RunScribe: Running technique analyzer

RunScribe: Running technique analyzer | Sports Activities | Scoop.it

A device attached at the back of the shoe, tracking real time running technique using many indicators.

Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:

A good addition to usual sports watches and smartphone apps that track our runs! It should be more accurate and backed by more science than "all in one" devices like sports watches. It is also interesting that it is attached at the back of the shoe. Will definitely keep an eye on this!

Side Effects Of Diet Soda

Side Effects Of Diet Soda | Sports Activities | Scoop.it
Diet soda effects have been scientifically proven to include type-2 diabetes.
Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:

If we're trying to lose weight, the first thing we tend to do is cut down on sugar. So it is only natural for those of us with an insatiable sweet tooth to turn to diet drinks to satisfy our sugar cravings, yet keep the pounds off. But, as it turns out, that is a mistake! Adverse diet soda side effects are actually much worse than the calories you are saving - at least you can burn them off! - See more at: http://www.fitnessrepublic.com/nutrition/healthy_eating/side-effects-of-diet-soda#sthash.xtxAsqC5.dpuf

How to Build Mental Muscle

How to Build Mental Muscle | Sports Activities | Scoop.it
I spring out of bed, pull on my shorts and trainers, slather on sunscreen, and sit down at my computer. It's 7 a.m. on a Sunday morning in mid-May, two weeks before the start of my first marathon, and time for my final big test.
Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:

Preparing our head for focus, determination and clarity required to expand our physical limits in sports, is going to be the next field of progress in the coming years. After coaching, nutritional, and technological advancements in the previous decades, the next breakthrough is going to come from looking inside our head.

Mio LINK heart rate wristband review

Mio LINK heart rate wristband review | Sports Activities | Scoop.it

Leonidas Athanasopoulos's insight:

Too expensive, and limited battery life are the two major problems of this HR monitor. I assume it is supposed to be quite tight around the wrist to be accurate, especially at strong sunlight conditions. I would also like to hear how accurate it is while swimming. It may interfere with wrist watch buttons. It does not convince me as an alternative to the tradition chest trap that has a battery life of almost a year.
