  • What I Talk About When I Talk About Running

    What I Talk About When I Talk About Running
    In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he'd completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, not to mention triathlons and a slew of critically acclaimed books, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and on his writing. Equal parts travelogue, training log, and reminiscence, this revealing memoir covers his four-month preparation for the 2005 New York City Marathon and settings ranging from Tokyo's Jingu Gaien gardens, where he once shared the course with an Olympian, to the Charles River in Boston among young women who outpace him.Through this marvellous lens of sport emerges a cornucopia of memories and insights: the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer, his greatest triumphs and disappointments, his passion for vintage LPs, and the experience, after fifty, of seeing his race times improve and then fall back. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, 'What I Talk About When I Talk About Running' is rich and revealing, both for fans of this masterful yet private writer and for the exploding population of athletes who find similar satisfaction in distance running.

  • Running Science

    Running Science
    More than 50 years ago, New Zealand's Arthur Lydiard started using terms like base training, periodization, and peaking. His U.S. counterpart, Bill Bowerman, brought Lydiard's term for what until then had been called roadwork, or jogging, to the States. Soon after, the 1970s running boom started, spurred by exercise-advocating research from the growing fields of exercise science and sports medicine and from enthusiasts such as Jim Fixx, author of The Complete Book of Running. One of Bowerman's former runners at the University of Oregon, Phil Knight, saw to it that those millions of new runners had swoosh-adorning footwear designed specifically for their sport. The pace of knowledge enhancement and innovation has, in fact, been so brisk through the years that even highly informed runners could be excused for not keeping up, but no longer. Running Science is a one-of-a-kind resource: * An easily comprehended repository of running research * A wealth of insights distilled from great sport and exercise scientists, coaches, and runners * A do-it-right reference for a host of techniques and tactics * An array of the most credible and widely used training principles and programs * Perhaps most of all, a celebration of the latest science-based know-how of running, now truly the world's most popular sport Elite running coach Owen Anderson presents this comprehensive work in a compelling way for runners. A PhD and coach himself, Anderson has both a great enthusiasm for sharing what scientific studies offer the running community and a keen sense of what's really important for today's informed runners to know.

Men under uppväxten var Scott varken snabbare eller mer uthållig än andra ungar, han led av högt blodtryck och åt gärna frukost på McDonald´s. Ät och spring är Scott Jureks egen berättelse om utvecklingen från soffpotatis till ultramaratonlöpare - med lopp från 42 kilometer till över 20 mil. Han var en av de löpare som reste till Mexiko för att tävla mot tarahumaraindianerna, vilket beskrivs i bästsäljaren Born to run.Jurek visar att det går att övervinna nästan allt: trötthet, smärta både fysisk och själslig och betonar vikten av att välja rätt mat. Successivt övergick han via vegetarisk kosthållning till att bli vegan. Men Jureks främsta budskap är att löpning inte handlar om medfödd talang utan om viljestyrka.I boken varvar han praktiska löp- och träningsråd, osannolika historier om uthållighet, vetenskapliga fakta och härliga vegetariska recept. Ät och spring är en självbiografi, träningsguide och en vägledning till en medvetnare livsstil - allt i ett.'Vilken triumf - såväl Scott Jureks liv som den här unika boken! Jurek tar sig an utmaningar man inte ens kan föreställa sig, och tack vare den här hisnande och personliga berättelsen förstår jag äntligen hur han gör det.

In a season plagued by injury and the tragic loss of a teammate, the Buffaloes were tested as never before.

Because that's my f**king job.'In 1995, a film called I.D., about an ambitious young copper who was sent undercover to track down the 'generals' of a football hooligan gang, achieved cult status for its sheer brutality and unsettling insight into the dark and often bloody side of the so-called beautiful game.The film was so shocking it was hard to believe the mindless events that took place could ever happen in the real world. Well, believe it now...Almost twenty years on, the man behind the film has explosively revealed that the script was largely a true story. That man, James Bannon, was the ambitious undercover cop. The football club was Millwall F.C. and the gang that he infiltrated was The Bushwackers, among the most brutal and fearless in English football. In Running with the Firm, Bannon shares his intense and dangerous journey into the underworld of football hooliganism where sickening levels of violence prevail over anything else. He introduces you to the hardest thugs from football's most notorious gangs, tells all about the secret and almost comical police operations that were meant to bring them down, and, how once you're on the inside, getting out from the mob proves to be the biggest mission of all.A disturbing but compelling read, this is the book that proves fact really is stranger than fiction.

  • Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons

    Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons
    Marathons have become too easy for some runners. What was once the pinnacle of achievement in a runner's life is now a stepping stone for extraordinary adventure in ultramarathoning. The number of ultrarunners--those running distances of 50k (31miles), 50 miles, 100k (62 miles), or 100 miles--is growing astronomically each year. Dean Karnazes' Ultramarathon Man and Chris McDougall's Born to Run have inspired tens of thousands to try these seemingly superhuman distances. But to date, there has been no practical guide to ultramarathoning. Now, Bryon Powell has written Relentless Forward Progress, the first how-to manual for aspiring ultrarunners. Powell covers every aspect of training for and racing ultra distances. This encyclopedic volume prepares runners for going farther than they have ever gone before and, in the process, shows them that they are capable of the 'impossible.'

    After years of rumors and speculation, Matt Hart sets out to peel back the layers of secrecy that protected the most powerful coach in running. What he finds will leave you indignant--and wondering whether anything in the high-stakes world of Olympic sport has truly changed. --Alex Hutchinson, New York Times bestselling author of EndureGame of Shadows meets Shoe Dog in this explosive behind-the-scenes look that reveals for the first time the unsettling details of Nike's secret running program--the Nike Oregon Project.In May 2017, journalist Matt Hart received a USB drive containing a single file--a 4.7-megabyte PDF named 'Tic Toc, Tic Toc. . . .' He quickly realized he was in possession of a stolen report prepared a year earlier by the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for the Texas Medical Board, part of an investigation into legendary running coach Alberto Salazar, a Houston-based endocrinologist named Dr. Jeffrey Brown, and cheating by Nike-sponsored runners, including some of the world's best athletes.

  • I Hate Running and You Can Too

    I Hate Running and You Can Too
    I Hate Running and You Can Too is a humorous, punchy, motivating guide to running longer distances than some might think sensible - whether that's a 5K or a marathon. Outside magazine columnist, chart-ist, and longtime runner, Brendan Leonard gets real on the love/hate relationship all runners have with the sport. He breaks down running in terms that speak to everyone who has ever struggled to get out the door and go for a run: getting comfortable being uncomfortable, how to start small and stick with it, that walking is a completely legitimate running strategy, and devising your own definition of success. Filled with 75 charts and graphs that give readers a sensible way to think about running, I Hate Running and You Can Too breaks down the reality of the training miles versus race miles, how to stay motivated, and what to do when faced with setbacks. I Hate Running and You Can Too shows readers that you won't always like running (sometimes you'll even hate it), but if you just keep going, you might learn to love it too.

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.

    Born to run : jakten på löpningens själ
    Löpning har på några år blivit Sveriges bredaste folkrörelse - de stora loppen drar idag nästan 500 000 startande. Christopher McDougalls internationella bästsäljare besvarar frågan alla löpare förr eller senare ställer sig: Varför springer jag? I Born to run jagar McDougall oförtröttligt efter svaret. Med hjälp av den bortglömda mexikanska löparstammen tarahumara, flera framstående forskare och några av långdistansvärldens mest färgstarka profiler förstår han till sist varför människan är född att springa, och varför det mesta vi hittills lärt oss om träning är helt felaktigt. Born to run har fått miljontals människor att springa annorlunda och de stora skoföretagen att tillverka en helt ny sorts löparskor. Men framför allt är Born to run en underhållande berättelse med oförglömliga karaktärer, som får även den mest inbitna löpare att parkera sig i läsfåtöljen. Dessutom har den gjort succé bland 'vanliga' läsare och legat flera månader på New York Times bästsäljarlista.
  • Sky runner : hitta styrka, balans och glädje i din löpning

    Sky runner : hitta styrka, balans och glädje i din löpning
    Bli den bästa versionen av dig själv som löpare! Oavsett om du springer 3 kilometer eller 5 mil på asfalt eller trail så kommer den här boken förändra synen på din löpning och ge dig en djupare motivation och mening med det du gör.¨ Skyrunner ¨ handlar om så mycket mer än att springa i bergen. Det handlar om en livsstil, och ett förhållningssätt till livet, löpning och naturen, om storheten i det oändliga likväl som i det lilla. Om lätthet och lek, om hängivenhet. Om att resan trots allt är viktigare än målet och det ger så mycket mer att ibland inte ta närmaste vägen. Det handlar om val. Att lyssna på sig själv och bygga både yttre och inre förutsättningar för hållbarhet i alla bemärkelser. Trots att trailrunning ofta handlar om långa distanser så anses det vara en snällare form av löpning med lägre skaderisk då varje steg är unikt och varierat och på så sätt sparar kroppen i motsats till en monoton löpning på hårt underlag som sliter hårt på kroppen ergonomiskt. Emelie uppmuntrar oss till modet att våga träna mer på vår egen intuition och lust. Med basen utifrån ett antal nyckelpass i veckan så uppmuntrar hon sedan friheten att improvisera övrig träning under veckan beroende på väder, känsla och inspiration. Ett upplägg som är både befriande och ansvarstagande. - Tricket är att se din träning som något lekfullt och lustfyllt, något som du vill tillbaka till inte något som du måste göra. Emelie Forsberg är professionell bergsatlet. Hon tävlar i trail och skyrunning och under vintern då löpsäsongen har paus tävlar hon i Skimo ( ski mountaineering racing). Båda sporterna är stora publiksporter i Europa och numera på stark framväxt även i Sverige. Emelie refereras ibland till som Sveriges mest okända superstjärna. Förutom att ha blivit världsmästare inom sin sport är hon en stor inspiratör för många genom sin blog emelieforsberg.com och på sina populära Instagramkonton @tinaemelie och @moonvalley_smallfarming där hon delar med sig av sin livsstil och framförallt sin enorma löpglädje och kärlek och ödmjukhet till naturen. I sin bok delar hon generöst med sig av sin erfarenhet, konkreta övningar, några recept och många historier ur sitt liv på högsta nivå. - ¨ Vi är alla skapta till att springa, det är bara att sätta en fot framför den andra¨. Kilian Jornet en av världens mest meriterade bergsatleter har tagit bokens spektakulära bilder.
  • Hälsa, upplevelse och prestation - om konditionsträning och löpning

