This week, we talk about the Berlin Marathon. Take thirteen minutes out of your day and go watch Thirty Hours, it is worth your time. If you are running a marathon between October 9 and December 4, 2016 you should look into the Strava back half challenge. The Philadelphia Marathon has a new challenge for 2016. A BQ is not worth getting run over by a train. If you are looking for a great new recovery tool, go check out Elevated Legs. And our weeks in training.
Elevated Legs is a compression pump system that provides muscle compression to aid recovery. Using it after a long run or between two big effort days has resulted in feeling better recovered before and after the second run. My legs don't have the same fatigued feel that they used to.
This week, we wrap up our Olympics talk. Ernie Andrus finishes his Coast 2 Coast Run. If you need some new running routes check out RunGo, or upload your own routes to share with others. Pearl Izumi is getting out of the running shoe business. The North Face Endurance Challenge Series updates its code of conduct in regards to PED use. Elena talks running specific guided meditation, and our week in training.
Parallels have been drawn between running and meditation and many runners meditate on a regular basis. Running Deep takes this relationship to another level by combining running specific guided meditations from various artists, including Danny Dreyer, the co-founder of ChiRunning.
