I recently wrote a bit about E bikes, a topic that riles some, enthuses others. I’d like to give my thoughts now that I’ve had one for about a month. I stress that what I’m describing is not a motorbike, not a bike that can run solely on electric motor power, but an Electric assist bicycle. Mine happens to be a Trek Rail, a beast of a bike (weighing in in excess of 50 pounds), with massive 29 inch tires, which are tubeless. It also has adjustable shocks, both front and rear, with dual disc brakes, two brake pistons on each, which is very useful in the mountains of North Carolina, where I have been using it. Now, it’s in Florida for the next month or so. I read a comment on line yesterday from what I call “a purist,” when commenting about E Bikes, he said, “don’t be lazy, ride a real bike, and get a workout, not a coast.” I beg to differ. The saying “don’t knock it til you’ve tried it” comes to mind. Because of the weight, even if using the lowest E assist (called Eco on this bike), it takes real effort and strength to push this bike. What I think Purists ignore (or are ignorant to) is the benefit for those not quite in 100% health can be had. Who says only the most ardent health nut, the elite triathlete, or the licensed category bicycle racer has the right to an enjoyable ride. I’ve ridden bikes for more than 45 years, and plan to continue to do so for another 10-15 hopefully. With an assist where needed, my bike will help allow this goal to happen. As more try them; as they become less pricey, I know E bikes will become a part of our every day cycling.

Overuse Injury Prevention Chris Arrigo, MS, PT, ATC Advanced Rehabilitation The majority of running injuries are overuse injuries. These can occur when increasing volume or intensity too quickly, not giving your body a proper recovery, or regularly overworking weak or tight muscles. Impairments in your running gait can also increase the stress placed on certain areas of the body increasing the likelihood of injury. When you increase running or walking volume and intensity you are overloading your muscles, tendons, joints, and your cardiovascular system to allow the body to adapt and improve in fitness. However, doing this too quickly can cause significant overload leading to injuries. In addition, your running form may also suffer when muscles are chronically fatigued, which also increases the likelihood of developing overuse injuries. So, what is a safe way to increase mileage? In general, you should only increase either overall volume or intensity at one time, not both. A safe way to ramp up running mileage is to increase by no more than 10% per week and take an easy week with less mileage every 4 weeks. In addition, your long runs should not account for more than 50% of your weekly mileage. A dynamic warmup can also decrease the chance of injury by preparing your body for a run or walk. This will improve blood flow to muscles, improve muscle recruitment, and improve coordination and movement patterns. Some examples of exercises that can be used for a dynamic warmup are walking, a slow jog, bodyweight squats, forward and sideways mini-lunges, leg swings, and other running related drills. Another way to help warm up for a run or walk that requires no extra time is to pace the first mile 1 minute per mile slower than your normal pace. Make sure to get the proper warmup that your body deserves. As you are increasing your running or walking volume or intensity it becomes even more important to take recovery seriously. If you have an easy run scheduled after a speed-work day, make sure to stay at a conversational pace and do not let others pressure you into a fast pace. This will allow your muscles to recover and make the adaptations to become a faster runner or walker. It sounds counter intuitive, but you should move slow to become faster. It is important to understand that this might not be the same pace for everyone depending on your level of fitness and what stage you are in with your training. After speed work and races, it is also important to complete an “active recovery.” This means taking some rest and relaxation but also doing some light exercise to keep your body moving and promoting some increased blood flow to the muscles. Types of active recovery may include low impact exercise such as biking, elliptical, or swimming. flraceplace.com

