Every year we put on a “winter challenge” to motivate club members to get out during the cold dark days of winter. There are 17 Saturdays from Dec 3 to March 25. Members who sign in at the Blackstone Boulevard for at least 12 of 17 Saturday long runs at the Boulevard will win a prize!
Performance Physical Therapy has provided our club with 200 cards with a QR code to distribute to our members. Performance PT currently has 20 physical therapy clinics in the RI area, 10 of which have certified running specialists on staff. Using the card will allow you to identify the clinic closest to your home or work location. The cards are available at club practices from Bob Rothenberg or Rick Ripley.
- Simply scan the QR code on the card
- Select Running Specialist and/or a location
- This will match you with a Performance Certified Running Specialist near you
- Click “request an appointment or call.”
Performance PT offers club members a free 15-minute phone, in clinic or telehealth consultation with a therapist to help determine if physical therapy is needed.
Running is a mostly a linear activity in regards to your joint movements. This results in imbalances in your hip muscles, particularly those involved in rotation. The muscles that rotate your hip help to control your spine and knee positioning and are often ignored in strengthening programs. Here are two exercises from our friends at Performance Physical Therapy to do in less than one minute with one piece of equipment to help keep your hip, knees, and spine healthy.
