Every weekend, we also bring you the pick of the stories that we published through the week. That way, in case you missed it the first time around, you can read it now. In this week’s selection, we have two stories on how to prepare for long distance races like marathons and triathlons. And we also have a third story on the best shoulder workouts.

What’s more, they seem to be the main reason why running records are tumbling every year. In this story, Shrenik Avlani gives you the lowdown on the most cutting edge carbon plated shoes out there.
