  • Løb som eliten af Claus Hechmann
    - Bliv hurtigere på 5 km, 10 km, halvmaraton og maraton med Hechmann-metoden
    af Claus Hechmann

    LØB SOM ELITEN er den ultimative bog til den seriøse løber. Den handler ikke om, hvordan løb kan gøre dig lykkelig, sund eller slank, men udelukkende om, hvordan du skal træne for at blive en hurtigere løber og få mest muligt ud af dit potentiale.Bogen indeholder specialdesignede 12-ugers programmer til distancerne 5 km, 10 km, halvmaraton og maraton. Programmerne er seriøse og målrettede og arbejder på at optimere både din udholdenhed, kondition og løbeøkonomi, så du får de bedst mulige kort på hånden i den evige jagt på nye personlige rekorder. Derudover er der generelle afsnit om fysiologi, træningszoner, løbeteknik, styrketræning, træningsmængde og meget mere, så du bliver i stand til at forstå principperne bag din træning.Claus Hechmann er tidligere landsholdsløber og er i dag ansat som elitetræner i Sparta. For første gang deler han ud af alle sine træningshemmeligheder – og fortæller bl.a. om, hvorfor man faktisk kan blive hurtigere ved at løbe langsommere, og hvorfor hård intervaltræning ikke altid er nogen særlig god ide.

    - The Donkey with the Heart of a Hero
    af Christopher McDougall

    "e;Adelight, full of heart and hijinks and humor . . . McDougall is a gifted storyteller who gets to the heart of the human-animal connection."e; --John Grogan, author of Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World's Worst DogFrom the best-selling author of Born to Run, a heartwarming story about training a rescue donkey to run one of the most challenging races in America.When Chris McDougall agreed to take in a donkey from an animal hoarder, he thought it would be no harder than the rest of the adjustments he and his family had made after moving from Philadelphia to the heart of Pennsylvania Amish country. But when he arrived, Sherman was in such bad shape he could barely move, and his hair was coming out in clumps. Chris decided to undertake a radical rehabilitation program designed not only to heal Sherman's body but to heal his mind as well. It turns out the best way to soothe a donkey is to give it a job, and so Chris decided to teach Sherman how to run. He'd heard about burro racing--a unique type of race where humans and donkeys run together in a call-back to mining days--and decided he and Sherman would enter the World Championship in Colorado.Easier said than done. In the course of Sherman's training, Chris would have to recruit several other runners, both human and equine, and call upon the wisdom of burro racers, goat farmers, Amish running club members, and a group of irrepressible female long-haul truckers. Along the way, he shows us the life-changing power of animals, nature, and community.

    - Context and Contingency
    af None

    This volume of abstracts provides an insight into the contested nature of sports coaching. Detailed, yet concise, this compilation of work recognises the importance of context and the socio-historical learning environments that coaches operate within. The text draws upon the work of a range of scholars varying from doctoral students, to leading international scholars, to provide a critical 'snapshot' of the current literature in sport coaching pedagogy. In doing so, this book outlines the challenges and potential developments of sports coaching as a discipline. The gathering of such work provides an insight to a variety of research projects, proposals and findings, varying from professional football and rugby union academies to community coaching and martial arts. This is the first book to present such an array of research projects in this format and, as such, is essential reading for any serious students of sports coaching, sport pedagogy, and for practitioners looking to engage in the study of sports coaching.

  • Where Hope Springs af Dave Urwin Spar 21%
    af Dave Urwin

    One night in late January 2017, shortly after his seventeenth birthday, my cousin's eldest son Conner Urwin went to bed feeling poorly. Thinking it was the same virus his dad had been experiencing, both parents went to work the next day. Around lunch time my cousin Emma picked up a call from Conner and heard the words ';Please help me' repeated several times before the phone went quiet. A massive bleed on the brain meant his life hung in the balance and if he recovered at all he would likely be in a wheelchair and unable to communicate. Life changed forever that day, and to stay hopeful was a constant challenge in the face of a nightmare they couldn't wake up from.Alongside Conner's Story we hear from a whole range of people about what hope means to them. Some have seen their lives torn apart by mistakes they made when they were young and are desperate for a second chance. Somehad great success but then what happened next completely redefined what success means. Some see injustice all around them and are frustrated that so many seem to turn a blind eye. The one thing they have in common is that they all need hope, for the opposite of hope is despair.FEATURING: Wojtek Godzisz and Ross Cummins (The band Symposium), AdharanandFinn (Author ';Running With the Kenyans'), Joanne Hartley (IPP activist), Gary Stringer(The band Reef), Justin Gloden (National marathon record holder of Luxembourg),Charlie Carroll (Author ';No Fixed Abode'), Adam Fouracre (CEO Stand Against Violencecharity), Declan O'Shea and Christian Montagne (The band Cyclefly), Steve MacKenzie(UK fire safety expert and campaigner for justice for Grenfell), Toni Bernado (Nationalmarathon record holder of Andorra), Danny McCormack (The band The Wildhearts),Andy Hamilton (Author ';The Self-Sufficientish Bible'), James Wotton (Street Pastor), BillyIsherwood (Author ';From Alcohol to Atacama), Janus Eigaard (National marathon recordholder of Greenland) and more.

    af Dawn Dais

    Anyone can run a marathon. Dawn Dais makes it a little more bearable -- and a lot more fun Dawn Dais hated running. And it didn't like her much, either. Her fitness routine consisted of avoiding the stairs in her own house, because who really has the energy to climb stairs? It was with this exercise philosophy firmly in place that she set off to complete a marathon. The Nonrunner's Marathon Guide for Women is the ideal training manual for women who don't believe that running is their biological destiny but who dream of crossing the finish line nonetheless. Nonrunners offers a realistic training schedule and is chock-full of how-to's and funny observations, which she felt were lacking in the guides she had consulted. She also integrates entries from her journal, sharing everything would-be marathoners need to know about the gear, the blisters, the early morning workouts, the late-night carb binges, and most important of all, the amazing rewards. Running may not seem like a friendly endeavor, but with Dawn Dais, you can tame the beast and hit the marathon trail.

    The inside story of how serial predator Larry Nassar got away with abusing hundreds of gymnasts for decades -- and how a team of brave women banded together to bring him down.We think of Larry Nassar as the despicable sexual predator of Olympic gymnasts -- but there is an astonishing, untold story. For decades, in a small-town gym in Michigan, he honed his manipulations on generations of aspiring gymnasts. Kids from the neighborhood. Girls with hopes of a college scholarship. Athletes and parents with a dream. In The Girls, these brave women for the first time describe Nassar's increasingly bold predations through the years, recount their warning calls unheeded, and demonstrate their resiliency in the face of a nightmare. The Girls is a profound exploration of trust, ambition, betrayal, and self-discovery. Award-winning journalist Abigail Pesta unveils this deeply reported narrative at a time when the nation is wrestling with the implications of the MeToo movement. How do the women who grew up with Nassar reconcile the monster in the news with the man they once trusted? In The Girls, we learn that their answers to that wrenching question are as rich, insightful, and varied as the human experience itself. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px 'Times New Roman'; color: #323333; min-height: 15.0px}
