I reckoned I was about 85% there with training towards Thames Path 100 miles. Runners are never certain if they’ve done sufficient training, or the right type for 100 miles. Get to the start line as fit and as healthy as possible. I managed both, if not for a niggle in the groin that had come on in the last month. At least it was the last part of training.I hadn’t done any training runs longer… 568

Running your first ultra can be quite daunting. Hopefully, you will have already run a few marathon events but moving up to a first ultra of perhaps 30-45 miles takes the challenge to a new level for a number of reasons. Most marathons are road events, whereas most ultras are on trails or mixed terrain. Because of the longer distance, you will be going slower and check-points/drinks stations are t… 804

I had been looking forward to these shoes arriving with us as I had tried on the sample pair in pre-production and loved the initial feel.For me these should be an ideal shoe as I am training for a trail ultramarathon in 2017 so for the training, and possibly the race as well, I think I have my shoe for my requirements.

GB Athlete and prolific local runner Sam Amend reviews her choice of Brooks shoes:The Brooks Hyperion is a lightweight racing shoe. I love the look of these trainers and they feel like slippers when putting them on. After some initial short runs in them, they seemed like the perfect racing shoe for me and, as one of the lower cost shoes, will set you back a reasonable £90. Having broken them in… 246

The guys at Apex Sports have given me one of these brand new Stryd Power Monitors to test and I'm planning on using it through to the Boston Marathon next April. I want to see if measuring these new metrics results in any actionable data that will improve training.I've got a GPS watch - a Suunto Ambit 2s - and while I love it, I'm not convinced GPS training alone is that much use if you're serious… 307

The book is described as the complete guide to power meters for running.
meters have been used extensively in cycling for a number of years and

Running is more than just putting one foot in front of the other*.
We don’t often think of it, but it’s all a Numbers game. You don’t realise it
but you are constantly Number crunching either in your mind or on the computer.
So you’re heading out for a run. It’s a Sunday morning† and you’re
off to continue building mileage for your A-race (probably a half or full
