  Quote of the Week  
Cross-Training - "If your primary purpose is to improve your running performance, cross-training does not help you much," says Hirofumi Tanaka, Ph.D, an exercise scientist at the Univeristy of Texas at Austin and author of a review of published studies on cross-training. "There is n important principle in exercise trainng called the 'specificity of training'---that is, exercise you perform in practices needs to be as close as possible to the actual competition." ~ From the May issue of Running Times.

  Book/Video/Movie of the Month - July, 2016  
Peter Snell and the Kiwis Who Flew Peter Snell and the Kiwis Who Flew By Vern Walker (Author)
This was the great era (1956-1965) when New Zealand middle and long-distance runners showed a clean pair of heels to the world...Peter Snell, Murray Halberg, Bill Baillie, Marise Chamberlain, John Davies, Jeff Julian, Barry Magee and Neville Scott. It was a decade when 'black' signalled a tough time for opponents everywhere. Amazingly, a grand total of 23 world records or world best times were set or equalled by New Zealand runners. In the Olympic and Commonwealth Games arenas Kiwi runners won medals of every colour - gold, silver and bronze. A total of fourteen medals, with five gold medals won by the incomparable Snell. Kiwi runners climbed to the top of the podium in such far-flung places as Cardiff, Dublin, London, Boston, Honolulu, Houston, Los Angeles, Portland, San Diego, Toronto, Cape Town, Durban, Pretoria, Fukuoka, Tokyo, Cologne, Helsinki, Oslo, Rome, Stockholm, Turku, Zagreb, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. It was a decade when Peter Snell and a band of Kiwi runners took on the world.
