Compartment Syndrome or Shin Splints?
Hi Stew - I am now suffering from shin splints every time I go run. It does not matter if I lay off running for a period of time or if I start out running shorter distances. What can I do to get myself back in to long distance running?
Air Pollution and Running
With the long days of summer, there are more daylight hours in which to exercise. Many people focus on running and outdoor activities. These days, though, it may be best to stay indoors and do another type of workout instead of breathing polluted air during strenuous cardio activity.
Build Up Your Running Program with the Sun
For the past few years, I have started an outdoor running program as the weather breaks from Winter to Spring. This running plan works as the sun rises in the morning prior to work or school as we are about 65% more likely to accomplish a workout.
The Twelve-Mile Run Plan
The focus is to run shorter and faster runs in the week and a long slower run at a comfortable pace on the weekend.
Several times a month, I receive emails from people interested in competing in Triathlon events that consist of swimming, biking, and running.
Marathon Running Plan
The Marine Corps Marathon is at the end of October. Do you have or recommend any running programs to help those of us running it to max our performance?
