Exercise addiction is a complex construct that examines maladaptive patterns relative to exercise behavior. This phenomenon, though not clinically recognized as a disorder, describes a condition where an individual has a compulsion to exercise excessively, often causing detriments to his or her physical and psychological wellbeing. The purpose of this study was to identify which psychosocial and behavioral factors are best able to predict exercise addiction in long-distance runners. Two hundred ...

There are a growing number of cancer survivors in the USA. Despite lifestyle behaviors being strongly associated with morbidity and mortality following primary treatment, recruitment to clinical research studies that aim to improve such behaviors remains a significant challenge. Furthermore, pilot and feasibility studies are critical for the refinement of research methods and form an important training opportunity for early career scientists. This report details the challenges faced and lessons ...

Background: Mindfulness-based interventions (MBIs) to address self-regulation and lifestyle behaviors (diet, physical activity) may benefit endometrial cancer survivors (ECS), who are at increased risk for morbidity and mortality associated with obesity. However, the acceptability of mindfulness training and whether it can augment behavior change in ECS is unknown. We aimed to examine; 1) the feasibility of the Mindfulness in Motion + Diet (MIM+D) intervention and 2) the preliminary efficacy of ...

Purpose Personality traits may play a part in whether a person chooses to run (or not run) barefoot. The purpose of this study was, therefore, to characterize the personality variables of this population and compare them to shod runners and to the general population.

Time perception during exercise may be affected by chosen intensity, and may also affect enjoyment of exercise and subsequent long-term adherence. However, little is known about how individuals perceive the passage of time during exercise, or if factors such as sex are influential. The purpose of this study was to determine if there are sex related differences in perception of time during a bout of exercise in experienced runners. Twenty-two recreational runners (11 men, 11 women) participated i...

Chronic inflammation plays an important role in lung carcinogenesis. Few prospective studies have examined associations between lung cancer, serum C-reactive protein (CRP), a measure of systemic inflammation, and inflammatory lifestyle factors, such as smoking and obesity. This study prospectively examined the relationship between CRP and lung cancer death and its interrelationships with several lifestyle factors. Baseline data on smoking and other lifestyle variables were collected for 8,950 pa...

The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of endpoint knowledge on psychophysiological variables. Twenty-two runners (11 men and 11 women) participated in 2 conditions: a run with an unknown endpoint and a run to the same distance with knowledge of the endpoint. Rating of perceived exertion (RPE), affect, heart rate, and attentional focus were assessed during testing. Subjects ran faster when the endpoint was known (p 0.05). There were differences in attentional focus between conditi...

Self-efficacy (SE) has been found to be a robust predictor of success in achieving physical activity (PA) goals. While much of the current research has focused on SE as a trait, SE as a state has received less attention. Using day-to-day measurements obtained over 84 days, we examined the relationship between state SE and PA. Postmenopausal women (n = 71) participated in a 12-week PA intervention administered via cell phone and monitored their daily PA using a pedometer. At the end of each day, ...
