    'Of course I'm a f**king hooligan, you pr**k. I am a hooligan...there I've said it...I'm a hooligan. And, do you know why? 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.

    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.

    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 Against the Tide: True Tales from the Stud of the Sea
    From the star of Bravo's hit reality show Below Deck, comes Running Against the Tide, the 'Stud of the Sea's' first-ever memoir recounting his journey from landlocked Saginaw, Michigan to the high seas, where he has spent more than twenty-five years as a superyacht captain. The cast members of Below Deck are known for their catfights, scheming, personal attacks, and long-held grudges, but what keeps viewers coming back week after week is resident hero Captain Lee, the only cast member to appear in all five seasons. But you don't have to be one of Below Deck's 1.5 million weekly viewers to appreciate Captain Lee's story, which offers a glimpse behind-the-scenes at the luxury yachting industry and one of Bravo's biggest franchises. From having to reclaim his drunk captain's lost papers in the Dominican Republic to unwittingly crewing a drug boat out of Turks and Caicos to navigating the outrageous demands of the super-rich in New York City, Captain Lee's tales from the high seas run the gamut, proving time and time again why he's a fan favorite: he's occasionally profane, he's often surprising, but he's never dull and, for the first time, he's here to tell all.

    'A delight, full of heart and hijinks and humor . . . McDougall is a gifted storyteller who gets to the heart of the human-animal connection.' --John Grogan, author of Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst Dog From the best-selling author of Born to Run, a heartwarming story about training a rescue donkey to run one of the most challenging races in America, and, in the process, discovering the life-changing power of the human-animal connection. When Chris McDougall agreed to take in a donkey from an animal hoarder, he thought it would be no harder than the rest of the adjustments he and his family had made after moving from Philadelphia to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. But when he arrived, Sherman was in such bad shape he could barely move, and his hair was coming out in clumps. Chris decided to undertake a radical rehabilitation program designed not only to heal Sherman's body but to heal his mind as well. It turns out the best way to soothe a donkey is to give it a job, and so Chris decided to teach Sherman how to run. He'd heard about burro racing--a unique type of race where humans and donkeys run together in a call-back to mining days--and decided he and Sherman would enter the World Championship in Colorado. Easier said than done. In the course of Sherman's training, Chris would have to recruit several other runners, both human and equine, and call upon the wisdom of burro racers, goat farmers, Amish running club members, and a group of irrepressible female long-haul truckers. An entire community comes together to help save Sherman and, along the way, Chris shows us the joy of a life with animals.

  • Running & Being

    Running & Being
    Written by the late, beloved Dr. George Sheehan, Running & Being tells of the author's midlife return to the world of exercise, play, and competition, in which he found 'a world beyond sweat' that proved to be a source of great revelation and personal growth. But Running & Being focuses more on life than it does, specifically, on running. It provides an outline for a lifetime program of fitness and joy, showing how the body helps determine our mental and spiritual energies. Drawing from the words and actions of the great athletes and thinkers throughout history, Dr. Sheehan ties it all together with his own philosophy on the importance of fitness and sport, as well as his knowledge of training, injury prevention, and race competition. Above all, he describes what it means to experience the oneness of body and mind, of self and the universe. In this, he argues, we have the power to discover 'the truth that makes men free.
  • Running To the Edge

    Running To the Edge
    'Athletes in any sport stand to learn from Larsen's methods, and Futterman turns in a fluent yarn reminiscent of Plimpton and McPhee.'--KirkusVisionary American running coach Bob Larsen assembled a mismatched team of elite California runners . . . the start of his decades-long quest for championships, Olympic glory, and pursuit of 'the epic run.' In the dusty hills above San Diego, Bob Larsen became America's greatest running coach. Starting with a ragtag group of high school cross country and track runners, Larsen set out on a decades-long quest to find the secret of running impossibly fast, for longer distances than anyone thought possible. Himself a former farm boy who fell into his track career by accident, Larsen worked through coaching high school, junior college, and college, coaxing talented runners away from more traditional sports as the running craze was in its infancy in the 60's and 70's. On the arid trails and windy roads of California, Larsen relentlessly sought the 'secret sauce' of speed and endurance that would catapult American running onto the national stage. Running to the Edge is a riveting account of Larsen's journey, and his quest to discover the unorthodox training secrets that would lead American runners (elite and recreational) to breakthroughs never imagined. New York Times Deputy Sports Editor Matthew Futterman interweaves the dramatic stories of Larsen's runners with a fascinating discourse of the science behind human running, as well as a personal running narrative that follows Futterman's own checkered love-affair with the sport. The result is a narrative that will speak to every runner, a story of Larsen's triumphs--from high school cross-country meets to the founding of the cult-favorite 70's running group, the Jamul Toads, from national championships to his long tenure as head coach at UCLA, and from the secret training regimen of world champion athletes like Larsen's prot g , American Meb Keflezighi, to victories at the New York and Boston Marathons as well as the Olympics. Running to the Edge is a page-turner . . . a relentless crusade to run faster, farther.
  • 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.

    Ät och spring : min osannolika resa mot ultramaraton och mästerskap
    Under närmare tjugo års tid har Scott Jurek varit en av världens främsta löpare på distansen ultramaraton. 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. Han har bokstavligt talat byggt upp sig själv inifrån och ut, och slutresultatet är en man - och en historia - som ingen annan.'Christopher McDougall, författare till Born to Run - Jakten på löpningens själSCOTT JUREK är en av världens främsta ultramaratonlöpare och har vunnit ett flertal guldmedaljer i olika mästerskap. Han är vegan, känd för sin miljömedvetna livsstil och anlitas ofta som föredragshållare.STEVE FRIEDMAN är journalist och författare till flera uppskattade böcker.

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.
