Did you know running facts – Part 1
At the age of 73, Ed ran an astonishing 2hr53min marathon… that was over 10 years ago. Is he still running? You bet, at the age of 85 he continues to run into the record books and recorded a 3hr56min marathon in October last year.
If you ever needed some motivation to get out there and give it a go, even if others think you can’t do it… think of old Ed Whitlock.
Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!
Keep your cool with the latest summer range of clothing
Technical apparel that’s worn next to your skin—whether it’s a top, sports bra, tights, or shorts are designed to wick moisture (that is, sweat) away from your body. Clothing made of cotton, by contrast, holds sweat, makes you more prone to chafing and leaves you looking like a sweaty mess at the end of a run.
Technical clothing on the other hand dries quickly, leaving you dry and comfortable througout your session. For beginning runners on a run/walk program, gear made of high-tech fabrics can be particularly useful as it moves sweat off you during run portions so that you’re warm during the walk sections.
Whether you are an avid runner, occassional runner or just enjoy exercising outdoors, something you should not skimp on is moisture wicking clothing.
At intraining Running Centre, we have a range of technical running apparel that will help you enjoy your running that little bit more.

Exercise and extended periods of weight-bearing and walking will also usually aggravate symptoms due to increased load and strain through the aggravated Fascia. Pain may be tolerable during activity, but worse afterwards or with fatigue.
In chronic injury presentations, there is typically less inflammation and the pain is more inconsistent. Chronic pain without appropriate treatment and resolution will not only prolong recovery time, but can also increase the risk of developing …click here to view the full article in January’s From the Sole enews.
