Best Running Tips Newsletter, Issue #008 -- Run For Your Life


August 21, 2008

Welcome to the Best Running Tips Newsletter !

This newsletter tells you about a few exciting new features on best-running-tips.com and lets you in on some of the highlights of the past few months. First though the interesting results of a long-term study...

=============================================
RUN FOR YOUR LIFE

Of course, exercise improves your health...

You knew it already.

I don't need to tell you this.

However, a study conducted over two decades found some interesting facts and some good evidence that running can slow the ageing process.

People over 50 who run regularly have a longer active life, reduce the risk of dying early and have fewer disabilities.

The study tracked 538 people over 50 who ran several times a week since 1984. This group was compared to non-runners. Interestingly enough, as the people grew older, the health difference between the runners and non-runners grew bigger, continuing even when people went over 90 years old!

The health benefits of running were even bigger than has generally been assumed already. So, with that in mind.... run for your life!.

=============================================
NEW ON THE SITE :

You might have noticed some changes to best-running-tips.com lately.

Changes to the lay-out, a bloglet with the latest articles on the right-hand site of the screen, and some Web2.0 elements which make the site more interactive.

Have you found the Running Training Helpline already?

In the past few months I have answered about fifty questions about running training...

....and I am ready for your question as well. Type in your question and I, and other site visitors, might just be able to give you a hand!

I also encourage you to have a look at the running stories.

I love running stories. Whether it is about a great running training, a fun moment during a race, a moment of private and/or public victory... let the world know and tell your story!

RUNNING QUESTION:

Just as an example of one of the questions I have answered, see a  link to Vincent's question regarding his goal of running a sub-40 10k.

How quickly can I get to sub 40 minutes for a 10k run?

In the question I used a tool, the race conversion calculator, to work out the strengths and weaknesses in Vincent's training.

In the end I advised him to work on:

  • Increasing mileage
  • Interval running
  • Tempo running
  • Read Daniel's Running Formula
  • =============================================
    I hope you enjoyed my newsletter and hope to see you back at my site.

    Speak to you soon. In the meanwhile, visit my site often and happy running!
