Train to the VO2 max

July 30 - 2007

VO2 max describes your body's ability to transport and utilize oxygen as an energy source during exercise. It is also known as aerobic capacity.

The V stands for "volume" while O2 is the chemical notation for oxygen. VO2 max, also known as "maximal oxygen uptake" can be expressed in many ways (from liters of oxygen per minute or the more normalized milliliters of oxygen per kilogram of bodyweight per minute). It is a way to not only compare the performance of endurance athletes, but is also a relative indicator of overall fitness.

Runners should always listen to their bodies

August 14, 2007

JACKIE MIRON

Alberto Salazar, 48, is known widely for his running successes, winning the New York City marathon in 1980-82 and the Boston Marathon in 1982.

Currently, he coaches elite runners at the Nike Training Center outside of Portland, Ore., a stone's throw from his alma mater, the University of Oregon.

On June 30, Salazar experienced dizziness and neck pain while walking with his runners to the field for a workout. The athletes immediately called 911 while watching in fear as the running icon turned blue. One runner ran for help and several medics and staff were there to assist right away. Onlookers administered CPR before the EMT's arrived and used a defibrillator. It took four shocks of his heart for him to begin breathing.

In the Heat, Think Like An Eskimo

August 12, 2007

by Jim Hage

Just as Eskimos have proven to be the hardiest workers in the extreme Arctic climates that face Alaskan pipeline workers -- they possess no superior physical gifts but simply maintain realistic expectations about the demanding conditions -- runners can adapt to a few weeks of hot and humid weather.
