Marathon Recovery

Marathon Recovery

Below is my annual repost on marathon recovery. 

Now that that nonsense is out of the way, here are some ways to promote post-marathon recovery.

  • Move. Cooling down prevents blood from pooling in your legs and helps clear lactic acid. (If you’ve paid attention to my earlier posts, you know that lactic acid levels will return to baseline even if you lay down the moment you cross the line, and lactic acid has nothing to do with soreness, but an active cool ...

Marathon Carb Loading

Marathon Carb Loading

With the NYC Marathon just around the corner, let’s go over a few glycogen loading basics.

Keep in mind that your body can only store about 2,000 calories worth of glycogen. Fully loading your glycogen tank – coupled with prudent race day nutrition – will help ensure that you avoid “hitting the wall”. Despite what the old school used to say, there’s little or (probably) no reason to deplete your glycogen stores before loading. Because you’re tapering and significantly decreasing your ...

26 Tips, 26.2 Miles
OK, the training is all but done, but over the last week there are still details to attend to if you plan to race strong.
  1. Go to the expo as early as possible. If you’re in NYC, don’t give up your home field advantage. As runners arrive from out of town the expo will get more and more crowded. When at the expo, get in, get out. I have never turned down anything that’s free, so am not advocating that you pass ...

NYC Marathon Course Management

Here are a few things we stress to our City Coach and JackRabbit athletes when preparing for the NYC Marathon.

The start is the hardest part of the NYC course as you climb the Verrazano. If you’re lucky enough to start near the front, be careful not to go out too fast. In fact, if you race intelligently it should be your slowest mile of the day because of the elevation gain. If you’re starting toward the back, you may be ...

Atlantic City Half Marathon Results

Very nice work by Liz Corkum at the oh-so-windy Atlantic City Half Marathon. Liz finished in 1:35:11. Though that’s well off her PR, it’s reflective of the conditions, and it was still good for 5th overall in the women’s field, and 3rd in the AG.

Congratulations Liz.

Westchester Triathlon Results

Posted by:

Congratulations to Cousin Brian Sica on his strong performance at the Westchester Triathlon where he finished in 2:13:00 – good for 3rd place in the 25-29 AG.

To our great pleasure, Brian joined City Coach after leaving his previous team, and he’s already making noise. He finished 2013 strong, and we’ll settle for nothing less than global domination from him in 2014.
