Post Articles on Running and Fitness
I'm putting this sticky topic for posting links to articles on running and/or fitness.

Ed sends this about cholesterol meds:
"This article about cholesterol meds and TGA is not just for pilots, and is good to know. Having worked in big pharm for much of my life I am very skeptical about these powerful drugs, and believe they should be avoided whenever possible. The best control of cholesterol is good diet and exercise."

Here's an article about different Marathon training programs. Gices a decent summary at the end as to which program fits different types of runners.

Post For Fitness, Intensity Matters
http://well.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/12/25/for-fitness-intensity-matters/?smid=pl-share
----------
The attached article from today's New York Times provides a good summary of all of the positive research about running this year. It also links to those other articles.
----------
For Fitness, Intensity Matters
The lesson that seemed to emerge most persistently from the fitness-related studies published this year was that intensity matters, especially if you wish to complete your workout quickly.

Interesting research finds that endurance athletes often need to drink less than they do—sometimes much less:
