Standard treadmills only reach a maximum incline of around 9 degrees. But this one, developed by a team of physiologists at the University of Colorado Boulder, goes all the way to 45 degrees. The unique contraption is providing some insights into the best strategies for extreme uphill running.
The British astronaut Tim Peake clearly likes a challenge. Not content with merely heading into space on December 15th, he’s also agreed to run a marathon aboard the International Space Station.
You should run, and you’re more likely to keep at it with better gear. You don’t need the most expensive running shoes on the shelf, but you should buy good ones. So tell us, which running shoes do your feet prefer?
After months of waiting impatiently, Spotify’s Running feature, which matches music to your running pace in an attempt to move yo ass, is finally coming to Android. Update your app through the Play Store, then get running.
Why do we seek out challenging experiences in the outdoors? And why does the pain, suffering and risk make them more rewarding? We talked to a leading sports psychologist to find out.
TomTom’s first running watch was a great first step two years ago. Last year it got even better, with an integrated heart rate monitor. For this year’s watches, TomTom is adding full activity tracker capabilities and the ability to stream music to Bluetooth headphones, all for a pretty reasonable price.
Sure, this is totally normal behavior. See mountain, hike mountain, run mountain. But not when the ridge of the mountain is so ridiculously narrow that you’re basically standing on a 2D structure where you can just as easily fall off on either side. But that’s nothing to Sebastien Montaz-Rosset, he runs and leaps and…
People love Soffe Men’s Running Shorts, a.k.a. Ranger Panties. That is evidenced in their 1,250 Amazon reviews, the vast majority of which are five stars. People even like to include images of themselves wearing the comically tiny shorts, bragging about how close to exposed your penis is while flopping around on a jog.
Running is big business. There are shoes, clothes, fitness trackers, apps, and countless other products that promise to make us faster—or at least distract us from our pain. For me, music is the only thing that’s ever worked. So when Spotify announced a way to “change the way you run forever,” I leapt at the chance.…
For those of us who haven’t “upgraded” to a smartwatch or sports watch, the ability to run and/or workout with our phones comfortably and unhindered is still essential. Let’s band together and find the best smartphone running band.
Today, The New York Times has a piece out on the maximalist running shoe, a trend now old enough to warrant an article written with characteristically Times-ian remove from rigorous examination of its subject. The thing about these shoes, though, is that even if the Times had wanted to conduct a more thorough…
On Sunday, from the moment 30-year-old Dennis Kimetto breasted the tape at the Berlin Marathon at 2:02:57 to set a new world record by 26 seconds, conversation in certain circles turned to what this meant for the assault on a sub-two-hour marathon.
Polar has made plenty of GPS exercise watches, an activity tracker, and even a GPS watch-slash-activity tracker, but this is the first time the company has made a wearable device that looks good and won't break the bank. At $200, we could actually see the Polar M400 ending up on some wrists.
The Fenix 2 is the watch Garmin has made to appeal to active people who might end up doing... well, just about anything outdoors. It's not just for runners, just for swimmers, just for snowboarders, or just for hikers, it's for people who want a single watch to track their complete athletic lifestyle. The good…
The FuelBand is dead but who cares, really. Because who needs a fitness tracker that tells you how much you already ran? Now, thanks to The Onion, we have Nike's new +Runlogic, which can tell you exactly what you're running to escape.
Since it seems like every company and its mother-company has a fitness tracker these days, it's refreshing when we see one that actually brings something unique to the table. Runtastic (the company behind my current favorite running app) has a new tracker called the Orbit. It's different!
It's possible to walk on water. I mean, you can skip a stone across water too, right? It's just not exactly humanly possible. Water can theoretically support the weight of a human only if they have beyond enormous feet or if they can run stupid fast. How fast?
