Marathon Training Tips from OMBE

From the desk of Jessica L. Molleur, Lic.Ac., DNBAO…

It’s marathon season in Boston which means that OMBE is frequented by runners and athletes alike hoping to finish 26.2 miles in the Boston marathon and other races around the country.  Here are 10 ways to help you train for your race or sport of choice this season.

Start on the Right Foot

How do you prepare for an endurance event that will test all of your physical and mental mettle?  Take a moment to consider your overall health and well-being.  Find a sports medicine specialist to evaluate your physical condition, address biomechanical imbalances, or perform a gait analysis to prevent future injuries.  Developing a pre-training plan with an expert will help you reach an optimal training level and address any underlying issues before you begin to add up the miles.

Get Well

Instead of waiting for the first signs of injury, schedule a “well” check-up every four to six weeks to identify signs of physical stress.  Check-in with a training coach, chiropractor, or strength and conditioning specialist to help you develop a self-care routine during your training.  Athletes are often afraid to seek treatment when they notice the first sign of pain or discomfort.  Treating an acute injury optimizes your chance at recovery and minimizes the risk of long-term damage or chronic pain.

Cross Train

Cross-training by incorporating multiple physical modalities will help you customize a routine, prevent over-training and address areas of weakness.  Substitute different forms of cardiovascular exercise, strength training, speed intervals, or exercise rehabilitation.  Don’t forget to rest.  If you’re training for 26.2 miles or any endurance event, you need one to two days of hard-core rest combined with one cross-training or light training day.

Build Core Strength

Core strength training refers to the conditioning of the stabilizing muscles of your spine, pelvis, and torso.  These muscles provide a foundation for all physical movement.  When you increase their strength, you increase your power, speed, and stride efficiency.  This training season, substitute a Pilates class for crunches. Pilates is one form of exercise that builds core strength as well as being a powerful tool for injury prevention and increasing athletic performance.

Stretch Yourself

You’ve heard it before but you still can’t touch your toes. Would you try stretching if it restored your muscles to their normal length so that they contract at their optimal resting potential? Would you try stretching if it increased your range of motion? You know the routine: warm-up, hold each stretch for 30 seconds, do not bounce, and spend at least 15 minutes focusing on lower-body muscle groups.  Here’s the alternative that we love just as much: the foam roller.  Spend 5-10 minutes rolling out various muscle groups, paying attention to trigger points.  The massage and myofascial release may just help your stride whether or not you can touch your toes.

Don’t Bonk!

Bonking, otherwise known as “crashing” or “hitting the wall” is the dreaded, race-day phenomenon causing endurance athletes to suffer from exhaustion, extreme muscle fatigue, and symptoms of hypoglycemia. In addition to carbohydrate loading, watch for signs of overtraining as you prepare for your event. Symptoms include a higher resting heart rate, low appetite, high blood pressure, weight loss, difficulty sleeping, irritability, and generalized fatigue. If you notice any of these signs, reevaluate your training or see an expert before you get deeper into your workouts.

Discover Massage

If you’ve never had a good excuse to treat yourself to a regular massage, here’s your chance.  Regular massage reduces lactic acid build-up that can cause cramping and contribute to muscle fatigue.   A great sports massage can improve your range of motion while managing aches and pains.  If you can’t find the time to get regular massages during your training, schedule a session one to two weeks before your event, visit the massage tent after you cross the finish line, and have a massage within seven days after your big race.

Belly Up to the Pasta Bar

It’s time to make friends with complex carbohydrates.  Incorporating a nutrition program customized for your refueling needs can be more challenging than completing your first 10K.  Some of you should belly up to the pasta bar, while others will focus on electrolyte replacement, hydration, and increasing essential fatty acids.  Sitting down with a nutritional counselor can take the guess work out of what to eat for those 1,000 meals each year.  Don’t forget those post-run snacks to help refuel your glycogen stores.  Start with a nut-butter and a banana for your muscles (and belly) will thank you.

