I just found a legit reason to run faster: It makes you age slower.

Brandon Marshall Ran 24 MPH on a Treadmill

This embed is invalid

Brandon Marshall’s offseason training regimen apparently includes sprinting at obscene speeds for several seconds at a time. He was able to accomplish the feat of running 24 miles per hour — which translates to a 2.5-minute mile — for a couple seconds without turning into roadkill, which is rather miraculous when you really think about it. 88 more words

20 second, one minute, four minute and ten minute workouts, Facts and Foolish

Recently, I came across some really goofy stuff concerning the duration of work outs and their efficacy. A twenty second work out! This is a cruel joke on the unsuspecting.  766 more words

Usain-BoltUsain Bolt spoke to the media for the first time since it was revealed last month he suffered a foot injury, calling it “nothing serious,” confirming he’s back in training and saying his coach believes he can lower his world records. “My experience [the foot injury] has taught me that that’s just the nature of the sport,” Bolt told the Jamaica Gleaner. “Setbacks are a part of track and field. I have come to accept that a long time ago. I had mine, and [I'm] now back in training preparing for the upcoming season.” The six-time Olympic champion’s first scheduled meet of 2014 is June 17 in Ostrava, Czech Republic. That would be a very late season opener by his standards. Usain Bolt discussed the debut of the World Relay Championships in the newspaper interview, but he did not say if he will be competing. That event is May 24-25 in Nassau, Bahamas. He also said his coach, Glen Mills, said he thinks it’s “very possible” that Bolt can break his world records. His 100m and 200m world records (9.58 and 19.19) still stand from 2009. Bolt, 27, is likely to play it safer this year since there are no Olympics nor a World Outdoor Championships. “I just want to run some fast times and finish the season injury free so I can focus on these three major championships coming up,” Bolt said, citing the 2015 World Championships, 2016 Olympics and 2017 World Championships.

When I am going to beat Mo Farrah and Usain Bolt: the weakness of linear projections

Yesterday I set a new personal best (PB) for the Finsbury Park 5k Parkrun: 23 minutes and 50 seconds – 5 seconds faster than my previous PB, set on 22 February and a full 170 seconds faster than my first (completed – there was a previous failure!) run on 29 June last year. 197 more words
