  • 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.

  • Dead Man Running

    Dead Man Running
    'We are the people our parents warned us about' is the motto of the Bandidos, one of the world's most feared outlaw motorcycle gangs. For ten years, Steve Utah was a Bandidos insider. He arranged the security of their clubhouses and electronic surveillance and counter surveillance. He 'cooked' ecstasy and meth for them. He was at meetings where interstate and overseas drug and weapons smuggling was planned. He saw stolen military weapons, including deadly rocket launchers, being sold. He witnessed vicious beatings, helped dump corpses. He saw men executed in front of him.It all became too much and, in an attempt to regain control of his life, Utah resorted to the unthinkable: he rolled over to the Federal Police and told them all he knew about the Bandidos. He had intimate knowledge of every facet of the Bandidos' business in Australia and many aspects of their activities in North America. He literally knew where the bodies were buried.This shocking, unflinching, tragic story is Steve Utah's confession. He knows he is a dead man running - that inevitably the Bandido code will be honoured and he will be silenced. But not before Utah gets his chance to wake readers to the looming threat in their midst - the relentless rise of sophisticated organised crime networks inside outlaw motorcycle gangs and the apparent inability of the police and legal system to deal with it.

  • 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.'

Finn's mesmerizing quest combines a fresh look at barefoot running, practical advice on the sport, and the fulfillment of a lifelong dream: to run with his heroes.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • Ät och spring : min osannolika resa mot ultramaraton och mästerskap

    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.

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.

'Excellent' Trail Running magazine 'Shane is the Indiana Jones of the running world' Damian Hall, ultra marathon runner & journalist 'Running technique has to be one of the most subjective issues out there: 10 minutes' investigation on the internet will generally confuse rather than confirm what you should or should not be doing. Mother Nature gave us some amazing gifts as runners – if we rediscover them and use them, we can transform our dynamic and everyday movement.' Shane Benzie Part narrative, part practical, this adventure takes you to the foothills of Ethiopia and the ‘town of runners’; to the training grounds of world record holding marathon runners in Kenya; racing across the Arctic Circle and the mountains of Europe, through the sweltering sands of the Sahara and the hostility of a winter traverse of the Pennine Way, to witness the incredible natural movement of runners in these environments. Along the way, you will learn how to incorporate natural movement techniques into your own running and hear from some of the top athletes that Shane has coached over the years. Whether experienced or just tackling your first few miles, this ground-breaking book will help you discover the lost art of running.
  • 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 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.

    Win at All Costs: Inside Nike Running and Its Culture of Deception
    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. The information Hart received was part of an unfolding story of deception which began when Steve Magness, an assistant to Salazar, broke the omert --the Mafia-like code of silence about performance-enhancing drugs among those involved--and alerted USADA. He was soon followed by Olympians Adam and Kara Goucher who risked their careers to become whistleblowers on their former Nike running family in Beaverton, Oregon.Combining sports drama and business expos , Win at All Costs tells the full story of Nike's running program, uncovering a corporate win-at-all-costs culture.
  • Injury-Free Running, Second Edition: Your Illustrated Guide to Biomechanics, Gait Analysis, and Injury Prevention

    Injury-Free Running, Second Edition: Your Illustrated Guide to Biomechanics, Gait Analysis, and Injury Prevention
    This no-nonsense guide shows you how an understanding of anatomy and biomechanics, coupled with the latest strengthening exercises and rehab protocols, can keep you running injury-free for a long time to come. Each time your foot hits the ground while running, an impact force averaging three times your weight travels through your body at more than 200 miles per hour, causing your bones to vibrate and tendons to stretch. When you consider that the average runner strikes the ground more than 10,000 times per hour, this translates into a remarkable amount of force that needs to be absorbed, and explains why nearly 50% of recreational runners are injured each year. The purpose of this book is to show you that impact forces are not necessarily harmful. By modifying your running form and doing specific exercises to improve tendon resiliency, not only can you effectively absorb these forces, but you can also store and return a significant percentage of them in the form of elastic recoil. Besides reducing your risk of injury, efficiently storing and returning energy can allow you to run faster with less effort.With more than 200 illustrations and 300 references, this book reviews how to: - Perform an at-home gait analysis to make specific changes in your running form that can reduce impact forces and improve performance. - Decrease your risk of injury by identifying problems with strength, flexibility, and/or neuromotor coordination using specific functional tests. - Incorporate new exercises to enhance the storage and return of energy in your tendons. - Select the running shoe that is right for you. - Treat 25 of the most common running-related injuries with the most up-to-date, scientifically justified treatment protocols available.

  • Running Man: A Memoir of Ultra-Endurance

    Running Man: A Memoir of Ultra-Endurance
    Charlie Engle's 'fascinating account of the high and low points of his life as an ultramarathon runner...is uplifting and inspirational' (Publishers Weekly) as he describes his globe-spanning races, his record-breaking run across the Sahara Desert, and how running helped him overcome drug addiction--and an unjust stint in federal prison. After a decade-long addiction to crack cocaine and alcohol, Charlie Engle hit bottom with a near-fatal six-day binge that ended in a hail of bullets. As Engle got sober, he turned to running, which became his lifeline, his pastime, and his salvation. He began with marathons, and when marathons weren't far enough, he began to take on ultramarathons, races that went for thirty-five, fifty, and sometimes hundreds of miles, traveling to some of the most unforgiving places on earth to race. The Matt Damon-produced documentary, Running the Sahara, followed Engle as he lead a team on a harrowing, record breaking 4,500-mile run across the Sahara Desert, which helped raise millions of dollars for charity. Charlie's growing notoriety led to an investigation and a subsequent unjust conviction for mortgage fraud for which he spent sixteen months in federal prison in Beckley, West Virginia. While in jail, Engle pounded the small prison track, running endlessly in circles. Soon his fellow inmates were joining him, struggling to keep their spirits up in dehumanizing circumstances. In Running Man, Charlie Engle tells the surprising, funny, and emotional story of his life, detailing his setbacks and struggles--from coping with addiction to serving time in prison--and how he blazed a path to freedom by putting one foot in front of the other. 'A fast-paced, well-written account of a man who accepts pain, pushes beyond imagined limits, and ultimately finds redemption and peace' (Booklist), this is a raw and triumphant account about finding the threshold of human endurance, and transcending it.

    '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.

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
