March Madness Challenge
March is always marked by the NCAA basketball tournament and March Madness. We are carrying that theme over to our workouts. We want your workout madness to include at least 1-2 double workout days per week.
THINGS TO PRACTICE:
1. March Madness Challenge. This month’s challenge is to try and get at least 1-2 double workout days per week. Pick a day or two that are not back to back and perform 2 workouts on those days. This can be a mix of running and strength or any other type of workout. No matter the workout, double it up this week!
2. Dial In Your Cadence. Run cadence is an important marker of your running technique. Cadence refers to how many foot strikes you take per minute. For our definition, we will count every foot strike on both the right and left foot. Ideally, your run cadence should be around 170-180 foot strikes per minute when counting both feet. Running at too low of cadence can lead to injury and is often inefficient. A low cadence, often times, correlates to over-striding and a foot strike position too far in front of the hips. Check your cadence this week while running and make sure your cadence is around 170-180 foot strikes per minute. Many watches can track this feature instantaneously or as an average over your run. Use these metrics this week to improve your running technique!
