Get ready now if you want to run marathon later

By TARA DOOLEY

Dec 15th, 2007

After months of training and hundreds of miles run, the Chevron Houston Marathon - or Aramco Houston Half Marathon - is almost here.

Tracie Selman is ready to run. Now.

Unfortunately, there's about another month before she'll line up for the start of the Chevron Houston Marathon.

So for Selman, the key is to stay ready: remaining healthy, clear about her goals and mentally prepared for race-day.

Why Your Health Club Sucks

By Lou Schuler

Nov 27, 2007

Paul Scott, one of the brightest guys writing about health and fitness for magazines today, has a terrific takedown of the health-club industry in the current issue of Best Life. Paul and I have emailed off and on for the past two years, and I know this is a subject he's been pursuing for a while. In particular, he's asked a lot of questions about the predominance of exercise machines, as you can see in this passage:

Are you a lonely long distance runner?

by Richard Irvine-Brown

16 November 2007

Hello again, all.

I'm Richy, and I'm an interactive journo for Auntie. I've been keeping a weekly diary of training for, and chat about, the London Marathon, each week links back to the previous one.

From previous weeks' suggestions, I've got a spin class booked for Monday, and I'm getting a go with the heart monitor - please send advice as to how to use the thing, what I should and shouldn't be doing, what I'm looking for, etc. Please check BobbyNads' suggestions at the end of
last week's comments. Alternatively, the gym guys have told me to just subtract my age (28) from 220 and work at 80% of that figure.

I'm also booking an appointment for an osteopath or chiropractor (to write-up on here soon), what's the difference? And what do I need them for?

This week I'm asking: Are you lonely? Are you looking for a partner?

Brain Limits Scope of Athletes

Gina Kolata

December 11, 2007

Bill Morgan, an emeritus professor of kinesiology at the University of Wisconsin, likes to tell the story, which he swears is true, of an Ivy League pole vaulter who held the Division 1 record in the Eastern region.

His coaches and teammates, though, noticed that he could jump even higher. Every time he cleared the pole, he had about a foot to spare. But if they moved the bar up even an inch, the vaulter would hit it every time. One day, when the vaulter was not looking, his teammates raised the bar a good six inches. The man vaulted over it, again with a foot to spare.

Does cross-training help you run?

by Richard Irvine-Brown

23 November 2007

Hi all,

Thanks for all the comments over the previous weeks, on the recommendation of several of you I had a look at runnersworld.com. I hadn't been deliberately avoiding it before but it seemed so popular that I willfully searched for the more obscure training plans and tips on the web instead.

The first week of their 'very hard' schedule seemed to dovetail with the programme I'm committed to right now (in terms of total mileage and longest run per week), with the addition of bringing cross-training into the regime.

Keep running this summer

Ronald Abvajee

Summer is here! It's the season that brings the opportunity of good weather and long days ' which will be perfect for maximising your training. Look at it as a great opportunity to take advantage of the improved elements and really get stuck into your training. This is provided you can resist the pull of the evening braais and beer gardens which often get the better of people at this time of year!
