It's National Running Day and we love the sport so much we are going to celebrate all week!
First, an ode to running. How do we love thee? Let us count the ways!
New York City is alive with the sights and sounds (and heat....) of Spring and it's proving why this is the best time of the year to take running drills to the next level. The days are longer and warmer and they're leaving just about everyone with more energy and joie de vivre. After a long winter inside, there's not much that's better than stretching your legs for a long run through Manhattan's Upper West Side or along the river in Westchester.
Running has long been a popular sport due to its accessibility and cardiovascular benefits. The styles of running are as varied and diverse as the individuals who take part in the sport; from sprinting to marathoning to even a light jog at the park after work, running is a sport in which almost anyone can partake in.
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.
Winter has arrived but you won't let that stop you from hitting the pavement and logging your weekly miles. Whether you hit those New York City streets and brave the weather or you opt for indoor runs, we've got some great advice for you to keep your running regimen strong in these cold winter months.
