Volcano Run!!

Posted on by Team Accelerate

A late summer holiday and trip to Lanzarote for Team Accelerate Runner, Izzy-Mai. This involved a week of warm weather training and family fun that took in a run up the local Volcano.   Izzy-Mai recounts a morning of running fun on the Lava strewn volcano. “It all began while laying around the pool in Lanzarote, glancing across the volcanic landscape. I began a conversation with my mum and dad about the volcanoes and how I was eager and excited to explore them. After a little research, I realised that I could experience what it felt like to run on … Continue reading

Light Speeds Ahead

Posted on by Run Stu

This coming February sees the arrival of the latest Saucony Kinvara.  The Kinvara12 is set for a radical update yet remains true to its heritage. So what can we expect? Lightweight with an almost minimalist approach, yet with enough cushioning and support for everyday training, the Kinvara has always been popular.  For some it have proved to more of a nifty and responsive racer for others a shoe for fast day training.  A traditional shoe in so many ways, resisting the trend towards oversized and max-cushioned shoes. One of the most popular incarnations of the Kinvara from the last couple … Continue reading

Winter. Love it or loath it living in the UK its something we can’t get around. When you combine that with heading into the hills. What to carry in your pack can be life saving. Now this list is personal and will vary depending on where about you are running. For instance, nipping up and down the canal toe past you might need to take less vs heading up a snow-capped peak you might pack more. This is simply a guide to work from. Waterproofs, both Jacket and Trousers with taped seams An extra base layer, Merino is great as … Continue reading

Road to Madeira, A Virtual Race Report by Dot Kesterton

Posted on by Team Accelerate

Worldwide Virtual 10K Masters Challenge Championship.   The running year started promisingly enough for me with a chilly England qualifying half marathon in Helsby, Chester in January. Being freezing cold I nipped round in 1:43:39 so I could get back to my big coat as soon as my legs would carry me, 1st F65 and qualifier for England International in Fleet in March.   Storm Dennis put paid to my February BMAF 10K Championship in Poole. Then, in March, came the Covid-19 lockdown. The England representation half marathon in Fleet was canceled and so, month on month was every other … Continue reading

Dynafit Feline SL, Tried and Tested

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

The Feline SL from Dynafit is the first in their new trail running range. It’s the combination of a shoe for high alpine terrain too rough and muddy peak district slopes. Striking colorways isn’t the only reason they will have you turning your head for a second look. While still a relatively unknown brand in the UK, Dynafit has a big presence in the European sky touring seen. We are seeing some exciting things coming from them in the coming season not just in the new shoes they have but also in their high-performance apparel. Ultramarathon runner and Accelerate community … Continue reading

Running with Music, To Tune or Not To Tune.

Posted on by Accelerate Running Store

The do or don’t, the divider of runners everywhere. Running with music is a lifesaver for some it’s a distraction that can get you out the door and keep you going when it gets tough. For others, it’s a terrifying thought, the disruption of your flow or not feeling connected to nature. All of us here at Accelerate are in the no music camp. So to get the inside sweep of why you might want to run with tunes we had a chat with one of our community members who is often seen running with a pair of headphones, Jason … Continue reading

Team A, The A Team

Posted on by Team Accelerate

I’m writing this after a tough, dark and windy solo session. Just a getting it done session. It’s the first proper session I have done since we have gone back into lockdown. This has got me thinking about how much value a team brings. If you have always been solo or always been part of a team, you may not be fully aware of how valuable it is. However, having been a member of (in my opinion) one of the best training groups out there to then having to go back to training solo is very weird. The Team Momentum: … Continue reading

Maximum Heart Rate? Forget It…

Posted on by Run Stu

It keeps on coming up on social media. Plus, I am continually asked about maximum heart rate and how to calculate it. The reason it would appear is to calculate those all important training zones that help maximise folks training, yet the question should be asked if there is a better way? I hear about some new amazing formula all of the time, yet the truth is they do not work for that many people. Formulae Do Not Work, OK! There is no one size fits all here, merely normal ranges of what we would expect. It all started with … Continue reading
