Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #003 --
Performance Enhancing Running Tights and Results
October 09, 2006
Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter.
It's been a while since the last edition and I do apologize for that.
Life got in the way again. And I figured that many of you were enjoying
too much to be reading this newsletter anyway.
I got to experience my first Australian winter. After having lived in
The Netherlands for whole my life, Australian winter
(Melbourne) is a breeze.
Sure, it can be chilly in the mornings, but temperatures generally rise
to about 15 degrees Celsius / 59 degrees Fahrenheit
during the day. The coldest we had was about 9 degrees Celsius / 48
Running has been a bit on and off; being in a new job (analyst at a big
Australian bank) takes quite a bit of energy which has stopped me from
doing my normal amount of running.
Despite of that I have decided to sign up for a race again. It's a 10k
run just before Christmas. I am preparing using a running program from
Daniel's Running Formula.
His 10k-program is really tough with back-to-back hard days. I am not
sure I'll get close to running a PR considering I can't put in my usual
amount of running, but I'll give it a good try. I'll let you know how
By the way, I have written a book review on Daniel's Running Formula.
It's one of the best running books out there. If you are in any way
serious about running, consider getting this book.

RUNNING TIP OF THE MONTH : Performance Enhancing
Ever seen those miracle running tights advertised which are supposed to
make you run faster and farther ?
Well, apparently, they really do work...
I am a bit of a sceptic on pretty much everything which is supposed to
make you tougher, better, faster or slimmer without
hard work. But this claim is backed up by scientifical evidence.
French research on 12 male runners shows that compression tights
allowed these runners to use less energy compared
to running with shorts or normal tights. These performance enhancing
tights delay muscle fatigue and let you go farther or make you use up
less energy at a given speed.
It is estimated that a 3.5 hour marathoner would shave of a cool six
minutes when running with these tights.
