Dealing with injuries

by Jennifer Gill

December 1, 2008

There are times in a runner's training when they have to skip a run or two due to a busy schedule, an unexpected event, or simply because they want to.  Then there are times in a runner's training where they are forced to skip runs. They're injured.

Injuries are very hard for many runners to deal with, for a number of reasons. While some runners actually look forward to the little break for a welcome rest, others completely freak out.

10 common running mistakes

November 10, 2008

by Jennifer Gill

Sometimes we hit a wall in our running.  And I'm not talking about the "Wall" you always hear about when you're training for a long distance race and you deplete your energy stores.  No, this is a much bigger wall.  This is when you're running is just not feeling right, things are just not working for you and you're at a loss.  Maybe you're injured.  Maybe you've lost your motivation.  When you get to that point, it's important to take some time to check in with yourself to see if you've been making some of these common running mistakes.

Does cross-training work?

By: Dr Bridget Farham

10 Nov 2008

With tri-and duo-athlete events gaining in popularity it is reasonable to suppose that there is something to be said for cross-training, even if you don't see yourself actually competing. If you are a pure runner, cyclist or swimmer, can cross-training help you?

There seem to be conflicting ideas. Some authorities say that you should train exclusively for your sport, others see benefit in cross-training. Unfortunately most of the scientific studies carried out are on untrained people, so it's difficult to hypothesise on the effects of cross-training on elite athletes.
