Running Tips from Endurance House

Orange County CA— For Orange County runners, San Diego offers countless races to runners and those looking to get moving this Fall including the iconic San Diego Triathlon Classic this September, the SoCal Youth Triathlon series this October and the O’side Turkey Trot in November. With training beginning, Endurance House, a premier retail location for endurance athletes in Laguna Niguel, is providing runners throughout the city and greater metro, with training tips on how to gear up for their next big race.

  • Invest In A Good Pair Of Running Shoes – This is key for injury prevention! When making a purchase it’s important to: go to a fitting after a workout so your foot is at its peek swell, select a tread fitted for the terrain you plan to workout on, identify your running style (forefoot runner vs. heel to toe), know your arch, test them out!
  • Develop A Training Plan – Create a running schedule of four to five days of running and at least two days of rest. For 5/10ks begin training six to eight weeks prior to race day, two to four months for half marathons and four to six months for full marathons.
  • Find A Friend or Run for a Cause – Help yourself stay motivated by running with a friend, joining a local running group or creating a purpose behind each step of training.
  • Fuel Your Body – Effective workouts demand proper nutrition in order to achieve long-term success. An hour before a workout you should intake low glycemic index carbs including, fruit and grains. Within a two-hour window after a workout, you should consume more proteins over carbs including eggs and lean meats.
  • Take Time To Recover – This is often the most underutilized way to enhance performance. Increase your flexibility and range of motion with a stretch routine, promote circulation by working your joints and release tension in muscles by rolling out with a foam roller.
