The Saucony Endorphin Pro

Posted on by Team Accelerate

I have been lucky enough to get my hand on a pair of the Endorphin Pro’s. The latest entry from Saucony in the carbon shoe battle happening right now. If you head to any busy running area you are bound to see at least a couple of people wearing carbon plated shoes. Ever since the first few companies released carbon plated shoes and amassed a cult following, PB’s and world records started dropping like flies. Until now I haven’t had a pair, so when the Endorphins bounced through the door I was very interested to see if the hype they … Continue reading

Running and Music, a perfect harmony by Will Burton

Posted on by Team Accelerate

Will Burton is a member of Team Accelerate-SCOTT, and regularly trains with the watchful eye of coach Stu. However Will is also incredible when it comes to playing the Tuba, so amazing in fact he made it to the finals for Young Muscian of the Year for Brass instruments. Post competition Will has put pen to paper with his thoughts on the correlation between running and music. With music, just like running, I feel it is always important to push yourself. In both disciplines, finding new challenges brings about the greatest improvement.   I was certainly nervous before the competition, … Continue reading

Movement Matters, A reason to run

Posted on by Accelerate Community

Thanks to Laura Hogg for this amazing buzz post, she is a sports therapist for the Accelerate Performance Centre and a keen runner and cyclist. Hear some of her thoughts on the benafits of regular movement. Like most at the moment, I am incredibly grateful that outdoor exercise is considered essential activity.

Personally, I’m hoping not to slip into sedentary habits whilst working and living from home – even … Continue reading
