Ep. 47: Running Recovery Tips
We had the distinct honor of teaming up with Coulee Health and O'Brien Physical Therapy to help out at the Grandad's Half Marathon in La Crosse, WI. During our time providing post race soft tissue treatments we seemed to have a lot of reoccurring themes that we would talk about with all of the runners. Well since we were there we figured why not create a short episode and lay down some ideas to help aide in recovery.
Without getting to far into the details in this episode we do outline a lot of the 'simple' things we think you can implement into your recovery strategy to get ready for the next race or just get back and get ready for your next round of training. Check them out and see what you can apply to your recovery strategy.

In this episode we focus on that where we discuss different diets and how Jordan works with his members to help them accomplish their goals with nutrition and performance. Great insight on training and how to help people find what works for them and still get their results. Check it out.
