Issue: #38          Marathon Edition

April 2014

So, You Just Finished Running Boston...


...Now What Do You Do?

A lot of time is spent training for a marathon. You put in all the mileage, eat all the right foods, get the right amount of rest...and now you have completed a marathon! So, what do you do now?? You start your recovery...and you start the minute that you finish the race! Here is a simple, to the point list of things you should do immediately after finishing a marathon (or half marathon for that matter) that will help you recover properly, help avoid the development of a nagging injury and help you quickly get back to training again. Click here for the list of things to do.

So, You Didn't Run A Marathon...
...But Now You Are Completely Inspired To Run One!
Every year people decide to challenge themselves and run a marathon. It might be something on your "bucket list", you may be doing it for charity, or, you might just want the challenge. The key to completing a marathon safely is preparation...doing the right mileage at the right time. If you are someone who is a novice and are looking for a good plan to help you run your first marathon (or half marathon) click here for a training guide.
Training To Run A Marathon...
...Isn't Just Running!

So you have decided to start training...great! Just remember that training for a marathon isn't just running. A good training program will also include flexibility and strength training. The wear and tear you will put on your legs during the training will be made much easier if you are training on leg muscles that are both strong and flexible enough to support you. Too many runners skip this step and then end up in physical therapy getting treatment for overuse injuries, or, they end up not being able to run the event at all. We have put together a simple program of stretches and body weight strength training exercises that should help to keep you out our offices and on the roads training. Click here for the program...and remember that if you do develop an injury, come see us before it completely sidelines you.
