WHEN YOU ARE VERY TIRED, RUN FASTER
May 18th, 2006
by Owen Adnderson
Partial Article (Running Research News 22.1)
One of the key, defining moments in running is that point during a race at which we suddenly feel an intense urge to back off the pace, to slow down in order to ease the discomfort we are feeling. It is very easy to give in to this impulse, to let the feelings of fatigue stall our efforts.
The most-successful runners generally have very effective ways of dealing with fatigue during races.

Quality fuel powers good runners
By Leo Babauta
When you become a runner, your body is a machine that needs fuel. When you become a marathon runner, that fuel must be high-octane to power the higher demands put on your machine of a body.
Well, maybe not all of us have a well-oiled, well-tuned machine of a body yet, but nutrition is still one of the most important things for runners to consider when undergoing any training program.

From overtraining syndrome to omega-3, IU research
Psychological clues to athletic overtraining syndrome.
Competitive athletes who undergo hard training can become their own most formidable opponent when mood disturbances such as clinical depression -- caused by an intensive training regimen -- bring their competition and training to a halt for weeks or months. Coaches and exercise scientists have known for decades about overtraining syndrome -- also called staleness syndrome -- but have yet to discover a way to detect the condition early on when treatment is simpler.

By Linda Buch
May 7, 2006
Q: My niece, a fitness trainer, told me to have the VO2 Max test done so that when I work out I am working at the level that gives me the most benefit for fat burning. She also suggested visits with a nutritionist.

Exercise withdrawal can cause depression
My 24 2006
People who exercise regularly start feeling depressed and fatigued after just one week of forced inactivity, a new study shows.
Those who were in the best shape experienced the greatest loss in fitness when they stopped exercising, and also showed the worst negative mood symptoms.
Ali A. Berlin of the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, Maryland says she is not sure that the results would apply to a person who was skipping workouts of their own accord, perhaps to do something fun. "I think future research is needed to really answer that question."

Runners promote jogging backward
By DANIEL YEE
May 25, 2006
Timothy "Bud" Badyna has broken world records. He ran a marathon in under four hours. He finished a 10K race in 45 minutes.
Wait a minute, you say, that's not so fast.
Right. But Badyna set those records running backward.
Badyna, dubbed "Backwards Bud" by fellow runners, holds the Guinness World Record for fastest backward run in a 200-meter race (32.78 seconds), set in 2001. In the early 1990s, he held the record for backward marathon (3 hours, 53 minutes) and 10K (45 minutes, 37 seconds).
Those records have since been broken. So the 39-year-old hospital nurse from St. Simon's Island isn't the only one who turns his back on traditional running. About 500 people in the United States - more in Europe - walk or run backward. Experts say it burns a fifth more calories than traditional jogging.
"Your balance increases. Your hearing increases. Your peripheral vision increases," said Badyna (pronounced Ba-Deena).
