The Physiological Secret Behind Tempo Running

By Paul Greer

September 25, 2008

For the past 23 years of coaching I have seen great results from athletes with respect to tempo running training. Tempo runs are excellent for developing stamina, confidence and sense of pace.

Small gains best way to add distance

26th Sep 08

In the past few weeks I've had several emails about training for summer events, but two in particular were so similar I thought it was a conspiracy.

It saved on the response time, though, because I was able to send them the same reply.

Here's one of the letters: "My partner and I are thinking of doing the 10km Mahana run. We have been jogging for the last month or so and are jogging about 4km three times a week (unless pouring with rain) on the flat."

And the other: "Do you still have running training schedules you can email? I have been running for a couple of months and would like to do a 10km run in November and the Buller Half in February."

Don't bust your gut

Despite claims made on the cover of popular fitness magazines, there is no quick and easy way to get rid of excess belly fat.

So before you embark on a gut-busting fitness program in an attempt to whittle away everything that hangs over your belt buckle, consider the real facts behind achieving abs worthy of gracing a magazine cover.

Eat, drink and your run will be merry

For competitive and recreational runners, fall is race season. It's time to put a summer of training to the test on race day. While there is plenty to think about -- the right shoes, the weather or a nervous stomach that might act up at an inopportune time -- it's equally important to learn how to fuel your body for your best possible race.

SIMPLY FIT

By Kelly Gonzalez

August 27, 2008

One of the most important parts of exercise is making it a habit. It's easy to make a habit of something you enjoy. If you like to walk around the neighborhood for 30 minutes as your exercise of choice you are doing great things for your body, including reducing your risk of disease, improving heart and lung function, and strengthening muscles, bones, and joints. If your goal is weight loss and you've noticed that the scale isn't budging, your body may be trying to tell you something. The body relies on progressive overload. If you walk at the same pace for the same amount of time for every exercise session you're body is saying, "I don't have to work any harder to perform this task." Going for a leisurely walk can reduce stress, give you more energy, and clear your mind, but if you want to burn fat, tone and improve your level of fitness, I suggest using the F.I.T. Principle to break through the plateau.

Training, fitness, recovery, the importance of rest

5th Sept 08

Here's something to think about: training does not get you fitter.

Something else to think about: the more you train the less fit you become.

So why train? Simply because it is the recovery from training that gives the gains.

There is a growing movement amongst some runners to abandon shoes and go barefoot.

These runners point to famed two-time Olympic marathon champion Abebe Bikila who ran barefoot as well as famed-Olympian South African Zola Budd.

The scientific approach

By LYNNE BERMEL

March 9, 2008
GPS shoes, heart rate monitors, hyperbaric chambers ... even amateur athletes are going hi-tech

Faster, higher, stronger. There is no question that today's top sports performers are getting there with the help of emerging technologies, modern medicine and revolutionary training methods.

But it's no longer just Olympians and professional athletes accessing the latest advancements in sport. It's come down to the everyday athlete looking for the edge to improve his or her golf game or run a faster marathon.

"No question the science of sport has reached down to the recreational-level athlete," says Ken Parker, founder and coach of the Ottawa Athletic Club Racing Team who has been coaching runners for close to 30 years.
