Runners, It's almost here!

Note: This post is for anyone that runs and experiences any sort of joint, muscle, connective tissue pain during or after their training sessions. Also, for those runners who know they could run faster if they knew the proper way to run. If you don't want to resolve your running pains or form... this doesn't apply to you.

I've known our resident expert in pose running and DPT Scott Greenberg for 3 years now and it's always a pleasure to hear his perspective on helping his athletes get out of pain and improve their performance in running.

He's stated that many running injuries could of been prevented had the runner chosen the proper shoes or modified their running technique to produce less impact through the joints.

You see, with more efficient running stride and posture you can reduce the damage to joints, muscles, and connective tissue and through this process athletes can gain more enjoyment from their runs, less aches and pains, and faster mile times.

If you enjoy running and want better results or less pain then join Scott for the Pose Running Seminar September, 27th at 2pm here at CFG!

Define Eating Healthy

Typically, when thinking about eating healthy, we consider all the things we love to eat that are

bad for us. Therefore, eating healthy often means eliminating these things from our diet.

I'd like to propose that we change this thought process and consider eating healthy as including

healthier versions of our typical meals in our diet. Put another way, eating healthy means

always striving for maximum nutrition density (nutrients per calories consumed) in what we put

in our bodies. First, this definition takes a positive perspective on improving our diet, rather than

making us think about deprivation. Second, it leads us to get creative and experience things we

wouldn't typically try in our diet in the process. Third, it allows us to think about food in terms of

what it contributes to our health and performance rather than simply calories. As an example:

Old school of thought: Pizza is bad for me. Although I love it I should stop eating it completely.

New school of thought: I love pizza, let's see if I can improve its nutrition content. After a bit of

quality time with google you pull up the following options:


1. If you eat grains: http://www.womenshealthmag.com/nutrition/healthy-new-pizza-recipes

BTW—The trader joe's whole wheat pitas make amazing pizzas! Just load with toppings

and put it in a toaster oven for 8 mins set to 450 F! I love mine loaded with kale,

artichokes, and chicken sausage!

2. Who knew gluten free could be this delectable: http://www.buzzfeed.com/peggy/13-

healthy-and-gluten-free-ways-to-make-pizza#43dw6au (speaking from experience these

are quite delicious!)