    Hälsa, upplevelse och prestation - om konditionsträning och löpning
    Vill du träna för att må bra, uppleva mycket eller prestera väl? Oavsett varför du vill vara aktiv och hur vältränad du är har du här en bok som både på bredden och djupet förklarar vad som sker vid olika former av konditionsträning. Här får du också förklaringar till varför det är så lätt att bli skadad under perioder av stress eller när det känns som att du "äntligen kommit igång ordentligt". Fun fact: Om du väger 70 kilo kommer du att ha dämpat ungefär 1 600 000 kg på en löptur som är 10 000 steg (ca en mil). Därför är det så viktigt att förstå vilka krafter som är involverade i ett löpsteg och få till en bra kroppshållning. Här har du en god hjälp av denna bok! I boken görs en omfattande genomgång av effekten av olika löpstilar och varför vissa av dem ger många fler friska mil än andra. Lär dig springa snyggt, smart och effektivt! När du läst denna bok förstår du varför motionären i stort sett aldrig behöver träna hårt och känna "mjölksyra", den som tävlar på 5 km behöver träna mycket för att förbättra VO2-max och varför den som tävlar på 42 km istället behöver fokusera på laktatomsättningen. Du har också fått en förståelse för hur du utifrån olika träningsfilosofier kan lägga upp din träning. Träningsfilosofier som tas upp är 80/20, Maffetone, Pyramiden och Lydiard - det vill säga de filosofier som huvuddelen av träningsprogram inom konditionsträning bygger på.

  • Running Free

    Running Free
    Shortlisted for the 2015 Thwaites Wainwright prize for nature writing Richard Askwith wanted more. Not convinced running had to be all about pounding pavements, buying fancy kit and racking up extreme challenges, he looked for ways to liberate himself. His solution: running through muddy fields and up rocky fells, running with his dog at dawn, running because he's being (voluntarily) chased by a pack of bloodhounds, running to get hopelessly, enjoyably lost, running fast for the sheer thrill of it. Running as nature intended. Part diary of a year running through the Northamptonshire countryside, part exploration of why we love to run without limits, Running Free is an eloquent and inspiring account of running in a forgotten, rural way, observing wildlife and celebrating the joys of nature.An opponent of the commercialisation of running, Askwith offers a welcome alternative, with practical tips (learned the hard way) on how to both start and keep running naturally - from thawing frozen toes to avoiding a stampede when crossing a field of cows. Running Free is about getting back to the basics of why we love to run.

Jag hoppas att boken ska kunna ge dig inspiration till att både laga god sund mat i köket och till att ge dig ut och löpa i naturen.Det är det som ¨njut¨ i titeln står för. Att njuta av det man gör: njut av av löpningen och njut av att äta bra, riktig mat som smakar fantastiskt. Du ska inte pressa dig för hårt i löpningen och inte plåga dig med special mat ¨för atleter¨ som du inte gillar. Men omvänt ska du heller inte slösa bort allt det hårda arbete du har lagt ner genom att äta en massa skräpmat och tomma kalorier. Oavsett om du gillar att springa några kilometer i närmaste skog eller ultralopp som pågår i flera dagar så är rådet ungefär detsamma. Lyssna på kroppen, om du njuter kan det knappast bli fel!Billy White är en engelsk kock som bor i Sverige. Han har en bakgrund inom fine dining, bland annat från St John i London, Fäviken och Mathias Dahlgrens restaurant Matbaren. Nu är han köksmästare på Rosendals Trädgård.

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 är en löparbok som 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.
