Captain Fantastic Ingrid Wagner holds LGN 5km trophy
While Omnicom Media Group bagged the LGN Inter Advertising 5km team prize again last September, their flag bearer Ingrid Wagner also snaffled the prize for the most improved Run Club captain. Lowering her time from LGN’s 2011 Inter Advertising 5km of 24mins 36secs down to 22mins 29secs in 2012 and thus gaining a whopping 8.6% improvement.
At LGN we like to prolong a good news story like our Inter Advertising 5km, and therefore only recently informed Ingrid that she won our £200 prize of high tech running laboratory session at the all new Asics flagship store, we look forward to blogging about the Asics facility and revealing what their anaerobic testing equipment predicts Ingrid can run at the 2013 Inter Advertising 5km on September 5th 2013.
It may seem counter intuitive, but a vast long term study reveals that runners have less likelihood of suffering from hip problems or Osteoarthritis. The research paper assessed nearly 80,000 people surveyed over a 7 year period, and certainly can’t be described as non robust. The findings appears to support evidence that runners tend to carry less weight into older age than walkers, less weight equals less wear on joints, thus reduced risk. LGN will ask our physio partners at Back in Action UK to provide more detailed assessment soon.
