In truth, we actually have 6 articles and 1 video. Our inspiration video for this week is meant to get you out there on these chilly November days when your inner voice is probably begging you to stay indoors.

Our articles include running myths, suggestions to improve your fitness whilst at work, a reflection on the growth of competitive events and what lies behind the organising of any ultra running event. Finally, we have a short piece on mindful breathing to improve your performance and our very own RunUltra article by Karina Teahan on stress fractures, in case you missed it.
