Written by Nancy Clark, MS, RDN, CSSD on 09 June 2019.

Mental Running Recovery

Written by Richard Ferguson, Ph.D. on 09 June 2019.

Much has been written in scholarly journals and even popular running publications concerning fatigue and overtraining in runners. If training load is high and recovery from the training is compromised in some way then a state of overtraining may exist. Most people seem to concentrate on the physiology of overtraining and fatigue while ignoring the psychological aspect. In many cases runners are not actually running too much, they’re simply not properly recovering from the running they are doing.  Physical and psychological factors can inhibit the ability to recover and adapt to training.  More emphasis should be placed on recovery rather than on miles run when discussing fatigue and possible over training.

Runners’ Club of Greater Cincinnati did not get off to an auspicious start.

on 23 May 2019.

The forerunner of the current club, Clifton Track Club, began with a few diehards in mid-1976 when a notice was placed in the window of the Clifton Town Meeting Hall Building in Cincinnati seeking partners for one to three mile runs. In November 1976, the Clifton Track Club and Joggers Association -- no shame back then in being called a “jogger” -- was officially formed with about 40 members.
