Weekly Newsletter November 28th 2013

This week's newsletter on November 28th 2013 covers interesting articles, our current competitions, recent updates, and events coming up over the next two weeks.

== Interesting articles ==

"Simon Cowell is killing running"
"I know running and runners and have read and learned a lot about how to run. I have discovered a truth that I have yet to see disproven and I would love for someone to try and discredit it. Here it is. Once comfort is taken care of; never in the history of running has a bit of kit made anyone faster. Ever." Read more.

Interviewing people while running

Benefits of polarized training
With polarized training, most workouts are either very hard or very easy. In one study, runners using a program like this improved their 10K times by five percent, while those who did more running in the middle - and trained harder overall - improved by just 3.6 percent. Here's how to polarize your plan.
