This was a well organized race with an excellent crowd and bands everywhere! I finished slower then what I planned, but those hills hit me hard. What I should have been doing: 1. More frequent weekday runs 2. MET strengthening to prepare for all those hills 3. not to cossack squats 2 days before the event. Lessons noted.
What next? Not sure. Thoughts? My deferrment from Marine Corp Marathon should go live tomorrow for October 2022.
Super star, running expert, researcher and overall good guy Jay Dicharry has a new book out: Running Rewired. From the latest Run to the Top podcast, it sounds like a researched based approach to injury prevention and performance strengthening guide for runners. If you are like me and love terms like triple extension, neural drive, proximal stability and periodization this maybe a page turning thriller.
My copy is on order and I am sitting in my hands. The anticipation is like the last Harry Potter book.
But in all seriousness, check out the podcast and listen for yourself. I am a big fan of Jay’s first book: Anatomy for Runners. Highly recommended to my patients and clinicians treating or coaching runners.
