TRANSFORM YOUR RUN THROUGH STRENGTH // BY DAVID LIPMAN

Hopefully strength training in endurance sport is not a foreign concept to you. There has been significant research into strength training for triathletes and runners of all distances in recent times and it is overwhelmingly positive. I would suggest that it is difficult to debate the utility of strength training for endurance athletes but I have also found that this is not necessarily reflected in the practices of runners. Strength training has some more traditionally…

Say Sayonara and head into the Shadows :: SHOE REVIEW BY DAVID LIPMAN

As the Sayonara is, somewhat ironically, farewelled many of us were left with the thought; “well what shoe do I run in now?” I have been a Wave Sayonara devotee since day 1, I have run through multiple pairs of the 1’s through the 4’s and loved them all. BUT if I am truly honest, I preferred the earlier models with their more minimalist design. As the model progressed it moved more towards a traditional…

SONIC BOOM :: SHOE REVIEW BY DAVID LIPMAN

Not since those words spewed out of a gaming console in the 1990s and 2000s have I been this excited about something!  Mizuno’s new season has yielded quite a few new models and a bucket load of excitement!  Some of the new entries have filled a very popular niche that was previously somewhat overlooked by the brand. The Sonic comes in to a category that is almost essential for shoe companies these days. As a…

PACE IT NOT RACE IT! // BY MELISSA VANDEWATER

There are races where we conquer and others where we learn.  In 2011, I distinctly remember going out very hard at the Sydney Half Marathon.  One massive error pre race was throwing my finish line bag on the truck, with gels still in it! The second error was my pace.  When the gun went, I took off as if I would win.  I could see the lead group of females and I was sitting just…

WHY DO I REALLY RUN? // CHRIS WHITE FROM GO RUN AUSTRALIA – 17 MARATHONS IN 2017

I have always said to people that I am a completely different person when I don’t exercise. My wife and other family members will definitely back that statement up!  I am one of these people who get bored easily and have a lot of nervous energy, so for me running is my outlet and main form of relaxation and de-stressing. I guess it is my equivalent to meditation or yoga. It would be easy to…

Motivation is high for 2017 but this why you should not go too hard, too quick! // by David Lipman

Goldilocks, Horses with Broken Backs for Courses and Stealing from Peter Aside from clearly being partial to a catchy headline and a cliché I take my greatest pleasure in helping people in their lives and athletic endeavours. It is with this in mind that I have decided to put together an article addressing some of the ultra-hip things in sports and recovery from the nerdy coal face of ‘the literature’. My closet nerd has been…

Mizuno Wave Rider 20 – The Ultimate Training Shoe by Liam Delaney

  My last few Sunday runs have been particularly good. The main difference to my usual 20-30km Sunday run is my new Wave Rider 20’s that have just landed in Australia. I’ve been running competitively for over 20 years, tried every major running shoe in that time, and I really love this shoe. The Wave Rider is a neutral mid weight (290g for the men and 240g for the women) training shoe my orthotics fit…
