Sports Science Basics for Runners
By Dr. David Cosman in Hong Kong
Achieving Your Goals
To achieve goals, it is recommended that you factor in the following:
Efficient technique (GMax technique for example)
Sound nutrition; fuel up wisely
Prevention and prompt treatment of injuries. Strategic and thorough injury rehabilitation can allow you to go back to training safely and efficiently
If you are competing with others, or with the clock, or if you are going for a fun run, there is a safe path that can take you from early training sessions, all the way to the finish line.
If you respect the rigors of the sport and respect your body, use planning and time management. Your goals will also need positivity and self-confidence.
With all this in mind, the basics of running technique preside, and with that I say, “get your gluteals in gear”, focus on the task at hand,… think about running, and enjoy your run.
