Getting into running shape

By KATHY PORTIE

Before taking the plunge and running that first marathon, there is a lot of planning involved. Training, nutrition, clothing and equipment are all on the list of things to learn about.

But before going through all that, check with a doctor to see if a marathon is in the future or walking along the Alpine Pedal Path is more your speed.

Shorter training sessions good bet

By Black, Eddie

Early distance runners would train by running and then running some more. A typical training regimen for a marathon would include training six or seven days a week and running up to and over 100 kilometres.

That approach led to many runners experiencing injuries and fatigue that led to time away from the sport.

Through exercise science, we have found distance runners can more effectively train with less running distance and avoid many of the overuse injuries associated with running more than 100 kilometres per week.

Training tips from those who don't stop

By KEVIN TRESOLINI,

Boston Marathon qualifiers remain motivated in winter

If long-distance running is the loneliest sport, the isolation and solitude must be at their greatest in February.

But those training for a spring marathon, such as the 112th Boston Marathon on April 21, have to press on, through the cold and limited light and at a time when the race must seem far off but maintaining fitness is paramount.

Cardiovascular Conditioning: Alternatives to Swim, Bike, Run (Part 1:Deep-Water Running)

February 1, 2008

By Karen Buxton

If you do not have the luxury of living in an area where year-round outdoor training is an option, or you just hate training in the cold or snow, look beyond the normal treadmill and trainer routines to help you maintain your fitness. An important aspect of your offseason training is variety, and by including alternatives to your winter training, you can avoid the boredom often associated with training indoors. Some indoor options are: deep-water running (also known as aqua-jogging), elliptical trainers, stair-climbers, and rowing ergometers. For those athletes who are fortunate enough to have warm-weather options during the off-season, these indoor alternatives also can and should be incorporated into your winter training plan, as well as throughout your entire season.

What do you need to run in?

by Richard Irvine-Brown

01 February 2008

Richard Irvine-Brown is a BBC Sport journalist in training for the London Marathon. He also keeps an interactive training diary on BBC 606.

Hi again, all.

Thanks for all the suggestions for people who inspire you. I'm trying to get a few words with some elite runners and ultra-marathoners, keep an eye out.

After a few months complaining about blisters, snot, and sore nipples, Tom Fordyce finally did the charitable thing for the office and put me in contact with a man who really knows his kit.

Five reasons to add walking to your running routine

January 3, 2008

Runners tend, for the most part, to share this view on walking: It is fine when conducted at church, the grocery store or after surgical procedures. Otherwise - nah.

Well, Runner's World editor Amby Burfoot has run about 100,000 miles in the last 35 years. He now uses walking as part of his training (heretofore referred to as R/W, as in run/walk). Here's why you should, too.
