Yes, I'm seriously going to talk about a blanket that helps you perform as a runner, so get comfortable and settle in while I unpack a bit of the science here. This could be the best news you've heard all day!

First things first. You need to know what this "special blanket" is we're talking about. Ever heard of weighted blankets? Until recently I had never heard about how powerful they...

Namaste, my running friends, it's time to get your stretch on if you want to level up your run. You may have heard about the benefits that you can get from incorporating a yoga routine into your training, but if not I'll walk you through a few of the main reasons you'll want to roll out your mat and strike a pose.

For most runners, there is a love-hate relationship with hills. Mid-workout a big nasty hill can tear out your soul and leave you bent over clasping your knee-caps. Post workout, however, once the benefits of the work you put in are realized, you can see significant improvements in your running performance. 

In this weeks post, we'll take a look at the reasons you'll want to incorporate...

As Jack Frost is finally starting to back off and spring is getting closer, its time to get that pep back in your step and shake off the winter blues. For many runners, months of isolation on the treadmill or even a total hiatus from training has left your stride flat, your lungs heavy, and your motivation low. It's perfect time to get back in the groove and kickstart your running.

There certainly can be situations that prevent someone from being able to run without knee pain and in these cases, a different sport could well be the solution. If however, you fall in the camp with those other runners that experience chronic knee pain that com...

At the time of this post, there are just over 6 weeks until the running of the 122nd Boston Marathon on April 16th. For many, it will be the first time toeing the line at the most iconic race in the world, and likely an accomplishment that has taken some blood, sweat, and tears to achieve.

Running is such a natural human movement, but for so many of us it's not as natural as it should be. Truth is, 8 out of 10 runners have some issues (some big, some small) in their running stride, that are ultimately impacting the effectiveness of their running endeavours.

Why does this matter? Well if you fit into this statistic, and it's good odds you do, the first problem you're facin...

If you're looking to run faster, stronger or simply just be more durable as a runner, the Tempo Run should be a regular workout in your rotation. If you're a bit confused and asking; How do I run a tempo run? What pace should I run?  How far should it be, well slow down (at least for a moment) and let me explain.

The intensity of a Tempo Run is best described at a pace that is comf...

Music or no music? That is the question in this weeks post, and it's a good one. There's more to it than you might think, so let me walk you through the pros and cons of taking the tunes with you out on the roads.

Disclaimer - Under no circumstance would listening to Justin Bieber constitute as music, and thus is not considered with the scope of this article. If you are running and lis...
