November 15, 2019 – Salty Running
This week’s roundup is coming to you from in all probability the second one maximum glorious position within the United States, Portland, Oregon. Alas, I’m no longer going to make it to Eugene, however let’s face it: the rest touched by means of Nike has form of misplaced its luster. At least, it has for me.
Speaking of Nike, this week’s Fast Women e-newsletter kicks off with an incredible piece on Mary Cain. It is well-written, complete, and I will be able to’t learn it with out getting disappointed once more. First, this tradition wasn’t restricted to Salazar, et al.’s remedy of Cain, however perpetuated all the way through the staff’s historical past. And this isn’t only a Nike-Salazar, it is unfortunately quite common throughout ladies’ and girls’s observe and box. How many extra instances can we permit organizations and coaches to harm ladies athletes? This remedy is systemic and additional proof of a deeply rooted gendered machine that marginalizes, silences, and harms ladies athletes. I agree that one answer is extra ladies in management and training roles, however there additionally must be actual penalties for those movements along side deep systemic trade.
The North Face 50-mile championships are this weekend, and irunfar.com has a complete preview of the ladies’s race. Most attention-grabbing rather than the profiles is the reside updates to who isn’t racing (as indicated by means of strikethrough). It’s like gazing paint dry, however I’m right here for it.
Just if you weren’t already feeling a ton of power not to get injured, it sounds as if, being worried about getting injured is also contributing in your chance of having injured once more. Okay, it’s no longer that straightforward, however nonetheless, didn’t we have now sufficient to fret about?
This piece, from TrainingPeaks, is written for coaches, however I believe this is a excellent learn for someone getting back from a race that didn’t pass as deliberate. Although, I want they’d have began with, “yo, it’s totes fine to be bummed, but like, only for a bit.” This is why they don’t get me to write down those articles, obviously.
In the arena of ideas I like and will utterly get in the back of, RobustRunnerChicks includes a ladies runner in a good approach this is motivating and provoking each and every week. You can nominate a runner (together with your self) to be featured within the collection.
Finally, this. Yes, simply sure. Worse is pants with wallet sewn closed. I will be able to’t even.
