    North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail
    From the author of the bestseller Eat and Run, a thrilling memoir about his grueling, exhilarating, and immensely inspiring 46-day run to break the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. Scott Jurek is one of the world's best known and most beloved ultrarunners. Renowned for his remarkable endurance and speed, accomplished on a vegan diet, he's finished first in nearly all of ultrarunning's elite events over the course of his career. But after two decades of racing, training, speaking, and touring, Jurek felt an urgent need to discover something new about himself. He embarked on a wholly unique challenge, one that would force him to grow as a person and as an athlete: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. North is the story of the 2,189-mile journey that nearly shattered him. When he set out in the spring of 2015, Jurek anticipated punishing terrain, forbidding weather, and inevitable injuries. He would have to run nearly 50 miles a day, every day, for almost seven weeks. He knew he would be pushing himself to the limit, that comfort and rest would be in short supply -- but he couldn't have imagined the physical and emotional toll the trip would exact, nor the rewards it would offer. With his wife, Jenny, friends, and the kindness of strangers supporting him, Jurek ran, hiked, and stumbled his way north, one white blaze at a time. A stunning narrative of perseverance and personal transformation, North is a portrait of a man stripped bare on the most demanding and transcendent effort of his life. It will inspire runners and non-runners alike to keep striving for their personal best.

    Reviews of The Science of Running: 'The Science of Running sets the new standard for training theory and physiological data. Every veteran and beginner distance coach needs to have this on their book shelf.' -Alan Webb American Record Holder-Mile 3:46.91 'For anyone serious about running, The Science of Running offers the latest information and research for optimizing not only your understanding of training but also your performance. If you want to delve deeper into the world of running and training, this book is for you. You will never look at running the same.' -Jackie Areson, 15th at the 2013 World Championships in the 5k. 15:12 5,000m best If you are looking for how to finish your first 5k, this book isn't for you. The Science of Running is written for those of us looking to maximize our performance, get as close to our limits as possible, and more than anything find out how good we can be, or how good our athletes can be. In The Science of Running, elite coach and exercise physiologist Steve Magness integrates the latest research with the training processes of the world's best runners, to deliver an in depth look at how to maximize your performance. It is a unique book that conquers both the scientific and practical points of running in two different sections. The first is aimed at identifying what limits running performance from a scientific standpoint. You will take a tour through the inside of the body, learning what causes fatigue, how we produce energy to run, and how the brain functions to hold you back from super-human performance. In section two, we turn to the practical application of this information and focus on the process of training to achieve your goals. You will learn how to develop training plans and to look at training in a completely different way. The Science of Running does not hold back information and is sure to challenge you to become a better athlete, coach, or exercise scientist in covering such topics as: - What is fatigue? The latest research on looking at fatigue from a brain centered view. - Why VO2max is the most overrated and misunderstood concept in both the lab and on the track - Why 'zone' training leads to suboptimal performance. - How to properly individualize training for your own unique physiology. - How to look at the training process in a unique way in terms of stimulus and adaptation. - Full sample training programs from 800m to the marathon.

    Feet in the Clouds
    A chronicle of a masochistic but admirable sporting obsession, an insight into one of the oldest extreme sports, and a lyrical tribute to Britain' s mountains and the men and women who live among them, this is the story of fell-running. With an introduction from bestselling author Robert Macfarlane and an epilogue from Richard Askwith, this is a complete portrait of one of the few sports to have remained utterly true to its roots - in which the point is not fame or fortune but to run the ancient

    Footnotes
    Running is not just a sport. It reconnects us to our bodies and the places in which we live, breaking down our increasingly structured and demanding lives. It allows us to feel the world beneath our feet, lifts the spirit, allows our minds out to play and helps us to slip away from the demands of the modern world. When Vybarr Cregan-Reid set out to discover why running meant so much to so many, he began a journey which would take him out to tread London's cobbled streets, climbing to sites tha

  • Running for My Life

    Running for My Life
    Running for My Life is not a story about Africa or track and field athletics. It is about outrunning the devil and achieving the impossible faith, diligence, and the desire to give back. It is the American dream come true and a stark reminder that saving one can help to save thousands more.Lopez Lomong chronicles his inspiring ascent from a barefoot lost boy of the Sudanese Civil War to a Nike sponsored athlete on the US Olympic Team. Though most of us fall somewhere between the catastrophic lows and dizzying highs of Lomong's incredible life, every reader will find in his story the human spark to pursue dreams that might seem unthinkable, even from circumstances that might appear hopeless.'Lopez Lomong's story is one of true inspiration. His life is a story of courage, hard work, never giving up, and having hope where there is hopelessness all around. Lopez is a true role model.' ?MICHAEL JOHNSON, Olympic Gold Medalist'This true story of a Sudanese child refugee who became an Olympic star is powerful proof that God gives hope to the hopeless and shines a light in the darkest places. Don't be surprised if after reading this incredible tale, you find yourself mysteriously drawn to run alongside him.' ?RICHARD STEARNS, president, World Vision US and author of THe Hole in Our Gospel

Våra 3 favoriter bland böcker om löpning

Det finns några böcker som sticker ut och som fångat intresset kring löpningen lite extra. Vi vill lyfta fram dessa tre då vi tycker de var och en tillför en extra dimension kring löpning som livsstil.

Born to Run, av Christopher McDougall

Nästan alla inbitna löpare man pratar med nämner denna kultförklarade bok. Den handlar om den mexikanska indianstammen Tarahumara som beskrivs som det löpande folket. I Copper Canyons tar de sig fram på sina tunna sandaler i oländig terräng mil efter mil.

I boken får man följa flera kända karaktärer inom ultralöpning som till exempel Scott Jurek. Micah True (aka Caballo Blanco) är amerikanen som bosatte sig i Mexico och föll för löparkulturen hos Tarahumaras. Han organiserar ett lopp 2003 (Copper Canyon Ultra Marathon) och det är bland annat det loppet som man får följa i Born to Run.

Eat and Run, av Scott Jurek

En rent subjektiv känsla är att antalet vegetarianer och veganer är större bland trail och ultralöpare än i övriga samhället. Kanske är det för att den levande legenden inom sporten, Scott Jurek, har lyft fram vegansk kosthållning som en nyckelfaktor för träning och återhämtning.

Eat and Run är en av hans böcker och handlar om hans löpning och kost. Det finns en del recept också i boken även om det mesta är skrivet som en biografi över hans löparliv.

Löparglädje - en liten bok om löpning av Rune Larsson

Rune Larsson är lite av svenska ultralöpningsvärldens pappa. Han har i sin lilla bok om löpning sammanfattat hur han ser glädjen i löpningen och hur man kan träna för att behålla den livet ut.

På Rune Larssons meritlista finns bland annat tre segrar i det ultralånga loppet Spartathlon som går över 246 kilometer. Som lite kuriosa kan vi även nämna att Rune har rott över Atlanten och sprungit tvärs över hela USA. Du kan köpa boken här.
