A common element for many runners is the desire to lose or manage weight. I’m in that camp too. When I don’t run, my weight tends to balloon up pretty quickly, so I like to keep active and running is a key part of that activity.

A common question asked by many runners is how do I start running again after I’ve been laid up for a while? Layups may result from a number of reasons including injury, vacation or just life getting in the way. It’s been a common theme for myself as I have had several running injuries in my running career that left me laid up for varying periods of time.
So you’ve had a lay up for a while, but now you’re ready to get back on your feet. What do you do? Should I just pick up my runners and head out the door, or maybe I need to ease myself back into it? How much mileage should I do? Continue reading →

You know I’m a big advocate of cross-training and especially incorporating weight training into your overall program. But many people don’t like the idea of going to the gym and pressing heavy weights with the bodybuilders.
Now there’s evidence that you don’t need to lift heavy weights to build muscle tissue. By the way, if you’re over 40, you need to be working on it, otherwise you’re naturally losing muscle mass. The good news is that it turns out that you can use very light weights and still get all the health benefits. Continue reading →
As we enter the hot running months in the northern hemisphere, runners need to be aware of the hazards associated with heat. It’s wonderful to have warmer days for running, but that warmth comes with its own set of challenges.
