Explosive-strength training improves 5-km running time by improving running economy and muscle power.
Paavolainen L, Hakkinen K, Hamalainen I, Nummela A, Rusko H.
Scand J Med Sci Sports. 2003 Aug;13(4):272.
KIHU-Research Institute for Olympic Sports, University of Jyvaskyla, SF-40700 Jyvaskyla, Finland.
To investigate the effects of simultaneous explosive-strength and endurance training on physical performance characteristics, 10 experimental (E) and eight control (C) endurance athletes trained for 9 weeks.
Note: Note: Another study which shows the benefits of explosive strength training on running economy:- Paul

Fat oxidation rates are higher during running compared with cycling over a wide range of intensities.
Achten J, Venables MC, Jeukendrup AE.
Metabolism. 2003 Jun;52(6):747-52
The aim of the present study was to compare the intensity that elicits maximal fat oxidation (Fat(max)) determined using a cycle-ergometer and a treadmill-based protocol.
Note: Running/walking burns more fat than cycling.:- Paul

The influence of a 6.5% carbohydrate-electrolyte solution on performance of prolonged intermittent high-intensity running at 30 degrees C.
Morris JG, Nevill ME, Thompson D, Collie J, Williams C.
J Sports Sci. 2003 May;21(5):371-81.
Institute of Youth Sport and Human Muscle Metabolism Research Group, School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, Loughborough University, Loughborough LE11 3TU, UK. email@example.com
Nine male student games players consumed either flavoured water (0.1 g carbohydrate, Na+ 6 mmol x l(-1)), a solution containing 6.5% carbohydrate-electrolytes (6.5 g carbohydrate, Na+ 21 mmol x l(-1)) or a taste placebo (Na+ 2 mmol x l(-1)) during an intermittent shuttle test performed on three separate occasions at an ambient temperature of 30 degrees C (dry bulb).
Note: For exericise time up to an hour and 15 mins doing intermittent running (eg a football game) it would seem that carbohydrate replacement is not needed.:- Paul

British running performances in the eighteenth century.
Radford PF, Ward-Smith AJ.
J Sports Sci. 2003 May;21(5):429-38
Department of Sport Science, Brunel University, Uxbridge, Middlesex UB8 3PH, UK. firstname.lastname@example.org
Our aims were to improve our understanding of human performance before 1850 and to put nineteenth- and twentieth-century performances into a broader historical context.
Note: Performance in the twentieth century seems better than previous centuries.:- Paul

Effects of increased intensity of intermittent training in runners with differing VO2 kinetics.
Millet GP, Libicz S, Borrani F, Fattori P, Bignet F, Candau R.
Eur J Appl Physiol. 2003 Jun 13
Faculte des Sciences du Sport, 700 Avenue du pic Saint Loup, Montpellier, France.
The purpose of this study was to test the hypothesis that athletes having a slower oxygen uptake ( VO2) kinetics would benefit more, in terms of time spent near VO2max, from an increase in the intensity of an intermittent running training (IT).
Note: It would seeem that people who are slower to reach their VO2max benefit from interval training of greater intensity than others who are quick to reach it.:- Paul

Determination of the exercise intensity that elicits maximal fat oxidation.
Achten J, Gleeson M, Jeukendrup AE.
Human Performance Laboratory, School of Sport and Exercise Sciences, University of Birmingham, Edgbaston, Birmingham, B15 2TT, United Kingdom.
Med Sci Sports Exerc. 2002 Jan;34(1):92-7.
PURPOSE: The aim of this study was to develop a test protocol to determine the exercise intensity at which fat oxidation rate is maximal (Fat(max)).
Note: It seems that at fat buring is quite high over a wide range of intensities. It drops off quite marketly over a certain point. Other studies have shown this to be near your anaerobic threshold:- Paul

Effect of magnetic therapy on selected physical performances.
Schall DM, Ishee JH, Titlow LW.
Human Performance Laboratory, Department of Kinesiology and Physical Education, University of Central Arkansas, Conway, Arkansas 72035.
J Strength Cond Res 2003 May;17(2):299-302
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of magnetic therapy in the form of shoe insoles on vertical jump, bench squat, 40-yd dash, and a soccer-specific fitness test performance.
Note: It seems magnetic therapy does not improve performance:- Paul

The impact of resistance training on distance running performance.
Department of Kinesiology, University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, Alabama, USA.
Sports Med 2003;33(7):539-52
Traditionally, distance running performance was thought to be determined by several characteristics, including maximum oxygen consumption (VO2max), lactate threshold (LT), and running economy. Improvements in these areas are primarily achieved through endurance training. Recently, however, it has been shown that anaerobic factors may also play an important role in distance running performance.
Note: Another study showing that resistance training (strength) has a positive impact on running economy:- Paul

Percentage decline in masters superathlete track and field performance with aging.
Baker AB, Tang YQ, Turner MJ.
Exp Aging Res 2003 Jan-Mar;29(1):47-65
Department of Anaesthetics, University of Sydney, Royal Prince Albert Hospital, Camperdown, Sydney, NSW 2050, Australia. email@example.com
Masters athletic records in track and field events, published in September 1999, were analyzed to evaluate the percentage decline in maximum physiological performance with increasing age.
Note: 75% of running performance occurs around the early sixties :- Paul
