Marathon training is about more than strategically adding miles and then tapering at the right times. Whether you have a series of marathon finishes under your belt or you're getting started on your first 26.2 miles you should be considering physical therapy in your marathon training preparation.
You trained hard, you ran your best, and you finished the NYC half marathon like a champ!
Now it's time to rest and recover like a champ, too. Most people have a rigid training schedule they adhere to, but not everyone knows they need to pay attention to how they recover just as much as they need to prepare and train for race day. Your recovery plan will set the tone for your next marathon and will help color how you remember this one.
On February 25th at 9 AM our stellar therapists will gather at both of our locations in the Upper West Side and Westchester to offer runners across New York get the low-down on their stride and gait.
No marathon training program is complete without a professional running analysis. In fact, you can avoid injury and cut time off your personal record by working with a physical therapist as you start logging miles in preparation for the big race. Good thing we have a complimentary running analysis in both our Westchester and Upper West Side Physical Therapy offices.
If you've been planning on getting in shape for the new year, have goals of tackling marathons in 2017, or just want to get back into running after getting injured then this is a day you really won't want to miss. Our therapists coupled with our Noraxon technology will have you realizing dreams, shaving seconds off of your personal records, or just have you back on your feet, pounding the pavement.
