The 100 Day Marathon Plan is a book written by one of the best Norwegian runners. As a runner, Marius Bakken was dedicated to training and improving. This is mainly why he also decided to study the method of training that Kenyan and Italian runners practice.

Dr. Bakken noticed that he was the fastest non-Kenyan runner for 5000 m events. He then decided to go to Kenya and learn more of their training methods. He also went to Italy to train with the best Italian runners. He ran in competitions until he decided to pursue his studies in 2007.

Kenyan method

Kenyans are known for their performance in long distance running. The methods that they use for marathon training has been working for almost a generation. Dr. Bakken shares what he learned from them in his book.

Italian method

Italian runners have learned how to be their best during competitions. Their training makes sure that they are not tired or over-training for any event. Their methods are honed to make sure that a runner performs at their peak during any event.

World class training

The book aims to hone the skills of any marathoner. Through reading it, any runner can practice methods employed by Kenyans and Italians. This is the best combination that a runner can learn and improve from.

The plan indicated on the book is meant to make any runner perform at international level. The book and employing the training methods in it can get them there.

Twenty five supplemental videos are also available to any person who buys the book. These are instructional videos that can further facilitate training.

Anyone who purchases the book also gets access to Dr. Bakker.  The book is merely a part of the package. Through buying it, a runner can ask Dr. Bakker about anything regarding the training methods and running. It is an e-book which means that there is no need to wait and one can get it as soon as possible.

Formula 1200 Is The Racing League For The Rest Of Us

Race car driving is challenging, fun and expensive. Many people who have the talent to become a competitive driver and appear on television in the Indy 500 or on the streets of Monaco in a Formula One car never get the chance. The sport is simply too expensive for most young talents to give it a try.

Harry O’Neal believes that just isn’t fair and knows an affordable way for boys and girls to test their talent on the track. Harry is the president of the Ontario chapter of the Formula 1200 Driver’s Association. If you aren’t familiar with Formula 1200, perhaps you have heard of Formula Vee. They are the same international racing league.

A decent Formula 1200 car costs between $10,000 and $12,000. Fees and expenses for a race weekend run from $350 to $500. Expenses will be higher if the car gets damaged, but not significantly. O’Neal points out that rebuilding the front end costs about $500 for a Formula 1200 car compared to $2000 for a Formula Ford.

O’Neal is quick to point out that the key to success in Formula 1200 is the driver’s skill. The rules dictate that every car in the field has nearly identical performance. Stock Volkswagen 4 cylinder, 1200 cc, air-cooled engines are in every Formula 1200 car. They cannot weigh less than 464 kilograms and the wheels, brakes and transaxle are all VW stock.

Even though the engines only produce 55 to 60 horsepower, the cars can reach 200 km/h on a long straight. Because these are small cars, with a low center of gravity, it feels much faster to the driver. Formula 1200 is an exciting racing league and a great way for young drivers to experience the sport of open wheel racing. Best of all, this is a league that doesn’t require a huge budget to compete.

Make no mistake, however, if you have the talent in Formula 1200, there is every possibility you could pilot a car in one of the major racing leagues down the road. Nikki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi and Bobby Rahal all proved themselves in Formula 1200. This is a growing sport in Canada and around the world. If you know a youngster with a passion for racing but lacking the budget to compete in Formula Atlantic or Formula Ford, introduce them to Formula 1200. There is no telling how far they might go.
