This weekend I had the opportunity to attend the RunningETC Endurance Foundations course. It was an informative clinic that introduced a great foundation for understanding the conceptual and scientific basis of endurance training.
If you’re a local area runner, I encourage you to check it out next time it’s offered in the Dallas area this fall. The speakers included were from the the Texas Running Center, University of Houston – Clear Lake, and BSX Athletics.
Coach Joe Boyle from The Texas Running Center focused on the biomechanics of running and the correction of it through microfiber release techniques. He performed a demonstration to illustrate the immediate performance improvements from the techniques.
Dr. Terry Dupler professor at the University of Houston – Clear Lake spoke about the energy systems used during endurance sports such as running and cycling. Also the importance of lactate threshold training was presented through various research data.
Nicole Gould gave some nutritional basics and practical applications for endurance performance.
It was an informative clinic and I highly recommend BSX Athletics training!