Stay Local

Sign up for local events to help keep you on track. Choose races that correspond with the mileage you are working towards. The anticipated races will keep you motivated to work towards short-term goals and it’s always good to get SWAG (Stuff We All Get).  Hello, goody bags, t-shirts, energy bars, and coupons!

 

Try Sport Psychology

Endurance training is all about mental preparation.  To prepare for your next event, experiment with different forms of relaxation such as meditation, visualization, and body awareness.  If you don’t know where to begin, try yoga.  Each yoga session, will help you clear your mind, develop powerful breathing techniques, and visualize your sweet race-day success.

Take a Leap!

Ever wish you had more time?  Well THIS YEAR YOU DO!  Leap years give us one extra day at the end of February every 4 years.  This is necessary to keep our calendar in alignment with the revolutions of the earth about the sun.  The earth makes one rotation around the sun every 365.242199 days.  This is also known as a tropical year or a solar year – meaning the time it takes for the sun to return to the same relationship to the bodies that rotate around it.  This relationship is one that we associate with the seasons and the length of sunlight we have throughout the year.  The calendar that we use has 365 days which, if we do the math, comes up a bit short:  almost six hours each year.  After 100 years, our calendar would be off by almost 24 whole days.  2012 is a leap year!

Why We Love LEAP Organics: All About Soap

From the desk of Sarah J. Rogers, LMT…
Rethinking Sapo
Sapo is the Latin word for soap – the root for the process known as saponification (the process that produces soap).  Although it is everywhere you look now and a regular part of our everyday routine, soap has a long history and has an increasingly contentious reputation.  The earliest recorded evidence for the production of soap-like materials dates all the way back to 2800 BC in Babylon where ingredients of ashes, cypress oil and sesame oil were combined to make cleaning agents.    In Ancient Egypt, less than a century later, records indicate that people were bathing using animal and vegetable oils mixed with alkaline salts.  It is this process of combining a fat with an alkaline ingredient that makes what is known as a “true soap.”  Around the world, soap evolved from different ingredients that were locally available:  Greeks were said to have used lye and ashes for cleaning pots, Gauls and Romans were known to have combined goat tallow with ashes from the beech tree, and the Hebrews used locally available salt as their alkaline base – all to produce a similar soap product.  By the 8th century, soap making was well known especially in Europe and by the 16th century finer soaps were being manufactured in small factories using plant oils as opposed to vegetable oils, most especially in Marseilles, France where one of the first soap making plants was established harnessing the local richness of soil perfect for growing olive trees.  When Rome was being excavated starting in 1749, and the layers of ash were being removed from the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius, a most miraculous discovery was made in unburying the partially-buried Roman town of Pompeii.  Among the many fantastic findings in the rubble was evidence of what some historians believe was a soap-maker’s shop.  Although this finding is highly debated and inconclusive, the evidence around the world for the history of developing soap is strong and fascinating to consider.
One of the many things people increasingly enjoy about soap is the lather.  For some, the more lather the better!  Companies have latched onto this highly satisfying attribute and have begun to find ways to cheaply enhance their soaps to make them produce richer and richer lather.  Many companies use synthetic agents such as sodium laureth sulfate and sodium lauryl sulfate.  These detergents are producing soaps that are higher functioning when used with hard water (water with higher calcium count) and avoid producing rings and buildup in the sink/bowl etc – no soap scum YAY, right?.  Although there are obvious benefits to the use of these agents, they have also proven to have irritating affects when used in larger quantities.  Eye irritation or injury and irritating skin reactions from not only the lathering agents, but the synthetic dyes and fragrances are a few examples.  Few companies produce soap that is effective, has a rich lather, is eco-conscious, and health-considerate.  LEAP Organics is a gem in the soap world.  If you read the label, you will notice that the ingredients are clearly labeled and that the intentions of the company are transparently illustrated all over the beautiful box!  Enjoy the history of soap and enjoy a modern and eco-conscious take on a wonderful true soap; you will not be disappointed.

