Running often seems like the simplest sport. Nike Tn Femme Noir . Its a motion our bodies perform naturally, the only gear required is a pair of shoes (if even that) and we get to pick the pace. Around the world people run for work, play, fitness and even spiritual enlightenment.And while you might think that running is running is running, it is practiced differently depending on where you do it. From the United States obsession with analytics to Ethiopias natural approach to Japans high-mileage grind, running cultures are as unique as the countries that create them.After graduating from Rice University, NCAA All-American runner Becky Wade received a Watson Fellowship to spend a year traveling the globe and studying the way the world runs. During her journey, she met legendary sprinter Usain Bolt, ran on hallowed ground at Roger Bannister Track in Oxford and powered up mountains in Switzerland. Twenty-two countries and more than 3,500 miles later, Wade returned to America armed with new techniques and fresh perspective, which she writes about in her book Run the World, which will be released on Tuesday.As she prepped to compete in the steeplechase at the Olympic track and field trials on Monday, we caught up with the 27-year-old Wade to hear about the lessons she learned while running the world.1. Walk before you runIn London, Wade shared a flat with elite Kenyan runners, who also became her training partners. These athletes started every workout in a surprising way: Walking. The 20-minute stroll to a local park spared their joints pavement pounding, and by accelerating gradually, their bodies had ample opportunity to loosen up. [B]y the time they actually begin running, their bodies are likely more alive and responsive than most peoples ever become during the day, Wade says.2. Metrics arent requiredWade spent two months living at the Yaya Village training camp in Ethiopia and hanging with three runners dubbed the Yaya Girls. Their workouts followed a pattern: single file, off-road and uphill -- or rather, up Mount Entoto, which tops off at 10,500 feet. The Ethiopians dismissed distance-based or time-focused training in favor of running by feel. Just being really attentive to how your body feels in the moment and not overexerting, but pushing the appropriate amount for that day.3. Following is funThe Ethiopian follow-the-leader format was also good practice for distance races. You dont want to overthink things. You want other people to carry the load for as long as possible, Wade says.4. Lose control, gain gritFor pros like Wade, structure is a fact of training. But traveling meant relinquishing control -- especially when it came to workouts. Id just hop in with a group, she says. I didnt know what we would be doing or how fast wed go. And adapting on the fly isnt just for practice. Its a useful skill for bouncing back from the inevitable mid-race surprises. Just diving into those unknowns benefitted me and probably would a lot more distance runners. In Zurich, Wade attended running club TV Oerlikons Track Challenge, a medley of 10 races from 250 to 1,000 meters. The catch? Runners started each race without knowing the distance. Only an official knew the length of each event and would signal to the racers when they entered the last half lap. It was fun for the runners and it was also really fun for the spectators. Youre always wondering, is this going to be a race where the sprinters go or are the distance runners going to dominate? Hows it all going to add up? I loved that.5. Diet schmietAmerican runners, Wade says, often are focused on innovation, the latest gadget or diet trend that might offer an edge. But Wade found cultures around the world where elite athletes stuck with diets diametrically opposed to the current wisdom at home. In Japan, she fell in love with sushi as a pre-run meal. In Ethiopia, she watched the Yaya Girls rely on injera crepes, pasta, white potatoes and white rolls. In London, she joined the Kenyans for vegetable stew and Ugali, a cornmeal bread also used as a utensil. While Americans are quick to swear off bread or whatever food is taboo at the moment, Wade writes, elite runners from Ethiopia and Kenya -- the best in the world -- have been found to consume between 64 and 76 percent of their calories in carbohydrate form.6. Scones can be a recovery foodIf the word recovery evokes ice baths and Advil, its time to think more broadly. At Irelands Finn Valley Athletic Club, most practices ended with a mental cool-down in the form of tea and scones back at the clubhouse. The mental wind-down after especially hard workouts is really important and undervalued, Wade says. Meanwhile in Japan -- known for its disciplined, militaristic approach to running -- recovery was also revered. Wade had her toes nibbled at a fish spa, took a dip in onsen bathing houses and turned to acupuncture when she suffered a mild calf strain. I was surprised to find in Japan that serious athletes are really good at separating rest and recovery from their training and work schedules, Wade says.7. Runners are awesome peopleWade returned from her journey not only primed for a killer marathon -- five months after her return to the United States Wade won the California International Marathon in her first shot at the distance, finishing in 2 hours,30 minutes and 48 seconds -- but also fired up about the community shed joined on the road. It is such a positive and kind and quirky group of people that share this one thing in common, but [running is] such a powerful thing that it fosters instant connection, Wade says. Im just very proud to be a runner. Nike Tn 2018 . -- Patrick Reed got an early start in golf. Nike Air Max Plus TN Ultra Argent Gris/Noir/Rouge .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. http:///...ouge-898015-421.html . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. DETROIT -- The Detroit Tigers will be without their biggest star as they aim to complete a sweep of the Chicago White Sox in the series finale Wednesday at Comerica Park.First baseman Miguel Cabrera will sit out the matinee because of a flare-up of his surgically repaired right ankle.According to manager Brad Ausmus, this has been an issue bothering him dating back to the series against the Minnesota Twins.His ankle, his surgical ankle, it flares up from time to time. It happened in Minnesota and he kind of felt it again last night so we decided with the off day [on Thursday] wed just give him almost three full days, Ausmus said.The Tigers are hoping, with a day off Thursday, that Cabrera will be able to return to the lineup Friday when the team faces the Kansas City Royals at Kauffman Stadium.Ausmus said that Cabreras right ankle, which was surgically repaired after the Tigers were eliminated from the playoffs in 2014 and hampered him last season, worsens in poor weather because of the air pressure. It may be something the 33-year-old slugger needs to stay on top of for the rest off his playing career. Nike Air Max Plus Tn Ultra Pas Cher. I mean, it wouldnt shock me, especially if bad weather was rolling in or something, that he would feel it for the rest of his life, Ausmus said.Cabrera, the Tigers lone 2016 All-Star, is batting .308 with 28 home runs and 81 RBIs this season. Replacing him at first base on Wednesday is catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia.The Tigers are also without two other key position players as they try to catch the Cleveland Indians in the AL Central pennant race. Third baseman Nick Castellanos (hand) is not expected back until mid-September and center fielder Cameron Maybin is ailing from the aggravation of the thumb injury that landed him on the disabled list earlier this month. He exited Mondays game after injuring the thumb in an attempt to steal second base, but an MRI revealed no structural damage.Ausmus said the team is optimistic that Maybin could also return on Friday.I dont know what the odds are, but thats the hope, Ausmus said.
