Cross training can help you beat the hot summer heat

By Moe Johnson

August 25, 2007

It will only be a couple of months before the weather cools down and it will be easier to run longer distances and faster times.

But in the meantime it is still a little harder for a runner to do those good training runs when the temperature is up there and the humidity is still at times like a sauna bath outside. This is a good opportunity to try some cross training with the main purpose to improve and actually be a better runner afterwards.

Fit in the City: Taking the right steps to running

August 21, 2007

Bob Proud of Irving describes himself as the ultimate nonrunner. He smoked three packs of cigarettes a day in his 20s.

"There wasn't a physical education class that I couldn't manage to avoid," he says. "I bowled once a week. I thought that entailed physical fitness."

His philosophy changed in 1982 when his boss invited him to be part of a corporate relay team at a 10K race.

Mr. Proud, now 57, ran his 2-mile leg at the El Paso Crime Stoppers event without too much discomfort. He's been running ever since. Without that opportunity to be on a team, Mr. Proud says he, never would have taken up running.

Learning to run properly is key to running longevity

Mark Sutcliffe

August 19, 2007

If you're like me, you dread the day when you won't be able to run any more. Stories about persistent injuries forcing runners permanently into less jarring sports like swimming or cycling make me cringe. Will I be one of the lucky ones who gets to run for years without sustaining a career-ending injury, like those 60-plus marathoners I envy so much? Or will the cumulative effects of all that pounding send me prematurely to a life of lane swims four times a week?

I don't mind swimming and cycling, but they don't give me the satisfaction or enjoyment -- the high -- that running does. Still, is all the hammering leading me irretrievably to the day when I won't be able to run any more? It doesn't have to be.

The runners' edge: High altitude lets runners naturally increase

August 19, 2007

DOUG BINDER

More than ever, elite runners and endurance athletes around the world are going to the mountains to breathe thin air and train their bodies to deal with stress.

The physiological benefits, when done correctly, are enormous and can mean the difference between contending for an Olympic medal or failing to make the finals.

In preparation for the IAAF World Championships that begin Saturday in Osaka, Japan, Portlanders Galen Rupp and Adam and Kara Goucher recently set out to reap the physiological benefits of high-altitude training. To do so, they joined their coach, Alberto Salazar, for three weeks of workouts at 8,000 feet.

Altitude training can trigger responses that produce more red blood cells in the body and, in turn, boost athletes' endurance and performance.

Marathon Training Tips: Week 12  - Foot care

Megan Mawicke

Aug 16, 2007

One of the greatest challenges of the marathon is not necessarily finishing the race, but getting to the starting line with uninjured and happy feet.

'The most common injuries we treat are overuse injuries,' said podiatrist Dr. Stavros Alexopoulos. 'Heal pain, arch pain, and pain in the ball of the foot.'

And Alexopoulos knows all about feet. He was one of three podiatrists chosen to treat athletes at the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
