Weekly RunDown #55

Gerry Lindgren (86) & Kenny Moore (?35)
“Courage is not a quality you teach. Courage is the by-product of self-discipline. It is an attitude.”
Gerry Lindgren

Thanks to all that visited last weeks Weekly Rundown as it was the most visited one I have had yet.  Also, thanks to all those that went to the Podcast Post and I will be adding to it as I get more links and listen to more podcasts so check back.  Really surprised at how many visited my newest post this week on rest and injuries, I guess it is a hot topic, as it is the most visited post and that is in less than 24 hours.  I am appreciative of everyone that visits, and hopefully, reads and benefits from the posts.

Now to what you came here for:)

The Spartathlon race is next week (Sept 29-30) and Will Rivera from Elizabethtown in my state of KY, and owner of the Running Soles store, is entered.  See race promo video below -  Go Will!

Don't forget the Berlin Marathon is this weekend and with Kipchoge, Bekele and Kipsang scheduled to run it could be a great race.   FloTrack will be live streaming it but you will have to have a subscription to see it.  Looks like FloTrack only for outside the US as in the US you can watch it on T.V. on the NBC Sports Network for free or stream it if you have a subscription to NBC Sports God.  However, if you are industrious there there are usually other ways to see it, hint, hint:)

The 2017 USATF 24 Hour National Championships were this past weekend

If you use HR to train do you use a chest strap or wrist sensor on the watch.  I tried a wrist sensor but found it to be off at times and this study may have proven this out.  For me part of the issue is I have really skinny wrists so that may have exacerbated the issues I had with one.

At this years Barkley Marathons when Gary apparently just missed the 60 hour cut-off and then it was found he went slightly off course the topic of rules came up and here is an article by Gary Cantrell - "Lazarus Lake" - on the subject.

Some good info on warning signs of achilles issues.  I am dealing with achilles issues and have had the issue of kicking my inside ankle as mentioned in the post.  A pop-up may come up to do the 30 Day Challenge but you can just go by that.  I have used some of the sites stretches and have benefited from them.