Chocolaty Super Food: Cacao

From the desk of Stacey Nussbaum, HHC…


Cacao is derived of the beans from a tropical evergreen tree.  These powerful beans are full of fiber and loads of antioxidants.  They rival super foods like blueberries, black and green teas. In fact, they have up to four times the quantity of antioxidants found in green tea.  Cacao is also rich in good fat and minerals such as calcium, zinc, iron and potassium. When you eat this super food, you get all the good energy you would get from drinking a Gatorade without the refined sugar.  It’s even been shown that the natural inhibitors found in these tasty morsels can suppress an overactive appetite.  The best part is that cacao has a deep, dark chocolate flavor!

 

You can add cacao powder to your smoothie or try this delicious brownie recipe:

 

Raw Cacao Brownie

{Yields 8-12}

 

1 cup pecans

1 cup dates, pitted

5 Tbsp raw cacao powder

1 Tbsp maple syrup

1/4 tsp sea salt

Place the pecans in a food processor and blend until finely ground.

Add the cacao powder and sea salt and pulse to combine.

Add the dates one at a time through the feed of the food processor while it is running, followed by the maple. Process until the mixture sticks together when pressed between your fingers and the dates are well processed. The mix should still appear to be ‘cake-like’ crumbs.

Press the mixture into a lined brownie or cake pan and press down firmly with your hands. Refrigerate or freeze until ready to serve. Store in an airtight container up to a couple of weeks.

Part 2 of Staying Healthy on the Road

From the desk of Stacy Slawitsky, RYT….

Easy Ways to Exercise at Your Locale

 

For several years, I was a corporate road warrior, traveling to many parts of the country, sometimes for weeks at a time. Let’s face it: work travel can take its toll on your mind and body, and it’s hard to stick to good habits when your daily schedule is always changing.

 

1. Choose wisely: Pick your hotel based on its fitness offerings

I have seen the growth of hotel and gym cross-promotion over the past few years.  There’s Sports Club LA/Ritz Carlton, Exhale/Fairmont, just to name a few.  See if these brands are on your company’s preferred hotel list. Be aware that you may be charged a daily gym fee but most companies reimburse these fees as travel expenses.

Have no fear if you are not staying in a metropolitan area. A Holiday Inn I stayed at in Nebraska had an arrangement where guests could use a local gym in town. The bottom line is, seek and you shall find.

2. Ask and you shall receive: Leverage local gyms in the area

If the hotel gym doesn’t do it for you, check out gyms in the area. I have walked into gyms, explained my desire to maintain my fitness routine away from home and have walked away with complimentary guest passes for the duration of my stay.  It doesn’t hurt to ask, most like-minded fitness managers will empathize with you.

3. Land safely: Do yoga

Sitting on a plane for hours coupled with the stress of getting to your destination can result in stiff joints and an agitated mind upon arrival.  Relieve all of that with the power of a yoga class.  It’s easy as going on Yelp to find a class in your area that suits your needs.

4. Hop to it: Invest in a jump rope

Easy to pack and could be done in the comfort of your room (although this could result in some angry neighbors), jumping rope burns approximately 14 calories a minute (Mayo Clinic) so start jumping!

5. Kill two birds: Go site seeing and get your run on

One of the biggest complaints I have heard and experienced from work travel is not being able to explore the locale you were working in. Get a workout in and check out your locale by mapping a run around town using MapMyRun (www.mapmyrun.com).

 

6. Most important: Listen to what your body needs

Be mindful that any kind of travel can be physiologically taxing so listen to your body. I used to think that my workouts always had to be at maximum intensity. So on the road I would push my limits and then wind up being less productive at work because I was so drained from the travel/workout combo.   Remember that a 20 minute walk around town is better than nothing so if that’s what your body is craving then go with that!

Would love to hear your tips for exercising on the road!
