CRMag: massage and lactic acid, Achilles debridement, reading on the treadmill and more
The September-October issue of Canadian Running magazine is back from the printers, and should be in the mail and on newsstands soon. As usual, lots of good stuff — a profile of Ray Zahab, a pilgrimage through the three big-city U.S. fall marathons, and a Q&A with the ever-entertaining Reid Coolsaet, who’s currently in Berlin to run the marathon at the World Championships. Also, our editorial director, Dave Chaundy-Smart, tried out the Internet coaching offered by legendary Olympic marathoner Jon Brown. And finally, my regular Science of Running column covers the relationship between vitamins and exercise, a new gadget for reading on a treadmill, a new approach to Achilles tendinitis, the physiology of massage, and good news about marathons and heart damage.
