Our office, The Center for Integrated Medicine, is teaming up with coach Paul Magsombol and Tenacity Performance Training to co-host a FREE runner’s workshop, titled 5 Tips to a 2016 PR. The workshop date is Thursday, March 31, 2016 at 7 PM. Tenacity Performance Training is located at 9428 179th Street in Tinley Park, IL 60487 (click HERE for a Google Map).
There is plenty of running information and misinformation out there on the internet and social media. There is even a sizable list of self-proclaimed running “gurus” that base training off dated principles and personal anecdotes rather than the latest research. Some of these gurus lack systematic processes and procedures to assess runners and adapt their training for performance enhancement and injury prevention. Unfortunately, dogma and misinformation are prevalent.
A range of 30-70% of runners are injured every year. This is a unusually high number, yet you wouldn’t consider running a dangerous sport on par with football, hockey, rugby or some of the extreme (X) sports. Even more runners aren’t able to achieve peak performance. Not everyone can train the same way, race the same way and get the results they want. We are all unique, yet there are some underlying and unifying principles that you should know that consistently lead to exceptional performances and injury reduction.
This workshop covers 2 key topics:
- The scope of the problem: Why is there an unusually high number injured in a “safe” sport? Why could your training get you into trouble or out of trouble?
- Provide 5 tips to stay injury free & PR in 2016
We are limited to the first 30 that RSVP. RSVP by calling The Center for Integrated Medicine at 708-532-2346 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you on Thursday March 31st!
