would decrease your body’s oxygen-carrying potential would be crazy right? Well, maybe not if it can save somebody’s life. Donating blood is an admirable endeavor—according to the American Red Cross, over 41,000 blood donations are…

    You’ve picked out the race, booked your hotel, and confirmed your flights. Everything is ready to go for your next big race. Now it’s time to set a time goal so you can get training! If you’re like most runners I coach, picking your goal time is a somewhat arbitrary process. Usually you pick a goal designed to get you under some barrier like two hours for the half marathon, four hours for the marathon – or to qualify for a specific race (Boston being the most common). While this seems reasonable – after all, how critical can selecting a goal time be – I believe setting a time goal…

    Women, by nature, have a higher body percentage average than men and they are better at building fat depots to aid in child bearing. Not only do men and women store fat at a different rate, they also store it in different areas of the body. Females store fat around hips, legs and butt, whereas males mainly gain weight around their midsection.

What followed was a boring rant about how I hate nationalism, patriotism and all of that shit.

    This is my first day off from the gym in 3 days. I hadn’t went at all up until Sunday afternoon when I did 25km on the stationary bike. The equipment they have down in Tottenham Easygym is pretty fucking impressive for the price. I’m paying £18 a month without a contract in London and the gym is only 3 minutes walk down the street. Last night I did a 10km on the treadmill in 48:50 and it was pretty fucking difficult. I haven’t sweated that badly before. It was flying off my face and body onto all of the other machines and I could swear that people were rushing to get the…
  • A Superb 18 Mile Long Slow Run Through Hertfordshire And Back Into Tottenham.

    23 Aug 2014 | 2:10 pm
    Today I travelled by train up to Ware in Hertfordshire. My plan was to run back and hopefully complete a long run of over 18 miles for the first time in nearly a month. I’m delighted to say that I managed it and this week is shaping up to be one of the best for running in a while. In total it took 2:55 to run 18.17 miles through the Lea Valley Navigation towpath at a 9:39 minute/mile pace. It’s the first time I’ve ever ran a negative split on an 18 mile run. In truth at the end I probably could and should have kept going but I was starting to become a little bored by the…

    11 Sep 2014 | 3:43 pm
    After my disappointing race last weekend, I’ve been doing a lot of thinking about my running. A LOT of thinking. I was having a hard time wrapping my brain around the fact that I need to run a marathon at a certain pace, but I couldn’t even do it for the half the distance last Saturday. Quite honestly, it had me in a bit of a panic. I mean the sick to my stomach, tears in my eyes, hyperventilating kind of panic… I felt like I’ve been spinning my wheels for 10 weeks and have gotten nothing out of it. I’ve since come to my senses and know this isn’t true.

    Back in Utah now and happy to be home for a while!   We are still exploring our local area, and discovered this little gem of a trail not too far up the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon.  Officially this trail has the name of Mill B South Fork Trail, but that's a mouthful and everyone calls it Lake Blanche instead.  Which is the biggest of the three lakes at the end of the trail, I would guess. Either way, it's a nice 2500 foot climb from the trailhead up to the lakes.  We weren't quite acclimated to the elevation yet, and when the gradient steepened I admit to sucking some…

  • Do Beginner Runners Need to Consider Technique?

    James Dunne
    10 Sep 2014 | 11:40 am
    There are a number of questions I’m often asked regarding running form. Sometimes these come direct from athletes, sometimes from fellow coaches. I was reminded of one such question recently: Do beginner runners need to work on technique, or should gradually increasing volume of running naturally allow a new runner to develop their own style? Here are my thoughts As with most things in the health and fitness industry, the polarised answer at either extreme is invariably the wrong answer!

    I was going through some of our archived video footage last night when I came across this slow motion footage recorded by Neil Scholes during his time with the Kenyan Olympic Team ahead of the London 2012 Olympics. Neil recorded a number of their simple warm-up drills ahead of a track session… What I really like about this video is that it brilliantly demonstrates the combination of a few key factors we look to look to develop in the vast majority of the athletes we work with. In particular: Range of Motion at the Hip – ‘Running: It’s all in the Hips’ Ankle…

    Developing Stability & Strength in Runners As many readers will already know, my personal sporting success came long before I developed an interest in endurance sports and running in particular. For a number of years I played Rugby Union full-time: a sport where we as players become somewhat obsessed with developing strength and power. Now with the benefit of hindsight, I can see that this has probably moulded the terminology I use today when talking with endurance athletes about their own rehab or training. I often catch myself talking to runners about the need for them to strengthen…

This won’t come as news to many athletes, but I enjoyed his explanation. The point that really hit home was his bullet stating: Requires patience that most athletes do not have How true that is…!
  • Maintain Running Cadence Under Fatigue on Race Day

    James Dunne
    31 Jul 2014 | 3:10 pm
    There are so many sources out there providing the standard technique advice of increasing running cadence (stride frequency) to help stop athletes from over striding, and amongst other things helping to increase in limb stiffness. Many of these sources suggest 180 strides per minute as being a good rule of thumb for ‘optimal cadence’… However, in reality optimal running cadence will vary from person to person, and improtantly from pace to pace within one individual athlete. As with anything else running form related, there is no ‘one size fits all’ solution. More…
