    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 The World

    Running The World
    'Superb - a great book to fuel your wanderlust.' Mark Beaumont--- In 2019, Nick Butter became the first person to run a marathon in every country on Earth. This is Nick's story of his world record-breaking adventure and the extraordinary people who joined him along the way. On January 6th 2018, Nick Butter tied his laces and stepped out on to an icy pavement in Toronto, where he began to take the first steps of an epic journey that would see him run 196 marathons in every one of the world's 196 countries. Spending almost two years on the road and relying on the kindness of strangers to keep him moving, Nick's odyssey allowed him to travel slowly, on foot, immersing himself in the diverse cultures and customs of his host nations. Running through capital cities and deserts, around islands and through spectacular landscapes, Nick dodges bullets in Guinea-Bissau, crosses battlefields in Syria, survives a wild dog attack in Tunisia and runs around an erupting volcano in Guatemala. Along the way, he is often joined by local supporters and fellow runners, curious children and bemused passers-by. Telling their stories alongside his own, Nick captures the unique spirit of each place he visits and forges a new relationship with the world around him. Running the World captures Nick's journey as he sets three world records and covers over five thousand miles. As he recounts his adventures, he shares his unique perspective on our glorious planet, celebrates the diversity of human experience, and reflects on the overwhelming power of running.

  • Healthy Running Step by Step

    Healthy Running Step by Step
    Healthy Running Step by Step will help runners of all ages and abilities understand why running injuries occur, how to prevent them, and how to speed up recovery. Injuries plague the majority of runners, wrecking training plans and cutting running careers short by decades, but they are not inevitable. Authors Robert Forster, P.T., and Roy M. Wallack explain that nearly all running injuries can be rehabilitated quicker and even avoided altogether with the right training, strengthening, stretching, running form, and diet strategy. Drawing from Forster's three decades of training and treating Olympic athletes and more than 10,000 runners at his award-winning Santa Monica, California, physical therapy and high-performance centers, this book emphasizes that better performance is inextricably bound to injury reduction and that a comprehensive, science-based training plan with built-in anti-injury 'insurance' must include these crucial elements: Periodization training Proper technique and footwear Nutrition Posture and flexibility Strength training This book also includes detailed, step-by-step rehabilitation matrixes for the five most common running injuries: IT band syndrome, Achilles tendonitis, shin splints, plantar fasciitis, and hamstring injuries. Using these unique matrixes as your guide, you'll recover from injuries more quickly and understand what you need to do to prevent their reoccurrence. Healthy Running Step by Step is a must-have guide if you've ever been injured, are recovering from an injury, want to prevent injuries, or run injury-free for decades to come.
  • The Science of Running: How to Find Your Limit and Train to Maximize Your Performance

    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 & 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.

    Green River, Running Red
    In this provocative and eye-opening classic of investigative journalism, the #1 New York Times bestselling author and “America’s best true-crime writer” (Kirkus Reviews), Ann Rule, explores the nearly twenty-year long search for America’s most prolific and horrifying serial killer. In 1982, the body of Wendy Coffield is discovered floating near the sandy shore of Washington’s Green River. Authorities have no idea that this tragic and violent death is only the beginning of a string of murders that will rock and terrify the Seattle area for two decades. With her signature riveting prose and in-depth research, Ann Rule takes us behind the scenes of the search for the Green River Killer, a terrifying specter who ritualistically killed young women and eluded authorities for years. From seeking the help of incarcerated serial killer Ted Bundy to Ann Rule’s horrifying realization that the killer she was writing about had attended her book signings, Green River, Running Red is the suspenseful and unforgettable “definitive narrative of the brutal and senseless crimes that haunted the Seattle area for decades” (Publishers Weekly).

Våra 3 favoriter av löparböcker

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 är bra löparböcker att läsa en eller flera gånger. Böckerna som tillför en extra dimension kring löpning som en livsstil.

Born to Run, löparbok av Christopher McDougall

Born to Run, bok 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

Eat and Run, bok 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.

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.
