the trails never end

NEVER BEFORE HAS trail running been quite so mainstream nor quite so popular! So, welcome to any newbies who have just discovered the amazing, healthy, inspirational and downright addictive world of off-road adventures. Of course, it’s been a tough time for all of us and we appreciate everyone who has been in touch to tell us about your own brilliant achievements and how you have coped with the unusual situation we’ve all found ourselves in.

running inspiration

WELSH WONDER Parkrun world record holder Charlotte Arter pounds the deserted sands of Rhossili beach on the Gower Peninsula. With some of the best scenery – and trails (naturally) – this remote corner of the UK is one of our Isles’ hidden wonders.

running is the best medicine

Heartwarming news We know running is good for the heart but a recent study showed the improvements occur remark ably quickly. Comparing health checks carried out six months before and three weeks after a marathon debut, the experiment found new runners enjoyed improved blood pressure and a reduction in the stiffness of the aortic vessel (a good thing), despite averaging only 6-13 miles per week in training. Run for power It’s a sad consequence of ageing that our natural strength deteriorates from middle-age onwards. However, in the first study of its kind – carried out at Ball State University – women aged over 70 who had exercised consistently for 50 years were found to have better muscle power than females of the same age who had been inactive.

going the extra mile?

We’ve all looked at our GPS devices on crossing the finish line and found the distance to be more than we signed up for. However, a recent study by researchers at the University of Cape Town showed the devices can be anywhere from 0.06-1.9% out – that’s 60-190m in a 10k race. Reporting earlier this year in the International Journal of Sports Science & Coaching, the findings – based on 255 runners’ devices in the Two Oceans Marathon – showed they were less reliable when turns and undulations were involved. Also of note was that mobile phone recording was the most inaccurate. The authors pointed out that the fact runners tend to carry these in pockets or waistbands rather than on the wrist could be a contributing factor. 25 The number of minutes of…

which meat should you beat?

RED MEAT Although higher in fat, red meat is generally considered to be a better source of nutrients, including vitamins such as iron, zinc and B vitamins. However, high consumption has been linked to several forms of cancer and a higher risk of cardiovascular disease. WHITE MEAT White meat such as turkey and chicken is a leaner source of protein and many micronutrients. Like red meat, it’s also a good choice for carnivores who are on a carb-free diet. VERDICT Both are fine for you in moderation. But the NHS recommends you cut down if you are eating more than 90g of meat per day, particularly red and processed meat. For that reason, we’d say unprocessed white meat just about shades it.…
