I talk with Sim Wegerif of ithlete . ithlete is the leading heart rate variability app for monitor HRV. By using the app to measure HRV an athlete can tell how much stress they are under and how well they are recovering from previous workouts.
I talk with Jeffrey Ford about his minimalist approach to marathon training. Jeff typically runs no more than 15-20 miles per week, yet can run a 2:51 marathon. He attributes his success to using Crossfit Endurance and Pose Running Technique.
I talk with Mark Lofquist about his transition to barefoot and minimalist footwear. Mark has an incredible story about how barefoot and minimalist shoe running allowed him to run pain-free and enjoy the sport of running. We also talk about his experience with the Paleo Diet and Crossfit Endurance.
In a recent article, Matt Fitzgerald claims that running low mileage, actually causes more running injuries than running high mileage. Fitzgerald suggests that running more miles will actually help you stay injury free! That’s right, Fitzgerald claims that running more miles will help prevent, not cause running injuries. In this post I’ll show why Fitzgerald’s assertion is incorrect and why running fewer miles to prevent injury can be sensible. Continue reading Will running more miles help you stay injury free?
In an attempt rid myself of chronic running injuries, I started running less mileage, focusing on the quality of my runs rather than weekly mileage. To my surprise, I started getting faster, closing in on some of my personal best times. After just 6 months of training this way, I set personal bests at 10 miles 57:29 and 5k 16:39.
I talk with Dr. Ray McClanahan about the importance of proper footwear. Dr. Ray tells about the mechanics of the foot and how important it is to allow it to function naturally. We also discuss Dr. Ray’s running and how it has improved since he started to follow a Paleo-style diet. Dr. Ray is a 13 min 5k runner, and gives some great tips on how to achieve fast times while respecting your feet.
