Can Compression Socks Help You Run Faster

Compression socks have gained a lot of popularity over the last few years. If you haven't seen them, they're the odd looking tight, long socks that come up to just below your knee.

New Running Camp - includes video taping each runner

I wanted to let you know about a new Core Running Camp that I'll be holding on Nov. 20 & 27 in North Vancouver. This two-day camp will include video taping each runner on a treadmill to highlight common running errors. Watching yourself and other runners is a great way to learn how to run better.

Healthy Eating Workshop

Happy New Year!  I hope you had an enjoyable Christmas holidays like I did.  I took some much needed R & R and let myself indulge in some sweets, drinks and overeating a litte.  I still managed to get my workouts in and am on track with my marathon training, which I'm really enjoying. 
The next area I'm going to focus on is getting my nutrition back on track.  Sure I had fun on the holidays but I could feel a difference in my energy and body with the added sugar, alcohol and not being as diligant with getting my veggies in. 

Happy Holidays and Have Healthy New Year!

I wanted to wish you a happy holiday season and all the best in the New Year.  As my final post for 2009, here's a quick tip for improving your fitness and health in 2010.
