I don’t work with anyone who is particularly interested in running. I hope to use this group as a way to learn from other like-minded individuals and hopefully introduce you to new research and ideas as well.
Click the picture below to be taken to the group page.
I have listed the intentions for this group below.
Goals for this Group
- To learn and teach.
- Grow an online community of clinicians/coaches interested in evidence-based information.
- Post several days a week. In this post I will put a very succinct summary of the article along with a link.
- Categorize these running-related articles for better referencing later on. Below are potential categories with an example article for each. These are just categories to ease searching later on. One article could certainly fit into more than one. And there could be considerable overlap between categories. I may even sub-divide categories later on.
- Example: (Willy, 2016) Patellofemoral Joint and Achilles Tendon Loads During Overground and Treadmill Running
Injuries (even if the paper itself is not about running)- like plantar heel pain, patellofemoral pain, etc
- Example: (Cai, 2015) Low Back and Lower-Limb Muscle Performance in Male and Female Recreational Runners With Chronic Low Back Pain
Exercises/Strength training– again not always specifically running-specific but involve actual exercises that a runner could benefit from
- Example: (Boren, 2011) ELECTROMYOGRAPHIC ANALYSIS OF GLUTEUS MEDIUS AND GLUTEUS MAXIMUS DURING REHABILITATION EXERCISES
Gear (shoes, compression socks, fitness tools, etc)
- Example: (Armstrong, 2015) COMPRESSION SOCKS AND FUNCTIONAL RECOVERY FOLLOWING MARATHON RUNNING: A RANDOMIZED CONTROLLED TRIAL
- (Kuehl, 2010) Efficacy of tart cherry juice in reducing muscle pain during running: a randomized controlled trial
- (McArdle, 1978) Specificity of run training on VO2 max and heart rate changes during running and swimming.
6. At the end of each week, update a pinned (Facebook term for document that stays at the top of the page) text document with a very brief summary for each article. This will be continually updated throughout the year. As an example, I’ll use the Willy study above:
- (Willy, 2016) Patellofemoral Joint and Achilles Tendon Loads During Overground and Treadmill Running
- Summary: When examining 18 recreational runners, knee joint loads were not different between over ground running and treadmill running. However, Achilles tendon loads were greater during treadmill running
7. Create short quizzes for each article and continually add to a larger quiz for the entire year.
8. Ask ‘Questions for Readers’ on each article in order to gain a perspective from other members of the group.
