  • What i talk about when i talk about running - a memoir

    What i talk about when i talk about running - a memoir
    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 Crazy

    Running Crazy
    Pheidippides did it once and became a legend. Brian Mills did it over 800 times...but you might be forgiven for not knowing who he is. He is a runner and 'it' is the marathon - all 26 miles and 385 yards of it - and for some people, once is not enough. Brian Mills is rumoured to have a butterfly tattoo for each of his 800 plus efforts. And Brian is not the only one who has notched up three digits of gruelling athletic endeavour. The 100 Marathon Club, also known as the Hell's Angels of Running and Running Sluts (running one race whilst thinking of another) is growing in number every year. This is a club with no prejudices and only one prerequisite for membership - the completion of 100 marathons. It is full of colourful, contrasting characters with idiosyncratic personalities and diverse lifestyles. They make up a gargantuan melting pot of humanity linked by one common desire - to run...and run ...and run. But who would want to run 100 marathons or more? And why? How do they find the time, the money, the energy? Are they crazy? Find out by reading their stories. Some will make you laugh, others will make you cry, some may even inspire you to run a marathon.Believe it or not, these are ordinary, everyday people like you. Although when you have finished laughing and crying, you may still not be sure whether they are crazy or passionate. But you - as they do when they run - will have a lot of fun along the way.

    Running with the Kenyans: Discovering the Secrets of the Fastest People on Earth
    'Completely satisfying, as well-paced and exhilarating as a good run.'--The Boston Globe Whether running is your recreation or your religion, Adharanand Finn's incredible journey to the elite training camps of Kenya will captivate and inspire you, as he ventures to uncover the secrets of the fastest people on earth. 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. Uprooting his family of five, Finn traveled to a small, chaotic town in the Rift Valley province of Kenya--a mecca for long-distance runners, thanks to its high altitude, endless paths, and some of the top training schools in the world. There Finn would run side by side with Olympic champions, young hopefuls, and barefoot schoolchildren, and meet a cast of unforgettable characters. Amid the daily challenges of training and of raising a family abroad, Finn would learn invaluable lessons about running--and about life. With a new Afterword by the author 'Not everyone gets to heaven in their lifetime. Adharanand Finn tried to run there, and succeeded. Running with the Kenyans is a great read.'--Bernd Heinrich, author of Why We Run 'Part scientific study, travel memoir, and tale of self-discovery, Finn's journey makes for a smart and entertaining read.'--Publishers Weekly 'A hymn to the spirit, to the heartbreaking beauty of tenacity, to the joy of movement.'--The Plain Dealer

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

  • North: Finding My Way While Running the Appalachian Trail

    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.

    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.

    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 Scissors
    The #1 New York Times BestsellerAn Entertainment Weekly Top Ten Book of the YearNow a Major Motion PictureThis is the true story of a boy who wanted to grow up with the Brady Bunch, but ended up living with the Addams Family. Augusten Burroughs's mother gave him away to be raised by her psychiatrist, a dead ringer for Santa Claus and a certifiable lunatic into the bargain. The doctor's bizarre family, a few patients and a sinister man living in the garden shed completed the tableau. The perfect squalor of their dilapidated Victorian house, there were no rules and there was no school. The Christmas tree stayed up until summer and Valium was chomped down like sweets. And when things got a bit slow, there was always the ancient electroshock therapy machine under the stairs...'This is the Brady Bunch on Viagra... it is impossible not to laugh at all the jokes; to admire the sardonic, fetid tone; to wonder, slack-jawed and agog, at the sheer looniness of the vista he conjures up' -- Rachel Cooke, Observer

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.
