'Triathlon Running Foundations' provides the specific information athletes need in order to feel strong for every step of the run, all the way to the finish. For anyone who has ever said they dread the run, can't seem to improve, get injured, or feel like they're 'just not built to run,' this book will be the solution 'Triathlon Taren' Gesell is a triathlete who has become known for his wildly popular YouTube channel, Instagram account, and podcast, where he shares tips, tricks, hacks, the latest scientific findings and time-tested knowledge to help age-groupers get to their start lines confident and their finish lines strong.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.
