Participating in long-distance endurance events, such as 26 miles marathon, causes a degree of muscle damage and inflammation for the runners. It takes several days to recover, the more experienced a runner the faster the speed of recovery.
Cherries help speedy recovery of marathon runners.
I have just read a scientific report that claims that athletes who drink the juice of Montmorency cherries recover faster after Marathon running.
Medicinal benefits of cherries
According to the scientist: –
The phytochemicals, in particular, anthocyanins found in Montmorency cherries have anti-inflammatory and antioxidating properties, which the research has shown to be effective in helping exercisers to recover from strenuous physical activity.
So, next time you finish that long run, instead of drinking plain water mix it up with Cherry juice.
In my 5 years of marathon running I have seen some awesome Slogans written on runners T-shirts. The best are those slogans written on the backside of runners T-shirts. If you are behind a runner with a slogan written on his backside, the message can either inspire you or piss you off!
Slogans On running T-shirts that inspire
1. Pain is only temporary
2. Lets kick some ASSSSSS
3. Just do it
4. Its a piece of cake
5. I will let my running do the talking
Running T-shirt Slogans that can piss you off
1. You are now last
2. If you cant keep up with me, be a spectator
3. At least am not last – from a runner who beat you to the finish line.
I was reading a running shorts review on runners world that featured eight running shorts. One interesting aspect of the shorts is the names, without the word shorts next to them you wouldn’t know what they are. Some of the names would be mistaken for: fish oil, ammunition, sports team, sports drinks.
1. Mens Nike Pinnacle Shorts
2. Mens Hind Omega Shorts
3. Womens Adidas Adistar shorts
4. Womens Moving Comfort Endurance shorts
5. Mens Brook sharper
6. Mens Under Armour Pacer shorts – This was the best name
