Seven great insights about running from Alex Hutchinson, in his last Sweat Science post for Runner’s World (I’ve highlighted my own favourites).
- Running is good for you “in moderation,” which is defined as “a lot more than you’re doing.”
- If it comes in a bottle, it’s probably not going to make you faster or healthier.
- The best technology for tracking and guiding your runs is the device between your ears.
- You probably got injured from doing too much, too soon.
- The magic workout, shoe, or superfood is whichever one you’ve been ignoring lately or have never tried.
- You can probably run better; start by running more.
- You’re capable of more than you think, but it will take time to get there.
You can now pre-order Alex’s next book, coming in early 2018: Endure: Mind, Body, and the Curiously Elastic Limits of Human Performance.
