More speed, less pain
Tuesday November 6, 2007
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. The potential for feeling foolish is high, but what I actually feel is a great sense of joy. I've been running for 18 years but it has never felt this easy and, well, bouncy.

Focus, say experts, provides the best shot at achieving lasting goals in a health and fitness world littered with delusions, injuries, overtraining, plateaus, fads, burnout and shortcut reasoning like, "more is better."

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.)
