Running stability workshop

Excerpts from: Running with stability workshop at Taylor Brawner Park in Smyrna

  • It is important to Pre screen with a Physical Therapist, running coach, or Sports Medicine Doctor before running.
  • Saucony Triumph and Guide are good neutral shoes
  • Visit: shoes are sorted by foot type
  • Always stretch before you run
  • Cross train with 1-2 days of core stabilization
  • Never run through pain
  • Running cadence should be ~165-180 (180 strikes per minute is optimal)
    • If your cadence is less than 160 you are over striding and risk LE overuse injuries
    • To calculate cadence count how many times your left foot hits the ground in 30 seconds and multiply by 2.
    • Land with a bent knee
  • Only increase cadence by 5% at a time
  • A great cadence App is “Jog tune” which has music that matches desired cadence
  • Treadmill running is good when increasing cadence to control speed
  • When you can run a 5k at the new cadence it is time to increase another 5%
