October 12, 2007

Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter !

Would you like to have the chance to win a RoadRunnerSports $50,- Gift Voucher by sharing your own running story ?

Then read on.

=============================================
LINK TO HADD E-BOOK

Since a short while new subscribers to the Best Running Tips Newsletter get a copy of Hadd's Approach to Distance Training.

It is a good story about the importance of building up your base and how to do that. Many runners can benefit from just using his running training method. The text originally appeared in a forum thread on letsrun.com.

So it is not a real book, but it really makes for an interesting and entertaining read.

I don't want any of my subscribers to miss out, so if you do not already have the document, then download it here :

THE RUNNING STORY CONTEST...

Every runner has great stories to tell. I still remember the excitement of my first race. That first very painful half marathon. That race in which a runner collapsed and had to be brought back to life.

You too have stories. About how you have started running. About your first race. About a time you broke a personal record. About an amazing experience during one of your training runs. About how much you enjoy running.

Share your story :

RUNNING TIP OF THE MONTH : Soccer vs Running

My soccer season has just come to an end.

It's been great. My team did not fare that well, but in an all deciding last game we beat the team at the top of the ladder and only just avoided relegation to the division below.

Even though during the soccer season my long distance running training partly stops, it is not to say that soccer is bad for your running.

A new study has found that a friendly game of soccer burns more calories and builds up more muscles than going for a run.

Also, when comparing the soccer players to the runners, Danish scientists found that soccer players felt less tired after exercising than the joggers, because they were having more fun.

I have to note though that this study was only done for a limited period of time (the study went for twelve weeks). Soccer can be quite intense with many short sprints.

More studies have shown that in the short run, intense exercise like that will lead to better fitness than long distance running. However, over a longer period of time, your long distance running does not improve with intense exercise anymore.

Why?

Read Hadd's book and you know why. Base is everything for the long distance runner.

I am going to leave you for know. I am going to pick a goal race for in about four months, preferably a half marathon and set up my training program tonight. I'll leave you with LaShawn's quote, a great reply when you ever get asked why you run :

Don't ask me why I run. Ask yourself why you don't.

Three things for you to do right now:

  • Download Hadd's book


  • Submit your story and win a gift voucher


  • Visit my site often and enjoy your running!
