School of Kinesiology alumni Emma Lee, PhD, is the lead author of a publication, “Effects of marathon training on maximal aerobic capacity and running economy in experienced marathon runners,” in the Journal of Human Sport and Exercise. Chris Lundstrom, PhD, lecturer and M.Ed. director at the School of Kinesiology, co-authored this publication.
Due to the fact that there is little knowledge about the “physiological changes that occur in competitive runners over a marathon training cycle,” the article studies the impact of running conditions for marathon trainers. It also evaluates race performance under different temperatures.