NormaTec compression boots that provide an intermittent compression helping decrease swelling in your legs and improve blood flow return to the heart. Compression socks are another method of compression that can aid in recovery. These provided gentle compression that work for hours to decrease inflammation and improve blood flow return. If you have just completed a race or have an injury, both are great recovery tools. While training load and recovery are important, it is also important to perform regular strengthening exercises to prevent injury. This will make muscles more resilient when overworking them and will reduce the likelihood of injury. The most common areas of weakness in runners that can lead to poor running form and injury include hip strength, foot & ankle balance, and core stability. Having strength and stability in these areas is essential to avoid compensations in gait that can lead to injury. In general, strengthening should be performed at least 2 times per week for maintenance. Muscles that are too tight and limit motion can also increase the risk of injury. There are a couple methods of loosening muscles that you can do at home. This includes performing soft tissue mobilization and stretching. Foam rolling or using a lacrosse ball are good methods of soft tissue mobilization. If you can find a spot in a muscle that is extra tender and has extra tension, that is a sign that this area needs extra attention. If you have certain muscles that tend to be tight, try spending 3-5 minutes on each muscle per day. You can roll until you find a tight and irritable spot and then hold pressure on that spot until it releases or relaxes. You may also roll up and down across a muscle to help improve the glide of the fascia and muscle. Stretching is another method to loosen up tight muscles. Not everyone feels the need to stretch after every run or walk. However, if you have specific spots that get tight, make sure to spend some time on these areas. Some common areas are your calves, hamstring, quadriceps, piriformis, and hip flexors. Another key ingredient to help you avoid injuries is to work on your running form. Advanced Rehabilitation offer a healthy Runners’ Evaluation. This includes a gait analysis, a full physical therapy evaluation including strength, flexibility, and movement pattern assessment, expert running advice, and an exercise plan to correct your impairments, to avoid injury, and to improve performance. A last bit of advice: listen to your body. Pain is common with runners and walkers but is not a normal part of either activity. This pain is your body telling you that something needs attention. If you are having pain or are limping with running or walking, it is best to get help soon. Contact any Advanced Rehabilitation location to schedule an appointment with an expert physical therapist who will get you back to doing what you love as quickly and safely as possible. You can request an appointment on our website, https://advancedrehab.us/request-appointment/. November/December

Our Sandwich

Everyone likes a sandwich so I will use the sandwich as a metaphor to explain the different aspects of our training that are essential to experience an effective well rounded, sustainable, training regime. Let’s start with the bread. The bread is the exterior of the sandwich and what everyone sees. The first slice of bread represents our equipment, gear, and apparel. It would include our goggles, swim cap, bike, helmet, bike shoes, running shoes, visor, race belt, what we wear like our kit. We all enjoy high quality ingredients in our bread. We like our bread to be fresh and good smelling. The care we take in preparing our bread and the exterior of our sandwich represents how well we maintain our equipment so that it is functioning optimally and looking good. The second slice of bread represents our race results. Both slices of bread represent the exterior of our circumstance and what people see. The best bread is whole grain filled with wholesome all natural ingredients like seeds, grains, and free of chemicals. Lettuce represents proper warm up, cool down, stretching, and foam rolling before and after each training session in our effort to protect our body from injury and promote optimum recovery. The lettuce strategically is placed on each slice of bread protecting our bread from getting soggy. The most important part of the sandwich and what matters most in making a good sandwich great is the main ingredient. The main ingredient of our sandwich is the bulk of our training. It represents the aerobic endurance conditioning, the zone in which we can nose breathe, utilizing oxygen efficiently, so we can pace ourselves properly and use fat as a fuel source. This is the part of training that is most beneficial for our overall health and establishes the foundation of our overall fitness. This portion of our training should be about 80% of our total training in volume and or distance. Personally, I find this part of my training the most satisfying and enjoyable part in which I can enjoy fun conversation and social time with my training buddies. I am going to choose hummus as my main ingredient. I love my yummy hummy sandwich filled with tasty, super nutritious, high in protein, satisfying hummus. My hummus is made with purpose and patience, slow cooking chickpeas with simple ingredients like olive oil, lemon, and salt. All the ingredients are blended gradually. Nothing fake is added to enhance the color or shelf life. It’s delicious, nutritious, and satisfying. Next, we add elements to our sandwich that will enhance the greatness of our sandwich. Just like in our training we need to add several other modalities that complement our training in our effort to boost our overall health, perform at our best, feel our best, avoid injury and promote longevity in our sport. These modalities include proper warm up, cool down, tempo work, speed work, stretching, foam rolling, strength training, mental strength training, functional exercises, recovery, sleep, and fueling our bodies with proper nutrition and hydration.

