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,

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!

Wanting to run more consistently, and to increase my long run distance and total weekly mileage, I was concerned about hip pain due to hip alignment issues. This is an issue I had when I trained for my first half marathon several years ago. Having listened to the Healthy Runner podcast for the past couple years, I knew Duane Scotti could help. I signed up for the four-month strength and running training program and am extremely happy with the results.

The program Duane and Coach Whitney developed for me was exactly what I needed. It was tailored to my needs and to my target race. Coach Whitney was very helpful, and with the biweekly coaching calls, we were able to fine tune the program based off my performance and feedback.

At the end of the program, I completed a 10K trail race feeling strong and pain free.

I highly recommend Duane Scotti and the Healthy Runner training programs.
