Race for Life training tips
2 May 2006
ACCORDING to running clubs, there are more women than ever pounding the pavements in Suffolk. So if the London Marathon or the forthcoming Race for Life have inspired you to join them, don't do a Jade Goody - who trained just four times and fuelled her running with curry and beer.
1 Running burns more calories than any other exercise
Why? Fast running burns more calories than slow running, but slow running burns more calories than just about any other activity. In short, nothing will help you to lose weight, and then keep it off, the way running does.

Avoiding shin splints
By EUGENIE JONES
It's that time of year again. More people are moving outdoors to jog or walk, but with the uneven surfaces, worn-out shoes and poor warm-up/stretching habits, some of us are experiencing a few aches and pains.
Jeff Cairns from Detroit, Michigan writes, "Eugenie, I enjoyed your column on walking and running. I jog, and occasionally I develop shin splits - any suggestions?"
Jeff, you're not alone in your ailment. Characterized by pain, aching and sometimes swelling of the front lower leg, shin splits are one of the most common injuries among runners and walkers. The anterior tibialis muscle, the origin of all this discomfort, connects at the knee and runs down the front of the lower leg and to the ankle.

Need a running route? Click before lacing up
May 10, 2006
Portland runner Torrey Lindbo plans to visit Eugene soon to try out some of its legendary running routes, like Pre's Trail, the Amazon Trail and the Rexius loop.
And all he needs to plan it all out is an Internet connection. A couple of clicks on his computer will provide Lindbo with directions to the unfamiliar trails, their mileage and an idea of the terrain he will encounter.
Lindbo, president of the Team Red Lizards running club, turns to an interactive Web page by U.S. Track and Field that provides maps, measurements and comments on running routes across the country. The Web page (www.usatf.com/routes), which uses Google Map, launched in late 2005 and has a growing database of about 20,000 routes, submitted by everyday runners.

May 8, 2006
By Jenn Turner,
Introduction A problem that long distance runners and triathlete's often complain about involves the Iliotibial band. Often coined Runner's Knee, or iliotibial band syndrome, this injury can present as lateral hip or knee pain. The most common symptoms of Iliotibial band syndrome or ITBS, usually includes a burning pain on the outside of the knee or hip about 20 minutes into a run. Often the pain subsides after a run, but as the injury worsens, the pain can be constant. Many runners get very frustrated with this injury

The metatarsal mystery
By Paul Rodgers
07 May 2006
You put one in front of the other. You put them up. You don't mean to put them in your mouth, but you do. And, oh, the pain when they break...
Sam Singh is shaking hands with my foot when he tells me I've got an arthritic big toe. "See, you've only got 30 degrees flexion and it should be 90," he says, wiggling the offending digit. What can be done about it, I ask? He lets go of my foot and mimes a hammer hitting a chisel, an eager smile spreading across his face. All I can think of are the workmen I'd seen outside the hospital, chewing up the pavement with pneumatic drills.

Exercise Related Transient Abdominal Pain - Runner's Stitch
Runner's stitch, or runner's cramp, is an injury that nearly every runner has experienced in the midst of or after a training session. Although this pain affects approximately 60% of competitive runners (2) and also other athletes (4), there has not been much scientific research conducted on this topic. The anatomic mechanism of the stitch is poorly understood. However, there are several anecdotal-only suggestions regarding stitches available on the Internet and in running/athletic magazines. More scientific testing in this area is needed as it affects a large number of athletes.
