Is the Roll Recovery R8 worth the steep price?
I'm a lazy runner. One of the reasons I run is that it's so easy to do. I roll out of bed, put on my running clothes, and I'm out the door exercising. I can do this in any city and in almost any weather. I don't love biking or swimming because of all the extra work involved in getting ready and the limitations of where and when they can be done.

Someone who is busier than you is running right now.

Do max cushioning shoes leads to injuries?
"The investigators found highly cushioned (HC) shoes result in a significantly higher vertical average load rate (VALR) and vertical instantaneous loading rate (VILR), both of which have been associated with overuse injuries such as tibial stress fractures and plantar fasciitis."

Wrist/optical HR monitors are worth +10 BMP
I've had the displeasure of testing several wrist/optical heart rate monitors including those found on the Apple Watch and the Garmin Forerunner 235. I could go into detail and tell you how they only seem to work when you aren't doing anything physical, how they are terrible for running intervals, how they work ok some days and not at all other days, or how they magically seem to always add +10 to +20 BMP to your heart rate (+10 or +20 anything would be great if this was a video game).

Be just dumb enough to run fast!

I don't know if Chris Solinsky is a big fan of this video (former American record holder in the 10K) but I think it's great. It breaks down Chris' stride and tells you exactly what he does right (nothing) and what he does wrong (everything).

Any day that I am too busy to run is a day that I am too busy.
