Treadmill hill training

David Holt

Treadmill machines allow you to set the grade and decide on the length of the hill you will run. No need to run downhills during the recovery. Your recovery can be close to the speed which you were running up hill.

An excellent beginning selection for both the explosive and the endurance runner would start out with a dynamic warm up similar to this sequence.

In the world of running, there are some basic terms for basic elements of training. One such term you might run into often is tempo run, and believe it or not, it doesn't mean running to the beat of your favorite JT song.

Brain gym' may exorcise Boomers' fears about aging

Heidi Benson

Thursday, December 13, 2007

Marathon-happy Baby Boomers, those 78 million Americans born from 1946 to '64, were the first generation to make a religion of physical fitness. Now, they are investing time and money to maintain what's above their six-pack abs and rippling biceps: their brains.

"People are living longer, and they want their brains to keep up with their bodies," said Lisa Schoonerman, who is on top of the trend.

The Cornerstones of Training

The 'cornerstones of training'. Here you will find the basics behind the development of a good training regime that will benefit your running - Dave Spence

Athletic training and competition are complex activities, with many variables contributing to success.

These cornerstones eventually determine how successful your training will be, whether for the 100m sprint, shot put, middle and long distances or ultra-marathons. The cornerstones are moderation, consistency and rest.

Learning the value of VO2 testing

December 16, 2007

ENERGY IS THE key to life, and runners need lots of it. I got a chance to find out just how much energy I have, and how much I burn.

Eva Rosvold, owner of Fundamental Fitness Personal Training Studio in Frederick, recently began offering resting metabolic rate testing and anaerobic threshold testing, better known as VO2 max testing.

Runners are generally obsessed with numbers. They count the miles they run each week. Many of us know our personal records from 5K to marathon. As we get older, we may not be setting PRs, but we know where we should be when we run a race. Some runners even time workouts to better gauge their training.

The Need for Sleep

Dave Spence

In the past decade research and polls have shown that we don't get enough sleep. Those under 35 years of age get the least amount. This lack of slumber time leaves many chronically tired and sleepy throughout the day.

Many report that they limit sleep in order to fit more activities, especially late-night TV watching, into their day. The usual plan to "catch-up" on the weekend is ill-conceived-the human body doesn't work that way.
