Hello TR folks,

I hope you're staying warm these days and/or enjoying all this lovely snow!

I just wanted to let you know my next workshop in Ottawa will be on Sun Feb 26 indoors at the Louis Riel Dome in the east end.

Winter is a great time to work on the form while the mileage is low and the stress of paces is usually lower.

See the link below for all the details:
http://www.ecinc.ca/event-registration/?ee=111

If you have any questions, let me know.

4. ANKLE COMPRESSION IN RUNNERS
 Colin liggett   (General Comments)
skip to next       Back to top
 
Runners are particularly susceptible to ankle compression which can have a very significant effect on their performance and increase the likeliness of injury. Of the runners I treat, I estimate more than 50% have tested positive for ankle compression. It’s not that the joint is excessively being compressed, it’s that the nervous system is mistakenly thinking excessive compression is occurring and is inhibiting key muscles as a safety mechanism.

Inside our joints are mechanoreceptors that are checking for excessive compression. When they are activated, they send a warning message to the brain to communicate that we are about to cause injury in the joint. As a result, the brain decreases the available force output, it’s logic being… “if I’m about to injure myself, I will injury myself to a lesser degree if I cannot generate as much force.”

This safety mechanism should kick in when we jump off the first floor of a building, not when we land one foot in front of another. Unfortunately, for many runners the threshold in the receptors for this warning mechanism to turn on has become extremely low. So instead of landing from a great hight, simply the act of landing on one foot after another while running can cause the brain to inhibit key muscles, causing fatigue, decreasing performance and creating higher risk of injury.

It’s an easy fix with Neurokinetic Therapy. First we have to confirm compression in the ankle joint is incorrectly causing inhibition and then we reset the receptors threshold to occur only when it should. This can easily be accomplished in one session. Now, are you having ankle compression?

8. INJURED? STIFF?
 adam climie   (General Comments)

If you are suffering from recurring/chronic injuries and are finding your training is getting hampered, NOW is the time to act, NOT when you start running again! Get all of the adhesions THROUGHOUT your body released, not just the myofascial ones... Shortened, adhered tissues cause your body to compensate, compensation is painful and is also inefficient. If you want to improve how your body moves, feel younger and hurt less, consider Fascial Restructuring manual therapy. It's different from anything you've tried, and unless you have significant structural damage/degeneration, it works... visit www.fascialrestructuringtherapy.com or email me: climieadam@gmail.com

29er wheelset. Woven carbon rims -- 23mm internal width, 32 hole -- on Hope hubs. 142x12 rear and 100x15 front (thru axle).Shimano freehub.
Front rim, spokes and nipples new this season. Rear rim has seen plenty of use and has some very minor cosmetic scuffs, but is as straight and round as the day it was built. I did replace the drive-side spokes and nipples this year, but I don't think I've even trued it, otherwise. Amazingly strong rims. Hubs are Hope Pro II. The rear hub has been updated with the (stronger) EVO axle and freehub. All bearings are very smooth. Main rear hub bearings were upgraded this season to fancy stainless "shielded" units. Approximately 1600g. Freshly taped with Stans tubeless tape. Can include axle and end caps to convert to regular QR use.

I don't believe people are looking for the meaning of life as much as they are looking for the experience of being alive. - Joseph Campbell

1 week ago we landed at the Canadian Ski Marathon Gold Camp. What a humbling experience. To the volunteers, folks that tended to our campfires all night, to the team who fixed ian's bloodied face, to those that kept boiling water available all night, to the fiddlers, to the Montebello Brewery for their free beer that i couldnt drink, and to the "gold bars" that coached us newbies thru each play by play. I was stunned when i arrived & only thru the kindness and tender moments from those that have done this before, that we made it through the night ready to tackle day #2. I am thankful for the "almost a full moon" saturday night, the pro-tip to keep your meal under your puffy coat to keep you warm, fill your water bottle before bed and tuck it in your sleeping bag and the quick glimpse/hugs with Eric and Gwyn at the start. Ian and i both woke up around 1:00 am and just smiled...he said, "are you having fun?"...I laughed and said yes. It may have been Rick Cadman's unknown sleeping bag rating that made me appreciate the moment. Toes warm...check! The last week of recovery has been difficult to describe. The moment i pulled into gold camp....the feeling of getting the pat on the backpack, to receiving my bail of hay for the night, to the wave from Roger and lolly that we are "over here", to fully absorbing the new friends we met (and slept beside), to smelling the campfire as it dried our clothes for the next day's adventure. I practiced mindfulness throughout the 162 km journey thanks to Miguel Chavez's guidance. Karen Meades, your excruciating story about your blisters during your epic 7-day Mojavi Desert run gave me strength to complete day #2 with blisters. I'm usually very proud of my CSM accomplishment...this year i acknowledge the courage of a skier who passed away (not alone but with 1633 skiers expressing their sympathies, one by one) ...I'm simply thankful to have experienced it with Sereena Trottier, Laurel Johnson, Ardee Bull, Janice Ashworth Gwyneth Norman, Eric Biklo, Gerry Thauvette, Parham Momtahan and Sophia Tsouros. Never again...until next year. Oxo
