Did you know running facts – Part 2
Ed Whitlock - Aged 80 Toronto Waterfront MarathonFollowing on from our January newsletter, it is with great sadness that the man with the seemlingly endless fountain of running youth, Ed Whitlock, passed away on 13 March 2017 from prostate cancer, aged 86.

Ed Whitlock was an English-born Canadian long-distance runner, and the first person over 70 years old to run a marathon in less than three hours with an over 70 PB time of 2:54:48. Not to mention running a marathon in 3:15:54 at the age of 80. Ed has a range of  records for his age most of which are quite simply, impossible to believe. Check them out here.

Stay healthy, keep active and have a happy run!

Asics technical apparel ensures you are seen
Safety and style first…a bright decision to make
As the days continue to shortern and we are more often than not faced with running in low light conditions, it is time to start thinking about how well you are seen out running. When it comes to safety, we are all for high visibility clothing and we have a range available in store.

Image for fit purpose only. Colours may varyWhilst HI-VIS fluoro coloured clothing provide fantastic safety features, there are some of us who prefer something a little more subtle. Enter Asics’ latest range of Lite-Show apparel and footwear.

The new range of Lite-Show apparel introduced by Asics features a new technology where reflective fibres are woven directly into the fabric and bounce light back directly to it’s source.

Standard reflective clothing and Asics Lite-Show
– Lite-Show does not wear out and is permanent part of the thread.
– Lite-Show features 360 degree reflectivity.
– Increased surface area of visibility, ensuring you are seen by others.

If you are keen to increase your visibility and looking for an alternative to the fluoro hi-vis running gear to be seen, the new Asics Lite-Show range is a bright decision to make.

At intraining Running Centre, we have a range of technical running apparel for Autumn and Winter seasons that will help increase your visibility out on the road.

Asics Lite-Show technology - Available at intraining Running Centre

NEW Adidas Eyewear – Wildcharge
Seamless transition from your run to the coffee shop
When you think of running glasses or most ‘sport specific’ eyewear, one word often springs to mind if you are not out exercising, dorky. Whilst these glasses look the goods when you are pumping out the km’s, when it comes to that all important coffee shop refuel, it is time to put them away.

Worry no more, the latest rendition of function meets form comes from Adidas Eyewear’s latest Wildcharge range of sunglasses. Allowing a seamless transition from training to the cafe. Enjoy the freedom of looking good both on and off the track without second guessing yourself after catching a glimpse of yourself in the reflection of the windows at your local.

Featuring adjustable nose pads to fit even the smallest of faces, ribbed ear temples that ensure non slip comfort and is available in a range of colours to suit your every mood.

Drop by the intraining Running Centre and blur the lines between your your sport and social lifestyle.

Ankle Sprains – Doug James (physiotherapist and podiatrist)
Overcoming ankle sprain injuries – The how to…
Click here to learn more about ankle sprainsAnkle sprains are a common running injury that can result in minor short term impairment through to severe pain and chronic instability. Ankle sprain injuries can arise from seemingly innocuous event, such as stepping on a slightly uneven surface or stone, through to more predictable occurrences eg slipping during an evening trail run in wet conditions.

The ankle is most commonly sprained in an inverted position – this is where the lateral (outside) part of the foot tilts downwards and the force of your bodyweight and momentum causes one or more of the ligaments on the outside ankle bone to stretch.

Ankle sprain injuries are typically assigned a grading from 1 to 3 based on the degree of damage to the ligaments. If you are interested in finding out more about ankle sprain treatment, rehab and other information, click here to view the full article in March’s From the Sole enews.

Did you know running facts – Part 1
It is a known fact that as we age, unfortunately we get slower… or is it fact? Ed Whitlock of Canada seems to defy the basics of ageing as he continues to break world records. He now holds over 20 age records.

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 running clothing… yes it does exist!
Nike Racing Print - Lightweight and breathable. The ultimate in technical running apparelTechnical apparel may seem extravagant, but as your friends may already have found, once you go technical, there is no turning back. Technical running apparel is made from fabrics that offer performance features and benefits that your old cotton tee is sorely lacking.

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.

Lightweight material approximately 1/5th the weight of cotton teeWhether 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.

Are you Back2School ready?
How important are kids shoes really?
Your children’s footwear is a priceless investment in their future. It’s important to purchase good quality shoes, and also ensure they are well-fitted.

Are your kids worth the investment?Spending the time and money on your children’s feet and footwear during their younger years will reap many benefits throughout their schooling years and even into adulthood. Wearing good footwear will reduce their risk of short and long-term injury, and save from unexpected, expensive health practitioner bills.

Three important factors when buying kids shoes
1. Fit: Make sure your kids shoes fit them today. A mistake many parents make is buying shoes that kids will ‘grow into’. This can affect their running gait, flex shoes in the wrong place and ultimately lead to injury.
2. Quality shoes: Let’s face it, kids are tough on shoes! But, not all shoes are created equal. Yes, kids will wear through shoes quickly, but a quality pair of shoes will help them in the long term. Kids have the same bones, muscles and tendons as adults, this means they also need the cushioning and support that we as adults have.
3. Specificity: This may be a luxury for some, but if your child is an avid runner, make sure they have a pair of shoes specifically for their running and another for general wear. Doing this, like adults, will help increase the life of both shoes.

Read the full article written by intraining podiatrist, runner and coach, Emily on the importance of children’s footwear.

intraining Running Centre have a huge range of kids running shoes and black leather shoes starting from childrens size one starting at just $79.95.

Plantar Fasciitis – Emily Donker (podiatrist)
Pain in the heel that just won’t go away?
Plantar Fasciitis (or Fasciopathy) is one of the most common foot complaints seen by podiatrists and physiotherapists. Sufferers will usually complain of sharp, stabbing pain that is worst in the mornings and after periods of inactivity. During rest, soft tissue structures cool down and tighten, so they’re over-stretched with excessive load on return to activity.

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.
