This Week’s Running Articles Around the Web (3/18/12)

Running articles I came across this week that I thought were interesting.

Olympic Bound Runner Credits Hip Dancing ( – This is something new, wonder if I need to start incorporating “curvy dancing” into my training routine.

Which Kinds of Cross-Training Are Best For Runners? ( – I prefer cycling, preferably outdoors, and the article tends to agree.

How to Run a Faster Marathon ( – Bottom line, need to train faster to get faster.  Running 9 minute miles during training won’t get you to 8 minute miles come race day.

7 Running Experts on Effective Long Run Training ( – Some pretty good advice.

It’s Time To Run Your First Ultramarathon! ( – I ran my first 50K ultramarathon back in 1999 and haven’t run one since.  The ultramarathon is a different animal and I’m looking for a new challenge in the future – maybe a 50 miler.  Currently, I’m reading a book on how to train for an ultramarathon titled “Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons” by Byron Powell.  I’ll post a review of the book after I’m finished.

Sunny Side Up (Runner’s World) – I love eggs, so I was pleased to read this short article on why they are one of the best foods for runners.


About runninginspired

I’m in my mid-40s and have been running for about 19 years. I have finished 24 marathons with a personal best time of 3:04. I currently reside in San Diego, CA. I enjoy running since it keeps you honest and will give back what you put into it. Work hard, but smart, and good results will eventually follow. I like to experiment with training plans, gadgets, shoes, and nutrition to find what works for me. The primary purpose of this blog is to document my training and thoughts about running in my ongoing quest to improve my fitness and health.
