Common Limiting Factors in the Marathon

Common Limiting Factors in the Marathon | iRun | Scoop.it
The marathon poses an interesting challenge. Most of you know exactly what I'm talking about, because you've made several attempts at the distance by now. A few, the lucky among us, enjoy relative success even in their first or second marathon, but more commonly, in spite of what we might deem excellent preparation, most of us experience one or more known issues that plague a marathon attempt.

Six Taper Secrets for the Peaking Phase

Six Taper Secrets for the Peaking Phase | iRun | Scoop.it
Over the last few years, I think I've finally figured this peaking thing out. It took a while because, like many coaches, I fell into the standard "tapering" model we've all been taught. Problem was, tapering didn't work consistently. The results were just as hit-or-miss as not tapering at all.

Ψυχολογικές τεχνικές για αγωνίσματα αντοχής

Ψυχολογικές τεχνικές για αγωνίσματα αντοχής | iRun | Scoop.it
Στα αγωνίσματα μεγάλων αποστάσεων η ψυχολογική κατάσταση και οι σκέψεις μπορούν να επηρεάσουν σημαντικά την απόδοση του αθλητή. Πολλές φορές ο αθλητής χρειάζεται να 'ξεχαστεί' απο την πίεση του αγώνα τον πόνο και την εξάντληση της προσπάθειας του, ενώ άλλες φορές θα ήταν αποτελεσματικότερο εάν συγκεντρωνόταν στο σώμα του. - Άρθρα

Είναι κατανοητό ότι για έναν δρομέα που προετοιμάζεται για  υπερμαραθώνιο θα πρέπει να τρέξει κάποιες φορές και στην προπόνηση αποστάσεις μεγαλύτερες από μαραθώνιο. Αυτό είναι λογικό γιατί το να τρέχεις κάθε μέρα μεγάλες αποστάσεις είναι η βασική μεθοδολογία για να τρέξεις υπεραποστάσεις. - Άρθρα

10 Marathon Day Mistakes

10 Marathon Day Mistakes | iRun | Scoop.it
Just hours after completing a recent marathon, I raised a bittersweet toast to a race I was already eager to forget. Training for it had cost me countless pancake breakfasts with my kids, and attending it nearly emptied my bank account. But instead of basking in the PR I'd promised my running buddies, I flashed back to futile porta-potty stops, wardrobe malfunctions, and a scary midrace bonk. How did I go so wrong?

7 Secrets for Making a Comeback

7 Secrets for Making a Comeback | iRun | Scoop.it
It happens to so many runners, and in all likelihood it’s happened to you: You start running. You push your body faster, farther, and start to dream about PRs, six-pack abs, and pairs of skinny jeans. Suddenly, you see possibilities that you never had the courage to dream about. Then WHAM! Something stops you right in your tracks. You get hurt. You get busy. You get tired or burned out. And suddenly the gains in mileage, pace, fitness, and confidence disappear as quickly as they materialized.
