Coronavirus COVID-19 [Keep Running With Social Distancing]

What Can I Help You With During These Uncertain Times…?

Are you in need of some mental relief (like me) and are looking to get in some exercise during this time of social distancing?

Are you a runner who wants to stay healthy now more than ever for the benefits of your immune system while we try and prevent the spread of this virus 🦠?

 

Click the video below to hear the LIVE training I did on this topic within the Healthy Runner Facebook Group

 

 

What problems are you facing right now with COVID-19 all around and staying active and healthy?

 

Our SPARK Half Marathon Training Group Run Practicing Social Distancing. This picture would have been arm in arm the week before!

 

In this impromptu episode on the Healthy Runner Podcast we addressed LIVE questions that can help you during this time of uncertainty with social distancing.

 

A Few Questions That Were Asked On The Live Episode Within Our Healthy Runner Facebook Group:

 

✔️ If we are federally quarantined…can we still run outside?

 

✔️ If the target race is canceled or postponed, should we continue our training plan or hold off and pick up later?

 

✔️ Since the gym is closed and I can’t take spin or other classes…can I run more or is that asking for trouble?

 

✔️ I am transitioning from running on the treadmill to outside now and I am feeling it, is there something I can do to strengthen my leg muscles?

 

👇 Leave other questions in the comments in the Healthy Runner Facebook group and I will try my best to navigate these unchartered waters 🥺

In best health,

“I don’t have enough words to express my gratitude towards Duane Scotti and the Spark Healthy Runner program. When I started working with Duane, I had been dealing with chronic shin splints/posterior tibialis tendinitis for almost a year.

I had worked with multiple other coaches and physical therapists with little success and was at the point of almost giving up on my love for running. Duane is so kind, thoughtful and knowledgeable as both a physical therapist and running coach. Our first virtual meeting lasted two hours because he was so meticulous in his assessment. His strength and running program is progressive and created so that you can continue to build strength and mileage as you heal. His strength program is unique, effective, and fun.

Additionally, his warm-up routine is awesome and includes drills that over time have made me a more efficient runner. His training platform is easy to use, and he is always readily available to chat when problems or questions arise.

Over four months of working with Duane, I have built back to five days a week of running and am almost back up to my pre-injury weekly mileage and long run distance. Whenever I have flare ups or setbacks, Duane reassures me and makes necessary adjustments so that I can continue to progress in my running journey. I have had so much success with him so far that I have signed on for four more months so that he can help me to continue getting stronger as I train for the Dopey challenge in Disney World.

If you are struggling with a running injury and are feeling hopeless, you have to reach out to Duane Scotti. Of course, you will have to put in a lot of hard work, but with Duane by your side, you will be able to achieve your goals and more. Thank you Spark Healthy Runner for bringing the spark back to my running!”

You can teach an old dog new tricks!!!  I have never considered myself a runner and I knew I needed to be smart about it because I am no spring chicken. Spark preached getting strong and healthy to be injury free and they practice what they preach.  I am soooo glad I made the investment in me!  I finished my half marathon last weekend and couldn’t be any happier!  The program fed me all the steps I needed to essentially learn how to run long distance, build strength, nutrition help, a forum of other runners and probably most important was the 1:1 coaching.  I had no idea how to tackle training for a 1/2 marathon and this program broke all of it down, had it individualized for me and we tweaked as we went to make sure I was staying healthy and strong.  I had so many questions the week prior to my race and Coach Cat was always there for me and answering all the questions and issues I had-and believe me there were a lot!  The biggest benefit I think I got was the strength. I am strong and fit. But most important was what I gained emotionally.  I built confidence and strength I didn’t know I had, even at my age.  Honestly could not have done this without Spark Healthy Runners!

My Healthy Runner journey started after I had battled bilateral achilles pain for a few months and was frustrated how it affected my running. As soon as I talked to Duane I knew I had made the right decision. His positivity, enthusiasm and genuine care are infectious. The training plan that was tailored to me included specific exercises to rehab my injury and I was so excited that I didn’t have to stop running. It took patience to only run slow for a few weeks but I trusted the process and it got me me to where I am now: running pain free. We made adjustments to the plan throughout whenever needed having someone in your corner that is always there with guidance and support throughout the process was invaluable.

I just ran my second half marathon, both with Duane’s coaching, and PR’d by over 9 minutes! I got all choked up in the last mile when I realized that I felt strong and could still kick it up a notch.

I’m so thankful for the Healthy Runner program, community and the entire coaching team for all the support!
