Maybe "toughing it out" is worth it if you're in your goal race

When you're not feeling the greatest, what do you do? Do you just plow through? Or do you give some serious thought to how you're feeling and, if you feel necessary, adjust your training? At what point do you switch from just plowing through to adjusting? How long do you give yourself to return to normal training? Unt ...

Kinesio tape, how social distress affects physical pain
by on Monday, February 9, 2015

Kinesio tape

I've written before about how Kinesio tape likely helps athletes.

I think it's also important to understand how it likely does not help athletes. On that front, we have a study looking at how Kinesio tape affects strength in fatigued muscles. Rugby players but, presumably, fatigued muscl ...

I was thinking of doing what would look more like a typical Monday post today with some content from last week. However, this week, some bad analysis of a study that's been around for a while began appearing.

You may have seen the headlines: [url=http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/science/science-news/11385044/Fast-running-is-as-deadly-as-sitting-on-couch-scientists-find.html]Fast running is as deadly as sitting on couch, sc ...

As I'm sure the regulars have figured out, I'm mostly interested in building a site that will be useful to you. I want to build what you want and need to make the most of your running, whatever your goals.

In the past, I've always done that by asking what tools would help me make the most of my running. Some generous people have helped me along the way with requests or suggestions but it's been largely myself just deciding wh ...

Timing matters, we're all individuals
by on Monday, February 2, 2015

Quite a few interesting things popped up in my reading list this week. So many that I'm considering another post of this style for Thursday so I don't have to throw out so many interesting things. We'll see how it goes.

As for now, here are a couple of my favorite from the past week:

Race time matters

How necessary is winter racing?
by on Thursday, January 29, 2015

After my recent "Ask me anything" post, I received an email, asking the following:

[quote]I've been told I need to race over the winter to be ready for my spring races. What do you think of this? It seems like you don't race much during the winter and you seem to be able to get a good start to the spring. Do ...

First, I should point out that I'm the last team member to write about the race. Nikki, Josh and Jerry have already written on their perspectives. To be honest, the weekend got hectic for me and I haven't read through all of ...

Brain training
by on Monday, January 26, 2015

It's seemed like a bit of a quiet week. Maybe I am just getting behind this week with things going on. Whatever the case, only one topic today but it's one that I'm really fascinated in.

I've blogged before about the idea of training your brain to handle fatigue more effectively and how that might make you a better runner.

Well, [url=http://www.outsideonline.co ...

Recent running sights by Adam Piotrowski, on Flickr

I've seen some notes from several runners in the past couple of weeks, expressing frustration as they push through this winter's training. I know the feeling, I've been experiencing the challenges myself.

Sleep matters and compression gear: not so helpful?
by on Monday, January 19, 2015

Sleep matters

We all know sleep matters, right? While there is no absolutely right amount of sleep that I can tell you everyone should get, generally, more is better. We can all accept that, right?
