Shoe business: how to find footwear that fits

By BARB BERGGOETZ

May 11, 2007

If you're bewildered by racks of athletic shoes lining store walls, it's not surprising. But the right shoe is a must for those training for marathons or playing a sport, running or just walking for exercise.

"If you have a shoe that fits improperly or is worn out, you put yourself at risk for fatigue-type injuries," says Dr. Michael Shea, orthopedic surgeon at Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital.

That could mean stress fractures, tendinitis, nerve injuries and shin splints - all painful.

How to get fit by using your mobile phone

By Graeme Paton

11 May 2007

Gone are the days when phones were simply for talking. Today, they can be used to watch television, browse the internet, take pictures, play games listen to music and now even help you get fit.

Yesterday, a computer programme was unveiled which allows joggers to use their phones to record how far they have run, the route they have taken and their speed.

Run for fun, fitness the smart way

Doctors in the House

by Peggy and Terry McDannold

It's a big weekend for running in Kentucky and Ohio. Saturday is the 133rd running of the Kentucky Derby. And Sunday, Cincinnati hosts the Flying Pig Marathon. Having spent a lot of years in Louisville (we graduated from the U of L School of Medicine), we always follow the Derby. We both like to run, too. Terry has run a marathon and Peg ran a half marathon a few years ago. We've done many other shorter races over the years. We run for cardiovascular fitness and another excuse to be outside.

We've both been lucky never to have experienced a serious running injury. But running can be dangerous for both horses and humans. Just last year we watched the awful injury to the Kentucky Derby winner Barbaro in the Preakness. Every year 35 to 40 percent of runners (human kind) sustain a running-related injury.

One form of training won't get you in shape

By Robert Haddocks

May 7th 2007

I picked up a new client last week. His name? Alex Rodriguez. I'm serious. OK, so it's not that Alex Rodriguez, simply known as A-Rod. But my client does share the name with the slugging New York Yankee and he is a former scholarship baseball player, even if it was nearly 30 years ago. Alex is a sturdy, 47-year-old runner who is looking to build some core strength in hopes of running a marathon early next year. Alex runs up to 9 miles three or four times a week. But he couldn't finish our initial workout, one that included bodyweight exercises and nothing heavier than 3-pound weights.

Newtons putting physics to work for runners

by Brian Metzler

May 7, 2007

Danny Abshire has always looked at runners' footsteps a little differently than most.

The Boulder footwear guru has made custom insoles for top-level triathletes and marathoners and dabbled in new shoe designs for more than 15 years. This spring, with the help of business partner Jerry Lee, a local real estate developer, he has unveiled an innovative line of shoes aimed at helping runners move more efficiently.

The four lightweight models of Newton Running shoes utilize Sir Isaac Newton's third law of motion - for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction - by capturing a runner's impact on the ground and releasing it as maximal forefoot propulsion.

Out-of-shape people can hit the ground running

Judy Foreman

April 20, 2007

This week, Larry Haydu attempted something that most people would have assumed was impossible - and perhaps even unadvisable. Haydu, 56, who was almost completely sedentary until last summer, ran in the Boston Marathon.

He and 11 teammates --- all exempted from having to qualify for Monday's race --- ran as part of an experiment dreamed up by exercise physiologists and nutritionists at Tufts University and NOVA, which is making a documentary on the project that will air in the fall.

The idea, said Miriam Nelson, a Tufts nutritionist, three-time Boston Marathoner and the project's chief scientific consultant, is to see whether totally out-of-shape people, some of whom also have chronic diseases and weight problems, can reverse the health effects of decades of inactivity.

10k: One week to go

May 4th

Can - and should - I cram in last-minute training?

It is always tempting to try to squeeze in a few extra runs in the week prior to the Glasgow Women's 10k. Perhaps you feel as though you have not trained hard enough in the preceding weeks, or you believe you might gain an advantage by pushing yourself through a couple of last-minute sessions.

This is not the case.

"Everyone's training programme should taper towards race day and in the week prior to the big day, and less is definitely more," says personal trainer Iona Robertson.
