I’m a runner, even though I also cycle, walk and ski cross–country. I’m also a retired medical doctor, and I’m fascinated by how the human body works.
Runners are very special people. We are solely responsible for all our successes and failures, and our bodies are the only equipment we have. The fatigue and the solitude of long runs force us to think about ourselves, our limits and our capacities. We will therefore benefit more than anyone else from a sound knowledge about how our bodies work.
In this blog I would like to talk about exercise physiology, a fascinating science exploring just that: what happens to us when we exercise? There will be also posts on other health topics, because just as running affects our health, health affects our running.
My posts will always be based on published scientific evidence, but please let me know what you think.
