Nine Items to Light Up Your Run Princeton Tec Vizz ($50) The Vizz is amazingly versatile. Two bright LEDs can be dimmed, while a “maxbright” LED illuminates objects nearly 100 yards away. The lamp also has two red bulbs, perfect for getting dressed for an early-morning run without waking the family. Three taps of the power button lock the lamp, so it won’t accidentally power on in your bag.

Heel Landing Beats Midfoot In Half-Marathon Study Usain Bolt doesn’t worry about his running economy. He powers off his forefeet to generate as much speed as possible for just 10 to 20 seconds, then he gets to stop and recover. Oxygen use doesn’t concern him. On the other hand, marathoners strive for a high economy - that is, low oxygen consumption - because their event lasts for three to five hours, or more. Studies have shown that 80 to 90 percent of midpack marathoners land on their heels.
The 14 best things you can do for your body - Men You don’t need anyone to tell you to have more sex, but it doesn’t hurt that research is piling up about the benefits of getting busy. Regular time spent behind closed doors can make you look and feel younger, reduce stress, boost immunity, enhance sleep, protect against prostate cancer and improve cardiovascular health. What's more, a 25-year study from Duke University found that the more sex you have, the longer you'll live. Guys, I think we’ve discovered the fountain of youth.

The 30 Day Plank Challenge - Want to Join Me? - Pikes Peak Sports I know that core strength is important for me not only for my running but for lower back discomfort and sacroiliac (SI) issues I have. Therefore, I decided to do this 30 day plank challenge. I just finished day 5 and it is getting tougher every day! I am doing the traditional plank position on my elbows as well as on each side.
Whether you're trying to finish your first race, nail a PR, or increase your weekly mileage, runners who are most successful in achieving their goals have a high "athletic intelligence." That's a catchy way of saying these athletes are skilled at reading their body's cues and making the necessary on-the-spot adjustments–to pace, form, or attitude–to power through their workouts and races, says Dominic Micklewright, Ph.D., a sports psychologist at the University of Essex in the United Kingdom. Here's how you can raise your athletic IQ to reach your full performance potential. Raise Your Athletic IQ
In 1999 and 2000, Adidas ran a memorable ad campaign. In my opinion, these are some of the greatest running shoe ads ever created. Each one touches on something private I have experienced as a runner, something that a non-runner would probably appreciate. This series of ads apparently won recognition within the advertising community, and was successful in increasing sales. Runners, Yeah We're Different
Three Ways to Cope with a Bad Race If "Highway to Hell" is an apt description of your last race, when your pace slowed to a crawl and you weren't sure you'd finish, you might want to consider the perspective of British poet John Keats, who called failure the "highway to success." Although it may seem contradictory (or crazy) to celebrate a flop, many experts agree that losses can fuel future wins. "A bad race is an opportunity to gather information, learn, and improve," says Ralph Heath, a runner and author of Celebrating Failure: The Power of Taking Risks, Making Mistakes and Thinking Big. "You need to embrace failure as part of the process."

The WSJ's "Get Over It" Column, Translated So a couple of days back, a gentleman by the name of Chad Stafko -- which apparently is his actual name, which I find awesome -- wrote an essay for The Wall Street Journal titled "OK, You're a Runner. Get Over It." Essentially, Mr. Stafko seemed to be saying that runners... Umm... Well, his point was that there are these oval stickers, see?

8 Hydration Myths Busted At its basic level, hydration is simple. Feel thirsty after a run? Drink something. Heading into an epic meeting? Bring along a water bottle. Despite this simplicity, there's an ocean of misleading information out there that leaves runners confused.
Editors note - This is a guest post from Khaled Allen at Warrior Spirit. If you ask most people how to get stronger, they immediately recommend weight training, using barbells, dumbbells, or kettlebells. If you are starting from a very low level, pushups or situps might be recommended, but these are only as preparation for the serious business of heavy lifting. The Art of Bodyweight Training
Posted by Julien T under Fitness & Training on 1 September 2013 at 1:00 AM "30 days has September..." - This little ditty just got tough - to celebrate a month lacking a 31st day, let's take on another 30 Day Fitness Challenge: Take the Challenge, start today and complete 30 days of abs and squats workouts! Always warm up and cool down when performing body weight exercise sets like these - we recommend some back and legs stretching to be performed after this particular Challenge. The 30 day Challenges are often cited as being the toughest ones to stick to in the User of the Week articles - not only do they get progressively harder throughout the 30 days, there's also the difficulty of remembering to do them every day.

Runners often have a love/hate relationship with the long run. We love the sense of accomplishment we feel when it's over; we hate the anticipation of actually getting out there. Yet it must be done: The long run is the keystone of any training program—5-K to marathon."The long run builds endurance and strength and teaches you how to deal with fatigue," says Maria Simone, a USA Triathlon—certified coach and owner of No Limits Endurance Coaching in Absecon, New Jersey. Indeed, extending the distance you normally cover triggers several lasting changes in your body, says 2:24 marathoner and running coach Kevin Beck. Capillaries in your muscle fibers increase in number, which enables more energizing oxygen to reach your muscles. Four Ways to Enjoy Long Runs
