Medverkande löpare: Emelie Forsberg, Ida Nilsson, Mimmi Kotka, Ricky Lightfoot, Zach Miller och Courtney Dauwalter. - Som pappa och kock vill jag äta så gott och så bra som möjligt för att kunna njuta av livet till fullo. 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. Löpning är hans andra passion och han kan numera titulera sig 100 miles löpare. Han är bosatt utanför Stockholm med sin fru och sina två barn.

    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.'

    The Running Revolution
    From a two-time Olympic coach and creator of the Pose Method who has trained the running elite, an essential guide for all runners seeking to go faster and farther without injury Christopher McDougall's Born to Run-and the wildly popular natural running trend it sparked-changed the way we think about running, but it has also prompted many questions: Have we been running the wrong way? And, have we been running in the wrong kind of shoe? What is the safest type of foot strike? How many types are there? And what is a foot strike anyway? No existing guide has clearly addressed these concerns-until now. The Running Revolution provides both beginning and experienced runners with everything they need to know in order to safely and efficiently transition to and master a safer and more biomechanically efficient way of running that is guaranteed to improve performance and minimize wear and tear on the body. More than a one-size-fits-all guide, The Running Revolution provides readers with clear instructions, complete with helpful illustrations, that they can easily integrate into their unique running histories in order to run safely, intelligently, and efficiently for many years to come.

  • Running with Sherman

    Running with Sherman
    When barefoot running guru Christopher McDougall takes in a neglected donkey, his aim is to get Sherman back to reasonable health. But Sherman is ill-tempered, obstinate and uncooperative - and it's clear his poor treatment has made him deeply fearful of humans. Christopher knows that donkeys need a purpose - they are working, pack animals - and so when he learns of the sport of Burro Racing or running with donkeys, he sets out to give Sherman something worth living for.With the aid of Christopher's menagerie on his farm in rural Pennsylvania, his wife Mika and their friends and neighbours including the local Amish population, Sherman begins to build trust in Christopher. To give him a purpose, they start to run together. But what Sherman gains in confidence and meaning is something we all need: a connection with nature, the outdoors, with movement. And as Christopher learns, the side benefits of exercise and animal contact are surprising, helping with mental and physical health in unexpected ways.
  • Spring dig fri!

    En inspirationsbok full av endorfiner! Kenneth Gysing visar med övertygande entusiasm och mycket humor att löpning inte behöver vara kravfyllt eller komplicerat utan ett enkelt sätt förhålla sig till livet.Många av oss springer några rundor inför sommarsäsongen eller plågar oss igenom några pass efter julhelgerna. Kenneth Gysings förhållande till löpning är ett helt annat. Han springer flera gånger i veckan, året om, i alla väder och oavsett vad som händer i livet. Kenneth är löpare. Han äter, jobbar, sover, andas - och springer. Löpningen har tagit honom genom livets olika skeenden.Spring dig fri! är inte en faktabok med träningsscheman och kostupplägg, den handlar inte om vikten av att stretcha eller hur man når fram till det perfekta löpsteget. Den handlar om löpning ett sätta att förhålla sig till livet. Den handlar om långa springturer genom Dalarnas djupa skogar, om svett och kamp bland höga berg i Himalaya, om att springa vilse i dallrande hetta i den mest avlägsna av Indiens saltöknar. Den handlar också om vardagsglädjen i att springa på småstigar en tidig morgon i april.

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.
