    'Run until you can't run anymore. Then run some more. Find a new source of energy and will. Then run even faster.' The words of Scott Jurek, a dominant force - and darling - in the gruelling and growing sport of ultrarunning for more than a decade. In 1999, as a complete unknown, he took the lead in the Western States Endurance Run, a 100-mile jaunt over the Gold Rush trails of America's Sierra Nevada. He went on to win that race seven years in a row. Jurek was also one of the elite runners who

  • 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.'

    What i talk about when i talk about running - a memoir
    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.

    Science of Running: Analyze Your Technique, Prevent Injury, Revolutionize Your Training
    The human body is a machine that is designed to run--and every machine needs a manual. Explore the mechanics and physiology of every stride and reveal the new sports science that will take you from slow to pro. Science of Running goes further than any other running book to interrogate the anatomy and physiology of the runner, showing how running involves and affects every system in the body--including the effect of oxygen on the muscles. The book breaks down the runner's stride scientifically, showing what's going on under the skin at every stage of the running cycle, highlighting common injury risks based on a runner's natural gait, and showing how to correct them. Takes a head-to-toe approach to 30 key exercises for runners, annotating the muscles, ligaments, and joints involved and showing how to perfect precision in those exercises to optimize their benefits. Running is a dynamic discipline, so CGI illustrations employ a ghosting visual effect to show the movement of the body, and color-coding highlights how the muscles, ligaments, bones, and joints stretch and relax in motion. The book looks at the science behind nutrition and hydration and includes custom 360 training programs based on hard science--for morning joggers, 10K-ers, and marathon masters. Science of Running answers all your running-related questions, from what's going on in your lungs during a sprint to the science behind the legendary 'runner's high.' Learn how to run faster, further, and for longer--scientifically.

    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.

Ett år senare sprang han ensam den klassiska stärckan från Aten till Marathon i stekande sol.Vad jag pratar om när jag pratar om löpning är Murakamis mest personliga bok och innehåller minnen och reflektioner från ett liv av löpning, fyllt av målmedvetenhet, värkande muskler och uppladdningar inför ständigt nya maratonlopp. Löpningen blir för honom en sammanbindande punkt i tillvaron - och på så sätt blir en text om löpning också en text om hans romaner och hans skrivande.Haruki Murakami, född 1949 i Kyoto, är en av dagens mest omtalade och hyllade författare. Genom att förena popkultur med en egensinnig magisk realism har han med sina romaner och novellsamlingar väckt stor uppmärksamhet och fått hängivna läsare världen över.

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.

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.
