Injuries common among cross-county runners

Jan 19, 2006

By Charnicia E. Huggins

Theirs may not be a contact sport, but high school cross-country runners are not exempt from injury. In fact, injuries are quite common among these athletes, new study findings show.

"The results from our study suggest that the injury rates of high school cross country runners continue to be consistently high, per athletic exposure (i.e., actual runner participation in a practice or meet), especially for girls, and that the causes of running injuries are likely multi-faceted," study author Dr. Mitchell J. Rauh told Reuters Health.

Have You Peaked?

By Patrice Malloy

January 11, 2006

Have you reached your lifetime performance best? Has your running peaked? Can you ever exceed your past personal best times, or, in the stirring parlance of the sport, PR? How do you know? If so, what's next?

Everyone who has ever raced, from 5Ks to marathons, has a tale to tell. Although an inaugural competition can be a very gratifying experience, there are often negative side effects ? abdominal maladies, blisters, etc., etc., etc. Newcomers in the sport often blithely overlook these irritating nuisances and are primed to enter another race as quickly as they consume the finish line party beer. Running oftentimes is a quick addiction.

Marathon Training Tips for Beginners

JANUARY 13, 2006 05:19

About 5,000 first-time full-course marathon runners will participate in the 2006 Seoul International Marathon and Dong-A Marathon that will be held on March 12.

Dong-A Ilbo will post a training schedule for beginners designed by national marathon hero Hwan Young-jo every week until the race.

Hwang is a big name in Korean marathon circles. He ran in the 1992 Barcelona Olympics marathon and won a gold medal with a time of 2 hours 8 minutes 9 seconds. Hwang is currently teaching a masters-level marathon class.

Online coaching help grows in popularity

Bonnie LaFleur has plenty of things to say about her running coach.

He's smart. He's experienced. He's got a good approach.

Oh, and one more thing: He's 860 miles away.

For a little over a year, LaFleur has trained with coach Greg McMillan. Although LaFleur lives in Nashville and McMillian works in Austin, Texas, the coach has helped her become a more successful and motivated runner.

It's all thanks to the Internet.

Cross Training Benefits Runners!

Paul Greer

January 13, 2006

Exercise can provide a total body tune-up. It can strengthen the heart, bones, muscles and joints. It can enhance cardiovascular fitness, build muscle, reduce body fat and improve flexibility. In my opinion, cross training is critical if these gains are to be met. Recent Entries

In cross training, two or more types of exercise are peformed in one workout or used alternately in successive workouts. A distance runner in training may also lift weights twice a week, perform daily stretching exercises and participate in high intensity spin classes once a week.

Runners try to keep mind from racing

Odeen Domingo

Jan. 13, 2006

If you offer Michelle Andreas a cup of her favorite coffee on Saturday and she says no, don't be offended.

If you ask her to hold your water bottle for just a second and she says "no chance," don't hold a grudge.

If you ask her to dinner and she turns and walks away, do not be troubled. advertisement

The clock is ticking down to Sunday's P.F. Chang's Rock 'n' Roll Arizona Marathon & 1/2 Marathon. There are things she just doesn't do before a race.

Andreas, 30, who is running the half-marathon, is the self-proclaimed "biggest OCD (Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder) person before a race."

"There's a reason why I'm single," she said.

For many marathon participants, elite or not, the last 24 hours before race day is even more excruciating than the past months of I-can't-believe-I'm-doing-this training. The torment is unbearable.

Take a break from running to heal

Mary Beth Regan

Jan 6, 2006

Question

My husband, a runner, has been sidelined by plantar fasciitis. What's the best way for him to stay in shape?

Ouch. This question hurts.

Plantar fasciitis is an injury to the thick band of tissue that stretches from your heel to your toes on the bottom of your foot. Sometimes the tissue tears. Other times, it ruptures, causing serious arch problems.

Runners dread this common injury, in part because it usually means you have to stop running for at least a couple weeks. To some, that's akin to doing time in the Big House.
