Maximize the Minimum: train less, reduce injuries, get faster?

Minimalist Training

About 3 years ago, in an attempt rid myself of chronic running injuries, I started running less mileage, focusing on the quality of my runs rather than weekly mileage. To my surprise, I started getting faster, closing in on some of my personal best times. After just 6 months of training this way, I set personal bests at 10 miles 57:29 and 5k 16:39.

Review of "Diet Cults" by Matt Fitzgerald

In his book, Diet Cults, Matt Fitzgerald lumps all diets into one category — cults. These “cults” he says, are fundamentally flawed, and the evidence of their flaw is that they all assert their superiority over one another. Since they can’t all be correct, they must all be wrong. From there, his book takes us on a bizarre journey jumping from one of Matt’s pet “diet cult” peeves to another, all while cherry picking research that conforms to his own beliefs about what constitutes a healthy diet.

Dr. Ray on Proper Running Shoes, Paleo Diet, Running Performance

I talk with Dr. Ray McClanahan about the importance of proper footwear. Dr. Ray tells about the mechanics of the foot and how important it is to allow it to function naturally. We also discuss Dr. Ray's running and how it has improved since he started to follow a Paleo-style diet. Dr. Ray is a 13 min 5k runner, and gives some great tips on how to achieve fast times while respecting your body.
