Start List/Liste de Départ: Magic Pills Revealed!

J’ai mentionné hier dans mon article qu’il n’y avait aucun “entraînement magique” et que seul l’effort et une bonne relation coach-athlète va donner les bons résultats. Of course, that has not prevented people from trying. And the magic is not limited to workouts. Today’s start list is dedicated to all the little things you can do to make your training better (or not).

Thank you by the way for all the comments from yesterday. I hope that you are all at least as interested in the cool stuff other people are writing. Click the links!

Power balance bracelets: don’t work

Sleep and minerals (and ballet classes?): work

Being nice to Mr. Plow: works

Training in Kenya: works

Electron beam computed tomography: uh…works…in the sense that it can tell you that just being a runner does not make you immune to heart disease (I thought this one needed a little more explanation).
