Julia Jones: When to stop and when to restart

Last week I got really sick. It happened it what felt like a split second. At 10:00 a.m. I was working on the track with a group of athletes, at 11:00 a.m. I felt shivers running through my body, at noon I got out a thermometer and measured a 104c fever. There was nothing to do but go home and put myself under the covers for a week, which I did. All this could not happen at the worst moment; just three weeks from my “A” race of the season, something I had been planning and training for for over a year.I’ve seen so many amateur athletes try to ignore the symptoms of an imminent illness ...

To be reviewed and re-evaluated. That’s the case with stretching, a a word that’s become part of our every day vocabulary. In english language dictionaries they simply define stretching as lengthening and distending. In Italians dictionaries they go as far as inserting an opinion. A translation: stretching exercises, muscle extension, practiced specifically by athletes and serves to ...

STORIES BY RUN - Living in the lagoon: fresh or salt water?

In a city built on the water, permeated by water and that created its own success on waterborne commerce, it seems almost impossible that for centuries this natural resource has been the scarcest one.
