Fast Abs | Running | Scoop.it

That's because scientists and coaches now know that you can't run your best without a strong core, the muscles in your abdominals, lower back, and glutes. They provide the stability, power, and endurance that runners need for poweri

How Should I Recover Post-Marathon? | Running | Scoop.it
I really struggled after my last marathon. Do you have any tips for recovering post-race? I think I made a lot of mistakes, like running the next day. Thanks. —Jonathan Don't be so hard on yourself, Jonathan.

You're in the middle of a race or workout and suddenly your legs feel heavy, your lungs scream, and all you want to do is stop. What do you do? Some runners ease up, only to beat themselves up later for doing so. But others don't. They barrel through the pain and survive—legs and lungs intact.
