Did you know running facts – Part 4
Eliud Kipchoge - Fastest man for 42.2km marathon distanceRecently one of the biggest records to to fall (unofficially) was the men’s marathon time. Eliud Kipchoge of Kenya was part of Nike’s special event where the magical 2hr mark was the goal… yes, that is right, they were planning to run 42.2km in under 2hrs.

Unfortunately, the 2hr barrier still proves to be elusive, with Kipchoge missing the mark by just 25 seconds for a time of 2:00:25.

To put this time into perspective, Kipchoge ran an average of 17sec per 100m 4200 times without a break. His average kilometre pace for the each of the 42km was 2min50sec or 21km/hr – that is a good effort on a bicycle!

Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!


OOFOs – Finally a thong that is good for your feet!
Thongs that help your feet recover…yes you read right!
When you get back from a long run or you have been on your feet too long, it is always nice to kick off the shoes and throw on a pair of your old trusty thongs to give your feet some freedom. The problem was that our thongs never provided any support and our feet would ultimately pay the price.

OOFOS are also light and compact enough to throw into the bag ready for you to put on and head to the coffee shop, post run.

Feetures – Socks to brighten up any morning
Better fit, better feel and better run
One thing all runners quickly learn is the importance of looking after their feet. Once you have the shoes sorted, the next critical concern is socks. intraining have a wide range of Feetures socks in stock in a variety of different colours that will brighten up any early morning or late evening run.

Feetures socks are anatomically designed (left and right specific) and make use of high density cushioning to provide extra protection in high impact areas. This alone makes them super comfy, but Feetures have gone one step further and engineered a no seam toe to eliminate that common friction point.

Finally, the socks include some targeted compression to ensure no slippage and therefore a much reduced chance of blistering.

If you are looking for the right ingredients to make enhance the fit, feel and have a better run in your shoes, visit intraining Running Centre and have a look at our wide range of performance running socks that will help make your feet feel happy.

Feetures socks - available at intraining Running Centre


Diagnostic imaging – Steve Manning (podiatrist, runner & coach)
Xrays, CT Scan, Ultrasound, Bone Scan, MRI… which is best?
There are times when it is difficult to make an accurate diagnosis from clinical findings alone. When this happens we need to use diagnostic imaging to identify the actual structure which is affected.

The first decision is to decide which type of imaging is best to use to differentiate the possible diagnoses.  There are many excellent types of scans with positive and negatives of their use.  The suspected injury and type of tissue involved determines the best type of imaging to use.

Radiographs: X-rays are the most common type of imaging used.
CT Scans: Similar to x-rays but can take a picture of a slice of the bone.
Ultrasound: Imaging sends a wave into the body and read the reflection.
Bone Scans: Involves injecting dye to identify stress fractures.
MRI: The best type of scan for most musculoskeletal problems.

Modern imaging techniques assist in a more accurate diagnosis of injury. The addition of imaging techniques will assist in your health professional providing advice on the right treatment plan to recover quicker from your running injury.
