Think you can go the distance? Running a marathon isn't for the weak of heart - or legs

By Kyra Kyles

July 7, 2007

Some do it for the bragging rights. Some do it to help a cause. Some do it to get into shape. Whatever their reasons, 40,000 runners from around the world sign up each year for the LaSalle Bank Chicago Marathon, which already is full despite the fact that organizers allowed for an extra 5,000 registrants this year.

It may seem like those athletes have plenty of time to train -- the marathon isn't until Oct. 7 -- but most marathon participants started training for the 26.2-mile run over a month ago, according to local running experts. If you're a casual runner, or worse yet, a couch potato, who thinks you can jump into a marathon at the last minute, think again. This type of endurance event is no way to whip into quick shape or win cool points among your friends and co-workers.

Just ask Kevin Ching.





Pacing, talking, heart rate and making the 10K distance

Pacing, talking, heart rate and making the 10K distance

By Moe Johnson

July 10 2007

One of the early problems with runners when they start out is that they seem to be out of shape and begin breathing hard and think that running is not for them. What happens in this case is that a person has been at a resting heart rate and when they begin running the body demands more oxygen and the heart rate picks up to meet this demand. The body takes a while to get up to pace and must step up the pace a bit to catch up. In order to catch up a person has to breathe faster and harder to make up the increased demand on the systems needed for running. Things in the body like the heart and lungs and muscles that need to catch up with more oxygen than they did when you were resting. The person thinks that they are out of shape because they are so out of breath after only a short distance. A parallel can be made to race cars that take several laps to get up to speed and warm the engines and tires up for a fast speed.

Summer's no time to stop exercising

By ROBERTA MACINNIS

July 4, 2007
Experts offer helpful hints for training during hot, humid season

The motivation to run can be hard to summon this time of year. It's hot and humid, uncomfortable for exercise. Setting a goal and working toward it isn't appealing, and the race calendar is mostly blank, anyway.

What to do?

TRAINING TIPS

Brooks

As runners, we search constantly for the point in our running and training where everything is just right. Trying to find the point that is "just right" is a constant concern.

This is easier said than done. Most of us believe that if a little of something is good, then a lot will be even better. Whether it's running or trying a new diet plan, nearly all of us will go from one extreme to the other before we find the balance point. When we read that there are benefits from exercising 3 times a week for 30 minutes, we believe that exercising 6 times a week will double the benefits.

Training tips for running a marathon

05 Jul 2007

by DPA

Your legs ache, you can hardly breathe calmly - and you are tremendously happy. This is how many marathon runners describe what they feel on reaching the finish line. "The few minutes after the race are the best," remarked Jens Gauger, a sports physiotherapist and running coach from Hamburg.

The marathon distance of 42.195 kilometres is a tough challenge for many casual joggers. Solid preparation involves more than just regular leisure-time running.

Tech on the Run

By Kimberly Hill

5th July 2007

The arrival of like heart monitors, GPS systems and super-portable MP3 players into the consumer market has made exercise a lot more fun and accessible to newbies. Consumer technologies now ease the task of calculating routes and tracking progress. Even the task of figuring out a good mix of workout music can be aided with specially designed Web sites and podcasts.

Years ago, endurance athletes spent a big chunk of their training energy mapping routes, measuring distances and figuring paces. That's because the only way to determine how long and fast they were running or cycling was to drive the distance in the car to establish mileage and then time the workout to calculate speed. Those same athletes would contort themselves to touch their neck pulse points during exercise, the other arm crooked to see a watch and track their heart rate.

Tri-athletes should include weight training in regimen

Keely Dedeo

July 4, 2007

As triathlon season approaches, it is important to remember that athletes need more than just cardio in their exercise repertoire. Weight training is a crucial component of any training regimen.

It is difficult to battle the age-old stigma that runners and cyclists could "bulk up" by adding additional weight which would slow them down. Weight training however isn't about adding weight, it's about adding muscle tissue. Experts define the following reasons to include weight training in your regimen:
