  • Running On Empty

    Running On Empty
    A fascinating glimpse into the mind of an ultramarathon runner and the inspirational saga of his run across America. The ultimate endurance athlete, Marshall Ulrich has run more than one hundred foot races averaging over one hundred miles each, completed twelve expedition-length adventure races, and ascended the seven summits-- including Mount Everest. Yet his run from California to New York--the equivalent of running two marathons and a 10k every day for nearly two months straight--proved to be his most challenging effort yet. In Running on Empty he shares the gritty backstory of his run and the excruciating punishments he endured on the road. Ulrich also reaches back nearly thirty years to when the death of his first wife drove him to run from his pain.Ulrich's memoir imbues an incredible read with a universal message for athletes and nonathletes alike: face the toughest challenges, overcome debilitating setbacks, and find deep fulfillment in something greater than achievement.
  • Running the Dream

    Running the Dream
    The bestselling author of 80/20 Running and How Bad Do You Want It? reveals his inspiring and surprising journey to see just how fast he can go.Matt Fitzgerald has been running (and writing about running) for most of his adult life. But, like many passionate amateur runners, he never felt he was quite fulfilling his potential. If he follows the training, nutrition, and lifestyle of an elite runner, just how fast could he go?In his mid-forties, Matt at last has the freedom to do nothing but train, if only for the span of one summer. The time is now. He convinces the coach of Northern Arizona Elite, one of the country's premier professional running teams, to let him train with a roster of national champions and Olympic hopefuls in the running mecca of Flagstaff, Arizona, leading in to the Chicago Marathon. The results completely redefined Matt's notion of what is possible, not only for himself but for any runner.Filled with a vibrant cast of characters, rigorous and quad-torching training, and a large dose of self-deprecating humor, Matt's gripping account of his 'fake pro runner' experience allows us to partake in the dream of having the chance to go all the way. Yet for the gifted young runners Matt trains with, it's not a dream but concrete reality, and their individual stories enrich this inspiring narrative. Running the Dream pulls us into the rarified world of professional running in a way we can all relate to, regardless of speed, and to take away pieces of one man's amazing journey to try to achieve our own potential.

    The Science of Running: How to Find Your Limit and Train to Maximize Your Performance
    Reviews of The Science of Running: 'The Science of Running sets the new standard for training theory and physiological data. 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.
  • 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.
  • Running with Sherman: The Donkey with the Heart of a Hero

    Running with Sherman: The Donkey with the Heart of a Hero
    '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.

  • Injury-Free Running

    Injury-Free Running
    A no-nonsense guide to help readers effectively treat and prevent injuries. We were not born to run. If we were, injury rates among runners wouldn't be so high. Of the 12 million runners in the United States, the annual injury rate is close to 50%. This translates into nearly 2 million stress fractures and 4 million sprains/strains. To run injury-free for decades, you have to be strong, coordinated and most of all, well informed. While various experts will give you advice based on anecdotal information (e.g., wear minimalist shoes, strike on your midfoot, and never stretch), this book reviews the scientific literature to show you how to: * Develop a running form based on your alignment, prior injuries, and desired running speed. * Design a personalized rehab program you can do at home by evaluating your arch height, flexibility, strength, and coordination. * Choose a running shoe that is right for you. * Select the best preexercise warm-up routine. * Treat 25 of the most common running-related injuries with the most up-to-date, scientifically justified treatment prototocols available.

So at the age of twelve, Burroughs found himself amidst Victorian squalor living with the doctor's bizarre family, and befriending a pedophile who resided in the backyard shed. The story of an outlaw childhood where rules were unheard of, and the Christmas tree stayed up all year round, where Valium was consumed like candy, and if things got dull an electroshock- therapy machine could provide entertainment.

    Vad jag pratar om när jag pratar om löpning
    Efter att Haruki Murakami sålt sin jazzbar för att ägna sig åt skrivande på heltid började han springa för att hålla sig i form. 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.

    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.

  • 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.'

    North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail
    From the author of the bestseller Eat and Run, a thrilling memoir about his grueling, exhilarating, and immensely inspiring 46-day run to break the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. Scott Jurek is one of the world's best known and most beloved ultrarunners. Renowned for his remarkable endurance and speed, accomplished on a vegan diet, he's finished first in nearly all of ultrarunning's elite events over the course of his career. But after two decades of racing, training, speaking, and touring, Jurek felt an urgent need to discover something new about himself. He embarked on a wholly unique challenge, one that would force him to grow as a person and as an athlete: breaking the speed record for the Appalachian Trail. North is the story of the 2,189-mile journey that nearly shattered him. When he set out in the spring of 2015, Jurek anticipated punishing terrain, forbidding weather, and inevitable injuries. He would have to run nearly 50 miles a day, every day, for almost seven weeks. He knew he would be pushing himself to the limit, that comfort and rest would be in short supply -- but he couldn't have imagined the physical and emotional toll the trip would exact, nor the rewards it would offer. With his wife, Jenny, friends, and the kindness of strangers supporting him, Jurek ran, hiked, and stumbled his way north, one white blaze at a time. A stunning narrative of perseverance and personal transformation, North is a portrait of a man stripped bare on the most demanding and transcendent effort of his life. It will inspire runners and non-runners alike to keep striving for their personal best.

  • Strength and Conditioning for Endurance Running

    Strength and Conditioning for Endurance Running
    Endurance runners and coaches have tended to neglect weight training and conditioning techniques, often in the belief that they don't benefit performance, add unwanted muscle bulk, or cause excessive soreness. But as standards at elite level have improved, so coaches and runners have become increasingly keen on learning about the latest new training techniques or ways to stay injury free. No longer does the running community view strength and conditioning with scepticism, or as something that can only benefit elite runners. In Strength and Conditioning for Endurance Running, author Richard Blagrove shows how a strength and conditioning programme can directly improve running performance and reduce the risk of injury, as well as allowing an athlete to tolerate high volumes of running in the future.

    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.

  • Running & Being

    Running & Being
    A New York Times bestseller for 14 weeks in 1978, Running & Being became known as the philosophical bible for runners around the world. More than thirty years after its initial publication, it remains every bit as relevant today.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 "e;a world beyond sweat"e; 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, 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, Sheehan describes what it means to experience the oneness of body and mind, of self and the universe. In this, Sheehan argues, we have the power to discover "e;the truth that makes men free."e;

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.
