More speed, less pain

Tuesday November 6, 2007

Sam Murphy
A new approach to running, using the principles of the Alexander technique, is claimed to hugely reduce the risk of injury.

I am trotting around Bedford Square in central London like a pony in the ring, steered by a hand on the back of my neck and another on my lower back.

Shortly after completing the ING New York City Marathon in three hours and 26 seconds yesterday, 42-year-old Jeffrey Glaser was thirsty for a few beers. Protein bar in hand, and wrapped in a silver foil blanket, the Austin, Tex., native was also looking forward to a proper meal. "I want to go back to the hotel, drink a few beers, and go out for a hamburger," he said.

Tent provides an elevating experience

By Shira Springer,

October 19, 2007

After the UPS man dropped 83 pounds of equipment on my front porch, I questioned whether I was ready to follow the "live high, train low" regimen gaining popularity among mainstream athletes, particularly NBA players. Why give up the comforts of a master bedroom for an air mattress inside a tightly sealed plastic tent for the better part of four weeks? How would the neighbors tolerate the noisy air-filtering unit? Would the altitude sleeping arrangements long preferred by some world-class distance runners make any difference for an average marathoner? (My personal best is 3 hours 15 minutes 4 seconds.)
