Update - Heat limited running pace

I realized that the calculator was not working due to caching, and people were seeing the same table all the time rather than one customized to their weight and height. This should be fixed now, though it may be a little slow.

Google +1

One other change to fellrnr.com - I've added the Google "+1" to the site. It will be interesting to see if people use it.

Heat limited running pace

I have just released a calculator that shows the maximum paces that can be run at given temperatures and humidities. You can see an example chart and some details of the calculations at http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Heat_limited_running_pace or you can fill in your height and weight at http://fellrnr.com/wiki/VDOT_Calculator to generate a chart customized for you. I will be making a few tweaks in near future, both to the algorithm and to reference the research that the calculator is based on. I'm also intending to create other calculators based on the same mathematical model. Let me know what you think.

Downhill running update

A minor updated to "downhill running" to add some images showing the damage to the muscles immediately and one day after damage from downhill running. The visuals help explain why your quads feel as bad as they do after a steep downhill.

stillness in motion

I have mentioned in my training entries the concept of "stillness in motion". I have attempted to convey what “stillness in motion” is and what is involved in achieving this state in this new Wiki entry. http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Stillness_in_Motion

Running and Stomach Problems

I’ve started a wiki page on stomach problems and I’d like your suggestions for additions. Any hints or tips people could try to avoid stomach issues when running? http://fellrnr.com/wiki/Running_and_Stomach_Problems

Skinfold Calipers

I've started a reworking of my page on ways of measuring body fat. I'm going to be splitting up the single large article into an overview and separate pages dedicated to the major techniques. The first new page is on calipers with the body fat scales next up.
