Study: Answering the training intensity question!

Many runners are constantly discussing and seeking the ideal training plan for a marathon. Although, I do not believe that there is the one and only way for everyone, this very interesting study and article by John Davis.
It is new information for me. I hope you can learn something from it as well. Incorporate this advice into your training plan! Train easier and run 23% faster in Kenya!

What to eat before a morning workout?

After reading this great article from Linzay Logan I just had to re-blog it! I am sure I am not the only one who loves those scenic sunrise-runs. I make them on a regular, especially when I practice for the Kenya Wildlife Marathon. But do I eat before I run? What do I eat and how much of it?
It definitely helped me to understand my body's "morning fuel needs" ! I hope it will help you just as much.

The Art of Recovery

It is very important to know that recovery-time is just as essential as workout-time for your body. It does not just happen, you need to coax it along carefully. You need to give yourself, your muscles, your heart and your soul a proper amount of time to recover and regain energy. It is not all about run, run, run or do, do, do! It is also about resting and taking some time off!
Since recovery is so crucial, this article is about how and when to recover!