The next ingredient, roasted red peppers, represent speed work, which is high in intensity, above 90% maximum effort and low in volume (5% of total volume) to work our fast twitch muscle fibers, maintaining our agility and keeping us sharp. Just the right amount is important to avoid injury and over training. These peppers are roasted with care to bring out their sweetness. Another ingredient, fresh spinach, represents our tempo work in which we are barely able to nose breathe (78%‐88% max effort) working just under that LT zone teaching our body to delay the onset of lactic acid production. It’s important we not over do the tempo work and limit it the volume of tempo to less than 10% of our training volume. Too much spinach can drown out the taste of all the other ingredients. The next ingredient must be of the highest quality and the right quantity as it can really sabotage our sandwich if we cut corners, skimp, or overdo how we fuel our body. A thick hearty sliced of grilled eggplant represents showing up fueled properly by being well hydrated & fueled with nutritious whole food so my body can have enough vitamins, antioxidants, and enzymes to perform well and recover correctly. The next ingredient needs to be as satisfying and filling as one’s main ingredient to represent sleep & recovery. It’s important we show up recovered and ready for each work out. For me it’s a big grilled tasty organic portabella mushroom grilled to perfection not undercooked and not overcooked. The next ingredient represents strength training in our effort to maintain healthy bone density, good metabolism, and body composition helping us to look good in that unforgiving spandex we wear. I add a minimum of 3 layers(to represent the 3 strength workouts we should do every week) of thinly sliced fresh tomato in my sandwich. The tomato adds to the composition of our sandwich, gives a good flavor, and makes it look good too. It's important we include a key ingredient that adds an element of enjoyment to our training. Maybe it’s alone time, solitude in one’s thoughts, listening to motivating music, an inspiring pod cast, an educational audio book, entertaining movie, show, or the company of people. Olives represent this for me. When training solo I choose to listen to positive enriching content like a podcast, audio book, or pump me up music. I most enjoy training with people (both Kalamata and Spanish olives) help make training more fun, and most enjoyable. The olives are the people that bring out the best in me as an athlete and as a person. Keep in mind, the top slice of bread represents our race performance and our results. Our goal should be for this bread to be wholesome filled with integrity, packed with seeds, high quality grain, making it delicious and satisfying. Most importantly, as we eat our sandwich, let’s reflect on how it tastes and how we feel as we eat? How enjoyable is our sandwich? How satisfied and how well fueled are we after we eat our sandwich? When considering the big picture of your life. Is your sandwich providing you with sustenance?

Sustenance keeps someone or something alive. Sustenance gives support, help, and strength.

So, make your own gourmet scrumptious sandwich that you can savor and enjoy every bite.

Overtraining & The Importance of Tapering WHAT IS OVERTRAINING? Overtraining occurs when a person or athlete trains too hard for too long and they begin to exceed their body’s ability to recover from strenuous exercise. WHAT ARE COMMON SIGNS OF OVERTRAINING? 

Prolonged fatigue

Lack of energy or feeling “refreshed” after regular rest

Plateau or decline in workout performance

Recurrent injuries , such as sprains, tendonitis, stress fractures

Trouble sleeping

HOW TO PREVENT OVERTRAINING?

To prevent overtraining, schedule regular rest days after long or demanding workouts. Take a break from targeting a specific muscle group for 1-2 days. If you are training for a competitive event, tapering before the event is the best way to avoid overtraining. WHAT IS TAPERING? Tapering is defined as a short-term reduction in training load during a period leading up to a competitive event. It is common to incorporate a tapering period over several days before a major competition. Tapering can elicit improvements in both physiological and exercise performance factors.

If you are experiencing symptoms of overtraining, give us a call at 813-207-5027 to see how we can help! 1113 Assembly Dr. Tampa, FL 33607 813-207-5027 pctampabay@gmail.com
