Health and fitness are not the same

DREW HARVEY

Nov 14, 2007

Few would argue the fact that regular physical activity has been shown to reduce the risk of certain chronic diseases, including hypertension (high blood pressure), stroke, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, colon cancer and osteoporosis in addition to improving one's quality of life.

According to the Canadian Society of Exercise Physiology, to reduce the risk of chronic disease, it is recommended that adults accumulate at least 60 minutes of moderate-intensity physical activity on most, preferably all, days of the week. At this point you are likely wondering how you could possibly perform 60 minutes of physical activity consecutively, let alone find a free hour in your busy day.

Several magazines, sites fuel the passion

by Gary Droze

Nov 14, 2007

Last week, one of my runners' parents asked for advice on choosing a running-related magazine as a holiday gift for his youngster.
After congratulating the parent on the idea - running magazines can inform and inspire readers of all talent and experience levels - I addressed the options. Perusing area newsstands, one might conclude that Runners' World and RunningTimes comprise the only options for those in the market for a running periodical. Not so.

Up a level

Written by Andrew Seeley, Runner

My grand plan for building my aerobic foundation is based on the Hadd method of running two key workouts per week at or near (meaning below) the Lactate Threshold (LT) with the rest of the mileage at paces that allow for recovery and volume. One major difference from a previous try at this method is that I am using this program to build my foundation only. Once I complete the program, I plan on a more intense program designed to add 'power' and stamina and peak my conditioning for a marathon. I have left the date of the Spring marathon TBD in order to account for any changes in the basic outline.

Some physiologists question parts of brain-training theory

BY SARAH TUFF

Monday, November 12, 2007

If Matt Fitzgerald were your coach, he would have you running against the grain. Squat jumps would be a weekly must: Crouch down. Leap into the air. Repeat.

To increase your running speed, he occasionally would have you deliberately pound the ground to prevent overstriding. And, every once in a while, he would recommend doing an extra-long run without ingesting Gatorade or energy gels.

Training isn't everything

Over-training can lead to life-long damage

The L.A. Marathon participants will soon begin training for this year's round. The 26.5 mile route will be filled with runners, joggers and side-line supporters, all of whom want to experience that communal feeling of doing something for the greater good.

Not to be over looked, however, is the fact that everyone participating really does train. They train a lot.

Training, competing with GPS: Small devices popular among runners,cyclists

8th Nov 2007

After a race through 15 miles of rock-laden, hilly trails in Wyandotte County Lake Park, Byron Rieper went online to discuss the competition with other runners.
Many already were sharing their experiences online. Some blamed heat and humidity for their slow times, others recalled unforgiving hills. Rieper, a seasoned marathoner and cyclist who lives in Overland Park, used his watch to offer them a detailed look at the course.

Runners benefit from weight-training program

By Amy Donaldson

Oct. 18, 2007

I am a creature of habit. It's not that I don't like to try new things. I just really love my comfort zone.

Nowhere is this more evident than in the way I train. I have been working out essentially the same way for about 12 years. I did a weightlifter's workout on my legs about twice a week, usually on days I didn't run or when I was running less than three miles. I rarely work my upper body and, in fact, hadn't worked my back since I ran my first marathon in 2006.

For runners, weight loss can be addictive

By DAVID PURDUM

Published on: Nov 02 2007

Studies have shown most females fear becoming fat more than they fear dying.

According to the National Institute of Mental Health, an estimated .5 to 3.7 percent of females will suffer from anorexia and 1.1 to 4.2 percent will suffer from bulimia.

But what is the link to cross country?

Long-distance runners often share personality traits with people suffering from eating disorders, said Dina Zeckhausen, a psychologist and co-founder of the Eating Disorder Information Network in Atlanta.

To run a marathon, you first should walk

By Janet Cromley

November 5, 2007

In the 35 years since he ran the 10,000-meter in the Olympics, he has trained an estimated 250,000 runners through his clinics and written more than a dozen books on running. (The newest is "Galloway's 5K/10K Running," released last month.)

He spoke to us by e-mail from Aachen, Germany, where he was conducting training clinics for local marathon and half-marathon runners before heading off to the Athens Classic Marathon in Greece.
