CCR at CQPhysio Spring Classic 2013

Posted by on 10/10/13 in Featured, News & Events |

The Cap Coast Runners showed up in force for the first CQ Physio Classic held in Yeppoon. Runners chose from  5km, 10km, 21.1km and Bolt events with  all our members doing CCR proud!

Special mention must go to our wonderful volunteer members for giving up their time to assist on water stations, cheering, setup and clean up and taking new club registrations.

It was a very positive day for the running community in Yeppoon! We are looking forward to next year!

The importance of warm ups and cool downs when running – do you?

Posted by on 06/08/13 in Featured, Running Tips |

Before you set off on your next run ask yourself  – Are my muscles ready for this?

Well as a PT I am constantly encouraging (firmly enforcing!)  my clients to warm up and cool down. But, I still see loads of our local runners jump out of their cars at the beachfront and immediately trot of down the road at a blistering pace! OUCH! So, here are a few general tips on warm ups and cool downs.

An adequate warm up and cool down will prepare your body for exercise and reduce the chance of injury and muscle soreness.

Warm up movements may include walking, high knees, butt kicks, skipping and dynamic stretching. Movements to elevate the heart rate and increase blood flow to the muscles. This should be performed for 7-10 minutes.

A cool down should consist of movements which help to lower the heart rate and relax the muscles. This may include slow jogging, walking and relaxing stretches focusing on but not limited to the primary muscles used. Also for approximately 7-10 minutes.

I can not stress enough the importance of adding the warm up and cool down into your training sessions. Running is something we can do for life, as long as we take care of our bodies in the process!

Until next time – HAPPY RUNNING!
