Did you know running facts – Part 27
The Olympic Games has been and gone and it will be another 4 years until we are treated to watching the worlds best compete. Did you know how successful the Rio Games were?

Over 19 days, there were 19 world records broken and 65 Olympic records broken. In terms of athletic performance, the Rio Games has been the most successful games in history.Michael Phelps

Whilst any medal is an achievement, there were amazing standouts, that included Michael Phelps (totaling 28 Olympic medals in this career) and Usain Bolt who as a track sprinter has completed something nobody thought would be possible and accomplished three Olympic gold medals in each of the last three Olympic Games. What a great era of sport we live in!

Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!

Endura Salted Caramel gel and other new flavours
More flavours ensure you stay on top of your nutrition
Gels… for many of us the batle in the mind between desire and need has lead to many of us having failed nutrition during training and racing. The often hard to stomach taste of gels, akin to drinking dish washing liquid, is now a thing of the past – thanks to Endura’s new flavours.

Why Take Endura Sports Energy Gels?New Endura Gel flavours now at intraining Running Centre
Endura Sports Energy Gels are a concentrated energy source, containing a combination of two specialised forms of carbohydrates to increase total carb absorption from 60 g to 90 g an hour. Each gel contains 26 g of carbs with energy boosting caffeine. Store them on you during training and racing to conveniently keep glycogen levels up, maintain vital energy reserves and prevent hitting the wall.

Three new flavours from Endura – Now available at intraining Running Centre

– Salted Caramel: Ideal for those who have a sweet tooth
– Fruit Burst: Something fresh to keep your mind on task
– Cola Kick: Subtle taste and easy on the taste buds

If you have been struggling with fuelling during runs over 1hr in duration, it may be time to get yourself some help the easy way with a gel that is easy to take on board and stay on board.


What your wear pattern means – by Steve Manning (podiatrist)
Matching your footwear pattern to the right shoes…
Wear patterns occur as your shoes age and ‘wear in’. Wear patterns can point to a sign that your shoes should be replaced. Your wear pattern can furthermore explain the forces you exert on the shoe based on your individual biomechanics. This can then help with your selection of footwear to suit your specific running style and foot structure.

If you have worn through the outsole (rubber tread) to the midsole then you will need to replace your shoes. However by this stage the midsole cushioning in the shoe has likely to be ‘dead’ (see the dead shoe test here) and not offering your joints any relief from impact.
